Short Glitter Nude Acrylic Nails – I wanted to take a step back from all of the crazy designs and 3D acrylic art. For this design, I wanted something short, something practical, and something where I could go to work and not be the main topic of discussion at the water cooler. Don’t get me wrong I love showing off my artistic creations on my nails, but sometimes I just need a break. This design really showcase the beauty of a simple set. Acrylic application and shaping has to be spot on because there isn’t any polish, rhinestones, 3D acrylic, or designs to hide behind.
The acrylic powder I used for this nail design is from Exclusive Nail Couture and it is called Make-up Pink. It is a beautiful cover pink acrylic base with fine, iridescent glitter. The Make-up Pink acrylic powders gives the right amount of glamour without being too over the top. This acrylic powder is so easy to work with. It has a great consistency. It’s medium setting time gives you the perfect control and time to place it into shape without having to work too fast.
For this Short Glitter Nude Acrylic Nails design, I applied this Exclusive Nail Couture Make-up Pink acrylic over my natural nails. This technique is called an acrylic overlay. An acrylic overlay is where no nail tips are used. I did use sculpting nail forms, not for extending the length of the nails, but for stabilility when laying the acrylic.
After applying the Make-up Pink acrylic and shaping the nails, I applied my all time favorite top coat, Poochiez Nails Super Shine gel top coat.
