Strong & Beautiful Nail Shapes – Top 3 Best Fiberglass and Silk Nail Wrap Kits of September, 2019

Discover The Secret of Silk Wraps

I’ve always liked the sound of silk wraps – alluring and exotic, a secretive practice that only a few are allowed access to. Turns out, I was sort of right. You may also see silk nail wraps associated with fibreglass nails – an increasingly popular method of making natural nails stronger and appear healthier.

How to DIY silk wraps

Equipment:

Nail polish remover
Resin
Spray Setter
Silk Wraps
Sharp Scissors and Tweezers

After doing my own silk manicures a good few times now, here’s a couple of tips:

  • Resin sets quickly, so always wipe the bottle top and keep the lid on
  • Store the delicate silk wraps in a box, separate from the rest of your kit
  • Use tweezers to apply the silk as you don’t want it to absorb oils from your skin
  • When spraying the setter, keep about 1.5 -2’’ away
  • Apply enough resin to cover the mesh

Know we know what to do, let’s have a look at the best selling silk nail wrap products

1) Backscratchers Silk Nail Wrap Kit

 

What Makes It Great

This kit, from the aptly named Backscratchers, contains everything you need to start doing your own silk wraps, including tips, resin, and of course, the silk wraps themselves. Professional quality, incredibly easy to apply, and awesomely stylish, I love this kit. It also includes self-adhesive fibreglass wraps, which are applied using exactly the same method as the silk ones.

Where It Could Be Improved

Some may feel the price is a bit excessive, however you won’t need to buy any extras for a good long while.

The Final Verdict

This is an awesome kit for both beginners and professional nail techs. It’s going straight in my manicure box - fantastic!

2) Supernail China Silk Wraps

 

What Makes It Great

Containing 40 self-adhesive silk wraps, with a range of sizes, these are great for nail extensions, repairs or improving the surface appearance of your nail. They’re a useful addition to any mani kit.

Where It Could Be Improved

It’s a shame with a product this good that it doesn’t come with glue or resin.

3) NPD Spray-On Activator

 

What Makes It Great

For the included silk wraps, this resin activator is awesome. Just a light spray is all you need to rapidly set and harden the resin, so the bottle will last for lots of manis. Once set, your silk wrap nails are more versatile and natural looking than gel or acrylic.

Where It Could Be Improved

The odor is quite strong on opening the bottle, but as you use so little, it soon fades.

9.3Expert Score
The Final Verdict

This is a super effective resin activator spray that does exactly what it’s meant to do.
