About the heading Artificial Nails in Yellow Pages
Artificial nails, also known as fake nails, false nails, nail enhancements or nail extensions, are coverings placed over the fingernails as fashion accessories. Some artificial nails attempt to mimic the appearance of real fingernails as closely as possible, while other designs are decorative and fashionable. Artificial nails are manufactured from a variety of materials. The most commonly used forms are acrylic nails, gel nails and shellac nails.
Artificial nails require regular maintenance which means they need to be touched up by a qualified nail technician every two to three weeks. The advantages of artificial nails is that they are more durable than natural nails; the nail polish applied to artificial nails lasts longer and does not chip. Artificial nails rarely break and can enhance the beauty of your natural nails. Nail art can be applied to artificial nails. Most beauticians have qualified nail technicians working from their premises. There are also many shops that now specialise in artificial nails and nail art.
If you are interested in becoming a qualified nail technician or nail artist you can find courses at beauty schools, while many beauticians also offer courses through their own premises. TAFE also runs a variety of courses for people wishing to become professional nail artists. If you are looking for information on artificial nails look under this heading in Yellow Pages®.
