I have asked a few geeks already what they think about this. I am trying to work on my Free Edge and am worried that these are too thin. They look thicker in the picture than they do when I look at them. i would say they are 1mm thick.

Any pointers?

They dont look too thin Rach but as you know I am no expert. How are they wearing cause I now you have had these on for a few days now.

I would have thought that you would make them as thin you can without causing any problems with the longivity. I also believe that as long as there is sufficient support in the apex and they show to last then they are fine.

I guess the proof will show next week if they are still in tact (which i think they will be). that is if you have got bored of them by that time and changed then to something else :lol: - like you do.

Gorgeous c-curve :D
I think it needs a tad more of an apex, it looks a little flat in the pic, but it could be the angle it was taken.

The thickness is fine Rach only thing I can pick out on the first picture is that you have your apex and then a slight dip, Build this up more for strength.:hug:

Your FE is perfect in my books.. for wearable nails (not comp nails) I always stick to Credit card thickness for the FE, never have probs with them, and I am super dooper hard on my nails.

Hi hun x

The FE looks perfect to me, credit card thickness is where I aim for and they look about that.

Apex could be a little more built up imo however, the overall appearance look gorgeous, love glitter tips.

I couldn't sculpt my own nails if my life depended on it! So well done for that!!!

Your apex looks pretty cool to me, just needs a wee bit of clear to fill the dip on your free edge and your free edge looks fine to me.
