Apply Acrylic Nails At Home . ok so the first thing that you want to do is sanitize your hands and nails just ensure that you're not gonna be spreading bacteria to your products and tools next thing you want to do is take your cuticle softener and begin pushing back your cuticles with the cuticle pusher and you just want to make sure you're doing this really gently but you also want to make sure they're pushed back and mouth because acrylic isn't designed to stick to skin next thing is really simple you just want to go ahead and trim all of your nails down to a comfortable length and then taking a file just go ahead and file and even out all the free edges to all your natural nails yeah next step is just filing off the natural shine to your mail and you just want to use eight light buffer block with this and make sure you're being careful because this is your natural male you want to focus more on the cuticle area so now it's time to apply the tips to your nails and the correct way to do this is to not take it and put it flat down on top of your nail you want to make sure you're going corner to corner because sometimes if you put it just straight down it can be a little bit deceiving and look like it fits.
And it actually doesn't and then if you find one side or the other is a little bit too long you can definitely take your file and just file the sides really lightly just to get a perfect fit so you want to bond the tip to your natural nail and the way you want to do this is to not apply too much glue because it won't stick properly and it will look really uneven and it will pour out the sides so you just want to apply a really thin even layer concentrating more on the corners and then how I like to do it as i like to apply in the center and hold it for about 15 to 25 seconds and then once I've held it in the center I pinch the sides for another 10 to 15 seconds just to make sure everything dried properly and it's all even throughout yeah and now you just want to go ahead and trim them to a length that you're comfortable with try and make them so they're not too too long and try and cut them as even as possible I kind of messed up this part because I was trying to film and I was cutting it out a weird angle but try not to make them too long because you don't want to do a whole bunch of unnecessary filing and now take your file again you just want to file off the tips and the sides just to make sure that they're not sharp and they're completely even and to a size that you're comfortable with and then just quickly double check on both hands but they're even so now you would go wash your hands with soap and water and then you're gonna go and apply a dehydrated this is just to change the base of your nails about the acrylic bonds to your nails easier and then after you apply the dehydrate you want to apply another product quite similar and it's a primer and it's just going to again further make your acrylic bong better to your nail.
How To: Apply Acrylic Nails At Home
So now it's time to apply the acrylic to your nails and the first thing that you want to do is dip your brush fully in pull off a little bit of the excess draw three little lines in the acrylic powder just a creative bead and then you're going to apply the acrylic in three sections first you're going to start off with the tip and this is going to be the second biggest part portion of your mail and you just want more of it with the tip of your brush and padding it with the belly of the brush just to make sure that you're getting on the tip fully covered in acrylic and a quick tip you just want to make sure you're wiping off all the excess acrylic before you put it back into the acrylic liquid to see you don't get build-up inside your brush the second portion you want to make the thickest because this is the breaking point so just go ahead and do the same process i usually use two beads and then just kind of Pat it and then using small strokes you just want to wipe in between the first section and this section you're working on just so they blend nicely the third section is the cuticle portion and this you want to make sure is the thinnest you want to make sure you're not getting any on the skin because this will cause lifting and when you're finished you just want to make sure it goes on a slight slope from the cuticle being but lowest point the middle being the highest point on the tip being the second highest point taking your buffing block you just want to buff away any lumps or unevenness on the surface of the nail and now you just want to apply a top coat of your choice you can use a gel top coat if you have a light or you can use what i'm using which is just a powerful acrylic gel topcoat this just adds a bunch of shine and added strength to your nails once you apply thick layer that you want to give this a good 15 minutes to fully dry and set and to add some extra moisture back into your cuticles just take some cuticle oil and apply this to the cuticle area and rub it into the rest of the nail and to help keep your brush clean you just want to stand it straight up in a little bit of the acrylic liquid and you want to keep this in prayer about 10 to 15 minutes just so it soaks off all the excess acrylic
