          You need to use resin to make the fiberglass or silk durable. That glue that comes in that kit is meant for repairs not to actually build a nail. I literally just did a full set using the fiberglass wrap with resin and activator. Feels like acrylic and actually builds in layers to increase thickness and density.


            Ah Thank you. I think I asked about this a while ago.

              Wow , I love using silk wraps, I only apply once, it’s very strong, holds up great and looks very natural, great to fix broken nail tips.

                It's like Suzie is talking right to @Simplynailogical no more broken nails for Cristine. XD

                  Is it just me…or…the cuticle area of Suzie's blue nails look a little rough and wonky…Suzie, everything ok?


                    Couldnt you use a nail form so the ends dont flare up or would that glue the form to your nail?


                      Susie!! Thank you for this! I wore silk wraps on my naturally long nails for years before I got married. Since getting married and moving, I haven’t found anyone who does wraps! They complimented my hands so well and I LOVE how natural they look! Plus they never damaged my nails! I have naturally long nails now, so maybe I should wrap my nails at home to keep the length! They need to bring wrap nails back!!


                        I also think it would work great on fixing a tear in natural nails 🙂

                          Suzie you really shouldnt have done this video without having full knowledge/practiced beforehand. Brush on glue and brush on resin are not the same. Just 1 of many mistakes you made. You as a popular professional should know posting a video like this people will take your word as truth. You really have no idea what you are doing with these wraps. If anyone wants to actually learn a system for wraps look up backscratchers nail wraps or cuccio nail wraps.

                              Hey suzie, can you please do a video on builder gel overlays on natural nails?

                                I love silk wraps, had them for years!

                                  Maybe you should practice before recording


                                    Silk and fiberglass are both extremely porous, therefore you should avoid touching the area you’re going to place on the fingernail with your bare hands and keep your area dust free. We use to use a piece of plastic wrap to press the wrap in place with the resin and then spray cure it. If you do it correctly you will barely see the fibers ❤️

                                      LOVE YOUR VIDEOS ALWAYS 😘 Maybe instead of the wood pusher try a siliconeone instead its rubbery so will help get the curvy part of your nail all nicely. That's my opinion and suggestion it might help a little also idk never tried it but figured maybe you would see if its easier then the wooden stick 😘 xoxo can't wait for more

                                        I used to have fake nails on all thw time and sadly i became allergic to the nail glue after more than a year, making it a little difficult to get my nails done here in sweden cause almost everyone uses the plastic tips which is somewhat sad 😔

                                          I wish you could show how to use builder gel in a bottle by ORLY.

                                            Yay thank you!

                                              Brings me back like 20 years. My old roomie took manicurist classes, and taught me how to do this on top of tips. It was time consuming. This is nice to see that I was doing it right 😉 thanks

                                                Thank you very much! This is what I've been looking for! Something to keep my natural nails strong without adding thickness of gel, or acrylic! I knew I subbed for a reason! You're my new nail heroine!!!

                                                Dani Webb

                                                  I think for more strength you’re supposed to use ASP lightless gel which is usually what comes with the spray activator. It is amazing to fix a natural nail break. And you can build a nail with it too. It’s much thicker than the glue. Good video though thanks

                                                  Kitty Bucher

                                                    I'm not entirely confident in these particular strips, that without a large amount of them that you could build a decently strong nail, without adding acrylic or gel on top, or a tip underneath it…

                                                    Mariana C

                                                      I always wear my natural nails long, but two months ago I broke my nail from the middle finger. Since it was from my non dominant hand I fixed it with acrylic but I think this method would be very helpful if something like that happened on my dominant hand.

                                                        Could you do another video using all three products

                                                        Mal V

                                                          Could you use the stickers to shape the fiberglass like you do with acrylic? Or would it stick to it too much.

                                                                    I’m tired of acrylic! My nails are naturally strong and grow. I was thinking about using poly gel for my overlay but this seems easier. What’s the upkeep like?
