Sep 23, 2011
As many of you know, Nailene is the expert when it comes to at-home acrylic systems. If you are an acrylic user or hoping to be one, Nailene has a collection of acrylics systems products that will help you get perfect-looking salon nails in no time. To ensure you have all the proper tools and products, our Deluxe Salon Acrylic Kit (#77197) is the complete professional kit for multiple acrylic nails and fills. It’s easy to do this salon process easily and conveniently from your own home at a price you can afford. This kit contains all the necessary components, all housed in a handy case.
With the Deluxe Salon Acrylic kit in hand, here’s a step-by-step guide to getting perfect acrylics:
Step 1. Prep your nails by first removing any previous nail polish.
Step 2. Next, sanitize your nails. Use an antibacterial hand wash like HandClens to clean your hands and fingernails thoroughly.
Step 3. Trim and shape your nails using a nail file. Take an orangewood and gently push
back the cuticles. Take the nail buffer and gently remove the shine on the surface to help the adhesion. Remove the dust.
Step 4. Apply forms or tips to the nails.
Step 5. Sparingly apply nail primer to the nails. Do not touch the skin or cuticles. You need to apply only a single, even coat of nail primer. Once it dries well, it will appear sticky and you can now begin to apply acrylic nails.
Step 6. Now here’s the trickier (more coordinated) part of applying acrylic nails. Dip the brush in acrylic liquid (monomer) and then into the acrylic powder to form a ball. When you have an acrylic ball on the brush, take out the brush slowly.
Step 7. Place this ball on your nail’s base and carefully flatten it with the brush, spreading it all over the nail, moving the brush from the base towards the tip. Apply additional balls of acrylic where necessary.
Step 8. Now, shape and paint your nails as desired.
Easy, gorgeous nails by you and Nailene… and you can skip the cost of a salon visit!
