You don’t have to be an expert to do it yourself! Yes, most of the times, acrylic nails are being applied by nail artists, but you can have the same results, if you just follow the right steps. Here is what you need to do:
First clean the nail by wiping with a gauze and non-acetone nail plate cleaner, then file the nail and remove the shine off the nail with nail buffer. Next, apply the nail resin (From Backscratchers acrylic kit) 1/8 away from the nail cuticle and spray the activator to set and dry the resin. Slightly file the nail. File, measure and cut the nail tip and use resin to apply the tip to the nail, apply the resin and use activator to dry.
Dust the acrylic powder over the nail: NO BRUSH ACRYLIC, ISN’T THAT AMAZING AND EASY AS 1,2, 3… Apply the resin and activator and file… Do this twice and you are done! File and shine the nail with a buffer. Polish the nail if desired.
