Gel and acrylic nails can damage your natural nails over time, unlike “Fiberglass Nails”. You can read here how you can achieve a gentle manicure and why it is better.
For a beautiful and, most importantly, long-lasting manicure, most of us opt for gel or acrylic nails. Although these are pretty to look at, they are unfortunately quite harmful to the natural nail in the long run. The gentle solution: “Fiberglass Nails”! With this nail trend, you can conjure up long, well-groomed, and stable fingernails that look super natural.
“Fiberglass Nails”: That’s behind the trend
As the name suggests, the “Fiberglass Nails” are made of fiberglass. This is a very thin, cloth-like material that is made up of many small threads. It is attached to the edge of the natural nail with a special resin glue and then sealed with another layer of glue. The glue ensures that the fiberglass 🛒 hardens and can then be filed into shape with a nail file. You can extend your natural nail with the fiberglass material as you wish.
And because it is very fine, it adapts perfectly to the nail and looks very natural. Finally, you can paint and decorate your fingernails.

You should keep this in mind with “Fiberglass Nails”.
“Fiberglass Nails” are a great alternative for anyone who prefers a natural look on their fingernails and wants a manicure that is as gentle as possible. Since the fiberglass is very thin, the nail design lasts for a maximum of two weeks before it needs to be renewed.
Note: If the material flakes off in the meantime, air pockets can form between the nail and the fibers, into which water can penetrate. In the worst case, the natural nail becomes moldy. As soon as you notice air spaces, it’s best to take your fiberglass nails off. Luckily, this works very easily with nail polish remover containing acetone 🛒 . You can then remove any residue with a buffer. Since this process dries out the fingernails quite a bit, you should finally apply a nourishing nail oil.
