Acrylic nails – and consequently acrylic powders – have been around much longer than gel nails, but that does not, under any circumstances, mean that acrylic nails are outdated or that gel nails are better than acrylic nails.
Whether you choose an acrylic powder or a builder gel as ground zero for the nail enhancements you sculpt is a matter of personal preference and mainly depends on the look you’re aiming to achieve. You have to, of course, take other factors into account – such as the sensitivity of your or your client’s nail bed -, but those are subjects for another day. Crystal Nails Acrylic Powders are developed in close cooperation with champion nail technicians, and in light of their delicate manufacturing process and the years of hard work Crystal Nails has put into perfecting them, they are feats of chemical engineering. Facilitating the application of acrylic powders (also known as acrylic polymers) are acrylic monomers, while hassle-free and gentle product removal is ensured by the Acryl Remover liquid, which contains lanolin to protect the nails and the skin. The biggest upside of acrylic nails is that they are extremely durable, although the fact that they are rather easy to fix is not lagging far behind as it pertains to the most noteworthy advantages of acrylic nails. The Crystal Nails Acrylic System is made up of six product lines: Master Powders, Cover Pink Powders, Slower Powders, Easy Powders, Color Powders, and Liquids and Monomers. For sculpting acrylic nails, we recommend Acrylic Sculpting Brushes, while creating acrylic nail art masterpieces call for Acrylic Nail Art Brushes.
Master Powders – A masterclass in acrylic sculpting
The Master Acrylic Powder product line consists of seven acrylic powders, covering all aspects of the acrylic nail sculpting process from creating bright white French free edges to enhancing the nail bed. Crystal Nails Acrylic Master Powders contain a non-yellowing formula, speed up your workflow with super-fast curing, and have a creamy consistency, ensuring easy application and spreading.
Cover Pink Powders – The power of pink
Crystal Nails Cover Pink Powders are available in six distinctive different shades of pink, ensuring that you’ll be able to sculpt matching acrylic nails for any skin tone. Cover Pink Acrylic Powders are mainly used for creating acrylic nail bed extensions and for hiding regrowth. For perfect coverage, apply Cover Pink Acrylic Powders in a thicker layer along the smile line, gradually thinning the acrylic towards the cuticles.
Acrylic Slower Powders – Good work takes time
Often denoted as the acrylic powders tailor-made for acrylic nail sculpting newbies – also known as beginner nail technicians -, Acrylic Slower Powders bring you conveniently slow curing, ensuring that you can work on your acrylic nail art masterpieces for an extended period of time. Acrylic Slower Powders are available in three colorways – clear, white, pink – and in odorless versions. Each acrylic powder has a creamy consistency, and comes equipped with a non-yellowing formula.
Easy Acrylic Powders – Take it easy!
With Crystal Nails Easy Powders, filing acrylic nails becomes a breeze! Available in four colorways, Clear+, Pink+, White+, and Cover+, Easy Powders contain significantly smaller grains than other acrylic powders, allowing for the aforementioned easy filing. White+ and Cover+ cure slower and are ideal for creating French nails and for working on the smile line area, while the Clear+ and Pink+ colorways cure faster.
Acrylic Color Powders – All the colors of the rainbow
Unleash your acrylic nail sculpting creativity with Acrylic Color Powders! Highly pigmented Crystal Nails Acrylic Color Powders bring you more than 15 dazzling special effects –including the jaw-dropping thermosensitive Chameleon Acrylic Powders – in over 300 intense colorways. Acrylic Color Powders are tailor-made for realizing all your acrylic nail art visions, whether it’s a sparkling spectacle or a delicate 3D design with carefully constructed details.
Liquids and Acrylic Monomers – For a perfect start and an easy finish
This product line is made up of six liquids and acrylic monomers, each of them essential to the acrylic nail sculpting process. The three acrylic monomers – Odorless Liquid, UV Liquid, and Crystal Liquid – are the liquid components in Crystal Nails’ Acrylic System, facilitating the adhesion and application of acrylic powders. The Acryl Remover ensures easy product removal, the UV Filter safeguards acrylic nails against sunlight and the ultraviolet light of tanning beds – and also provides a lustrous shine -, while the No Line liquid comes in handy for doing acrylic refills.
