you need to blend all the product down thin and then do the coloured over the top like you would normally do a white tip powder overlay, does that help? probably not i'm alittle tired now sorry lol

To do colord acyrilc, do it just as you would for a pink and white rebalance, just think as the colored acryilc is like the white. File the white down 80-90% and put your smile line on then do your pink. That simple. Good luck

Even when I use white tips I apply white product over it as this gives better coverage and still lets you do the smile line. Also this gives you the start of your apex as the white is slightly higher at the zone 2 edge. Then apply your zone 2 product, butting it up the the white not pulling it over.
Just the same as any Forever French overlay really. HTH

Must admit I am totally confused.....can we start again?:)

What is it your client actually wants.

I have taken it that she is having white tips and then radiant pink on zones 2 &3. which I think could be wrong....I don't feel so bad though as Kirsty seems to have thought you were doing a rebalance :lol:

I think now you are saying the radiant pink is going on the white tip??

I kind of don't understand that as if I was doing a colour on a tip I would use a clear tip then you could see the colour from both sides.
At the very least I would use a natural tip. It seems a bit daft to cover a white tip with a colour, when all white tips are meant for is a French manicure look.

Feel free to correct my thinking though.:smack:

Apologies if I have picked you up wrong again :o it is Friday !!!
