do you use a white powder or gel over the white tips or do you use the white tips on their own?

Have you spoken to Star Nails supplier and asked them what they will be supplying instead of these tips?Quite often they discontinue a range only to bring out a superior but similar range,that's my experiance with manufacturers/suppliers anyway.HTH

they are bringing a new tip out to replace french curvation...called....wait for it...french perfection! the smile lines are very deep (a wee bit too deep in my opinion) but have a look at the warehouse next time you are up there..infact if u type in french perfection in search i'm sure someone did a nice set and took photos. so you could see the piccys on here. hth! xx

I use ibd gel, if you get your nail products through grafton they do the ibd white french tips. I like them as they have no well so you get a perfect smile line L x

I would personally say, to save you time when your clients come back in for thier infills / rebalances - learn to do a gorge pink and white enhancement!! :green:

Hope that link is ok, I've only just started doing links lol

But this is a good one that will explain just what you need to do when a client returns with the white tip well grown out. It is pretty skilled and I think we're all rubbish at it at first but it soon comes with practice:hug:

Nothing wrong with using French tips though, till you feel confident doing the tip with white acrylic (referred to as pink and whites or p&w, because you use a pink and a white acrylic to create the French look). I've used the Nailorder tips quite a bit, they are actually surprisingly good. hth x
