What is Tip Application?

Nail tips are perhaps what comes to mind when thinking about fake nails. They are made out of acrylic plastic and act as – you guessed it! – your nail tips. They’re glued onto the nail plate and form a base for applying gel or acrylic to.


They are adhered to the natural nail to add extra length and to serve as a support for nail enhancement products. Tips are combined with an overlay, a layer of any kind of nail enhancement product that is applied over the natural nail and tip application for added strength.
