Fibreglass Nails & Silk Wraps

Finding Fiberglass Nails and Silk Wraps on eBay

Nail salons can be expensive. If you love having freshly-done nails but would rather not take the time to go to a salon, the good news is that you can find both fiberglass strands for nails and fiberglass nail wraps on eBay. Here's how to make sure you get the right one for you:

Should you buy a fiberglass nails kit or buy components individually?

As you search for fiberglass nail supplies on eBay, you may notice that you have the option to purchase a kit that includes both the strands for extension and the fiberglass wrap to cover it. There is no wrong way to go about purchasing fiberglass nails, but there are advantages to both kits and individual pieces:

  • Do you already have a preferred brand of extensions or wraps? If you have experience in fiberglass nail art and already know what brands you like, it may be a good idea to search eBay for deals on these brands rather than looking for an all-inclusive kit.
  • Are you new to doing nails? If you are new to doing your own nails or if you just want to try it out, a kit might be a good idea. A kit simplifies the ordering process and will let you easily see if doing your own nails is for you.
Deciding whether fiberglass nails or silk wraps are for you

The two main types of nail enhancement kits offered on eBay are fiberglass nails and silk wraps. Where fiberglass nails consist of a set of thin fibers attached to your nail that are then glazed and covered with a polish of your choice, silk nail wraps involve applying a wrap to your nails, much like a sticker. Wraps tend to be more conducive to nail growth, so if you're looking to grow out your nails, this might be a good choice. Fiberglass nails tend to take a bit more time to put on, but they often look more natural.

Other considerations

Before you make your final selection on which fiberglass wrap you'd like, here are some other things to think about:

  • How many nails do you want to do with one purchase? Fiberglass extensions and silk wraps are all sold in various quantities, from a seemingly endless roll of wrap to just enough to do your nails a few times. Before you order, make sure you have the right quantity.
  • Do you have everything you need? Especially if you're new to fiber nails, be sure you have everything. For example, some listings are only for fiberglass nail wraps, the fibers themselves, or only for glaze. Each option is perfect for someone, but the important thing to remember is to make sure it's perfect for you.
