Fiberglass nail, a revolutionary technique

Despite not being as popular as the gel or acrylic nail, the fiberglass nail has been proving to be much better than the two previous options, first because it is much more resistant and doesn't break so easily and second because it stays with a very natural look as if it were your own nail.

If you haven't tried it yet, it's worth taking the test to see the result for yourself, of course it's necessary to choose a well-qualified and experienced professional to do the procedure so you don't have problems with the application and also not run the risk of fiberglass comes off.

For the whole process to be carried out, several steps are necessary, so it can be a little time-consuming now in relation to the difficulty, it varies from person to person, but the more you do, the more practice you get.


1 – First, the nail is cut if it is too big and then a cleaning is done to remove nail polish and dirt.

2 – Then a sandpaper is passed that will remove the oil and shine from the nail, this step will also help in the better fixation of the fiberglass.
