Super Nail Swiss Silk Nail Wraps

If you like long nails like I do, this product is a must.  I discovered these years ago.  I’m still on my original package.  I just purchased another one yesterday because I had a coupon for 15% off my entire purchase at Sally Beauty.

Super Nail Swiss Silk Nail Wraps are $4.99 for a package of 40.  They come in various sizes and are self adhesive. They are pre-shaped in a nail shape, so you don’t have to trim too much off.  I have broken nails completely off and have been able to save the nail.  Lately I’ve been using several layers to make my nails super strong. I cover the entire nail with the wrap, then cover completely with brush on nail glue. Let dry, then apply more nail glue.  You may need to buff them with a fine grade nail file. I then apply my favorite basecoat, also available at Sally Beauty. Gelous Nail Gel basecoat for $5.99.  It’s a thick basecoat,  but it’s the best I’ve ever used.

I currently have three nails with silk wraps on them.  I’ve had up to five nails at a time with the wraps. They are awesome! For extra strength, I brush nail glue behind the nail with the wrap.  Just make sure when you change polish to use a non acetone polish remover.  Otherwise you will weaken the nail wrap.super-nail-swiss-silk-9-11-16
