  2. Place your glue at the edge that is going to be applied to your fingernail

  3. Apply as close to the free edge of your nail as possible (remember tips are for length, not strength)

  4. After it is firmly in place, cut to length

  5. File in to desired shape

  6. Now you are ready to prep for acrylic application

Practice your acrylic ball
02:06

I suggest watching this video several times and practice using your practice finger or grab a pencil pop a bit of blue tac on and stick your tip to it, you don't need to go out and spend lots of money on practice tools.

Practice is the key to becoming an expert, the more times you do it the better you will get at it.

When I was learning I had a poster on my wall of the nail shape I wanted to perfect and at night I closed my eyes and visualized it, before long I was able to do that shape easy every time.

As you are practiced keep your brush clean by constantly dipping it in your monomer and wiping clean on absorbent kitchen paper, this will prevent lumps of acrylic forming in your brush.

Have fun practicing getting your consistency right, not too runny and not too hard 

Acrylic application

In this section you will learn how to apply natural acrylic to nails

I have included in this lecture a template to practice your acrylic balls, print it out and place inside a plastic sleeve and practice as often as you like, you want to keep your acrylic inside the lines so this is a good way to practice your consistency. I will upload a video of this shortly
