I've grown my nails out where they look really good and I'd like to keep them looking good as a long as possible, especially since I tend to be tough on my hands sometimes.. Has anyone ever had gel overlays done on their natural nails, no tips involved, just overlay?? I've also heard that you can do silk wrap overlays too? WHich is better? I've never had anything like this done before, so I have no idea what to expect.... -Is this harmful to your natural nails or will it help strengthen them? -How long does it last? -Is it possible to do a permanent french manicure as the gel/silk overlay? -Can anyone recommend a great nail salon in NYC that offers this service? Thanks to anyone who can help out!!
