Hi geeks, Ive just completed my second set of Acrylic nails. I trained with The Edge and I'm now improving the skills on friends and family so would really appreciate the feedback. I know there are tons of posts by people wanting feedback on there nails but I'm really enjoying it and excited to keep trying new things.
On this set I used The Edge Active tips overlayed with white and pink acrylic. This was my first attempt at creating the smile line myself and it was a bit fiddly.

I know the pictures arent very close up and dont show different angles so could anybody just comment on what ive got to show..... Thanks everyone

Hi

I won't advise on your nails as I don't feel I'm qualified enough to being a newbie myself. Just wanted to say well done for posting. It takes guts to get your work critiqued.

I'm sure someone will be along to give you some advice. Xx

Please don't take this the wrong way but as I'm a relative newbie, if you were to tell me I would definitely get lifting from the edges, I would respectfully at least want to know why?

Hi zeroprojection, a couple of things. First, well done for posting. Second, I think the nails are too long. When you have someone with very short nails, they may have a difficult time adjusting to the length, thus causing lifting.

Third, it's difficult to see much detail from the pics but use your 'line of light' for a nice, smooth finish to your nails.

I think you are off to a great start. :)

You're not being dim!

Look at the nail under your table lamp. Move the nail from side to side and from free edge to eponychium. The reflection from the lamp should be a straight line. If the line is not straight or it's wavy, you have more finish filing to do. HTH! :)

You are never ever dim ok. You are learning and if you don't ask then you don't learn.

I can't comment from pictures but if you ever need any advice just send me a message and I will help to the best of my ability. :D. Xxxxx
