Hi Geeks!

I'm so excited to ask for a critique! This is a set of l&p sculpts that I did this morning.
Fyi, I used Creative l&p perfect color powders in pink and soft white.

barrel shot:

I'll have to perfect my photography skills to get a good barrel shot picture. They're a large size so you can zoom in and get a good look.

I can't wait to get some constructive feedback! Thanks ya'll!

**edited to add** I think I messed up the little rank thingie.... I'd like to know about the smile, apex, shape and length.

i think they look very ,very lovely,
i would have loved to see close ups, but overall they are great,
the only thing i would say is that on the barrel shot, the edges look a bit too thick, but just by bevelling the edges this will sort it out, and maybe just by bringing the sidewalls in a tiny bit straighter will result in a sleeker nail,
but i think they look fab and would be very happy if they were on the ends of my fingers
well done you xxx

I think those are excelent salon nails and any customer would feel very proud leaving with those nails. The thing i would improve is the shape, it isn't very consistent in the 10 nails, some look more rounded some more square.

Here's some super close up pics. Any instructions on how to get a good barrel shot picture? They do look thicker in the pic than what I remember.

overall i think you did a good job

critique points:

sidewalls could be straighter
barrel shot: your c-curve is good - but you could make them more "cresent moon" shaped rather than a band that is the same thickness - i made the very same mistake flower, so dont take it to heart.

but as i said - i think you done a good job, considering its your first go - well done
