    Apply a little glue on the tip of  your natural nail and then attach the acrylic nail to it. Hold the acrylic nail for a while till it is attached firmly to your natural nail. You may apply more glue to the end of the acrylic nail so that it firmly attaches with your natural nail. Keep it pressed for sometime and then repeat the process for other nails.
