Enhance Your Nails With The Top 3 Best Fibreglass Wraps of July, 2019

Get Strong Natural Nails With The Fibreglass Method

I’ve always liked the sound of fiberglass nails – ultra durable, with the strength and sharpness to cut through…okay, so maybe a bit of an exaggeration. They do look super sexy though!

Fibreglass nails are commonly applied using silk nail wrap kits. Although not many nail technicians offer it as an option yet, favoring the ever popular gel nails. So this newer finish is often overlooked. Fiberglass is perfect for strengthening and repairing your natural nails, and can create a strong looking nail extension. It has many benefits over gel or acrylic:

  • Produces a naturally flexible nail
  • Creates a thin, natural looking nail
  • Much less prone to breaking
  • Can be used to repair natural nails
  • Creates a very strong nail extension
  • Quick to apply
  • Easily polished
  • Hassle-free removal

What do I need for fiberglass nails: Nail polish remover; resin; spray setter; fiberglass bundles; sharp scissors and tweezers.

Method:

  1. Using the polish remover, make sure your nails are clean and grease free
  2. Lightly buff the nail bed, and push back the cuticles
  3. Apply tips if you require them
  4. Cut the fibers to fit your nails, leaving a 1mm margin around the cuticle
  5. Apply to the nail, pressing down firmly on the backing
  6. Cut any excess fiber from the free nail edge
  7. Apply a thin layer of resin, ensuring the fibers are covered. Avoid getting any on the cuticle
  8. Wait for a minute, then spay with the setter
  9. Apply another layer of resin
  10. Spray with setter
  11. Repeat a couple of times
  12. Lightly file and smooth the surface and free edge of the nail
  13. Shape the nail
  14. Wipe over with polish remover
  15. Apply a top coat and cure
  16. After doing my own fiberglass manicures a good few times now, here’s a couple of tips:
  17. Resin sets quickly, so always wipe the bottle top and keep the lid on
  18. Store the delicate bundles of fiberglass in a box, separate from the rest of your kit
  19. Use tweezers to apply the fibers as you don’t want it to absorb oils from your skin
  20. When spraying the setter, keep about 1.5 -2’’ away
  21. Apply enough resin to cover the mesh

So now we know what to do, let’s have a look at the best selling fiberglass nail products!
