Been reading through old threads today and noticed on a few threads that some people when doing P&W apply the white to all the nails first and then do the pink. I trained to do each nail at a time, so just wondered how many of you do the white first then the pink.
Would have started a poll but couldn't find how to do it.

I normally do the pink first, then the white, i find it easier to create the smile this way, I would do the pink and white on each finger and once 5 were done I would do the clear then the same with the other hand.

I do reverse application so after my prep i put my forms on (10mins)
I start to acrylic my pinks one after another until all 10 are done, then I do all the whites.
It is quicker as you are not waiting for drying or swapping and changing around.:green:

PREP
Forms on the 4 fingers of one hand
Apply each nail in full.. white then pink...
then do the other fingers on the other hand
then do the thumbs last..

my ladys all need to have a hand free at any one time so they can answer their cells lol

This might sound silly question but how do you do pinks first? How do u not go over the area you will be putting the smile.

I do all my white first then my pink......I find that I get my smiles better by doing it this way..........

I was taught to do my white first then the pink on each finger then move on .......

but found through experience that doing all 10 of my white first then going back and doing my pink was working a whole lot faster for me personally.....
