Can You Put Acrylic Nails Over Nail Polish?

Written by Tara

When applying acrylic nails it is important that the natural nail is clean and dry, with polish removed first. However, if you are just applying the acrylic paint over your nail to strengthen the natural nail, you can add a thin layer of the acrylic substance over the polish.

Yes, you can! Although there are quite a few harsh chemicals in nail polishes (you can smell them as soon as you open the bottle), none of them will interact with the acrylic if there is a top coat over it. If there’s no top coat, you might damage the underneath acrylic and cause weird-looking lumps in the nail.

Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)

Can you paint nail tips before applying acrylic?

Painting press-on fingernails is a great way to express your style without having to groom and grow out your natural nails. You can add polish to press-on nails before applying them to your nails using some tape and a cotton swab, or easily paint press-on nails once they’re already adhered to your fingernails.

How do you cover nail polish for work?

First, use a cotton swab to rub petroleum jelly (like Vaseline) on your cuticles and the skin around your nails to create a barrier between the polish and your skin. After you’ve painted your nails, you can wipe off the petroleum jelly and any polish mistakes along with it.

Why do my acrylic nails keep popping off?

Acrylic nails keep popping off prematurely because of many different factors. Still, they can be grouped into four main areas: nail preparation, natural nail conditions, the acrylics themselves, and how they are applied. Let look into detail how each of these areas causes the acrylic nails to pop off before their time.

Do fake nails need base coat?

You can apply gel polish to acrylic nails the same way that you would to your natural nail, using the steps outlined above. An acrylic-compatible base coat is necessary to ensure that you do not accidentally stain your acrylics.
