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
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 :)
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.
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.
melbeautynails: I want to try this
StyleThose Nails: Nice tut thanks ...... Is this acrylic powder same as polymer acrylic
powders used normally ?
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.
Obsidian Queen: I was looking in a nail supply catalog & they had a line of products that
combined acrylic & gel & this blew me away..haha. Now,i see your vid here
showing how to do it! Wow! great tutorial, as always
Darlene LovingLifeAndMakeUp: How do I Soak off gel polish if I need to use acetone wont it take of my
acygel on my nails ??
Amber-Nicole Meadows: I want to try this. I am au naturale and don't want to compromise that too
much! But my nails won't stop chipping and spliting and breaking! Even with
taking daily vitamins! They grow and then break! I was going to try a gel
overlay but idk after seeing this I might go this route! I do have a
question though... I am really into nail art and I want to know can I apply
a regular nail polish over this, do my design (gems, beads or whatever) and
then use a UV gel top coat to seal it all in? Or what do you recommend? And
how would you do a french manicure with this method?
Lovingdeenaturally: Hi Anna! I've been watching ur gel nail tutorial vids over and over trying
to decide on the best "strengthening" technique for my nails and I have
another question for u. Which did u find gave more strength to nails, the
gelish foundation+acrylic powder or gelish structure gel by itself w/o the
Sylvia Nater: I love the idea of doing this myself, seeing I've been paying ppl to do it
for me for years. I looked everywhere before asking this question, but I'd
like to try the products that i am able to soak off. What are the exact
items I need to buy to complete a set?
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?
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.
Merle Bouffard: Hi Anna
I tried the Gelish PH Bond, then Gelish Foundation, then Star Nail So Fine
Acrylic. I have a Philips GoLite. It's supposed to be a UV light. But this
product never dries. I was able to wipe it off soft the next day. What am I
doing wrong? Is it the light?
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??
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

Dawn Ramsey: I am definitely going to give this a try thanks for your advice. ;-)
abawitx: Excellent tutorial. I will give this a try this week! Thanks for sharing.
Stephsgotit: Awesome, glad i found your channel. I want to wear my nails but they are
toi thin and won't hold polish over few hours so i def want to give this a
try. Thank you for another option!!!
Jazz J: Can i do this same method using the non soak off traditional gel
lorraine ugbebor: hey anna,do you have to havlong nails to do acryGel for natural nails??
ashley f: I love your videos they are great! I love how you show the products and
compare to see what works best, thanks!
Ten Little Canvases: Thanks so much for this video...I use this to help grow out splits, tears
and breaks. I actually had my nail tip tear completely rip off and after
using a silk patch and super glue to reattach and 2 layers of AcryGel, I
was able to grow it completely out, it gives the added strength I need to
avoid cutting my nails down. I use CND Retention+Powder and Gelish base
with good success. And it takes only about 5 minutes more to soak off. Best
discovery after gel polish itself :D.
Janet Van Wyck: Anna what happens if you use a colour acrylic powder?
crownail's: Ur so amazing great work, I love the way u explain the tutorial just live
Dorin Lahdo: After you do the the foundation and powder steps,can you then add color to
the nail if you please? Or would that to be too thick and cause it to peel
Leslie Rogel: I just started using lechat gel powder system on my natural nails... I use
the primer like it is directed in their video and I cap the free edge, but
it seems that within hours if I start doing house work or washing dished
there's lifting and chipping... I cure for 5 minutes. I have no idea what
I'm doing wrong.
maria piperi: ok thats great! i only new classic gel and acrylic techs,but never thought
to combine them! i just have a question, does it stay on as long as the
others do,or does it tend to peel of?!
Nathalie Breault: thank you for this video. I just did mine the way you did it in your
video. What a great idea. thank you so much
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
Anita Okekpe: The powders u use are not available in the uk so please can I use this
Sandra Streifel: Thank-you, I'd love to grow my nails this way.
gail jones: Glad i found this- i have natural nails and they need protecting and i was
told to try this a long time ago so i will.
Jazz J: What do u think about mixing a little acrylic powder with structure gel
Ariane LHappy: Hey!! Awesome video! One quick question though: would this method still
work with the CND shellac base coat (instead of Gelish Foundation)? I have
the shellac kit at home and don't want to have to go out and spend more
money on the Gelish brand...
Monica Salazar: LOVE YOUR VIDEO I REALLY WANT TO TRY THIS MY QUESTION TO YOU IS AFTER YOUR
DONE APPLYING THE LAST COAT OF GELISH FOUNDATION AND POWDER CAN I APPLY
GELISH COLOR AND THEN THE TOP COAT??
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!
lovet210: Hey I love you videos, there very helpful! I learned about the A.S.P.
Lightless gel resin from you. I was using that for a while, but when you
grow your nails out that becomes a bit overwhelming to continually do. This
I find is a great method I cant wait to try. The question i have for you is
can you use gel polish with this method? Would you put it before the top
coat of uv, or the polish portion is after sealing/hardening the nail/ what
about glitter acrylic, would you be able to do something like that with
this method of preserving your nails? Sorry if these are dumb questions,
just thought i'd ask. Thanks again enjoy your day!
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?
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
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?
charlotte seidenschnur: where can I have this done in Fort Myers, Florida?
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.
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 :)
Carla Jankielsohn: it doesn't have to be one or the other. The gel and acrylic powder work
really well together and it last longer. Put the gel on, under the LED lamp
until tacky, dip nail in acrylic powder, put gel on again and under LED
lamp again until dry. I do this method 2 or 3 times and it last longer. I
do this with tips.
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)
foxyladygb00: Just finished watching the video & I'm about to try this method. My only
question is can I incorporate regular nail polish or do you have to use the
Thanks for the AWESOME videos!!!
