Artificial nails

Artificial nails, also known as fake nails, false nails, fashion nails, nail enhancements, nail wraps, or nail extensions, are extensions placed over fingernails as fashion accessories. Some artificial nail designs attempt to mimic the appearance of real fingernails as closely as possible, while others may deliberately stray in favor of an artistic look. Unlike most manicures, artificial nails require regular upkeep; it is recommended that they are attended to, on average, every two weeks. Nonetheless, their versatility in terms of shape and design and comparatively high durability are some advantages they hold over other types of manicures.

Seafoam Green

My nail guy decided to do something special for me one day. This greenish-teal color is my favorite color and the gold really accents it nicely. LOVE IT :)

My Nails Over the Years

This is a collage of my nails over the years. When I was younger I was always fascinated about what it took to get fake (artificial) nails. When I reached the appropriate age my mother allowed me to get fake nails and every since I love them and they are an extremely easy way for me to grow my real nails out.
