Before you start building acrylic nails, prepare them: wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water and disinfect each nail plate with a special spray (or antiseptic gel). Perform dry manicure if necessary. Apply a softening compound (fruit acid based) to the cuticle and after a while push it back with an orange stick.
File your nails with the file in one direction. Using a file with a coarse grain, remove the top coat of the nails with gentle and light strokes, taking care not to damage the cuticles. Remove the dust formed after processing with a special brush.
Apply a thin layer of primer to the nail plates, being careful not to get on the skin. After the liquid has dried, lubricate all nails with primer again. Take the mold and place it on the phalanx of the finger so that it is located under the corners of the nail, leaving no gaps. Gently join the ends of the mold, it should take a natural and correct curve.
Pour liquid into a glass container, moisten the brush and squeeze thoroughly, it should remain practically dry. Take a small ball of white acrylic with a brush, apply to the mold and spread it over the entire surface with light pressure. Dip the brush in liquid and form a smile line. Pay attention to the fact that acrylic will slowly cure. Align the end of the future nail and the sides.
Form a ball of pink acrylic and brush it onto your natural nail. The white and pink layers should overlap slightly. Smooth the surface of the nail with light brush strokes. Soak it in liquid and apply a second bead of acrylic over the cuticle area (leave about one millimeter from the cuticle edge), align the surface and sides.
Soak the brush again in the liquid and apply a third ball of powder to the stressful area of the nail (the junction of the white and pink layer) for strength, keeping the surface slightly damp. Wait until the acrylic is completely dry and remove the molds. With a coarse file, start leveling the nail, tilt the file at an angle, try not to touch the skin. Sand the surface of the acrylic nail with a fine-grained file.
It remains to apply a finishing layer of transparent varnish on the nails, dry, lubricate the cuticle area with special oil and distribute along the length of the nail.
