A lot of people email me asking how my nails always stay shiny and chip free, and the secret is that I put a thin layer of acrylic over my real nails. A lot of the celebrities do this as well in case you’ve been wondering how their manicures always look smooth and amazing.
For my nails, I keep the original length and then coat my real nail with a thin layer of acrylic, key word THIN. I make them buff it down very, very thin, so thin they yell at me every time “TOO THIN GON CHIP!”… shhh keeeep going.
The acrylic gives your nail polish a stronger base to hold onto, and a smoother nail surface so your nail polish doesn’t chip! If you really want to ensure they look flawless, after that you can even add a gel polish on top of the acrylic which is what I do now.
So there you have it, acrylic + gel polish = nail perfection. It’s a lot of maintenance yes, but nails are my thing so for me it’s worth it.
