Hi Everyone, Im a beginner with about 50 full set acrylics under my belt, & have only recently found this amazing site, but the more I read Iv realised that I may not have been taught in the correct way. Could someone please please help!!! Finishing off - Iv been taught after applying product ,to file off with 100 grit abrasive, then white block, then buff nail to a shine, then last stage is to apply solaroil and massage in. Finished! Is that right????? Please can all you talented geeks tell me your finishing off routine. Ahh nearly forgot!! Just read File grip tutorial, I hold my file at one end with my thumb on top, but would like to retrain myself to hold it in the way the tutorial shows, handshake grip with index finger on top. Do you use this grip when filing all areas on the nail - both side walls, apex etc?? Someone please enlighten me!! Apologies for so many questions, but keep losing my threads, he he. Many Thanks, Sarah.
