Hi. i just wondered which forms were the best for sculpting..the disposable or the re-usable ones? And how on earth do you manage to sculpt a nail when there's no free edge to fit the form under ? Or do you only fit a tip to this type of nail? When i did my training we only sculpted when there was a free edge to get the form under.

I prefer decent quality disposables for clients (I find them faster to fit and give a great result), but I use resusables on my own nails otherwise I get all in a mess as it sticks to the wrong place!

Reusable
pros: Well... um... reusable :D
Cons: Wont fit as many people and less customisation ability

Disposable
Pros: Easier to customise so they fit more people, giver greater versatility.
Cons: Can be more expensive long run (not much though).

In my opinion, you shouldnt sculpt on someone that has no free edge (well, if you run a risk of skin exposure anyway).

Hope this helps

Designer Nails restrictions on product purchases are only on L&P (maybe the new Gel) so you should be fine on purchasing the forms as long as you have proof that you are a professional nail technician.
