Many FingerTips clients never get asked where they get their nails done - because they look so natural no one knows they are acrylic.
Acrylic nails are strong nails, they don’t have to look like fake nails.
On the other hand if you want decorative, the sky is the limit. We have a huge (and I mean HUGE) range of accessories, glitters, acrylic colours, tinsels, rhinestones, jewel shapes and stickers. Stickers with flowers, butterflies, spiders, and even Twilight.
For a classic look we have nail polishes in every shade. Or go French, with colour, hearts, stars petticoat lace or classic white tips.

Acrylic nails work for everyone; nail biters, people with thin or damaged nails, ridged nails, nails that break easily. You can wear acrylics in the office, in the garden, with children, while cleaning.
Acrylic nails don’t have to be long, nor do they have to be squared off (although they can certainly be both if that’s what you desire). Choose a shape, length and style to suit your lifestyle.
Gel vs. Acrylic
Your nails are dead. They don’t breath, and properly applied nails shouldn’t damage your nails. Any coating over the nail (even thick nail polish) may block production of the natural nail hardener. How quickly this natural nail hardener returns to your nails differs from person to person.
Gels are just another form of acrylic. Both are applied in a similar way. Your nail should be lightly buffed to increase adherence, then covered with a form of acrylic, then buffed for final finish. One process is no better than the other. Some people find gels a softer acrylic, but it is very much a matter of personal preference. At FingerTips we believe acrylic nails are the right choice for most nails.
Gloss gels make great hardwearing topcoats to protect your acrylics.
