Hello! :green: I spose this is a stupid question but i just can't get my head around it.
If you do a tip and overlay, that just means using a tip and only 1 colour acrylic over the whole nail right?
then when it starts to grow out and a refill needs doing, how do you do the smile line if it's all in the 1 colour?
wouldn't you see the natural smile line under the acrylic?

then when it starts to grow out and a refill needs doing, how do you do the smile line if it's all in the 1 colour? smile line you need to do a basic french rebal and replace the smile using white powder and create your new smile that way
wouldn't you see the natural smile line under the acrylic? yes thats why you perform a french rebal :)

Thankyou!! What if you used a natural tip, not a white tip and the client doesn't want french? personally myself i'm not overly fussed on the bright white, i like the more natural look. Thankyou for your help :D

If your using a natural tip then you dont need to worry about smile lines.. because the natural smile line will eventually show through which is fine - because thats the natural look - I sculpt so for a natural looking nail I actually use Geegs not so secret mix for the FE. :)

lol.. cant remember how to link... so its 2 parts Soft white (this is CND products) 1 part Flawless Pink, and a touch of yellow.. it works just as well using clear powder in place of the soft white as well (and makes a more natural nail look for MALE clients.)
