What You’ll Need to Create Chic Floral Acrylic Nails:
- Nail Tips

- Madam Glam – Snow White

- INM – Out The Door Top Coat
- Pink Gel for picking up studs
- Nail Studs
- Essie Matte Top Coat
Step 1: Prepare the Extended Fake Nail Tips
First, attach fake nail tips on your nails. Make sure to file these tips into a stiletto shape.
Then, using a buffing tool, lightly file your nail bed to even it out. Make sure to turn it to the lowest setting.
Filing and buffing will leave some debris, so make sure to dehydrate your nails with 99% alcohol. Afterward, apply two coats of organic nails protein bond to nourish your nails.
Step 2: Apply the Acrylic
Place one bead of acrylic right on top of where you attached your fake nail tape. Then add one more bead on the tip of your stiletto nails.
The third bead should be applied near your cuticle. Finally, wipe off any acrylic that got on your skin.
Step 3: Apply the Dark Floral Decals
When the acrylic dries off, file and buff your nails until they’re even. You can now cut up the floral images you chose.
Soak one piece at a time for about 20 seconds before attaching. To make it stick well on your acrylic nails, apply a base coat.
After making sure the decals are properly applied on your nail, use acetone to clean up any excesses.
Step 4: The Final Touches
Use a sponge to remove excess water from the decal. This will also help smooth out creases.
With a brush dipped in acetone, clean off any excess decal paper from your nail. Repeat the same step for the white glam floral nail.
As for the rest of your nails, apply a dark plum polish. You only need to apply a matte topcoat and that’s it! Doesn’t this look super chic?
