At the basis material thinner, and is closer to edge of plate more dense. Before use of tips the nails are carefully processed, the upper layer of nail plate is cut by means of special nail file. The synthetic template is pasted to the middle of nail, and then becomes covered by special covering – gel, acrylic or other strengthening substances. Glue is applied only on contact zone which can be measured by eye or by means of gleam. This area on plate thinner. Some types of tips are pasted to the basis of nail and do not contain contact zone. The main distinctive feature of modern tips is elasticity. Initially false nails did of plastic and they were quite thick. Tipsa from ABS materials practically do not differ from natural nails. They can be cut off and sawn off if necessary. In attempt to correct plastic nails the artificial plate most often breaks or bursts.
