Here is an example of how to submit a critique and also how to rate one.

Submitting a critique
  1. Click the new Critique button (you must be registered and logged in to submit a critique).
  2. Enter a title for the critique (i.e. My cute nail).
  3. Click the browse button to navigate to a jpeg image on your computer. This will upload the image for you. You do not have to be a premium geek to do this - however if you want to add additional pictures (i.e. different angles) then you will need to upload the additional images with the attachment system which is only availible for premium geeks.
  4. Select the strength of the feedback meter (strong, medium or wooseyish).
  5. Tick the relevant areas you want critiquing on. For instance, its daft to have your smile line critiqued if its a single colour application. Likewise its daft to have Use of colour or design ticked if there is no freaking design on it.
PLEASE NOTE: You will NOT be able to change your critique areas once you submit the thread so choose wisely!

How to rate:

You can rate when you reply to the author OR you can select the Rate Now option next to the rating while viewing the critique. Please note that you should respect the authors feedback meter. Abuse of the ratings can lead to infractions, mega bad reputation and/or banning from the site (yes, the mods can view your ratings).

Please don't respond with a lame 'thats nice'. See if you can string more than 2 words together like 'Thats a great use of colour there bobby' (see, thats 8 words!). Even better would be something constructive.

Please note that the people who submit the critique can delete the critique whenever they want.

Edit: If you guys tick areas for critique that are not relevant (i.e. smile lines when you CANT even see them) your overall rating will be affected greatly (in a downward kind of way!!!).

You have done a good job Samuel lol However there does seem to be a slight gap between the smile line and the pink try to butt your white a little nearer to your pink :lol:

I updated the first post to try and REITERATE that if you ask for a critique on the smile but you cant actually SEE the smile line - chances are you will end up with BIG FAT HONKIN 0's there which will lower your overall score!!!
