There’s a reason why acrylic pink-and-whites remain a challenging service to the master, from preparing and priming the nails to applying the product and putting the final touches on a finished set (and a staple of nail competitions, where the slightest error in the application is impossible to disguise). Here, we show you how to make the ideal pair of pink-and-white acrylic embellishments.
Take a look at the step-by-step!
Step-by-Step:

1st Steps in Making Acrylics

  1. Clean Your Hands Thorougly
    Begin by cleansing your hands and instructing the client to wash and brush her nails using a clean, dry nylon nail brush. Thoroughly dry your hands. File and shape the natural nails with a 180-grit file, leaving the free edge flat or square so that the forms fit the bottom of the free edge perfectly. Remove the shine off the natural nails using a very fine-grit buffer (being careful not to harm the natural nail); you may also use a fine diamond, round-tip e-file bit on a low speed, holding the bit flat.

  1. Clean the Dust From Your Nails
    Remove the dust from the nails with a clean brush. Touching the nails with your fingers might cause your skin to deposit oils on the nails, resulting in incorrect product adherence.

  1. Use a dehydrator
    After the dust has been removed, use a dehydrator to eliminate any impurities remaining on the nails and to dry the nail plate. Apply one coat of priming to all 10 nails (apply abundantly but sparingly—do not flood the cuticles or sidewalls) using a sticky primer or a typical acid-based primer for greater adherence. Allow the primer to dry before applying the forms to the nails.

See page 2 for details on how to create the improvement.

4. Make a decision on reversing the traditional application.
Pink-and-white acrylics may be made using either reverse or regular application methods. Apply the white product first for the conventional look. Applying all of the whites first keeps you focused on one method and allows you to go back and adjust the C-curve if necessary. As you work, your liquid monomer will get a little milky, which is why you should complete all of the whites first, then swap out the liquid to apply the pink product. Pick up a ball of white powder, turn the brush over, and press out excess liquid on a clean piece of the table cloth for each tip. (Releasing extra liquid provides you greater control without shortening the timer.)

5 Ways to Do Acrylics

  1. When to Wipe Smile Lines
    It takes experience and familiarity with your product to know when to wipe your grin lines. Dip your sculpting brush into the liquid and rapidly wipe it off, spinning the tip of the bristles on a table cloth for a precise point. Wipe and refine your smile line form with a straight brush (upper end pointing to the ceiling) until the product no longer moves and is virtually set up.

Use the Pink Product
Apply the pink product after you’ve finished applying the white tip. By putting the white first and letting it dry, the white will have solidified by the time you apply the pink, preventing you from smoothing the pink into the smile line and ruining it. Place the pink in the middle of the nail plate and push it to the smile line without going over it with a huge ball. Apply a second, wetter, smaller ball of pink above the cuticle and let it run over the nail to create a seamless gradient of product.
Check the profile of each nail after the pink has been applied to ensure that each apex is thick enough and situated over the key stress region. If you need to apply the extra product, use a clear powder to avoid muddying the smile line.

Take out the Forms from the Nails


Take the forms off the nails. Form the tips, sides, and undersides of all ten nails using a hand file, ensuring sure they are of the same length and shape.

Form the Nail


Then, shape the surface of the nails using a hand file or a medium-grit e-file bit, beveling the product towards the cuticle to be flush with the natural nail. Examine the profiles of all ten nails once again.

Clean Up the Dust


Remove any dust that has accumulated on the nails. Repeat the filing processes using a smooth buffer: Smooth the top surface after shaping the tips, sides, and undersides of all ten nails. Remove the dust once more, and then seal the shins with a gel sealer. There’s a reason why acrylic pink-and-whites remain a challenging service to the master, from preparing and priming the nails to applying the product and putting the final touches on a finished set (and a staple of nail competitions, where the slightest error in the application is impossible to disguise).
