If you go tanning at a commercial tanning salon and also have artificial nails, you probably already know that acrylic nails turn yellow when exposed to ultraviolet light. Some people make certain provisions to stop their acrylic nails from yellowing, such as wrapping Band-Aids around their fingertips or by hanging their hands outside the tanning bed. While these methods are successful in blocking UV rays, the tan lines they cause are even more noticeable than yellow fingernails.
Here, at Shawnessy Nails Spa, we want you to know that there is a simple solution. Thanks to solar nails, it is now possible to get your bronze on without affecting the color of your acrylic nails. Solar nails are relatively new to the artificial nail scene, but they’re quickly gaining popularity in the Calgary area and it’s easy to see why. Solar nails are durable, long-lasting, and survive under UV bulbs. So you can say goodbye to Band-Aids and hello to radiant, color-lasting solar nails.
Are Solar Nails just a fancy term for Acrylic Nails?
No, solar nails are a type of acrylic. Many people believe that solar nails are merely a marketing strategy used by nail salons, but this simply isn’t true. While solar nails contain many of the same chemical ingredients as acrylic and are applied in a similar way, there are a few major differences. Unlike acrylic nails, solar nails are finished through a buffing process, which means you don’t have to wait for them to dry. Come into Shawnessy Nails Spa today and see for yourself!
Why choose Solar Nails?
While solar nails are more expensive than acrylic nails, the long term effects definitely outweigh the initial cost. When you look at photographs of your prom or wedding night, you don’t want the focus of the photo to be strange, yellow nails.
