Acrylic Nails

Like if this Guide is helpful

There are many things that can affect the way they look when you are finished.

Be careful as some brands of Acrylic Powders do not mix well with some Liquid Acrylics (Monomers) they can bubbles or crumble as they dry. Some will set very quick and some will struggle to set at all

Brush cleaner/s are important. If your brush is clean the majority of the time then it is easier to handle wet acrylic, much easier then if their is a lump or old residues in the brush you are using.

Priming the nail is always important and always try and find one that is compatible with your own nails. Ask around with Nail Technicians they are always/ or should be well versed in what does and doesn't work well.

Asking a question means you get an answer if you think it's incorrect then ask another person. The more thorough you make your question the better the answer.

Many brands are available and price doesn't always buy the best as it is possible to get nicely priced items and great value. Wholesale does work well as long as you are able to use all you buy :) There are products that can't be shipped between countries wether it be from laws or from dangerous shipping regulations.

Nail tips...

There are so many, well basically there are a few ways to find the best.

Ask how flexible the tip is...

Is the tip suitable for what you need...

Some tips with the glitter on top of the tip will not take acrylic very well... ask the seller!

Rainbow tips do not always appear rainbow'ish after acrylic is applied, or with some you will need a clear top coat after buffing to bring out the rainbow shine...

Also consider the sizing of the tips as sizes 1-10 may be for small fingers... and vicer-versa...

If you are unsatisfied speak up and make sure you are well understood.

Acrylic nails are a great hobby and also a great way to spend time with friends and make new friends :)

Good luck and enjoy the adventure to show your expression through your nails!
