Full Answer

Silk wrap nails can also be used to strengthen and lengthen the natural nail without leaving it vulnerable to damage. This is because silk wrap nails are porous and allow the natural nail the ability to breathe. Silk wrap nails can be applied at home or by a local salon if desired.

Silk wrap nails may not be a good alternative to acrylic nails if a person does a lot of work with their hands because they break a lot more easily.
