DIY Acrylic Nails!

If you're like me then you absolutely love getting your nails done!  Whether if it's Acrylic or just a manicure! So today I'm going to show you a cheap and easy way to do 'Acrylic' Nails at home!

You Will Need -

1. Clean up your nails with a nail file, cuticle stick, and some nail oil!

2.Get your nail tips and choose the tips which fit your nails. 

3.Buff your nails ready for the application (This is so that the tips have something rough to grip onto!)

4. Apply a small amount of glue to the top of your nail

 5. Apply the nail tip

 6. Cut your nail tips with the nail tip cutter

7. Shape your nails to whatever is your desired shape you want (I chose the coffin/ballerina)

8. Get your corn flour and clear nail polish and mix together until you get sort of like a paste, then apply to your nail to the false tip

 9. Continue to do all your nails, let it sit for about 1 minute then gently file the rough corn flour away. You should be left with a smooth surface like this.

10. Apply a coat of clear nail varnish, then two coats of your chosen colour! Apply Nail Oil if you want to.
And wa lah! You're finished!!
