Ok - I haven't done a full set on myself for a long time but I think I've improved a lot since reading critiques on here and looking at pictures.

I've put before and after photos so you can see properly (excuse my super-long nail beds sticking out the top of my nails in before pics!!)

My right hand is better as i'm left-handed so would like critique of this hand mainly but will put other hand photos on too!!

Before;
(good hand) http://i187.photobucket.com/albums/x204/ophala/IMG_1044.jpg

(not so good hand)
http://i187.photobucket.com/albums/x204/ophala/IMG_1045.jpg

After;
(good hand) http://i187.photobucket.com/albums/x204/ophala/IMG_1046.jpg

(not so good hand)
http://i187.photobucket.com/albums/x204/ophala/IMG_1049.jpg

Side;
http://i187.photobucket.com/albums/x204/ophala/IMG_1048.jpg

Thanks in advance for any comments!

(For some reason my critique options haven't come up - anyone know why??)

They look good to me - one looks slightly hippy - on the good hand picture, and need to be made a little slimmer but I would be proud if I had done those.

Love em.

They're nice.... I love a bit of sparkle!

I would agree with Theresa's comment about the middle finger on your good hand being slightly wide.... but that is easy to fix.

Well done for posting.

thanks for all your comments!! it's so nice to have a set i'm finally proud of. my other sets i thought looked good at the time but looking back they were very flared and sidewalls weren't straight.

they're not sculpts - they're tips. OPIs clear structure tips - they have no well and a deep smile line so kinda cheating!! the smile line is OPI silverfX and the base is shimmerfX.

I think they look lovely, well done. Lovely use of sparkle! As has been said, a couple are a little bit hippy, but on the whole they are beautifully done. :)
