Acrylic nail art is different from gel and polish, as you’ll typically have to use powder after your base coat. Just because you’re using acrylic nails, it does not mean you can skip the proper treatments for your nail. You should always use cuticle remover and a base coat. You can use fake nails to add more drama to your nails, and they often come pre-painted with very cute designs. With acrylic nails, you’ll need to do your nail as fast as possible since the acrylic will get hard after a short amount of time. That means you should create a cute acrylic nail art shape beforehand and be sure to cover the entire nail with a cloth before the acrylic hardens.
