I have a client with teeny weeny nails too.:)

I just have to reduce the width of the smallest tip with a file then apply as normal. I haven't had a problem with them yet.

File along either side of the tip equally, retaining the tip's lower curve, until you have the size you need.

i'm another who prefers to sculpt on a tiny nail bed, just find it a lot less fuss than trying to blend tips thoroughly when there is so little room to maneovre the file..
