But first, I had someone ask me a little while ago what products I use on my own nails and I thought I’d just list them all here. Please bear in mind that I am no professional, I just like to do my own nails. So here’s we go:
For acrylics I use:
-Beauty Secrets Grabber nail primer
-A.S.P. Bonding Acrylic Powder
-A.S.P. Prism Glitter Acrylic Powder (you can get A.S.P. at Sally Beauty Supply)
-Kiss Acrylic Kit (it’s hard to find acrylic liquid here if you’re not a professional so this works in a pinch if I can’t get it from a supplier on online)
-for coloured acrylics I just purchased a few cheap sets that I found on ebay
For gels I use:
-NSI Balance Bond primer
-NSI Builder Gels
-IBD Soak Off Gels
-OPI lint free wipes
And I also use Super Nail Line B Gone when I do my fills and IBD Intense Seal which is a long lasting top coat that needs to be cured with a UV lamp.
That’s for laying down the nails and then I just decorate my nails to match however I feel that week using tons of different decorations…nail canes, metal beads, glitter…
These are my nails from 2 weeks ago. I needed something to get my hubby off my back. He doesn’t quite get on with my “crazy spangley” nails. My response? You married an asian chick. What do you expect? But I couldn’t do them just plain pink, so I used fimo nail slices to jazz them up just a teeny tiny bit.
And these are the nails I’m sporting right now. Super simple light pink glitter acrylic with one little 3d acrylic heart on it. This was my first real attempt at it. I’m surprised I managed to get it to look somewhat like a heart.
So when I get interested in something, I get obsessive. So I sat down and tried to do more 3d acrylic nail art to practice. Here’s what I came up with:
