Fake Toenails That Look Real!

Fake toenails

Fake toenails are now a reality!

If you play sports and damaged a nail, or if time has caused your nails to crumble- we can help with KeryFlex !

New nails are only 20 minutes away. These are not Acrylic toenails. Acrylic is porous and causes nails to let water soak in and actually rots them over time, making the problem worse. Our nails are made of a nonporous waterproof resin. This protects the nail growing underneath. As it grows out I recommend a topical antifungal be applied at the base, leaving a new nail growing in fungus free.

The resin nails grow out with your nail and can be “filled” similar to acrylics evey 3 months. If your toenails have turned brown, black or yellow, these can cover them in a nice smooth surface. They are paintable with regular nail polish, which can be removed using acetone nail polish. It will not harm your new nail!


Keryflex Toenail Picture

Nail Restoration is a painless, in-office application that restores the appearance of an individual’s natural nails. This system allows for a certified provider to remodel an individual’s damaged nails affected by fungus, defects and trauma. The composite resin creates a flexible, but durable, non-porous nail that allows the remaining natural nail to grow.

  • Acrylic nails are rigid,  KeryFlex restored are flexible nails allowed to bend with your foot and toes natural movement
  • KeryFlex nails are compatible with human tissue so it does not irritate nor will it cause further damage to your skin or nail bed
  • Your remaining nail can then grow out naturally
  • It is non-porous, therefore will not allow moisture to penetrate and cause damage and fungus to grow between the natural and prosthetic nail

How long do fake toenails typically last before needing replacement?

The lifespan of fake toenails can vary based on factors such as the type of adhesive used, daily activities, and the quality of the fake toenails. Generally, they may last anywhere from one to three weeks. However, individual experiences can differ, and some people may find that fake toenails need replacement sooner, especially if they are exposed to activities that can cause more wear and tear. It’s essential to follow proper application and maintenance instructions to maximize the longevity of fake toenails and prevent premature damage or detachment.

Do fake toenails affect the growth or health of natural toenails?

The impact of fake toenails on the growth and health of natural toenails can vary from person to person. When applied and removed properly, fake toenails generally shouldn’t have a significant impact on the growth or health of natural toenails. However, improper application or removal can potentially cause damage, such as weakening or thinning of the natural nail.

It’s crucial to follow recommended guidelines for applying, wearing, and removing fake toenails to minimize the risk of adverse effects. Additionally, allowing periods of time without fake toenails can give natural nails a chance to breathe and recover. If individuals have concerns about their toenail health, they should consult with a healthcare professional or a licensed nail technician.

Do fake toenails damage natural toenails over time?

If applied and removed correctly, fake toenails typically shouldn’t cause significant damage to natural toenails over time. However, improper application, prolonged use without breaks, or aggressive removal methods can potentially lead to issues such as weakening, thinning, or damage to the natural nail.

To minimize the risk of damage, it’s important to follow proper procedures for applying and removing fake toenails. This includes using appropriate adhesives, avoiding excessive force during removal, and allowing periods of time without fake toenails to let the natural nails recover.
