Definition of Delamination

  1. The peeling apart of two previously adhered or layered surfaces. Natural nails can de-laminate due to a lack of natural oil and moisture in the nail plate layers; this is most often referred to as peeling nails. In regards to acrylic nails or other nail enhancement systems, it describes lifting of the enhancement (acrylic) from the natural nail.
