Besides, it has specific fluids which smell not absolutely pleasantly.


Before use it is necessary to remember that powder on an acrylic basis doesn't possess curative properties, and strengthens nails only due to mechanical effect.

Powder differs by types:

  • the color – is applied to design decisions in modern style, for example, a neyl-art. Use of color particles can be both on all nail, and on its part. The nacreous basis for creation, both the most gentle classical designs, and festive types of manicure is sometimes used;
  • the transparent – a basis is used for creation of a natural covering, without excess patterns. It is applied to creation of the French manicure or the simple strengthening covering. Here it is possible to carry a mirror type of powder at which the brilliant basis is put over special platinum with a specular reflection;
  • the camouflaging – a basis under manicure which hides defects of nails. Such means can be put even with a thin layer – it will perfectly eliminate and will hide roughnesses or stratifications;
  • finishing covering. The top layer which consists of powder, can include a glitter (brilliant parts can the different sizes: from the smallest, to volume) or a velvet covering.

As it is correct to use

Before starting using powder, it needs to be chosen. It is necessary to remember that the main criterion is a result which needs to be reached:

  • to fill a marigold with an equal surface, it is necessary to give preference to powder with the camouflaging properties. Its color has to coincide with a shade of nails, therefore, a palette of a choice are cream and gentle-pink tone;
  • to strengthen plates for shellac, or to carry out simple correction of a shape of a nail, powder of a transparent look is ideally suited. Such acryle can be also applied at the French manicure;
  • to make neyl-design on nails, it is better to use a covering of a glitter, or a color basis for manicure. The general design is limited, in that case, only by the imagination.

There are some methods of application of acrylic powder: simple drawing on nail plates, or use of means atop gel varnish.

The technology of putting powder on gel varnish is quite simple. Necessary actions:

  • to carry out cleaning of nails (to remove a cuticle and to file a marigold to the necessary form);
  • to cut nail platinum a little to an equal, glossy surface – so the varnish will lay down ideally and coupling with shellac will be strong;
  • to degrease fingers solution of special type. If such isn't available – usual alcohol will approach (it can't be rubbed too strongly, differently the surface will be overdried);
  • after drying to put a basic covering. At a choice of brand it is necessary to remember that it is necessary to dry some means in a special lamp some minutes. All information can be found in an insert to a varnish. If artificial drying isn't necessary, simply let's have a rest to nails some minutes on air;
  • to use gel varnish. Its drawing doesn't differ from a simple covering. You shouldn't pass an outer edge of a nail is will allow "to seal" shellac on all surface;
  • to powder a layer of a damp varnish with acrylic powder. If it is necessary to cover with powder all nail, for a start it is necessary to dip it into the container with powder, sealing structure and after that, having a finger on a support, to shower with a shovel the remained surface. It is necessary to shake surplus, then a nebkhodima an easy vtirka (you shouldn't touch with fingers – use for this purpose brushes). After - to rosushit under a lamp nails within 3 minutes;
  • brush to process each nail after drying for smoothing of the remained roughnesses;
  • to cover with a finishing varnish coat for effect of smoothness.
