they look nice, but they look kinda oversized/wide (some call it "hippy"), perhaps this is where you have tried to preserve the deep smile line.
Nice finish on them though.

It's an interesting look considering I have never seen natural smile lines this deep. It's much more a competition look.

They do look nice, agree with Carl on the hippy bit...also on pic 4 i can see what looks like a bit of nat nail free edge on some of the nails...almost like the white tip isn't quite covering the nat smile line. I would class these more a comp nail than a salon nail. But there are clients that like this look, so well done x

You have done a nice job for sure, but I do not like the look myself.

Too extreme, too unnatural and too fake looking. No natural nails look like these and natural not fake looking is what 90% of clients want.

Competition is competition ... not salon. Fun to try but we are working in the real world.

For the look you have tried to achieve you have done a splendid job but as I say, not real.

Hi Hun

I agree with the girls on this one re the hippy bit etc.

On a personal note I love the deep smile lines and so do my clients.
(So were did you get the tips?):lol:

Hey there,

I really like them - and the nail art keeps it really classy, IMO.

Any longer and I'd say it may be over doing it, but the length is a great balance considering the deep smiles. Nails like these are all the rave around here, and I happen to like them also.

I think they're gorgeous. Only thing Id say is maybe the pinkie is a little long. Sometimes its hard to tell as you cant really compare it to the other nails. If you look at the white ratio and compare it with the other nails, you can see it's slightly longer. I always make my pinkies too long in fear of making them too short, lol

Nothing to worry about- you should be proud!

Great job!

I have never used these white tips,though I have got some to play with on Handy Mandy.
Do u have to blend at all or do you place them on and place your acrylic over the top without filing the tip?

I agree with what others have said re"hippy". Love your nail art..very nice touch. Nothing wrong with the fake look..can look lovely on the right nail beds..as you ahve proved. Just watch out for french rebalance time..will you be able to duplicate the deep smile for your model? If they are on your own..then no prob!

Well done, not all clients want the natural look and there is a specific sector who demand this look, I'm sure they would be chuffed to receive these xx

I think you did a FAB job! If I saw those on a stranger, I would automatically assume they were done by a very good tech. I personally really like the deep smile look, but sometimes natural is nice too.
I think it is WRONG to assume 90% of clients prefer natural looking nails. Why are the colored tips/glitter all the rage? Around here I see girls with pink nail beds and any color but white on the free edge.

I think that the "natural looking" is best attitude is a little conservative. Just like makeup, bright red lips and dark lined eyes are not "natural" but very striking, and stylish. They have their place. Some women want that statement, and some don't. So in this sense, I think the deep smiles have a place. They are striking and make a statement. I also think they make the nails look elegant. They are like bright red lipstick or smokey, dark lined eyes...they POP! I personally don't want nails that look 100% natural, because they are a little plain and short. Who cares if people know they're fake, thats like saying "HEY! YOUR HAIR COLOR ISN'T REAL!" Who cares. As long as it looks good.

I think the nails you did are nearly perfect! Even the "hippiness" others talk about is barely noticable, so just take them in ever so slightly and they're perfect! GREAT JOB!
