Get Naturally Beautiful Looking Nails with Solar Nails

March 12th, 2008 · 26 Comments

Giving a new twist to artificial fingernails is the use of Solar Nails. Though more expensive, the use of these nails are definitely worth your money. Not only do they look natural despite the fact that they are artificial, they also last longer compared to cheaper varieties of artificial fingernails.

Solar Nails are the upgraded counterpart of Acrylic or artificial nails. It is applied quite differently from Acrylic nails. Where Acrylic nails are placed on the nail bed, the Solar variety are applied in a two step process. The white tip is placed first, followed by the pink natural-looking artificial nail. Due to its appearance, Solar variety nails commonly resemble a French manicure.

There are a lot of advantages when you choose to have Solar artificial nails applied. First of all, unlike artificial nails these variety need to be refilled only once every three weeks. This is a more convenient option especially if you cannot invest the time to constantly have your artificial nails refilled. Refilling your nails less often is also a much more economical choice.

Tanning doesn’t have to be a problem when you put on these upgraded artificial nails variety. Unlike Acrylic nails that turn yellow when exposed to too much sun or radiation from tanning salon, Solar nails do not turn yellow at all. Making it look more appealing together with your perfectly tanned skin. This nail investment will surely not go to waste.

Solar artificial nails are also known for their durability. They do not chip easily like Acrylic nails. Since Acrylic nails are applied on the nail beds, when the nail grows the artificial nail has a tendency to break. With the Solar variety, you get longer lasting nails. Another plus for Solar artificial nails is that they do not possess the potential to damage your real nail. As these nails are not extensions like Acrylic nails, it won’t damage your real nails no matter how long you have the Solar variety applied. There are a lot more advantages to Solar artificial nails such as a natural shine that does not require nail polish and the option of freehand designs on your newly applied nails. So choose wisely because when beauty is on the line, Solar Nails will definitely not let you down.

  • 3 Jenny // May 9, 2008 at 5:45 pm

    They do not need a UV lamp to be applied. In all my searching, I was never able to find anywhere in NYC that applies Solar Nails. Most places didn’t even know what they were!

    solar nails are very popular in texas. all the nail salons in the area where i live (dallas) offer this version of the acrylic nails. i have worn acrylic nails for years because i bite my nails. i did not know about solar nails until i noticed how beautiful a friend’s nails were one day at lunch. she told me they were the solar version of the acrylics. they do cost more because they are more labor intensive but they are well worth it. they last twice as long and do not turn yellow. i love them and will never go back.

    I have had the solar nails done in virginia and I love them. They don’t chip, turn yellow like your other nails do. I have found they don’t even turn yellow when you are using household chemicals like bleach and strong cleaners. They are well worth the extra money I will never go back to the others.

    i do agree, solar nails are actually better. i was debating for the longest on whether or not i wanted to try solar nails, one day i was like wat the hell and went for it. its been almost 3 weeks since i’ve gotten them and i’m getting ready for a fill. they still look great. and it’s true, they do not chip as easily as acrylic. go to the right place and u’ll be satisfied.

    I just had solar nails put on and I love them. I am also a nail bitter and began to bite these. Where I use to chip nail polish off and then have to keep going in to get them repainted, I was able to chip the topcoat gel off but they still look great. Because the color goes all the way down there was no way for me to chip the color off. Now I have stipped biting them altogether.
    I have read that you have to be careful because a lot of salons say that their pink and whites are solar and they aren’t. Whatever mine are, I love them and I will never go back.

    I had my solar nails done in Dallas while vising my girlfriend. I came home and need to find a place in either PA or NJ to refill. I love them! Please help me find a location….I’m desperate.

    I am from Texas and have been wearing Solar nails for quite some time. I moved to NC and can not find ANYONE who even knows what a Solar Nail is. One salon attempted to pass acrylic off as Solar, telling me she had to polish them or they would turn yellow. SOLAR NAILS DO NOT TURN YELLOW. I wish someone here did do them. I miss my nails. I refuse to wear Acrylic.

    I LOVE my Solar nails!! I’ve had them nonstop for a year and a half. In NC, there are THREE salons near me in south Charlotte (near Hwy 51 and Providence, also Hwy 51 and Carmel Rd).

