What is the difference between silk wraps and acrylic nails?
Acrylic nails, they rough up your natural nail to make the acrylic adhere to them, they are raised (unnaturally), they can lift and you can get a fungus. On the other hand, silk wraps are just a thin layer of sticky backed silk that goes over your natural nail. They don't have to damage your nail to apply them, they don't lift, and they aren't raised in a freakish manner like acrylics. Basically they put the ';silk wrap'; on your nail and apply resin or glue over it, buff it, and polish. You go in for ';fills'; ,same as acrylics, about every 2 weeks. If you want to remove them you can without the same damage you would have if you removed acrylics. Silk wraps are better, they basically just let you strengthen your natural nail, acrylics mask it.
