regular polish over acrylic nails? Please help!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I am at a total loss with nail polish / nail care topics. My nails are very very short, partially from breaking a lot due to my hobbies (lifting, gardening) and also because I'll just pull at them or bite them when nervous. 

Either way, here is my QUESTION:  Can I get acrylics put on at the nail salon, but a regular nail polish over them (a specific Essie color that I need)?

The reason I am asking is because I am a bridesmaid in an upcoming wedding... it is going to be a very important time for my family. The bride has requested we wear a specific shade of Essie polish. I could easily just paint my stubby little nails that color, but I REALLY want to have everything tip top. I was thinking of getting acrylics put on, but would need this Essie color on the nails. 

 

I looked around online and found a lot of posts of how to *change* the color of your acrylic nails, which I could do too.... but if getting them with Essie in the first place is possible I'd rather just do that and then if I want to change them later to something else after the wedding. 

 

Please post any comments and advice!!!! Thank you all!

That's not a problem. They'll just paint the acrylics with your Essie polish then put a UV top coat on last. I've had this done before and researched threads online to confirm. You can youtube or google "acrylic nails with regular nail polish" and tons of stuff comes up. Good luck! :)

I also had a similar situation with my fingernails. I found advice here https://naildesignsjournal.com/. In one of the articles section, "Polish" (title, unfortunately, I don't remember) found the answer to my question. By the way, since then I often address him, for advice, then for new ideas)))

You should consider reading this article. it helped me to make a choice. It's very insightful and helpful article. I've chosen acrylics for myself because they last longer than two weeks and may even last up to a month with proper maintenance. Hope it helps!

    • I'mcurrently trying some salon here in California I still can't decide which is my favorite.
    • I used to use toners, but many are too harsh and have lots of chemicals that end up irritating acne more than the salicylic acid or whatever is helping. I like witch hazel, though. It's super mild.
    • If you can't live with it.. get plastic surgery. If you don't get plastic surgery you can obviously live with it.
    • Summer is the season where you can enjoy outdoors and soak up some sun. However, the heat often damages the skin, making it look dull and tanned. Therefore, you should take special care of your skin during this season. So, if you're wondering how to get glowing skin this summer, here's what you must note. Steam Therapy: Steaming is one of the best ways to get fresh, glowing skin as it opens clogged pores and removes the dirt from the skin. Thus, making it softer and clearer.Ensure you do it at lease once a week to get good results. Stay Hydrated: If you want to have glowing skin during the summers, it's important to stay hydrated always. Keep in mind that dehydration damages the skin, making it look dull and strained. Therefore, drink a lot of water. You could also add some fresh juices and fruits to your diet that would not only eliminate toxins but also contribute to the nutritional aspect. Have a Healthy Diet: What you eat, reflects on your face. Therefore, it's important to be careful of what you eat, particularly during the summer. It's advisable to include green vegetables and lettuce, and water content fruits such as watermelon, oranges, lemon and cucumber in your diet as they provide good amounts of nutrients and antioxidants, also keeping you hydrated. So, now that you know how to get glowing skin, which one will you try? 
    • Try oiling your hair atleast two times a day using a good ayurvedic oil. Many a times premature hairfall can be arrested by simple care. Also don't use commercially available shampoos as most of them are quite harsh. Go for a herbal hair wash powder instead.
