Welcome to the fabulous world of acrylic nails! 💅🏼✨
In case you’re not familiar, acrylics are when your nail tech applies a liquid and powder mixture to your natural nails to extend them and give you that instantly glam look.
I used to avoid acrylics because I thought they’d ruin my nails, but that’s totally not true! Unlike press-ons and glue-ons, properly applied acrylics protect your nail beds. And unlike gels, they allow you to go long without fear of breakage (plus, they don’t take forever to take off). 🙌 Win-win!
The best part is acrylics let you get super creative with shapes, lengths, and designs. In this slideshow below, I posted 43 cute AF acrylic inspo pics ranging from fierce stilettos to trendy almonds. There’s glitter, rhinestones, holiday-specific designs, chrome —all the good stuff!
So, tap through and happy scrolling!
