hi guys..me again with another question!:rolleyes:
this is how I was taught how to do tip n dip infills

1.buff nails
2.dehydrate new nail growth
3.apply resin over whole nail...air dry
4.buff up

when I do this you can still see the new nail growth..can you after applying resin over whole nail dip more acrylic then after all 10 nails brush off excess powder then resin again then activator then 4,5??? would be very grateful for any help, thankyou x x x
can anyone help with me question.....please x x

was it any help, i dont think we have many techs on here using the tip and dip system.
i think victoria has quite a bit of experience withit though.
hiya, yeah it was handy... is tip n dip not a popular choice then? and if not why not? as the end result looks the same if you were using l&p...i was told this was a popular choice but you're right not many peeps on here do talk about tip n dip and not many people out there want it because they not know what it is! n they tend to stick to l&p or gel!! because I've been advertising. tip n dip and not many people want it... not long started out I wanted to learn this as is not so hard to learn n good for new people like me starting out but I want to go onto sculptured nails once I get better at what I have been taught..
may i be so stupid to ask but what is tip and dip??? i have never heard of it....is there a tutorial so i could watch/read about it?xxx

for infill's on tip and dip...i used to do any filing that needed doing....then prep...then resin in zone 3 and dip and activator .... if the apex needs doing (rebalance) then file down the whole nail and resin/dip/activator the whole nail building in a new apex in zone 2.
i have got ur email sj...sent u info on tip n dip
on step 7 I don't do the 'sprinkle' I get client to dip nail into a bowl of clear acrylic.... they've got to do it fast when it comes to dipping so its like in and out... if you know what I mean? and not dipping finger right into the bowl.. hope you understand
