Reusable Fake Nails

Team: Artificial Nails Team

Program: Center for Leadership Education, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

Nails play an important part in one’s look and lifestyle. One popular option of styling nails is through the use of acrylic fake nails. These acrylic nails are very expensive and difficult to remove. Other types of artificial nails are single-use and fall off too easily. Our product aims to solve all of these problems by introducing a new type of patent-pending adhesion technology that makes our product easier to apply, easier to remove, and increases reusability.
