Hello All, I am using velocity tips and after I have applied the tip and blended it in, I am finding that some of the tips are falling off. Would I be overblending or not enough gelbond. My concern is that if I dont blend the tip in then I seem to get ghosting ( Yikes, I think thats the term used). Thanx

Chances are that you are getting too many airbubbles in your application. When you file into them, there is nothing left to hold the tip on AND/OR not butting the stop point up against the free edge of the nail plate.
Somtimes, people will over angle and the stop point will end up sitting on top of the natural nail, creating a ski jump nail as well as a void. This makes it darn near impossible to blend in and chances are you will lose the tip in the process.

Hope this helps.
