Finger prosthetics should look realistic. That realism is enhanced further when a custom acrylic nail is added. Made from solid acrylic shaped to mimic a natural fingernail, it allows the wearer to use nail polish and file the nail to get the perfect shape. Non – acetone nail polish remover should always be used to prevent damage or weakening of the fingernail.
Acrylic fingernails are quite durable. Although they may split or come off under certain circumstances the nail can usually be replaced or repaired. To add to the lifelike appearance, we may even add a little “dirt” under the fingernail especially if the wearer has an occupation which makes it difficult for them to get their nails clean. A shiny new fingernail would look odd and would not blend in with the wearer’s hand.
