Right Girls and Guys,
This is a first for me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have taken the plunge and doing Acrylic , had a little help with this from a brill person, and this is the result..................
Well they are smiling at last and not smirking............
What do you all think...............
Couldn't do them in White, left that in the shop, so use the glitter powder instead lol.....................




Dont be to harsh............ no please be as honest as you can...........I need the feed back.................

Love Ruth

You`re just so talented, I can`t get my brush (or is it head) around glitter, I absolutely love it but it never turns out right at all.
They are really great, so when`s the tutorial??????

I have just read and re-read all Sams tutorials again but there isn`t anything there about glitter tips.
Samantha posted about it a while back saying to pick up bead then dip in glitter and placing bead upsidedown onto nail. I tried this but it was very uneven, glitter just stayed in one place. Is there an easier way?????

it all depends on the type of powder your using to create the glitter tips. both ezflow and creative have the ready mixed glitter powders that dont mean a change with you application. try those, you wont have a problem. now when it comes to using any other types of glitter i'll then mix with my clear powder, i fond it difficult to pick the glitter up on my acrylic bead too!!!! its easy for me to mix and match though because all ezflow powders are intermixable. sure some one here can tell you which glitter will be best for you to use as a 'mix'.

good luck

If, when I start doing acrylics, mine turn out half as good as yours I will be chuffed. Keep up the good work. ;)

I am a gel girly, so my main challenge is to get over the brush thang, learn to pat!
but your nails look cool

Ruth those are really coming on!!! Smiles look great!

Be careful of getting a 'waistline' after zone 2!! (middle and ring finger in top pic)

Use a slightly smaller bead in zone 2 than you are doing and that will sort it. It is only minute but you know my eagle eyes!! :D No mercy!!

I would say you are there now and must be feeling quite confident.

How is Faye doing??

By the way ... Nice white!
