Natural Acrylic Nails – I kept my previous nail design on longer than I would have liked. I typically change my nails every 2 weeks. However, due to me schedule, I just wasn’t able to get to it. Well once I did have the time to finally sit down and pamper myself, I soaked off my previous set of nails and noticed how long my natural nails had grown. I really didn’t want to cut them, so I chose to do an acrylic overlay on my natural nails.
Products used to create this nail design:
- No-Lift Nails Primer
- No-Lift Nails Acrylic Liquid
- Nail Forms
- Poochiez 100% Kolinsky Acrylic Brush #12
- Beauty Secrets Clear Acrylic Powder
- Electric Nail Drill
- 100/180 Grit Nail File
- Orange Nail Buffer Block
- A/B Czech Crystals
- Pink Gellac Ultra Shine Gel Top Coat
- Christrio LED Nail Lamp
I prepped my nails for the acrylic application by using the 100 grit side of my nail file to lightly take the shine off of my natural nails. Then I applied No-Lift Nails Primer to each nail. I then applied a second coat of the primer right before I applied the acrylic. The acrylic I used for this natural acrylic nails design in Beauty Secrets Clear Acrylic powder. I used a nail form for my middle finger nail because that nail was chipped. I made sure to apply a thin layer of acrylic to each nail as I didn’t want these nails to be too thick and chunky.
After the acrylic was applied, I filed, shaped, and buffed my nails. Using the Beauty Secrets Clear Acrylic was perfect for showing my natural nail’s beauty. I was able to get a better view of it once the filing and shaping was complete. I then applied the Pink Gellac Ultra Shine Gel Top Coat to each nail and cured for 90 seconds in my Christrio LED nail lamp. This nail design was fairly simple so I just wanted to add a little something to it with a few crystals.
I’m so in love with this Natural Acrylic Nails design. It makes me want to grow out my natural nails even longer. Let me know what you think, Share your thoughts below!
