Jamia Davidson: This may be a silly question, but I thought I would ask since I'm not too
experienced with doing my own nails. Would I be able to use a white tip and
do the same technique that you did in the video? Instead of doing acrylic
nails the normal way
Lovely Jenelle: How do you prevent bubbles?
Tamara Scott: I've been watching your channel for a while off and on. The tips u give for
nail care are helpful. Since I've been watching you, I've started doing my
own nails. Your nails are beautiful. I have 1 big problem.....my nails
keeps splitting on the sides. It's really my thumb nails. Why does this
keep happening? Am I filing wrong etc. Please help me with a nail regimen.
Thank you so much.
Dianelys Alvarez: Hi i just saw this definitely going to go for it, but I have a question can
you use regular polish once you finish this process?
Stephanie Carter: Hello Anna, I have fallen in love with your videos. Can you please tell me
what type of wipes you are using with the cleanup? I found some lint-free
wipes, but they are extremely small. Thanks for your assistance. ~New
ladymayala: Hi Anna! Quick question: with this overlay, is it better to file your nails
to trim them or cut them? I ask because it seems like cutting them would
make the overlay crack.
Franchesca Holton: So its gel acrylic gel acrylic then seal it?
Joslyn Ward: Can you paint your nails after you have used this method?
Andrea Handley: I am just curious, why bother putting an acrylic powder over the gel? Gel
is designed to be strong on its own... Not even sure the acrylic powder
does anything, since acrylic is a polymer and is used with a liquid which
is called a monomer, by combining the two it makes for a hard substance. It
may look like an easy way to do nails but seriously if you want strong
nails with an enhancement do the base, 3 layers of thin soak off gel top
coat and cure, if your going to shape the nail and smooth it out i would
use a finer grit as to not cut into the gel with a coarse grit because gel
is soft not hard like acrylic... also lightly file your natural nails so
that you do NOT do damage to them, most soak off gels don't even require
you to file the natural nail to remove the shine.. just a good sanitizer to
dull the nail and take a way the shine, acetone does well.
Carolina Méndez Hernández: Thank you so much for this vídeo. Would you be so kind and guide me on
where to find the very specific products? I live un Costa Rica and would
love to have this done on my nails. Also, is there a difference between a
UV lamp and a LED lamp? May you help me understand TVE difference? Thanks
again. I dream Of having beautiful long nails like yours.
KandiViXenKHAOS: this is VERY useful :3 I can't grow my nails for the LIFE of me, so, if I
can find the money, I'll deff dry THIS :DDD
Elias Barajas: Are these as hard as non soak off gels? I use my nails to play guitar but
they are too brittle and break easily, I've tried soak off gels but they
are too flexible.
Skram Amme: I did this and it worked really well.
However, after I cure the the gel/acrylic powder mix it's always gritty,
even though the acrylic powder feels super fine. It also gets on the brush
of the soak off gel when I go to do a second coat, so I've been wiping the
nail with an alcohol wipe before the second coat which helps, but it's
still not a smooth finish regardless of whether I wipe the cured layer or
not before doing a second layer.
Kaitlin Eppler: I have a few questions.
-The biggest one, is this technique just as strong as the acrylic nails I
I am concerned because I am a waitress and I am VERY hard on my nails. I
also have very thin natural nails but of course I adore having long length
-Do you have to use the acrylic?
I have been getting into gel and would love to use just gel. I got the Sina
gel system and I like and don't like it. I can def do it on my toe nails no
problem, but when it comes to using my less dominant hand to do my right
hand.... well, thats when I run into problems. Also If i Just use the gel
will it provide the strength I need?
-Also I live in Florida and I am a chronic lifter. I have done my own dip
acrylic nails in the past and I get so irritated. They turn out great but
start to lift 3 days after.
Thank you soooooo much!
beauty craze: I'm trying to let my own natural nails grow I have a routine I follow for
my nails and I have bought product to help them grow they are long like
yours maybe a bit shorter but now that I have my own nails I need to
strengthen them. I don't have the gel products could I use just regular
acrylic powder on my natural nails? I am just going to put some top coat
and the sprinkle the powder on would that be ok?
Joanna Cienfuegos: Am I able use use normal nail polish at all with these nails? If yes, would
I apply the nail design and or polish after I do the top coat or before the
top coat and after the 2nd layer of acrylic dip powder?
Arlene Shumaker: I broke off a small corner of my acryogel. My natural nail is still there.
Can you tell me how I would fix this?
AllieAlexandria: Hi Anna soo Ive been doing this process for about 2months now & my nails

