I use perfect colour pink for everyone's nailbeds - I use perfect white if they want Perm French - Soft White if the dont want it quite so bright - I make a mix of soft white and natural for those clients who want non French nails - I use clear over glitters.

I hope I haven't forgotten anything LOL.

Hi Fiona

Would you mind telling me how you make this, i.e. how much white compared to natural?

I find it really hard to get rid of all the file lines on clear - do you find it better using a slightly opaque colour?

Thanks! :)

Tracy,

I mix 2 parts soft white with 3 parts natural - I only use this on the tip though not on the nailbed - I always use pink on the nailbed.

If you are having problems with your fill lines then check out the "chasing the line" thread somewhere on here and also Sam's tutorials on rebalancing.

If you are having problems with fill lines then you will have problems with whatever colour you use - it is not the colour, it is something you are not getting quite right when preparing the previous product.

Hope that makes sense.

Hi there,

I too am interested in how to acheive a french polish effect that isnt too obvious? I have had clients in who like the white tip effect but dont want it too obvious! I use creative products, but havent got a soft white, so could i use the white i usually use mixed with either the pink or natural to create a softer look?

Thanks you!
Michelle.

Our color powders are being use more then the pink and whites we use dare to dazzling boogie nights and have walk of fame boogie nights too and for some color work we use pastel color collection powders and the rainbow collection is number 1 in Thailand we have that too we have just buy the earthstones and gem stones collections but we have not try them yet because we only have them yesterday but they do look very nice .

All ezflow all have step by step instruction sheet all easy to use .
