I haven't tried the TT forms yet. Have tried all the others, using some EZ FLow forms right now.

But they STILL pop open????:sad:

Is it the temp or humidity (or lack of humidity?) factor of my house? They all pop open so far? Some worse than others.....
Even Creative.

UGH

I DON'T get it.:grr:


Shall try my TT samples next.

Thanks again to everyone that sent me samples!!!
I had forgotten about this thread until someone bumped it:o

Blue.
I didn't try the clear... they seemed to be made of the same material as the clear IBD's which I HATED. Don't like that rubbery stuff at all.

Umm I think they're 'acra', aren't they?
Wonder why they're not made anymore if everyone loves them so much.

How odd.....

I used to use creative's clear ones when using gel but i wasnt too fond of there C curve. I now love NSI's Platinum ones and there clear ones are great. I think i may have tried some others i got from professional beauty at the gmex last year.

I bought some Acra C forms off another geek the other day...
have only tried them a few times so far BUT I LOVE THEM !!!!

Its the only time I have ever sculpted on myself and not had seepage...I am over the moon,

They even fit on nancy nail trainer which is FAB coz, I find it a right pain in the bum trying to get the sticky forms on that.

Now I WANT some :cry:

To me, if they are that great, WHY on earth would anyone want sticky ones?
You pay for it once, and you're DONE.


I'm gonna go whine in a corner now LOL:irked:

theres the prob, not for us, but for the manufacturers of sticky disposable forms, if the Acra-C took over the world, they'd go down the gurgler :irked:

You and me both hun, but they don't make them any more:irked:
If anyone knows where anyone is producing them I think we would all like to give them a go.
But for now I'll just have to play with poppits and hope forms become a thing of the past:lol:

I love sculpting and find it so much quicker than tipping, if only the things will fit. What I've found <and I've used both creative and ezflow forms>, is that they're very obstinate, can't cope with much of a curve and prone to seep unless they're being used on a fairly flat nail. I've presented a couple of very experienced techs with the type of c curves that've caused the problems and they struggled, too, despite filing them down in the usual manner. :irked:

Anybody got any suggestions, apart from giving up and tipping, please?
