How To Construct Acrylic Nails

Acrylic nails are made by combining two products: the acrylic liquid and powder. The two substances form a soft paste that becomes easily moldable once layered on the nail. After application, the resulting product hardens and forms a very resistant artificial nail. The acrylic paste can be used both for the construction of fake nails and for natural nails. Also, this product can be used to repair nails that are weak, broken or chipped from tearing with one’s teeth. The process of applying acrylic nails is relatively simple, the hard part being creating a painted design on them.

If you are set on constructing your own nails by means of acrylics, we will show you the step-by-step process of constructing a nail from this material. You’ll notice that experience will make its mark; if you lack it, you’ll have to gain it. Patience is another roadblock you’ll bump into. However, if you are strongly motivated, it will all become very simple and pleasant. Let’s get started.

The first step is removing all polish from the nails. Begin with the pinky finger and finish with the thumb. We will first deal with our left hand. Continue by pushing back cuticles with an orange wood stick. Cutting cuticles is forbidden. Remove shine from the nails with a file or buffer. Clear away any dust. Wipe the surface with an antiseptic using the same orange wood stick wrapped in medicinal cotton.

Continue by positioning the acrylic shape. Make sure the open tip is above the shape. Place the shape around the finger by pressing lightly. Apply a base point on the nail with the orange stick, which prepares the surface for setting the acrylic material. Don’t overdo it on quantity. Wait until the base is dry and has a white color.

Prepare the acrylic liquid and powder by pouring them into separate bowls. Insert the brush into the acrylic liquid and remove the excess after taking it out. In order to make medium spheres of acrylic paste, insert the same brush into the acrylic powder and spin it lightly. Place the sphere of resulting material on the nail shape precisely on the spot where the tip of the nail overlays the shape. Begin modeling the open tip by pressing lightly. Be careful, acrylics cannot be painted on, which is why we use the pressing technique to achieve a nail with a look as natural as possible.

Always maintain parallel lines and mold the acrylic along the open tip line. Pick up a similar amount of acrylic past on the brush and set it in the center of the nail, exactly by the open tip line and mold it as well. Make sure at all times that the material is very thin around the tips. Repeat the procedure for all other nails.

The next step involves removing the shapes. Don’t simply pull on them abruptly. The nails must be very well dried. Slowly loosen the grasp of the shape and remove them by employing gentle gliding movements. We will know the nails have properly dried if there’s a short pop on detachment.

Move onto leveling the resulting manicure. Mold the open tip with a semi-abrasive file. Try to spot any imperfections. Give more attention to the cuticle area, to the open tip and lateral sides, which must be as thin as possible in order to get the much desired natural look. It is recommended that you use a buffer, a very useful tool for smoothing out the entire surface of the nail.

In the end, apply special cuticle oil around the entire nail. For this operation, you should use the orange wood stick wrapped in medicinal cotton. Apply hand cream and then clean the nail of any impurities. Your designer nails are now prepared for nail art; however, it you want no such thing, begin by applying a clear polish for protection and finish with your favorite polish. Congratulations, you have succeeded in creating your first acrylic fake nails manicure.
