Acrylic Nail Supplies Guide

If you're venturing into the world of acrylic nails, or even if you're a seasoned pro looking to refine your kit, you're in the right place. Today, we're diving into the essential supplies from Glitterbels, a brand that's become synonymous with quality and innovation in the nail art community (and now shipping on both sides of the Atlantic.) Regardless of the size of your salon understanding what each product does and how it contributes to the perfect set of acrylic nails is key. So, let’s break down these must-haves and discover how they can elevate your acrylic nail game.

Acrylics (Core Powder and Acrylic Powders):

These are the foundational elements for creating acrylic nails. Core powder is used to build the nail structure, providing strength and durability. Whereas acrylic powders are lighter, finer, and generally lighter in colour. Glitterbels offers a variety of acrylic powders in different colours and finishes, allowing for creative and customised nail designs, every time. The powders are mixed with liquid monomer to form a mouldable bead that can be sculpted into the desired nail shape.


This category encompasses various products essential for acrylic nail application, such as nail dehydrators, primers, and finishing sprays. As you might suspect these products are essential ingredients in creating perfect acrylic nails, every time. Our essential items help prepare the nail surface for acrylic application, ensuring better adhesion and a long-lasting finish.

Prep and Finish Products:

These include items necessary for preparing the nails before application and finishing them after the acrylics are applied. Products like nail cleansers, dehydrators, primers, and top coats fall into this category. They ensure that the nail surface is optimally prepared for acrylic application and that the final result is glossy and protected.

Cuticle Oils:

Essential for maintaining healthy nails and cuticles, these oils hydrate and nourish the skin around the nails. Regular application of cuticle oil can improve the appearance of cuticles and prevent hangnails and skin peeling.


A critical tool for any nail technician, brushes are used for applying and sculpting acrylics. Glitterbels offers a range of brushes, including round and flat options. Round brushes are ideal for detailed work and maintaining the right liquid-to-powder ratio, while flat brushes are easier to use for applying acrylic along the length of the nail.

Nail Files:

These are used for shaping and smoothing the nails before and after the application of acrylics. Glitterbels provides various grits and types of nail files to suit different stages of the nail preparation and finishing process.

Nail Tips:

Applied to natural nails, these tips act as a template for acrylic application, helping to create a uniform and desired nail shape. Glitterbels offers nail tips in various sizes and styles to match different nail shapes and preferences.


This liquid is mixed with acrylic powder to create the acrylic bead that is then applied to the nails. The monomer ensures smooth application and optimal adhesion of the acrylic to the natural nail.