  • 12 Barbara // Aug 11, 2008 at 3:00 pm

    I love my solar nails. Never chip and very strong. Mine are done in Vernon, NJ and there is a place in Wantage, NJ also.

    I just moved to TX from Ohio. I was told that solar nails are not popular up there–they don’t do well in the cold?????? dont know if that’s true, but that’s what they said at my salon.

    Where can I find Solar Nail supplies? I keep hearing about them from out of town clients, yet haven’t had any luck finding much out.

  • 16 Patty Norton // Aug 21, 2008 at 12:27 pm

    HELP! I have a small salon in Michigan where I am also one of the nail techs. We have Southern clients ask non-stop if we offer Solar Nails. Where is there more information available , and who are suppliers of the product. Also, any idea how we can find out where classes in application might be available? Any help would be so appreciated!

  • 17 Sandra // Sep 22, 2008 at 11:41 pm

    There is no such manufacture that will claim the solar nail rage, they have no idea what it is. If you go to a salon and ask to see the product name you will get a different answer at each location, so what are we really getting for all that money? So if these nail tech’s want to let the rest of us tech’s in on the secret, or is it a banned product.

    What’s the difference between GEL nails & Solar nails? I’m confused here.
    I love my gel nails, worth the extra $, but sounds like Solar is a better option, esp. if fill-ins are less often….

    Thanks! Carrie

    HELP!! I just moved to Indiana from TX and cannot find anyone here who can fill my solar nails decently. They all SAY they know how but each time they look horrible! I am on the border of Indiana in Richmond, so I could easily drive to OH for a decent salon….I’ll go as far as needed to get decent fills again. Please help!

  • 20 Kristina // Dec 30, 2008 at 3:22 am

    Hi…I got my first set of solar nails two and a half weeks ago and I need to get them filled soon but I would like to know how they do it? Do they just do the pink part fill or do they do the white part too?

  • 21 Paula // Jun 7, 2009 at 7:55 pm

  • 22 Vicki Phillips // Jul 23, 2009 at 2:13 am

    can you tell me of a nail salon that does Solar nails in the Del City, Oklahoma area?

  • 23 Cindy // Jun 30, 2010 at 10:13 pm

    Cosmetologist – Gone Nails full time. First off I need to explain a few things. Nails should break when enough force is applied. That will keep the nail bed from major trauma. Nail enhancements should break as well. When you have broken a nail and the enhancement has not you risk major problems. I have seen this up close and personal. Tried to soak the enhancement off and it took 3 hours. This tells me that and illegal product has been used called MMA. The reason so many discount nail salons use this monomer (liquid) is price. EMA the safe alternative is 3 times more expensive. I will say that discounted prices are usually the first sign however not always. I could not afford 55.00 for a full set – so I do not charge those prices for my clients. And yes my products are expensive and cut into my take-home pay. I love nails! I also try and educate my clients to the dangers of MMA. What I am finding are that many of the discount salons are out to make a quick buck. Which is also they service so fast. Please ask what product brand they are using for your nail services (hint just because you see a name brand polish means nothing). As far as “solar nails” That is a trademark of CND Creative nail Designs as in solar oil and Radical SolarNail and is an acrylic and nothing more. Gel nails are Gel. No powder but gel in a pot. Resins applied to the nail and then dipped into a jar of powder are called acrylic dips or powdercoats. So Don’t be fooled. Be smart, ask questions!!!

    a few yrs ago i got acrylic nails put on, i did go to walmart not the best thing, within 4 days i could see like water underneathe the nails. I for some unkown reason went back he told me i had infection and he ripped them off! i didnt know better this was my first step. so i went to a better nail salon recommended my aunt who has gone there for 20 yrs. she has never had a problem. i bought my own tools, they did look so much nicer but again few days later again it lookd like water underneath the acrylic nail the tech told me to go home and soak in fingernail polish remover i did but again i had a nail fungis which tok forever to heal. was this because not put on right and water got under of could i be allergic to the glue or acrylic? would i do better with solar? my son is getting married this wk and i wanted to do my nails
