Acrylic FAQs

1. Start of by Pouring the Premium Nail Mate acrylic liquid into a dappen dish.

2. Dip your acrylic brush into the dappen dish making sure to submerge the bristles. Push the brush to the bottom of the dappen dish to 'fan out' the bristles. This will get the air bubbles out of the bristles and make sure it's fully coated in monomer.

3. Wipe your brush on the edge of the dappen dish to drain the excess liquid off. Wipe less of for a larger bead, and wipe more off for a small bead.

4. Dip your brush tip into your Nail Mate acrylic powder and pull the brush tip through the powder towards you at a 45 degree angle until you create a bead of acrylic.

5. Press the back of your brush (with acrylic powder bead on) to a lint-free wipe or desk pad to drain the excess liquid off if needed.

6. Apply the bead of acrylic to the centre of the nail and bring the bead down to the very tip. Point the nail down as you are doing this to help prevent the acrylic from flooding the cuticle area and side walls. Next add another bead near the cuticle and pull down the nail blending over the previous bead.

7. Sculpt the acrylic by pressing the brush flat to your nail and gently moving smoothing out any bumps. It's important to remember to keep your brush clean by dipping it into the acrylic liquid and wiping frequently during the application process.

8. If you need more product to cover the entire nail, repeat the steps above until your desired nail length and shape is achieved.
