This is my first attempt at the inverted nail application using glitter mixed with clear gel and sculpting pink

once the tip was placed and cured all i did was refine the shape of the free edge nothing else was touched with the file

all i can say is wow wow wow i love it and will now apply to the rest of my nails:):)

looks pretty.

so have you left the tip in place, or have you used the removable mould thingy ?

it will be really interesting to see how long they last.

Cool...it looks absolutely fab.....let us know about the longevity of it....so I am guessing you bought some of these moulds?

Did it take you long to do the one nail?

So did you apply the tip as normal or put the product on the underside of the tip and then apply over the whole nail?....did the product not stick to the tip?.....these things are confusing me now! lol

they are good aren't they !

I to am looking forward to how the last ie lifting etc, but guess the pressure you apply when putting the product on is far great than what we can achieve with a brush

my brain is unable to compute! Think I need to see how you do it lol! So do you put the design on the inside of the tip, place it on the whole nail and cure? I'm repeating myself now but I don't get it lol!

I am not convinced still atm how do you build a nice apex and what about air bubbles getting trapped under the tip ?

So did you file the end of the tip round to do zone 3?

What about applying a bonding layer of gel? I probably would've done that, so it'll be interesting to see how they hold up without it.

I really want to try it, but I've got some lovely glitter fades on at the moment that I'm not ready to part with. Hmmm no guinea pig in sight.

btw- They look great. The only thing I would say is the lower arch looks a little rough.

Thanks a lot for being the pioneer when i comes to the inverted nail art! :hug:
It,s really cool that you shared it with us!
It does look very easy to use... i am tempted to go and buy them myself and have a play with it aswell. The proces looks fun to apply them. Can i only ask how much they cost?

Thanks again for sharing and the step-by-step pictures!!!
