The Way to Apply Acrylic Nails
If you have trouble growing your nails, or if you want a quick fix because you are going somewhere special, getting yourself a set of acrylic nails is the next best thing to natural, well-polished nails.
Acrylic nails are artificial nails which you put over your real nails. They last longer than ordinary nail polish set on real nails. Usually, nail polish begins to fade within a week’s time, but when you are using acrylic nails, you need to replace them after only a couple of weeks, so that’s about a week more.
Some acrylic nails come with designs already, so all you have to do is simply glue them on your real nails, polish them a bit, and you’re done. There are also acrylic nails that are plain or colorless, so you can paint some nail polish over them.
Putting on acrylic nails is fun and interesting. You do not have to go to a nail salon just to get a perfect set of acrylic nails because you can do this in your own home. First, prep your nails. Clean them well; remove any nail polish if there is any evidence of it left on the nails. Try to reduce as much cuticle as possible, and trim your nails, as well.
Now that’s done, put nail glue over your nails, and put the acrylic nails on. Trim your acrylic nails according to your desired length. Next, mix liquid acrylic with powdered acrylic and put the mixture over the nails. Then buff, and apply your preferred nail polish.
The process seems so simple, but it can take a lot of practice and patience before you can actually perfect it.
