How I do acrylic stilettos (beginner!)

dsc_2129

Today’s tutorial is different from usual; this week I’ll show you how I do my acrylic nails!

A few months back, I decided to switch to false nails due to work always destroying my natural nails… It simply was more of a source of frustration than of enjoyment to have my natural nails be long. With acrylic, there’s no breaking! And if I (almost) tear one off, I can just build a new one in minutes 😉

-Naio Nails Max Adhesion acrylic monomer

  1. File and gently buff the natural nails
  2. Remove any oils with rubbing alcohol
  3. Apply two layers of a primer
  4. Put on the nail form and apply the acrylic
  5. Once the acrylic is fully dry, carefully remove the nail form
  6. File the acrylic nail with an e-file/handfile (or both)
  7. Rub the acrylic nail with some acetone
  8. Finish it off with either normal or gel nail polish
