I used clear Acrylic only for building the nails and went for a simple design - Black with purple glitter accents. Topped it off with a UV Gel Coat.
Working with Acrylic was a little tricky at first but I got the hang of it after doing a couple of nails, but my technique is still far from perfect. The result didn't differ much from when I did gel nails for the first time, but I have to say that the result is pretty damn good for being my first time working with Acrylic. I'm so glad that I decided to try Acrylic since they last so much better than Gel Nails! I've had them for about a week now and they're still as good as new, and I don't think they'll be breaking anytime soon. Unlike when I have Gel Nails, there are no cracks, no lifting - Nothing. I will definitely completely switch to Acrylic Nails from now on, but at least I will still have use for the UV Lamp that I originally got for working with Gel Nails.
I could talk forever about the differences between Gel Nails and Acrylic Nails since both have their pros and cons, but I will save that for another post since I feel like I've already been ranting on about this for too long.
Thank you for reading! Let me know what you think in the comments.
Bye for now, lovelies!
