Nail forms can be used to create a set of salon-worthy acrylic nails at home. These adhesive stickers are applied to the nail bed and can be tailored to fit any nail shape to help you sculpt acrylic tips. To use, simply peel away the backing and poke out the center of the form. Then, place the removed center on the back of the form to give it more support. From there, pinch together the corners to form a curve that roughly matches the curve of your natural nail. The folded back end of the form should be wrapped around the finger and beneath the natural nail. securely to achieve a tight fit. Once you’ve sculpted your tip and it’s cured, you can peel away the form without it damaging your nails. Ahead, take a look at some of the best nail forms we found. They’re all traditional horseshoe-shaped nail forms that are ideal for beginners.
