Hi geeks, attempted yesterday, for the first time, to elongate the nail bed which obviously requires a masque acrylic ( i used purely pink masque - nsi ) but as you can see ( in the picture below ) it doesent quite cover great. I know i need more practice etc but i still think i could use a better masqueing product if you have any suggestions . id like to stick to nsi as my nail liquid is by them
thankyou xx

The colour looks too cool for this client. Have you got a warmer pink or custom mix one?

the new Nsi rose is not too bad, i did give them a trial run just to see, but still i prefered the coverage of cnd. Don't forget you can add colours to warm or cool your powders, custom blend for clients. I don't but there are many that do.x make sure your not working too wet, or you will be able to see through as well as get service breakdown.xx

I use NSIs Purely Pink Masque - have you thought of trying to do a slightly drier ratio bead? Too much liquid sheers out the colour and this is apparent at the thinnest areas.

Hope this helps x

gemma lambert usually takes the liquid out the back of her brush to get a more opaque bead, perhaps you could try that?

I haven't used the masquerade powders yet from NSI but i have to say i do like the look of the rose one, think it looks a lot more natural that this pink.

Let us know what you get and how it works out because i'm not so happy with the color of purely pink masque either :D

When I used to use NSI I mixed around a little with their masque colour and added some from the technails collection, I'm sorry I can't remember recipes though.

I use nail harmony renew powder now for coverage, it matches most skin tones really well, I haven't had to tweak it for a client yet anyway, but if you do we have coloured powders too so you can get a perfect match.
