When doing L@P i rarely get that ball shape(you know when you dip your brush into the liquid then into the powder) mines looks more like a flatten ball! HELP!:eek:

I work with odorless acrylic and with my system (OPI Clarite) you have to work much drier. Maybe try a brush that holds less liquid. Of course follow the advice for your system, but it sounds like the bead (ball) of acrylic is too wet.:)

I think you may be right, the acrylic is too wet cos it just swims on the nail, gonna pratise making it a bit drier.

acrylic should not swim on the nail as it will touch the skin and cause lifting

maybe try a smaller brush
just what i was going to say...smaller brush less liquid bead wont be so wet ...


good luck with it all and keep practising hun xx

As long as your mix ratio is correct, it doesnt matter if its not a perfect ball shape, just practise your consistancy.
