Acrylic nails or artificial nails are very popular, especially among those who have small and brittle nails. They are fake nails that are added either to the nail tips, or the entire nail lamina. Acrylic nails are the best option available for people who have a tendency of nail biting. They are also useful for people who have weak and lifeless natural nails.

If you already have plain or white acrylic nails and want to do something new with them, then you can always try these simple instructions to add glitter. If not, then you must learn how to apply the nails, and then follow these instructions. Here we have used basic crystal rose pink glitter powder, along with violet monomer, an acrylic brush, and a topcoat. Here are a few simple instructions.
- Dip the brush into the monomer, and wipe the excess monomer, in case it's dripping from the brush.
- Now, slowly dip the tip of the wet brush in the rose pink glitter powder, only to pick up a small ball of glitter.
- Place that ball on the tip of the nail, and flatten it in a straight horizontal line.
- Add as much glitter as required to cover the entire tip of the nail. Make sure you make a 'deep smile' line on the nail tip.
- Now, coat the entire nail, with the clear acrylic, and finish it by buffing it smooth. When you are done, you can apply your favorite topcoat.
Do not try to file the nails as filing can scuff the glitter, and reduce its shine too.
If you want the shine on your hands, go get the glitter powder in your favorite color and start glittering!
