Hi there all, thank you for your time saving tips last week.

My attached picture is of my 8th model so far and I would really appreciate your expert opinions on both the Acrylics and photo tech (from mobile to computer).

I have only been practising on friends & family since June this year & my time is an embarrasing 5 hours still.

Thank you and look forward to your replies.

Regards, Jacque

Hi Jacque

Am i being dim - but where is the attached pic?

I took five hours when I first started so don't worry just keep practising!!

Also please don't take this the wrong way but I would suggest you did them more frequently - you say 8th since june - so that is a bit less than one set a week - you may find it more helpful to do them more often.

hope this helps and good luck

oooopsssss

yes I was being dim coz there it is big and may I say beautiful

I think they look fantastic and you should be well proud - it really does not matter much at this stage about how long it takes just keep plodding on they look fab.

I think there is a bit too much reflection of the light (good it means they shiney) and a little fuzzy but hey I am no technical person - what I know about that sort of stuff you could put on a postage stamp.

Thank you.

My models take so long in booking up, but I would love to be able to practise every day. Still I study as many other aspects as I can and I guess I'll just have to be patient.

Am also going to the Nail Show at Excel to pick up some more tips & bits and looking forward to that.

Regards, Jacque

As far as the picture goes I think you need more lighting.

As far as the nails go, I tend to prefer a more curved smile line, and white not as thick as yours. BUT, they do look consistent and even.

Hiya Just to say your doing well for a beginner :biggrin:
I would say that the nails do look very flat, So try to add more L&P in zone 2, So that you build a nice apex ;) Smile lines do take ages to get right so just keep at it. Well done x

Hi

I don't know anything about cameras so Carnot help you there! :rolleyes:

The nails: very good attempt IMO they look a little porky around the middle which in turn is making them appear too flat almost ski slopy.
I would suggest shaping your smile line a little and building your c-curve to give a slimmer shape, which your clients will lurve :D as it make the fingers look longer and more elegant.
A very good effort though just keep on practicing! :cool:
