Natural clear acrylic nail designed almond-shaped and square have been around for a long time and probably aren’t going anywhere! They’re mostly done for special events (a wedding, graduation, etc.). But some people like to have acrylic nails for day-to-day life, too.
I’m a fan of natural nails. I’m always surprised at how easy it is to get natural acrylic nails. Even though most of the inspiration photos are significantly over the top.
When I say natural, I don’t necessarily mean super short. I think nails can be on the longer side and still look natural as long as they’re classy and clean, as well as on-trend concerning the color choices.
Tips For Getting Natural Clear Acrylic Nail:
When you are doing natural clear acrylic nails, I suggest you understand and ask about specific things.
- Find a nail salon near you that Google highly praises. I promise it’s worth it. And I don’t know how many times I went to a four-star nail shop to do manicures, and I was very disappointed. I always assumed it would be okay (when it was not at all) and learned my lesson after doing some scary nails.
- Bring a particular inspiration photo to the appointment, even if it takes a while to see what you want. In my experience, technicians will often copy the same image, even if you request to modify it.
- Decide the shape and length in advance, and be ready to say it out loud when nailing your nails.
- Cut it shorter than you want. The nails overgrow, and your acrylic nails will overgrow.
- Apply gel nail polish on acrylic nails instead of regular nail polish. In my opinion, it will last longer, making it worth having them
- Tell your technician how important it is to make your acrylic nails look natural. Acrylic nails can quickly become bulky, so you want to make sure they are filed very thinly.
- Find out whether you want a matte or glossy finish, and then tell your technician what you want. If you don’t mention it, they might use a polished finish.
- Wear gloves when washing dishes after the manicure. This will keep the color brighter and shiny.
- Requires immersion hair removal. As with gel nails, you have to soak acrylic nails in acetone for 30 minutes, and then a technician will remove them. Otherwise, you risk damaging the natural nails.
