    white tips

    Actually, they were not bulky at all. The red tip is actually very thin. I really did not like the red tips and I had stop using them since they were so thin. That is when I decided to place them together (the red tip and white tip) and I like the way they looked together. I got those red tips...

    white tips

    I have those white tips with hearts cut out but I have to say that I have never tried them with gel. What I did for Valentines Day is that I glued a red tip and on top of it I glued the white tips with hearts cut out. Then I overlayed it with acrylic. This is what I got...

    How long did it take when you started???

    It's true, I think that it is better to take your time and do the set well then to do the set fast and have complaints later. When I first started it took me 2 hours and a half to finish a new set. Now, I take 1 hour to do a set of tips and overlay, 1 hour and 1/2 for colored acrylic. With time...

    What do you use to soak off enhancements?

    I use pure acetone and I pour it in a glass bowl with marbles. I find that using the marbles helps in removing the product plus my clients can have some fun while they soak. Nidia

    Dollarbill Nails

    Sorry I took so long to respond but this is how I did it. I measured all her nails and set aside the nails that I would be using. (I used a clear tip.) Then she gave me one of her dollarbills and I cut it to fit the clear tips in a way that will give it a french look. I then glued them on, cut...

    I also heard about those nail tips that have stars cut out. I bought the star "Punch It" from Transdesign and I cut some french white tips into a chevron tip and punched out the star, then glued the tip and applied a piece of tape underneath the tip and this is what turned out...
