DIY Acrylic Nails: Skip the Salon and Do-It-Yourself

Salon taking up too much of your time and costing you too much money?  Try DIY acrylic nails with our handy step-by-step tutorial!
     Most women have a beauty weakness. Some ladies need to get their hair done every weeks, some have mounds of shoes, etc. My weakness is nails. I LOVE going to the salon and getting a brand new shiny set of acrylics or gels. However, it was costing me about $50 a week or more depending on what “extras” I wanted that week… What a woman will do for guilty pleasure! Unfortunately, with hubby and I’s tight budget, this guilty pleasure had to be reigned in.

     Anyways, I decided to make an effort and learn how to do DIY acrylic nails. After all, I am super crafty and can pull off nice nail art when I really put my mind to it. I will warn you — doing your own acrylics IS tricky. Make sure not to rush the process. It may take you a few times to get the hang of it. But if you can push through the learning process, I guarantee you it’s worth it. My beauty weakness has turned into an awesome new DIY skillset. I’ve become pro at doing DIY acrylic nails for me and all my friends!

     So read on for a step-by-step tutorial and please let me know how it goes:

     DIY Acrylic Nails | Nail Art Tutorial

Things you’ll need:

cuticle remover
nail pusher
polishing block/buffer
nail tip
nail glue
clipper
nail file
nail dehydrator
acid free primer
acrylic liquid
acrylic powder
little glass jar
synthetic brush
paper towel
top coat
cuticle balm
Let’s get started!


Step 1. Clean and Buff.
     Before doing your own acrylic nails, never forget to clean your nails thoroughly and buff afterwards.

Step 2. Nail Tip.
     Choose a nail tip that fits your nail and your style preference. Here we are using a classic french tip.

Step 3. Glue the nail tip.
     Apply nail glue on the tips of your nails and stick on the nail tip. (Note:the glue dries quickly so you have to act fast!)

Step 4. Cut and File.
     Using a clipper to cut the nail tip to the desired length.

     File the edges and buff it once again after filing.

Step 5. Nail Dehydrator
     Apply a nail dehydrator to remove excess oil on your nails. This will make it easier for your nail to bond to the acrylic.

Step 6. Acid Free Primer
     Once you apply the nail dehydrator, follow it with an acid primer. This will make the acrylic nails last longer.

Step 7. Acrylic Nail Preparation
     Prepare the acrylic liquid, acrylic powder, little jar or container, synthetic brush and a paper towel.

Step 8. Acrylic Nail Application
     Dip your brush into the acrylic liquid then into the acrylic powder.

     Apply the mixture into your nail and slowly apply it until you cover the whole nail. For bigger, stronger nails, apply another coat. Continue to do this procedure with all the nails.

     Let your nail dry for 2-5 minutes. Buff once dried and file.

Step 9. Finishing.
     Apply a hardening topcoat for a shiner finish. Finally, apply cuticle balm to keep your nail nice, soft and healthy.
