For everyday wear, acrylic nails in simple single shades are available. These are just perfect for a workday or for a simple elegant look.  These are generally made by applying a coat in the inside of an inverted mould and allowing it to harden.  A clear and smooth finish is what we obtain after the final coat.

If you want to get your nails attached, get it in a good nail bar. They will do a clean job for you and the process is also done with mild chemicals that do not harm your skin or your nail enamel.  Some nail bars use glue which has vitamin E to add some sheen to your natural nails.

The only downside is that you have to maintain them properly. No chewing the nails, else they look quite messy. Remember to take off your acrylic nails in a week’s time or at the most after two weeks, else the chemical could be harsh on your natural nails making them brittle. Its all good as long as it is for a short time, so go ahead with these colorful pieces of style.
