Acrylic nails and designs

I love acrylic nails. I tried gel and it just didn’t work. They popped off like popcorn. Maybe it was the length I choose. I just don’t know. The first set you see I did for my holiday. I was going for the American Independence Day theme, red, white and blue. If only I knew that you did not get many Americans in Ibiza.

Last year I was stuck on the black tips trend. I Think I will definitely do coloured tips as the basic me look. As the nail shops charge too much I will endeavour to bring my own nail colour unless I can find a shop that has one price and no charges for extras.

PS – The length of these current set in the first picture is making it hard for me to type. I will get them shortened asap.

    I’m an acrylic nail fan as well!It’s been a while, but I am fond of them!

    I like the length of the 2nd picture! I used grow my own nails really long and always got an overlay! But not anymore! I think my nails look better shorter!

    I’m ultra boring tho, I need to venture out with the designs, I’ve seen some really nice ones on friends!

    …P.S. I tagged you in my latest tag post.

    I heard gel was better than acrylics? But what do I know as I never do my nails anyway! Wanted to but now confused about which ones to go for!
