Nails often become brittle, weak and break easily. These are signs that your nails require a strengthening or vitamin-enriched treatment to bring them back their health. Nails lose their strength and break due to stress, poor nutrition, lack of vitamins, nail biting or simply due to everyday life, such as cleaning, dish washing or opening mail. A liquid silk wrap works as a type of armor for nails, strengthening them and making them healthier.
Liquid silk wraps are made of actual silk. They are pieces of fabric which are cut to mimic the nail shape, then applied to nail and sealed with a liquid silk wrap sealant. The nail is buffed and the result is a smooth layer on the nail. The silk fibers in a silk wrap strengthen your natural nails. They also act as a natural barrier by protecting nails from damage which causes them to break easily. With the silk wrap, nails are stronger and less prone to breakage.
With the silk wraps, nails appear smoother and healthier. The silk wrap fills in ridges and smooths bumps so that the nail surface looks flawless. Silk wraps are delicate and more gentle than other smoothing products such as acrylic.
Besides making nails smoother, healthier and stronger, a liquid silk wrap can hide damage. It can be used as a temporary coat to cover up a damaged nail while strengthening it and protecting it from further damage. The nails doesn’t need to be cut off but can grow out on its own. Liquid silk wraps can also hide damage caused by artificial nails. They act as a glue by strengthening and protecting damaged or cracked synthetic nails.
As a Base
You do not need to give up your favorite nail polish color when using a liquid silk wrap. Silk wraps can be worn under other nail polish. Use the silk wrap as a primary base, allow it to dry, and apply one or two coats of your chosen nail polish. The liquid silk wrap will work its magic while being completely hidden.
Liquid silk wraps make nails look natural compared to synthetics such as gel nails or acrylic nails. They are thinner than artificial nails and therefore can get damaged more easily. Although silk wraps protect nails and make them stronger, their material is thin and delicate, making them more fragile than other synthetic nails. Because of this, silk wraps are not an ideal choice for an active lifestyle.
