NAIL TIPS vs. NAIL FORMS | I USED BOTH! Which is Better?? Glittered Acrylic Nails Tutorial!

911 ratings | 15466 views
I thought it would be a cool idea to Compare the difference between Using Nail Tips vs. Sculpting Forms to complete a Full Glittered Acrylic Nail Set at home, like a DIY ya know, lol I used nail forms on my right hand and nail tips on my left hand. the outcome is the same when applying acrylic is done correctly. There are different pros and cons for both nail tips and nail forms. Which technique do you like better or prefer? ----------------------------------------------------------- WHAT IS A NAIL TIP? A nail tip is a piece of molded plastic that is basically a fake nail. nail tips are glued onto the nail plate. Some nail tips fully cover the nail plate whereas others only cover a portion of the nail. acrylics or gel products are then applied over the nail tip for a thicker and stronger nail. WHAT ARE NAIL FORMS? Nail forms are basically large stickers that are applied to the nail plate. Nail forms can be disposable or re-useable. Nail forms also come in two different types: horseshoe and CND performance. WHICH IS BETTER? Personally, it simply comes down to the nail tech’s preference and comfort levels what he/she chooses to work with or what the client prefers on his/her nails. Some people believe that nail tips are stronger than nail forms because there is a fundamental structure under the nail. On the other hand, others believe that nail forms are better because they don’t put as much pressure on the nail plate and are less likely to break or damage the natural nail. I prefer sculpting forms because nail tips require a bit more work and must be precisely measured, filed and shaped in order to have a longer lasting set. The stress point is not as strong when using nail glue and sometimes causes damage to the natural nail bed. I do believe that Sculpting the nails takes a bit more practice because you're starting from nothing and building an entire nail. But, once this technique is learned, it's faster. with nail tips you have a foundation to follow and lay the acrylic on top of! --------------------------------------------------------------------- Watch MORE allofdestiny Nail Tutorials EVERY NAIL TUTORIAL I'VE EVER UPLPADED IS In this PLAYLIST 👇🏾 https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLITRlZFN-561yPgiEUIQDtk1ZQitJPf_P LEOPARD UV LAMP UNBOXING 2015 https://youtu.be/Sv-RD3FjzdY OLD NAILS TUTORIAL USING NAIL TIPS (2011) OMG! https://youtu.be/2Y8ucIGzTbk COFFIN NAILS TUTORIAL (PREVIOUS NAILS TUTORIAL) https://youtu.be/NZj3_plCnQk Although I wasn't able to mention all pros/cons in one short video, I hope you enjoy this comparison just the same.

Diamond Television (1 year ago)
i have a question...How do i clean my brush ????cause i find when im doing my nails the acrylic dries on my brush and i cant get it off
allofdestiny (1 year ago)
Diamond Television happens to me sometimes too. I wipe off on a paper towel often to get the excess off before it dries. I dip into the liquid and wipe to remove excess as well. Hope this helps.
Destiny, How do you keep down the smell of the acrylic liquid? I used a humidifier in the room and it didn't help. It's so strong.

Does the acrylic liquid that you use smell really strong? I have the one from kiss and the smell stays in the house for daysssss 😩😫
Michelle Anderson (1 year ago)
allofdestiny nail forms are the best way
allofdestiny (1 year ago)
Katrina Clarke yes it does have a smell but not for days. I clean my area immediately and wipe my things down with pinesol or whatever cleaning products I have. I do my nails outside in the warmer months lol. Dump that leftover acrylic and clean up the dust. Hope this helps.
