Hi

Need your help again. :D

I'm getting confused on where my apex should be. I was taught that in zone 1 your brush tip needs to be up at an angle of 45 degrees, zone 2 flat and in zone 3 tip done at an angle of 45 degrees. This places the emphasis of the apex on the smile line, but when I have had nails done it has always been short of in the middle of the total length of the enhancement?

God, I'm not very good at explaining myself! :oops:

Hope you guys can help, again :D

Your brush angles sound right. The Apex is an area half way between your eponychium line and your extension edge. THis are is generally level with Zone 3 and Zone 1 building up to it.

Most mistakenly place it at the smile line which results in a thick and top heavy enhancement.

Hope this helps
