      I've never heard of fiberglass nails - sounds interesting but since the gel is working for me, I'm going to stick with it.
      I paid $70 to hav the gel put on my nails originally & I pay $40 to have them refilled every 3 weeks. My place uses the dremel (electric drill thingy) in combination with the regular files. I've never gone to a place that doesn't. I get tons of compliments on my nails too - I think the permanent french look is just very simple - I get actual polish maybe 2x/year - i hate waiting for it to dry!

          I always get solar nails...Anyone know the difference b/w gel and solar? I have seen gel nails on the "menu" at the salon, but I don't know the difference. I have been really happy with solar, except for this one time when I when I was trying a new salon and my nails ended up with a yellow tint after about a week. When I went back to my regular salon, they said the other people had used cheap powder.

            I have had fake mails for about 2 years.....I just took mine off for a while before I get married just to give my nails a break. I look forward to getting them done again for the wedding.

            I love them I can go for abour 3 weeks before I have a fill. Good luck

              Acrylic, no matter how cheap or expensive, turns yellow after being in the sun. A lot of cheap nail salons will put gel over them to prevent it from happening. and pass it off as gel nails.

              My understanding of Solar nails is that it's an acrylic brand by Creative Nail Design System.

              Gel nails are exactly that - gel. When they put it on, it's a gel that is set with UV lamps. This is a guy doing true gel nails: YouTube - gel french nails
