If you don't want your nails to be damaged and brittle from going to the salon too often, what can you do?
The answer is quite obvious: you might want to try overlay nails.
An excellent alternative to the frequently harsher application of press-ons or
acrylics is an acrylic, gel, or dip overlay, which covers your natural nails while still allowing them to breathe.
You may keep your natural nail length while your gel overlays heal,
as they don't include extensions and typically last around three weeks.
Gel-X nails look similar to overlays, but that's not the case.
