Fingernails take a beating, so use acrylic powder blended with a polymer to make artificial tips. Salon technicians and do-it-yourselfers combine the ingredients while applying the mixture to the nails, since the substance hardens immediately to form a strong bond.

Purchase clear, coloured, or acrylic powder which contains glitter. Learn to work in the solution outward from the bottoms to the tips of the nails. Remove the treatment by soaking nails in acetone while in a ventilated area.
