About Acrylic Nail Kits No matter how hard you try to grow your own nails, you cannot get a good length before you start biting them off. With acrylic nail kits, you can get a professional-style manicure at home to add length and strength to your nails. Full nail kits contain everything you need to complete your manicure, including the acrylic powder, acrylic liquid, nail tips, brushes, dappen dish, clippers, and glue. If you are new to applying your own acrylic nails, a starter kit may be a better choice for you. These kits still include everything you need to complete your manicure, including the tips, brushes, powder, and liquid, but at a smaller scale than the regular sets. Acrylic nail kits are a good option for performing manicures at homes, as acrylics harden when exposed to air, so you do not need a UV light like you would with gel nail kits. It makes for a simpler application. Both regular and beginner kits are available from sellers on eBay for the at-home manicurist.
