What are Sculptured Nails?

Do you know what Sculptured Nails Are?


If you’ve been to a nail salon you’ve probably heard about the term ‘Sculptured Nails’ or something similar like:

  • Nail Tips
  • New Nails
  • French Nails
  • Acrylic Nails
  • Gel Nails
  • Solar Nails
  • Shellac Nails
  • Nail Forms
  • Powder Gel
  • Colour Powder Tips
  • Or Deluxe Manicure

So much nail lingo but what do they all mean? I’m so confused!

I’m going to eventually explain them all to you in my future blog posts but for today I would like to deal with ONE of these words, that is the word SCULPTURED NAILS.

Ladies (and men who treat themselves royally!) the sculptured nail is just that! SCULPTURED!

Defined by Dictionary.com as:


If we were going back to the roots of doing nails,  sculpture is just what the word means:  We are making  a nail by shaping a nail on to your nail bed.   We can also use a form to extend the nail tip surface if needed,  to form a nail length that you did not have originally. We sculpture a nail for you to look like a real nail that ALSO looks natural !!!

 So that is how it started!

All we wanted to do was to make a artificial nail that looked natural, hence the term sculptured nail.

In future blog posts I’ll talk about the other nail terminology you may have heard about. Soon you’ll be an expert when it comes to talking about the next trend in nails.

Have you had your nails ‘sculptured’ lately and if so, how did you like them?
