Okay so here it is... I finally built up the courage to post my work. :Scared: I used EzFlow Earthstones in Sand. I love this color! I used it for Thanksgiving.

The nails int the first picture are longer then I shortened them just a little for the rest of the pictures.(I like my nails long) Please tell me what you think. I know I need improvement and I would love to know your opinions and advise, Thanks!!!

hi hun love the colour, i have a couple of things tho.. they look very fanned you need to pinch so you get a nice arch, and also they are quite thick looking at the free edge.

Other than that lovely

I agree with what Kirsty has said,
if you had blended the tip all the way down to the free edge so it was a lot thinner before you put your product on to the tip you would have got a thinner result and would have been able to pinch it to get the arch hth
lovely colour though :hug:

Thank you guys I see what you mean about the free edge I will work on that but i do like the fanned look personally. I try not to do that much on others nails. Thanks for the advise though. I really appreciate it.

I think they are very nice.

If you are going for a fanned look I think you need to say so so the rest of us know that's what you meant to do:hug:. I know they are big in the US.

The colour is very nice, the tips are a bit thick, Did you sculpt them or are they done over clear tips? Nice smile lines!

Thank you... yes they are done over clear tips. I got them done as thin as i could without getting down to the tip itself.

Hi hun, I love them long to:green: don't be afraid to file a clear tip, they are quiet chunky compared to white tips and they don't look filed when you put your acrylic over them and it will allow you to have that elegant look.
Apart from being a little thick, I think they are very nice and I love the colour:hug:

i think overall they look very nice, you might want to drill from under the nail so they give an optical illusion of not seeming so thick, with the length you have you might want to taper just a little so they do not appear as a duck beak,,, i think you smile lines are just beautiful, when you file go give them a more original look, try to go for the c-curve,,, cause i think they look good, i would let you do mine, and i don't let no one touch my nails..

i love my nails really long.mine are about as long as yours after you filed them down abit but if i had longer nail beds i would probably have them longer.i love the shape.i do agree with the others about the free edge but i can also have the same problem when im using glitter. well done for posting i look forward to seeing more
