French Tip Acrygel Nails

Recently I did acrygel nails with white tips for my cousin's prom. It was a bit of an experiment... We used white tip extensions but filed them down a ton so they were just peeking over the tip of her fingers but held a perfect smile line. I wasn't too happy with the tips I picked up, they were quite stuff and took some convincing to stay with glue. Basically I prepped the nail like I would for gels: buff, cleanse then glued the tips on, cut down the tips, buffed the tips, gel base coat\acrylic powder (3 coats) cured, buffed the nail (cleansed the accent, then stamped using a gold polish), one coat of gel top coat and cured it. It was quite the ordeal but I love the way they turned out. What do you think? Have you heard of acrgels? They also soak off much easier than regular gels!


  1. Those look nice! I like how they are supposed to soak off easier. The thing I don't like with gels is how they don't come off as easy as the other options out there!
