how i do my nails at home | DIY fake nails *no acrylic*

    ☆ products used ☆
    - nail clippers
    - nail buffer
    - cuticle remover (optional)
    - orange stick (optional)
    - 100% acetone
    - kiss nail tips (curve overlap style)
    - coarse nail file
    - alcohol or gel cleanser liquid
    - lint-free wipes
    - gel primer
    - gel nail color (i used made him blush by sensationail)
    - gel clear coat
    - UV curing light
    **i recommend buying a gel nail kit! you can buy any gel kit, the one i use is the sensationail gel kit! i got it from target for $25 and it includes the gel cleanser, gel primer, lint-free wipes, UV light, a gel nail color & a gel clear coat. both the gel kit and nail tips will last you multiple manicures, which ends up saving you a lot of money! *AKA CHEAP*
    p.s. i wouldn't recommend doing this technique with classic nail polish. if you want to use a polish, i would still do at least 2 coats of a clear gel, wipe clean with the gel cleanser, wash your hands and then paint over the cured gel! the gel acts as a structure to hold the tips in place!

    do you think stores have pre-shaped nails at a sane size? i understand that these are long because everyone likes a different size and shape, but i am absolutley terrible at filing. so im jw if they have some that are already shaped for you. thanks

    Guys by the way if u don't have a UV lamp use ACRYLIC because acrylic can dry without a UV lamp you can use a blow dryer on COOL. To dry just put a normal nail polish top coat or/and clear acrylic.
    Poly gel uses light to cure while acrylic doesn't . xox

    One thing i noticed that next time maybe you could set up your camera a different way so your chest isnt the background...
    so lately ive been watching these videos and so far yours is one of the bests.
    keep doing them girl, your good at it.
    i have done it, like tips and just gel polish, but it lasted me for like 4 days becasue gel polish didnt hold it in place enough i guess.

    Hi Sophia! I’m a licensed nail technician, all around you did absolutely amazing you show an extreme natural talent for preforming nail enhancements. Here are a few things you misunderstood, you definitely do not have to make your natural nail short every time you do a new set simply shape your free edge or the end of your nail to fit in the well of the tip, this will allow you to constantly grow your natural nail and eventually the use for glue on tips will be unnecessary as the length you want will be completely natural nail, what you referred to as a gel primer would be considering an acid free primer or a protein bond. These will dry sticky where as acid based primers will dry chalky, and that sticky little layer called the inhibition layer or tack layer allow gel to bond together without constant etching or filing ! Try using a cuticle oil to keep those pretty babies moisturized and keep killing it girly !!

    Instead of using the gel cleanser you can just use rubbing alcohol!
