The different systems for artificial fingernails
In the past, nail design was understood as the embellishment of fingernails with nail polish. Nowadays UV gel can be used to design beautiful and real looking fingernails. UV gel is a gel-shaped plastic that is applied to the fingernail with a special brush and then cured by the action of UV light. The fingernail gel can be used to strengthen natural nails as well as to artificially lengthen the nail. If the nail designer knows his trade, a well-made artificial nail can hardly be distinguished from a natural nail.
In addition to modelling with UV gel, artificial acrylic fingernails are becoming increasingly popular. Acrylic is a 2-component system consisting of acrylic powder and acrylic liquid, which is mixed to a pasty mass and also applied to the nail with a special nail design brush. Unlike UV gel, which is cured by light, the powder-liquid combination dries in the air. Depending on the field of application, different powders are available.
No matter which system is used, a sound background knowledge of the anatomy of the fingernail and nail diseases is indispensable for the user.
