WHAT IS AN ACRYLIC NAILS TREATMENT? Acrylic nails are a common enhancement. One benefit of acrylic nails is that they’re quite strong, they won’t chip and you can choose them in a variety of colours and styles. Acrylic nails are one of the best enhancements for your nails if you’re quite hard on them. Acrylic nails enhancements are made by gluing a tip onto your natural nails, the acrylic powder is mixed with a liquid to create an overlay that’s placed on top of natural nails. They can be worn long or short and can also be filed into square, round, coffin, almond shapes to name a few.
