Hi
I had a friend come to me the other day who wanted nail extensions, I had a problem cause some of her nails at the free edge were dented especially in the middle. When trying to put clear tips on they would adhere at the sides of the nail but not in the middle creating an air bubble.

Any advise on this would be brill.

My advice on this would be to use pink gelbond. It fills in any gaps - great for nail biters.

Sorry Shelley, gel bond is an adhesive, you use it when fitting your tips then overlay with your L&P as normal. Gelbond is a Creative Nail Design product. There are other Jelly adhesives available.

This is one of those naff off situations - Never Assume - Find Out First LOL

I am sorry, I assumed.

Hope this helps.

Hi
No probs
Thanks alot i'll have a look round for the product and give it a try.

I presume the creative nail design products you can only get if you've been trained by them?

Shelly..if you can't get to a One Stop Nail Shop, then Dennis Williams and Sallies both sell a simliar product under the Star Nails range..which might help in the interim... :)
