Hi

Just a quick tip on creating perfect smile lines:
apply white to free edge as well as you can. wipe your brush and shape smile line from the cuticle end with the brush, removing any excess white.
Sometimes I apply a two thin coats in the same way rather than one thicker application.
does that make sense?
Once I started using this technique I found things much easier.
Hope this helps

Hi

Have you tried applying your white gel with a dotting tool?? Its really good for doing shortish nails and you only have to tidy slightly. Personally i find that MTW isnt flexible enough under biosculpture, and calgel is quite similar, and it chips off the ends. Persevere with your white gel you will get there honest.

I have just learnt to use the Calgel nail art brush to apply the white gel which is great as it goes on much thicker and where you want it. When you have placed the gel into its smile line then dip the brush into calguard and use it to do any tidying up needed.