Fanoulla Andreou: i couldnt found the powder u use but i found STAR NAIL AcryGel
Strengthening Powder Clear 1.6 oz can i use this one??
reo - julie: hi,do ya think that instead of the foundation gel that I could use say a
top coat I got from china the reason im asking that is because it leaves

katli sekganyeng: How to keep it natural...
Lovely Jenelle: How do you remove the acrygel?
StyleThose Nails: Nice tut thanks ...... Is this acrylic powder same as polymer acrylic
powders used normally ?
ashley f: I love your videos they are great! I love how you show the products and

lorraine ugbebor: hey anna,do you have to havlong nails to do acryGel for natural nails??
Janet Van Wyck: Anna what happens if you use a colour acrylic powder?
Mercedes Plunkett: Hey Anna. I've been trying to grow out my nails for years and they grow but
there so thin. I have been taking biotin and everything how can I grow them
without having to put anything on them?
bcheeks18: Ive been doing this on myself for a while now and I love it!! Even with
nail tips... But I started using this method on my friend and hers never
last, it breaks right at the nail tip never lifts from the cuticle ...what
could I be doing wrong? I do the same procedure on my nails and they last,
what should I do?
abawitx: Excellent tutorial. I will give this a try this week! Thanks for sharing.
charlotte seidenschnur: where can I have this done in Fort Myers, Florida?
Jazz J: What do u think about mixing a little acrylic powder with structure gel
liisuxyz: I love this video! Can I use any gel primer before the acrylic or does it
have to be this brand?
saRaHMcGee92: The only way acrylics or gels damage your nails is if incorrectly applied
(efile on natural nail) , incorrectly removing or if the client picks at
the nail. Nothing to do withh how long , also the ring of fire is created
due to friction caused by the file by over filing
Jazz J: Have you tried using it with the dual forms?? I did it turned out awsome i
did the same method i tried 2 layers of acrylic and gel on the dual forms
and one layer on natural nails i then sandwhich in between with gel when
putting dual forms on nails Can you please try it and if it becomes a
sucess do a review on it
Anita Okekpe: The powders u use are not available in the uk so please can I use this
Jazz J: Can i do this same method using the non soak off traditional gel
Kr15ta: I have done this after watching this very awesome video, I am now about to
do a refill and I have watched the refill clip but it still does not answer
my question. I painted my nails with gelish after I did the acrygel, now I
would like to do an infill an drepaint my nails, if I do the usual soak off
to remove the gelish polish, will it also remove the acrygel also? Im
guessing yes, if so, how do I remove just the gelish polish without
removing the acrygel layer (this has made my nails sssooo strong)
lady9903: Very pretty nails
Skram Amme: I love the idea of using a "gel wrap" type of procedure to strengthen my
nails (which are already long and almost too strong as they don't bend very
easily). But, I wear nail plish with high glitter content and have to
generally soak the polish off using cotton balls and foil with an acetone
based remover. Can I still do that with an acrygel wrap or will soaking off
the polish ruin the wrap? TIA for any help :)
LilaRox: Just wondering, You mention the regular hard gel saying you can do it that
way as well but you won’t be able to soak off, so my question is, Since I
would like to do this and just do refills BUT I want to change my polish
color/designs (SOG polish), if I did this process with the hard gel/acrylic
bonding powder THEN proceed as normal (SOG gelish foundation, color, top
coat), could I remove the SOG layers with the soak off process while
leaving the strengthen acrylgel layers so I could do a refill of the
strengthen process and follow with new colors and designs. I want to avoid
a complete re-do but have the ability to change color/designs.
Darlene LovingLifeAndMakeUp: How do I Soak off gel polish if I need to use acetone wont it take of my
acygel on my nails ??
MamaJack1: I did this application for my mother last night who has had acrylic nails
for 26 years. She loves it! I did cut her nails down, as she wore them
quite long, but she's really happy with the strength. I'm a nail tech and
would love to offer this where I work. I'm so glad I found this video!
Fania Andreou: i want to ask you about the powder. should i buy CND IBD or HARMONY powder.
What do u suggest? i only use gelish (foundation color and top it off) so
im thinking about harmony. i couldnt found the powder u use but i
found STAR NAIL AcryGel Strengthening Powder Clear 1.6 oz is this the same?
THANK YOU :)
missbindiboop: So, your putting gel on your nails, then sprinkling it with acrylic, then
curing it, then doing it again, then recommending soaking it off every
couple weeks. How is this better for your nails than gels or acrylic
overlay and a fill very 2 weeks?
melbeautynails: I want to try this
Dawn Ramsey: I am definitely going to give this a try thanks for your advice. ;-)
Michelle Bonnee: I have long natural nails that I don't like to have more than clear polish
on them. im looking to see if I can put gel on myself and not add length or
put color on, so gel looks really interesting to me. I have a light to cure
them. but question can I put just clear gel on them so they have a little
