Coffin nails have become one of my favorite shapes. You all know how I love nude nails too. A beautiful nude color just gives a nice, clean look. Well, if you are a follower of this blog, you know that I had always purchased my pink nude acrylics from Nuni Torres from Instagram. Don’t get me wrong, I love his product, however I hate that it’s not readily available. He only sales them like twice a year. Also, once I do place an order, it always takes over a month to receive it. So, I decided to create my own color.
This is my custom blended pink nude acrylic. I took everything that I love from my favorite acrylics powders and bottled it up lol. The color is a perfect nude with a hint of pink. It is also opaque, which makes it the perfect cover pink. Click here to purchase! Free shipping available.
There is nothing like a fresh set of nails. I soaked off my previous set and prepped my natural nails. I used natural colored nail tips and a basic quick dry nail glue to adhere them.
After I applied the tips, I trimmed them with a nail clipper and lightly shaped them. I was going for coffin nails, so I filed the sides inward slightly.
This set is ultra simple. I used the LongHairPrettyNails Pink Nude Acrylic Powder and applied it to the entire nail. Once the application of the acrylic was complete, I filed, shaped, and buffed. Lastly, I applied two coats of Seche Vite topcoat.
I love the color of this acrylic! It is so perfect on it’s own. Tell me what you all think!
Coffin Nails – LongHairPrettyNails Pink Nude Acrylic Powder
This nail design is a bit different from what I have been doing lately. I have really fallen in love with the nude nail look, and been pretty much sticking to that. But this time around, I wanted to do something more bright and in your face! Of course I had to incorporate my favorite elements, pink nude and acrylic 3D flowers. This is also a nail collab with several fellow nail enthusiast. Check out links to everyone’s look here.
The color I used for this design is this bright, neon pink nail polish from Ruby Kisses. It’s called “Sweet Thing”.
I used a dotting tool to create both polka dot nails.
I used regular scotch tape to create the half painted nail. The tape was used to give a very crisp line.
These are the colored acrylic powders that I used to create the 3D flowers. I purchased these from Born Pretty Store a few years ago. I bought these when I first started to get into 3D acrylic art. As you can see, it’s time for a new set lol.
I used my #6 Kolinsky brush to create the 3D flowers. I used a small bead of the Beuauty Secrets clear acrylic powder to adhere A/B crystals in the center of each flower.
I really love this fun, bright, nail design. Surprising, I have received a lot of compliments as well. I know bright nails aren’t for everyone, but those who have seen them love it. This design is just so perfect for summer!
Bright Pink Neon Nails w/ 3D Acrylic Flowers- LongHairPrettyNails
This design was very quick for me do achieve. This is a fill-in of my previous nail design Pink Nude Acrylic Nails w/ Glitter and 3D Flowers. Last time, I did one glitter nail on each hand. But this time around, I filled-in each nail with my pink nude acrylic that I purchased from Nuni Torres of Instagram. So, the glitter nails have this gradient, ombre thing going on!
Here I have prepped my nails and applied my No-lift nails primer. As always, I apply this to each nail and left it dry. Then I re-apply a second coat right before I began laying my acrylic.
I used the Tammy Taylor P3 acrylic powder to make the 3D flowers. If you follow this blog then you would know that I was in love with Tammy Taylor acrylics. I really do love the color, I just had to switch brands of acrylic when doing my full sets. The reason being is that the Tammy Taylor powder sets extremely fast. Leaving my no time to shape my nails the may I life them. But a fast setting powder is perfect for 3D art!
Next I used these gorgeous Princess crown nail charms that I got from Born Pretty Store. (Use coupon code CVEK31 for 10% off!) I used a medium sized bead of acrylic to attached them to both glitter nails. Next I did a little free hand nail art with my LA colors nail paint in color white, then added a few a/b crystals for extra shine.
I put two coats of my Seche Vite topcoat on each nail expect of the nails with the 3D flowers. I wanted that nail to have that extra matte look.

