MissyJoci - how long have you been doing this? Have you trained? Just trying to get a picture of where you're at! My son goes to school in Harrogate!!!
We do indeed although I think they will be updated!!!! Thanks beautyxperts.You mention it looks "dusty" - is that once you have mixed your l&p? It could possibly be your mix ratio, hence it not looking clear. Practice your mix ratio - Candy86 above has mention some sheets to use to do this, I remember using these sheets years ago at the creative academy - not sure if S2 still have these? X
I still to this date cannot always create an acrylic enhancement using the 3 ball method. I know what my objective is the shape and length of the nail Im going to sculpt and depending on the size of the nail plate as to how I will apply the acrylic. I don't believe there is a right or wrong way, it is whatever works for you. Practice your bead consistency, the size of the brush and the amount of liquid left in the brush will determine how much acrylic you will pickup. The acrylic nail needs to be flush at the base of the nail near the (PNF also known as the cuticle) with the thickness build hip at the stress area tapering out to a very thin edge. The 'C' and shape will give the acrylic nail its strength. GOOD LUCK and don't give up there's some videos on U tube as I seen others also mention this .
