I taught myself to do Acrylic Nails =D (Pics)

Posted by   + Show Post

I love glitter and I always have a lot going on but I do have some nice simple stuff in there. I've been doing my own nails a little over a year now and I've gotten way better but as you can see in some of the pics I did have some not so hot sets lol.

Love those! I feel like I've been working on shaping forever. I couldn't agree with your more though. I found some vids on youtube where you mix your acrylic with glitter to get glittertips. I usually try to put a clear top acrylic coat over everything to help with keeping the whole nail nice and consistant but when I'm shaping I tend to file down into my glitter. I'm thinking I also make them too thick =(

This was a client. I tried to take a photo of mine but I cant get them to look decent in a photo, im not talented enough. haha. 

These are acrylic and gel. No I do not use tips, i strongly dislike tips.

Lol I know it's hard to take a good pic of your own hands!

I hate tips! Can't stand them :)
I'll post a pic of some of mine that I did recently if you want to see them. I can't reply with photo since I'm mobile. :(

Some tie dye ones I did on myself. These were one of my faves. I'm sad the company discontinued the neon colors I used :(

Awesome design. These are too long to be convenient for me, work reasons and such, but I'd totally rock the design on shorter nails!
