Hi Marie, I think you are right about your college tutor!! ok, there are generally two types of fabric used, silk or fibreglass, they are both used in the same way (correct me if I'm wrong wrap geeks as I don't do wraps), you can either use them over tips for enhancements or on the natural nail for a 'wrap'. If you have recently qualified then it's down to your tutors bad teaching methods that you don't know these basic facts and I think you are very wise to look into further training, I trained with both Ezflow and Creative and they were both fab. So, silk nails are silk nails and fibreglass nails are fibreglass nails (does that make sense?) J xxmarie111 said:Thanks for replying, I noticed there were plenty of viewings but only one answer. Does this mean I'm not the only one confused by this. The way you described is exactly what I do whether I use silk or fabric, this is called fibreglass nails isn't it?
So what are silk wraps are they done only on natural nails?
I must seem thick but it's only because I had a really bad teacher at college, more interested in painting her nails than teaching us.
I've done loads of sets of what I know as fibreglass by applying tip, 2 coats of brush on resin, layer of silk, another 2 coats of resin, activator. I've been very sucessful with these and even if not infilled they will stay on for at least 3 weeks before starting to come off, lift etc. I'm obviously doing them right. It's so annoying not being taught correctly.
I've only done 1 set of acrylics because I'm so unconfident in doing them so I'm planning to go on a ezflow course as I've heard these are good.
