They do the same thing, they’re probably a little bit better for the nail as they’re made from natural substances, and I would expect them to be just a tad tougher too. If you have a choice, I will go for artificial nails from hemp because they’re only good (if not better) for your nails, and they’re good for the planet too! 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp acevedobenitez 0 Questions 182 Answers 0 Best Answers 371 Points View Profile acevedobenitez 2020-07-26T22:19:48-04:00Added an answer on July 26, 2020 at 10:19 pm Anything you use in plastic form, you can use hemp as a substitute. Acrylic is microplastics, and you are told not to chew on your nails. The smell of the wet acrylic and acetone is not pleasant. If you are like me and have grown up getting nails put on, you are used to the smell. But I do notice it once I take a break from getting nails every month. With help nails, you are getting a stronger product without the toxic side effects of traditional acrylic nails. You are also doing your part in lessening the plastic waste of the environment. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp MarcLouis 0 Questions 187 Answers 0 Best Answers 372 Points View Profile MarcLouis 2020-07-26T22:19:11-04:00Added an answer on July 26, 2020 at 10:19 pm Hemp nails are different from other types of nails because they are non-toxic and biodegradable. Hemp has anti-inflammatory properties that will bring moisture back to your nails. It is also known to contain Omega 3, which is extremely beneficial to your nails. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Hempmaster3000 0 Questions 214 Answers 0 Best Answers 462 Points View Profile Hempmaster3000 2020-07-15T11:00:14-04:00Added an answer on July 15, 2020 at 11:00 am They are the same thing basically. Hemp would probably be a little light if noticeable. The biggest difference is probably, though, since they are made out of hemp is that they are made of natural fibers and biodegradable. I can’t tell you how many times I have seen those fake nails in the street or in a public bathroom and think that it will never degrade because it is made of plastic! 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Moogdummy 0 Questions 246 Answers 0 Best Answers 521 Points View Profile Moogdummy 2020-07-14T09:32:32-04:00Added an answer on July 14, 2020 at 9:32 am The binding agent that is commonly used is called stearic acid, which bonds water with oils and preserves the paint. The biggest difference is really just oil. In normal acrylic nails, a lot of synthetic substances are used. With hemp nails, you know you’re getting minimal ingredients, and natural ingredients. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Abe Melbourne, Australia 2 Questions 238 Answers 0 Best Answers 564 Points View Profile Abigail 2020-07-14T09:32:00-04:00Added an answer on July 14, 2020 at 9:32 am It is the same, but there is this housewarming news for nail-beauty lovers using high-quality materials on their nails!

It is eco-friendly and reusable. It has more advantages to use than the usual artificial nails. Since hemp plants are proven for its beneficial and non-harming components to the body, they can’t cause damage, unlike other types that could cause fungi and bacteria in natural nails. Another risk is different types of artificial nails could cause infection. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp amanda.tolar Waynesburg, United States (US) 0 Questions 313 Answers 0 Best Answers 662 Points View Profile amanda.tolar 2020-07-10T18:17:04-04:00Added an answer on July 10, 2020 at 6:17 pm So, some years ago, I had what was called an “organic powder” manicure at a local nail salon… I’m not 100%, but I’m pretty sure they used a hemp-based powder… And let me tell you. Best. Mani. Ever. Not only did these nails look fabulous, but they were also stronger than other manicures, and lasted so much longer! Not only that, but they were thin enough to feel like natural nails, which NEVER happens with any kind of artificial. Picture for reference lol (ignore the drawing I’m holding, but it’s the only close-up of a nail from that mani that I could find easily). When I removed them, there was virtually NO damage to my nail beds, either. So like I said, I’m not totally sure this was hemp, but a few years ago someone told me that’s what this place was using, and I know it was “organic,” so it makes sense. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp CrayM 0 Questions 311 Answers 0 Best Answers 656 Points View Profile CrayM 2020-07-14T09:30:22-04:00Added an answer on July 14, 2020 at 9:30 am Just like any acrylic nail is made, as mentioned above, mixing hemp powder with some kind of polymer. Since you are not using as many harsh chemicals, they are “healthier” for your nails and will not cause as much damage to your natural nail, compared to acrylic nails. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Melody 0 Questions 189 Answers 0 Best Answers 389 Points View Profile Melody 2020-07-10T06:04:17-04:00Added an answer on July 10, 2020 at 6:04 am I’ve never heard that they actually make fake nails out of hemp, but there sure are lots of 420 designs to decorate your nails with. Somebody let me know if they make fake nails from hemp fibers. I might be willing to put those on my fingers, since they should be much healthier than the acrylic alternatives. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp wavess 0 Questions 234 Answers 0 Best Answers 499 Points View Profile wavess 2020-07-09T11:15:00-04:00Added an answer on July 9, 2020 at 11:15 am Hemp artificial nails are made in much the same way as acrylic nails; you mix a powder with a binding agent and apply to natural nails or over plastic extensions. However, proponents of hemp artificial nails claim that the mixture harms your nails, nail beds, and skin less than the harsh chemicals used to form acrylic or other kinds of artificial nails. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login to add an answer.
