Many women love the look of acrylic nails because well-groomed hands and nails make them feel pretty and feminine.
Acrylic can be much stronger than natural nails, and they will maintain a manicure for a longer period of time.
This can be the perfect solution for those of us who tend to bite our nails under stress, or simply possess nails that become brittle easily.
If you are tired of shelling out money to a salon more than once every month, perhaps you are ready to give DIY acrylic nails a try from home.
Most women who have begun to do acrylic nails themselves have found that with a bit of practice, this can be a less expensive way to keep a beautiful manicure intact.
There are a few tools and supplies that you will need to have on hand to complete the process, including a buffer and nail brush, liquid and powder acrylic, and a pair of acrylic nail clippers.
If you decide to go with an acrylic nail kit – and this is often the best choice for a beginner – these tools may be included.
Once you have assembled your supplies, you are ready to begin your professional-looking home manicure.