Pink Nude Matte 3D flowers and Bling Acrylic Nails
This Pink Nude Nails with Glitter and 3D flower design sort of just happened. I was going to do just a basic fill-in, but I received another package from Born Pretty Store which included some very pretty items. All the items were nice, but the glitters really stood out to me. So I just had to include them in my next design. Check out Born Pretty Store and use coupon code CVEK31 for 10% off your order.
I prepped my nails by pushing back the cuticles and removing any dead skin. The I removed any lifting acrylic. Once that was done, I filled the ring finger nail on my left hand and the index finger nail on my right hand very low using my electric drill in preparation for the glitter acrylic. I filled in the nails using my all time favorite acrylic, Intense Pink, from @nunis_nails. Unfortunately, I’m going to have to find another cover pink once I run out because he only plans to sell them locally from now on. That’s a whole other issue, but if anyone knows of a great cover pink, let me know!I wanted to use some of the gorgeous glitter pots that I got from Born Pretty Store. I ended up using these two; a white iridescent and a silver glitter. I mixed the two in each of my glitter nails. To apply the glitter, I picked up a bead of clear acrylic and just dipped in into the glitter pot. I continued to do this until I got the desired amount of coverage of glitter. Then I applied a final layer of clear acrylic to encapsulate it and make it easier to file without losing any of the glitter.After that, I filled, buffed, and shaped the nails. Then I created the 3D flowers and added some rhinestones.Lastly, I topped off this design with 2 coats of Seche Vite Top Coat.
I love this design because it incorporates my favorites design elements, pink nude acrylic, glitter, and of course, 3D acrylic art. Do you like this design? Tell me your thoughts below!
It didn’t take long to get back to my pink nude nails! This time I wanted to add a little embellishments to them. I recently purchased these gold nail charms from ebay and I was really excited to try them out. I think they add the perfect touch to the nails.
I prepped my nails by shaping the nail tips and taking the shine off my natural nails and the nail tips.
I applied a small amount of No-Lift Nails Primer to my natural nail only. I put this on each nail, then one last coat right before I began placing my acrylic. The acrylic powder I used for this design is called Intense Pink and I purchased this from nunis_nails. I truly love the color of this cover pink acrylic. It is so perfect lol. I am currently on the hunt for something similar to this because unfortunately Nuni only sales these sporadically.
Once the acrylic is applied I shaped and buffed. I then applied a coat of my red tinted nail polishNext I adhered these beautiful Gold Nail Charms. I used a small bead of clear acrylic to attach it to my nails.
Lastly I put a top coat on all of my nails…and this is the finished look! I really love how these turned out. I know I say that a lot :). I literally have been drooling over these pictures of the finished look lol. Tell me what you guys think?
I have been asked quite a bit about how I remove my acrylic nails without damaging my natural nail. My reply is always simple. %100 Acetone!
It really makes me cringe when I hear about people biting or ripping their acrylic nails off. I know you may want to get them off in a hurry but this is a big no no! When you pull and rip at the acrylic from your natural nail, you are actually ripping off layers of your natural nail in the process making them soft and extremely brittle.
When it’s time to remove my acrylic nails, I use %100 Acetone nail polish remover. The label has to say “%100 Acetone” because anything less will not be enough to dissolve the acrylic. For more information about Acetone click here.
I use a non plastic bowl to soak my nails in. Acetone dissolves plastic so your bowl can’t be plastic. This bowl is strictly used for this purpose. Please do not use bowls that you eat from!
Once I pour a good amount into the bowl to cover my nails, I simply place my hands in the bowl and soak.
I cover the bowl with an old towel as my hands soak. I do this to keep the warmth inside the bowl to speed up the process. This is how my nails look after 30 minutes.
I typically use a wooden orange stick to scrape off the softened acrylic. However, I didn’t have a wooden orange stick at the time so I use a metal hair clip.
I let my nails soak for another 15-20 minutes until the remaining acrylic is dissolve. And this is the end result.
And that is how you safely remove acrylic nails. No pulling, yanking, or drilling. Your nails will very much appreciate it lol!
