HI,
Thanks for the info. I looked on the site but couldn't find them. Is Antony with EZ Flow? If he is I met him at the show. EZ Flow had them at their booth, but the lady was rude when I asked about them. He probably would know. Thanks!

OOPS! ...sorry thought Id seen 'em in the 'accessories' section there.
Yup, Antony is Ez Flows 'grand master' ... he'll definately know what you're talking about! (he uses 'em).
Send him a PM, he's definately not rude ... he's lovely ;)

Excuse my ignorance, but how do you use metal rods to help with doing the c curve??

Hiya,
Do you know about pinching?
You do this to 'bring in' where zone 1 and 2 meet .. you know, it sometimes looks a bit wide just there?
Well pinching, sort of streamlines the enhancement a little.
You can damage the natural nails if you overpinch (too much pressure).
So, when you first start doing this, its best to use your thumb nails so that you get the 'feel' for the right amount of pressure to use.
Once youre used to it you can then move on to the 'pinching irons'.
Hope this helps a bit .. not very good at explaining, lol!

Ant is a gent and I am sure that he will point you in the right direction :biggrin:
Also it is ok to use the end of your acrylic brush to create a c curve

No, I don't think he is. He has an english accent. Doesn't look Italian to me.
