INSTRUCTION

  1. Before applying your Glam and Glits acrylic powder, be sure to properly prep the nail bed by removing any polish and wiping it with acetone.
  2. At this point, you’ll decide whether or not you’ll be applying the acrylic powder directly to the natural nail or if you’ll be attaching a nail tip.
  3. Next, you’ll buff away the shine on the nail plate and apply bond and primer to the entire nail bed to prevent lifting after application.
  4. Once you have your Glam and Glits acrylic powder of choice, be sure to roll the jar to properly disperse the powder.
  5. Next, dip your brush into the monomer. You’ll want to “burp” the brush and wipe off any excess so that all the liquid will sit at the end of the brush. Now, gently lay the brush tip into the surface of the powder and gather enough powder to apply to the entire nail for a single bead application.
  6. Once on the brush, allow the bead to look completely glossy before you begin placing it on the nail. When working with bead start a hairline away from the cuticle and move toward the free edge of the nail. When applying the acrylic, spread and tap it into the nail using the body of the brush and you can dip into monomer, if needed, during application to increase pliability. Be sure to tap lightly to allow for a smooth and flush application, this will help cut down on your filing time as well.
  7. Allow the acrylic to dry completely, you can tell this by tapping the end of your brush on the nail until you hear a slight clicking sound.
  8. Once dry, hand file the side walls and then go in with an e-file or buffer to smooth out the top of the nail. Once you are finished filing, simply apply a polish top coat over your color acrylic.
  9. The acrylic powder is formed from the reaction of the monomer liquid with the polymer powder. The monomers in the liquid are small chemical units that react when they’re mixed with the chemicals in the powder.
  10. Lastly, file and shape the side walls and clean up the cuticle with an e-file before applying your favorite top coat. 

 

HOW DO I REMOVE MY ACRYLIC

Removing acrylic powder can be done a number of ways, some easier than others. Two of the most common ways to remove acrylic are by e-filing the color down to the acrylic base so you don’t have to rebuild the entire nail or soaking them off with warm acetone. You can warm the acetone by running the bottle under hot water and it will soak through the hardened acrylic powder much easier. Do not microwave the acetone or put it anywhere near a direct heat source because it is extremely flammable.

  1. To begin, clip the tips from your acrylic nails down to a short length.
  2. Next, file away the top coat on your acrylic. For this you can either use an e-file or a buffer, whichever you prefer.
  3. Now, soak a cotton ball in the warm acetone and apply it directly to the top of your nail, covering what’s left of the acrylic, and wrap the individual finger in foil. You will repeat this step on all of your nails and let them soak for 20-30 minutes.
  4. Upon removing the foil, wipe the nail with the soaked cotton ball and all of the acrylic should come off with it! If you see any remnants of the acrylic left on the nail you can simply buff them away before you begin filing and shaping the natural nail. Now that you’re acrylic is completely removed you have a fresh canvas for your next set of acrylics!
