Hi- is there a video or a really good tutorial about filing a lift in a gel fill without making it larger-- chasing it across the nail!! I thought I was doing OK filing in front of the lift but I'm doing something wrong??
Also After you get the lift off should you file the "ledge" down ? Maybe I'm not describing that correctly- a video would be helpful or picture tutorial!
Thanks!

I really suggest you both check out the "articles" section at the top of the forum...OR...the stickeys - the 3rd one tells you how to access all the tutorials and articles. The one I have linked below is taken from the one and only Gigi Rouse and her book "Nailclass", which I suggest you both buy. It is a fantastic wealth of techniques and tips!! HTH xxx

Gigi's nail class is a must. I have it close to hand and read it regularly. It's helped me so much and made my life as a nail tech so much easier.:biggrin:
