Super slick, ultra-cool white nails are all over this season’s catwalks. Less an absence of color, white polish glows sublimely in an ‘nails gone and grown up’ kinda way. Sophisticated, sleek and elegantly surreal, white nails are perfect for proms or smart nights out, lending you an air of mystery and aloofness.
Needless to say, I’m in love with white nails, and after much trial and error have discovered an acrylic powder that delivers the color brightness I want, combined with an easy application and long lasting durability.
Super Nail have created the most awesome powder for gloriously white acrylic nails. The application process is easy, it slides on like silk and is just right for creating today’s catwalk fashions in your own home.
How to use white acrylic powder
- Super Nail White Acrylic Powder
- Liquid Monomer – This mixer from Mia Secret is my favorite – low odor, great consistency, and produces a hard wearing finish.
- Bowl to put some of the liquid monomers in
- Nail clippers, files, buffer
- Nail polish remover
- Cotton pads
- Small brush such as an eyeshadow brush.
- Top coat
Follow these steps next:
- If you don’t want to apply the powder to your natural nails, here’s how to create stunning acrylic ones prior to applying the powder.
- Pour a little liquid into the bowl – you only need a small amount.
- Trim, file and buff your natural nails.
- Wipe your nails over with a pad soaked in polish remover. This not only removes any debris left from filing, but also natural oils are removed enabling the polish to adhere firmly.
- Starting with your dominant hand, apply the base coat.
- Allow to dry thoroughly.
- Take the brush and dip it in the monomer, squeezing off the excess liquid against the edge of the bowl.
- Lightly dip the wet brush into the powder, rolling it slightly to create a blob of mixture near the brush tip.
- In a sweep from the base to the tip of the nail, apply the acrylic mix. The layer doesn’t need to be thick to give a great finish.
- Repeat on your other nails.
- Allow to dry thoroughly. You can tell when it’s dry as it’ll sound hard when you tap the surface with the end of your brush.
- Gently buff the surface of the nail.
- Apply several top coats, drying thoroughly in between each coat.
Using this simple method, my nails generally last for up to three weeks of chip free awesomeness!
