Hello the lovely kirsty! these look fab seems like you picked up loads a tips re sculpting gel the other week well done xx there are two things that shout out to me one is the middle finger free edge is going off at an angle two there is a hole in the side wall that needs filling with gel then filing. They look lovely and thin at the free edge and your apex is fab well done you.

You know that the sculpting comp is mixed l&p and gel so may be you could try a set of sculpted l&p and see which comes out better and which you feel more comfortable working with hths you xxxx

As Tricky said there are very few entries in the sculpting competition with gels....a geeky friend of mine who always sculpts gel in the office told me that she could never compete with gel in the sculpt competition as gel can't really compete with l/p in terms of thinness of product, c curve (can't pinch it) and arch location.....but why not push the boat out and see if you can change the school of thought on this.

I found it really easy to pinch gel i didn't want to pinch too much as i was scraed it would just snap lol just played around and found a couple of techniques to do when pinching so i'm gonna time myself next time see how long it takes xx

very nice smile lines!!!:green:
only thing i noticed was the sidewalls aren't completely smooth. Don't know if it's just the camera angle, might just be me being picky! :lol:

wow and wow gwad I wish i had your drive !!!!

as you know I've never looked at the comp thing far to crap and scared lol
but these look fabo xx well done on being able to pinch, I've tried it and ended up in a terrible mess, the smiles c curve and line of light all look spot on the only thing I would look at if I was you are your side walls, as some of them look VERY slightly bulky by looking at the lower arch I think you'd be able to thin them down a little xx hope you don't mind me saying xx

wonderful nails and why I'm never going to be good enough !!

Hi kirsty,

I think that they really look fabulous!
May i ask how you pinched the gel nails? they look reaaaaaally good :eek:
Do you put them in for a few sec. and then pinch the curve in or how?
I am really curious...

im not sure why you would think that some of us would laugh as there gorgeous.your smile lines look fab.i know what you mean by that you find it easier with gel as you have more playing time,as ive found the same.i find doing my whites with gel alot easier with gel than acrylic even though i have much more experience with acrylic.good luck for the comps im sure you'll do fine.
