What is Silk wraps?

  • Silk nail wraps are a type of synthetic nail reinforcement or nail extension in which pieces of silk fabric are wrapped around natural nails.
  • They’re also commonly used to provide strength and structure to brittle, chipped, split, and damaged nails.
  • They can also serve as a protective layer over a broken nail or a nail that hasn’t been chipped all the way off, allowing it to grow fully without further damage.

Benefits of silk?

Great for brittle or damaged nails

  • Silk wraps add structure to weak or damaged nails, helping protect them against breakage.
  • How is this achieved? The resin used in this type of nail extension hardens into a solid, durable coating that helps fortify the natural nails and shield them against injuries.
  • Additionally, the silk wraps themselves protect the natural nails from exposure to chemicals that can weaken them, such as those found in dishwashing soaps and household cleaning solutions.
  • This way, the nails get the protection they need to grow longer, stronger, and heathier.

Effective at conceiling nail problems

  • Aside from allowing damaged nails to heal, silk wraps also effectively cover up visible signs of damage like chips, scratches, and discoloration.

Lightweight feel

  • Silk wraps are generally more breathable than even the highest-quality acrylic plastic or gel polish. They’re also thinner and more lightweight.

How to apply?

  1. Gather all the necessary tools you need, including pre-cut or full sheets of silk wraps, a nail buffer, a clear or colored top coat, and a nail adhesive specifically formulated for silk wraps such as Brush-On Glue.
  2. Trim your nails to your desired length, then file and buff them to create a smooth, even surface.
  3. Clean your nails again.
  4. Check the size and length of the silk wraps against your nails, and cut, resize, or adjust each wrap accordingly.
  5. Apply a thin layer of the adhesive onto your nails, then attach the wrap to your nail carefully.
  6. Seal your silk-wrap nails with a clear or colored base coat.
  7. Once the base coat is cured, buff your nails again.
  8. Follow the rest of the procedure of gel nails.
