Prep is so hard and so important with a deep sidewall. As us ensuring you change your 'angles'

Ensure to pull the skin fold right back to remove all cuticle. Use a thin board (240) grit and use it on it's side like a pencil to really get deep down there to remove all traces of shine.

Then during application make sure you roll the finger over and angle your brush more than normal to make a solid contact with the plate.

Finally during shaping make sure you really get back into the sides to make the product flush and blended. But if the nail is square ( when looking up the c curve) be careful not to file to much into the side of the apex or you will weaken the structure...

Had this problem myself last week & have emptied my soul on my group page Bio Sculpture :Scared: ...

Since I have only ever used Bio Sculpture tips this has left me a complete novice when it comes to tips so I am told there are specialised tips out there that are designed for those who have especially deep apex's. Putting normal tips on there is too much resistance & lifts are going to occur...:rolleyes:

My lady not only had deep side walls but her front free edge had such a down sliding ski slope, that whenever I applied the tip it popped back up on the front. I got them on beautifully in the end BUT they only lasted 10 days.... I actually think that was a miracle in itself because of the fight I had to get these to stick ! 2nd time around I opted for silk sculptures which were also difficult but manageable...

Absolutely.

Plus get your scrubfresh and put an orange stick the other side of the pad and really scrub it in down those sidewalls. Be careful not to apply too much acrylic, make sure it really tapers down so you don't have to do much filing to finish. These are surely some of the hardest nails to work on successfully . . . good luckx
