Hello again everyone,

Well after all your great tips from my first set i thought i'd have another go today on myself......

So here you go i must admitt i personally think these are much better than the first ones but its only my second go so i will leave up to you, the experts :green:

I'm not sure if i've got the right angles on th pics so if you want me to take more let me know, a few of the pics make the nails look they are filed wonky but i swear there not lol xxx

I dont do gel so cant comment too much,
they look really nice, i would have never guessed it was only your second set, if anything i would say they look a little flat and in need of an apex but nice work

sorry i didnt mean it to come out harsh,
im only jealous!!!
what i mean is, would you actually see many of your clients wearing these and keeping them like this for 3 weeks?
i would reduce the c curve,
reduce the length
just to make them a bit more wearable if you know what i mean

Hello kirsty these look visually perfect except the apex needs working on a little and they seem a little to long, but as jackie said a good set of comp gels. For everyday wear these wouldn't last me 2 days, mabe keep these on for as long as you can and see how they stand up to your every day life. I think the index finger will be the first to go :cry:

A beautifull set of nails you are doing a fab job well done you xxxxxx you can sit next to me in sep if you want to enter proff beauty gel :)

these are tips hun i haven't tried scuplt yet thought i'd practise this first and then move on to that as i'm abit nervous about sculpting with gel cos i cant control the product to well lol

i think they look longer in the pics tricky than they actually are they are shorter than the ones you did at the masers hun i will show you tuesday so you can see properly xxx

Hi Kirsty, I think that these look fantastic. Re. the apex, I got a tip from my educator as Ezflow gel is self levelling too, get your client to turn her hand upside down for a few seconds and it stops it levelling out too much, leaving your apex in place iykwim.

I don't think they look extreme, I think they look very wearable....well done hun....start offering to clients NOW! It will bring your timings down as you know....I didn't think that Brisa is self levelling?

Is it not? to be honest i need to educate myself on the product again as it didn't sink in on the course lol

i'm putting it on my new price lists monday :eek:

Also cathie can you give me some tips for my gel nails for the comp coming up if i was to do a set like this what would i need to change??

Blimey, who am I...Mrs competition expert not lol! You need to ask Oceana...always the bridesmaid never the bride...I know she won't mind me saying that!

Same as l/p I guess....nice and thin, nice c curves...all the same stuff that you have been doing with your l/p....I guess you could pre pinch your tips....Antony showed me pinching gel last week, but personally I don't think it works unless you can clamp it and that would be too sore.

I have found that you do really need to get it right with your tips as I always file off far too much product when finishing and loose the white.
