What are acrylic nails?

Some refer to acrylic nails as fake nails. Tips are glued on the end of the natural nail to extend the nail and acrylic is then applied over the entire nail.  Many use white tips for a new set, however, some people like to have clear tips with color or gel polish on them. Additionally, you can get the new colored tips. We use powdered colors for colored tips for better looking nails.
