Things to prepare for applying Acrylic Nails

Form Application

  1. Remove the sticker from the centre of the from and stick it to the back to strengthen the form.
  2. Acrylic Form Sticker
  3. Check the shape of the hyponychium (where the nail separates from the skin), and then cut the edge of the form in the shape.
  4. Apply the form on the hyponichium (along the skin right under the nail). Make sure the centre line of the form comes to the centre of the nail.
  5. Apply Acylic Nail Form
  6. Stick the sides of the form together at the bottom.
  7. Please check the angle of the form.
  8. Angle of Form

How to Pick Acrylic Mixture

  1. Dip the brush into the acrylic liquid gently and let the brush absorb enough acrylic liquid.
  2. Lightly touch the surface of acrylic powder with one side of the brush for 1 second to pick the acrylic powder. There is no need to turn the brush to pick when using a small brush.
  3. Pick Acrylic Powder
  4. This wet acrylic powder is called "Acrylic Mixture". At first, the mixture looks dotty and then it becomes smooth like a jelly bean in 5 to 10 seconds.
  5. Dotty Acrylic Mixture Smooth Acrylic Mixture
  6. These are the different consistencies of acrylic mixture. Try to make the perfect consistency every time.
  7. Good Acrylic Mixture Too Dry Acrylic Mixture Too Wet Acrylic Mixture
  8. In this tutorial, I use terms such as tiny, small, medium and large depending on the size of the acrylic mixture that I would like you to pick.
  9. Small Acrylic Mixture Medium Acrylic Mixture Large Acrylic Mixture
  10. Please make sure to wipe the brush in between each pick on a paper towel to keep both the brush and liquid clean.
