Acrylic nails are an extension on your natural nails.  In order for them to be applied, your natural nail bed is filed down to create a rough surface for the glue to adhere to the nail extension.  Once this is done, acrylic powder and liquid monomer are combined in a blob of dough, shaped on the nail with a brush and moulded onto the natural nail to create the acrylic nail extension. The nail extension will be shaped and buffed, and then painted with either regular or gel polish.

Acrylics are ideal for people looking to change the length and shape of their nails, and are one of the more popular and hard wearing of all nail enhancements available in the UK.

The GTi Tips with Acrylic Overlay course covers how to complete the application and demonstrates the correct removal techniques.  The course also covers reception and consultation, contra-indications to treatment and aftercare advice.
