Tip-technique means when we stick plastic nails of different sizes and with the same curve and form as of the own nail onto the natural nail. Tips are slightly supported by themselves after being applied so it is always necessary to coat them with gel or acryl. The tip is actually a bearing surface of these coatings (just as the stencil mentioned later, however, the tip is left within the artificial nail). It is important to know that the material of the tip is much weaker that the base material of artifical nails, the support is provided by the coating, that is why it is suggested to make the tip thinner.
Tip glues, just as superglues, contain cyanide acrylate, however, to a much lesser extent. They are usually available in 2,3,5, and 6 g of packaging (in larger packaging they would dry up after some time). Their jelly types do not drip, fill up fissures, however, they get hard slower. It is suggested to use jelly glues for ridged nails.
