Express Nails are a full nail tip (like those you find in your local supermarket) applied with acrylic, so instead of glue, acrylic is used to adhere the nail to the nail bed.
Express Nails come in all shapes and sizes, and can be bought in these shapes, including, coffin, round, stiletto, square, long and short.
Express Nails last up to three weeks with correct preparation and application takes around 20 minutes.
