|With purple glitter tips.|
UV-gel (pink or clear if you have coloured tips)
UV-gel top coat (optional, you can also just polish the finished nail)
Cleanser (acetone, don't use nailpolish removers with added oils. Pure acetone is the best)
Superglue (or nail glue, usually the same stuff)
Nail tips (coloured or pre-painted ones if you don't want to finish off with regular nailpolish, or natural or clear if you want to add polish on top)
1. Cut your own nails short. You can keep nails longer if you want, but you can feel the nail edge on the underside of the gel nails and it might be harder keep your nails clean.
|My natural nails cut short.|
|Nail surface is filed to give it texture.|
|Add glue (I use regular superglue) carefully.|
4. Check that each tip is positioned right, if not, dissolve the glue with nailpolish remover or UV cleanser and re-glue it. Cut the tips to the desired length and finish with a nail file to get the edges neat.
|Uncut tips, this is how long you can make your nails with these ones!|
|I didn't want very long nails, so they were cut shorter.|
|Add the UV-gel with a brush.|
|Finished nails! Mine have ready-made purple glitter tips.|
