Acrylic nails, oftentimes, must be applied using a fingernail glue, which is effectively the same as regular cyanoacrylate or super glue. However, plenty of products exist that allow you to simply peel and stick, eliminating a potential mess and facilitating easier removal.
Select the size of nail you want. Acrylic nails come in different lengths and widths to fit a variety of fingers.
File your natural nails so they are fingertip length or shorter.
Clean your fingernails with rubbing alcohol and a cotton ball, or the alcohol pad supplied with the kit, if present. If you have any previous nail polish, remove this with acetone or nail-polish remover.
Flip over the first acrylic nail you wish to apply. Carefully remove the adhesive backing with a pair of tweezers.
Center the nail on your natural one. Press and hold firmly for at least 15 seconds, ensuring a tight bond.
File the acrylic nails as desired.
