I have to tell you all that they are all down to a GREAT teacher and a very special friend Ruth Fordham (Nailsinlondon1) who has put herself out to train me and dawnie and give us all the help and support we need

Thank You ruth you are a very special person i couldn't do this without you

As Caroline is using the Fabric# system, she is also using white tips.........
pre-blended the french tips and butted them onto the free edge...........

pre-blending takes the grey looking shadow away and gives it the sculptured tip appearance...............
It defines the smile line.........
A must if you want to create a nice look when using french tips in a salon or in a competition...............:)

They are gorgeous. Competing is something that I aspire to - but have a long way to go yet! Seeing photographs like yours and Ruth's are an inspiration to new techs like myself.

Good luck to you in the competition season.

Many thanks

It's the same method you would use on a normal tip........
File the contact area, the well bit out of it..............or use a nice sharp pair of little curved scissors and cut out the well area........this will enhance the smile line...........

hi ruth - happy new year.
now i thought that you didnt have to preblend a french tip (i do end up with a big lip and even after the application of boost first to smooth the lip i stiil get air bubbles etc and then a funny gap when applying the fabric... ) how do you preblend a french tipwithout 'fuzzing up' the crisp smile line.
cheers
