20 Acrylic Nail Ideas Worth Bringing to Your Next Appointment
My favorite thing about acrylic nails is also kinda my least favorite thing about acrylic nails: There are so many freaking design options to chose from that it can feel majorly overwhelming when it comes to finding inspo. Like, do you go super abstract with waves and swirls? Oooor do you lean into a trendier design, like cow print or flames? Throw that in with the fact that acrylics last a whopping 6-8 weeks, and you're in for a straight-up tough decision. Here's an idea though: Make your life 100x easier by scrolling through our list of the 20 coolest acrylic nail ideas before your appointment. Whether you're looking for Kylie Jenner-level designs or more lowkey and subtle options, you're basically guaranteed to find something you love, ahead.
Acrylic manicures, dip powder nails, and gel manicures are just a few of the artificial nails designs that women love. Acrylic nails are a form of fake nails that are beloved for their elegance and for how they transform a woman’s hands from boring to brilliant. For women who prefer longer lengths, long acrylic nails allow a woman to have nails that are not only gorgeous and something of envy, but that is also durable.
50 Reasons To Love The New Acrylic Nails
Acrylic nails are different from dip powder nails and nails created with gel. With dip powder, you place your nail in a powder and then seal the powder with a clear protective polish. A gel manicure is created from a gel substance that is cured under a UV light. However, acrylic nails are achieved through the use of mixing a monomer, which is a liquid, with a polymer, which is a powder. The mixture forms a sort of dough. The dough is then shaped on the nail through the use of a special brush. After the dough is transferred to the nail, it air dries into a form of plastic. Nail polish and designs associated with nail polish are then applied if desired.
Acrylic nails are popular not only for the way they look but also for how hard the nail becomes the chemical reaction process. They are strong and resilient nails that allow you take care of your everyday activities without fear of chipping or breakage. However, despite how strong acrylic nails are, they are easier to remove than gel nails.
Also, if you get acrylic nails done at a salon, which is the most popular way to get the manicure, generally they are cheaper than gel nails for either a full set or a refill. Women in the market for acrylic nails should find a salon that specializes in this form of artificial nails and that, therefore, knows how to apply acrylic nails and knows the difference between acrylic nails, gel nails and dip powder nails.

You'll want to make sure the design is one you love because these types of manicures are long-lasting. Acrylics tend to be harder than gel, nail artist Brittney Boyce previously told Allure. They're created by mixing a powder (polymer) — usually clear, but the powders come in a range of colors — and a liquid (monomer) into a dough-like consistency that can be filed and molded. From there, a talented nail artist can create whatever your imagination conjures.
And if you're worried about potential damage to your nails: don't be. The key to healthy nails with acrylics is proper removal with the right tools (like lots of acetone) and tons of time and patience. (This how-to guide has all the steps for at-home removal.) The right nail technician will be able to care for your natural nails regardless of whether you use acrylic powders, gel polishes, or gel extensions. So peruse this gallery full of acrylic manicures in square, stiletto, coffin, almond, and even lipstick shapes. We're sure that you'll be able to find exactly what you need for your next nail appointment.
