Natural Looking Acrylic Nails Pink Nude Nails. I have always done long acrylic nails with crazy designs; from extra bling to in your face 3D acrylic. Don’t get me wrong, I love my long nails but sometimes you get have to change things up a bit. I know many people can’t wear those kind of nails on the everyday basis due to work. So I would like to share this work friendly natural looking acrylic nail design.
This acrylic set is what you would call an acrylic overlay. I didn’t use any tips or nail forms. I started this set with bare nails. I prepped my nails using my e-file and the cuticle clean bit from Todac USA. I love this nail drill bit. It is a must for your nails. I love how quick and easy it get rid of the dead skin around the cuticle area. I use to have an issue with my acrylic nail enhancements lifting and could never figure out why. I thought I was doing everything right when it came to acrylic nail prep. However, I noticed that the dead skin around the cuticle area and on the nail plate is hard to see without “agitating” it first by using a nail file or cuticle pusher.
After prepping the nail with the cuticle clean bit, I take my hand file on the 180 grit side lightly buff the surface of each nail to remove any shine. This step is important because it lightly etches the surface of the nails which give the acrylic better adhesion. Next I take a makeup sponge soaked in acetone and wipe each nail. I like to use acetone as my dehydrator. The acetone removes any oils from the nail and technically dries it out. Once again, this step is essential for maximum acrylic adhesion. Then I applied the No Lift Nails Primer.
I then applied the cover nude acrylic. This acrylic is a great cover pink color. I purchased this from @nunis_nails from Instagram over a year ago. Unfortunately, he doesn’t sell it any more. I am on the look out for a great cover pink acrylic so feel free to leave your suggestions below. I used my petite macaroon #10 kolinsky acrylic brush from Exclusive Nail Couture to apply the acrylic. This is one of my favorite brushes because it gives me great control when apply acrylic.
After all the acrylic is placed and set I shaped the nails using my e-file and my large cone it from Todac USA. This bit is perfect for shaping the nail and making the cuticle area flush all in one step. I did my final shaping with my hand file.
Once the nails are all shaped, I applied my favorite gel top coat, the Poochiez Nailz Super Shine Gel top coat. Before I cured, I applied gold nail stubs from Todac USA.
Finally I cured the nails in my Christrio LED nail lamp for 60 seconds. And this is the finished look! A nice, classy nail design that is perfect for work. It still shows that some glam without being over the top. What do you all think about this nail design? Would this be a nail design that you would rock to the office?
