I'm not a nail tech but seriously I tried it once and apart from Wallpapering, nothing has ever made me cry with frustration as much.
You have to prepare the nail with a pushy or they just fall off, but its more than that, something about how much liquid and powder is and how large and moist the "bead" of acrylic is...its super duper complex. In fact, I think you need to have a masters degree to do it
No really. Someone will come along but you'd be actually better off looking at videos on YouTube than getting a written description I reckon. Some total saddo full of their own self-importance will have done a tutorial (that's a piss take on myself by the way because I uploaded a tutorial this week on another topic!!)
