The onychodermal band is a natural feature of most nails ........ using opaque powders of course masks this natural feature and in so doing, some feel the nails look more fake. In a similar way that white powder masks the natural colour of the nail's free edge and makes the nails look fake. Some people are into fake (which is fine) and some are not.
I am into natural but of course offer whatever anyone who is paying the bill wants (with appropriate advice given of course).
These images are really beautiful and very natural .. onychdermal band and all!
Very natural! Lovely set. How do you do it? For example as catsaremad says for very short nails or nails with almost no free edge. How would you do that for them? Do you use pigmented acrylics or use the nails natural onychodermal band and sculpt from there? Would love to know! Any hints for making this possible using gels?
