Step 1

Before starting the procedure, wash your hands with soap and water. File the surface of the nails with a large file in order to eliminate irregularities, correct their shape. Remove nail dust with a brush. Use a fine nail file to gently push back the cuticle.

Step 2

Then degrease your nails with a primer. This is a special degreasing agent that must be very carefully applied to the nail plates, avoiding contact with the cuticle and the skin around the nail.

Step 3

Now you can proceed directly to the modeling of nails. First, dip your brush in liquid. This name has a substance necessary for the acrylic to begin to harden, and later on for a long time kept on the nails. It also provides an even distribution of acrylic over the surface of the nail.

Step 4

Take a small ball of acrylic with a brush, place it at the very beginning of the nail plate - at the place where the nail comes into contact with the cuticle, and stretch it over the entire nail. If some acrylic gets on the cuticle, remove it with a special wooden spatula. Make sure the acrylic is flat on the nail in order to minimize subsequent nail corrections.

Step 5

After waiting 30 seconds for the acrylic to dry completely, start filing with a coarse file. It is not recommended to use metal tools when working with acrylic, as they can deform the material. File the edges of the nail first. And at the end with a fine-grained nail file, go over the surface in order to eliminate irregularities.

Step 6

Use a sanding file to remove finer irregularities from the surface of the nail and give it a glossy appearance. To soothe the cuticles, use a special oil. Wait 15 minutes, then wash your hands to remove residual oil and cover the nail plates with clear varnish. The acrylic coating is ready, you can start designing.
