I use PERFORMANCE tips [/B]from CND. They have a deep smile and look gorgeous, are pre blended, thin and flexible so pefect for gels. And YES you can buy them without being a CND trained technician.

On the rare occasion that I use tips, I use "Asian" well-less tips from Nailiteinc.com.
Blend like butter, ultra thin.... I've tried several, and won't settle for anything different now.
AND THE PRICES ARE AWESOME :green:
With well-less, you put them where YOU want them and there's no wasted time of cutting out the wells.
ALSO, no pre-blending either. If you did that with these, they'd dissappear, they are that thin. So thin, I would NOT be surprised if you could blend them with a white buffer block.

I sculpt now, though, might start tipping again for the poppits.. we'll see.. haven't yet decided on that.. will have a play with poppits first and see what I prefer...

I use CND Velocity, OPI structure tips as they have no well. I'm now going to try the new CND tips, I can't remember the name but they have no well and are pre-buffed.

I use Le Chat Gelee system and their tips they are lovely, very naturally thin, and very popular with my clients.

But there are tones to choose from and many i havent used, so good luck in you search!

Are you looking for white/french tips with a deep smile?

If you are then I would point you towards EZ Flow's Perfection French tips.
They really do have deep smiles.

I just sticick to Star Nails tips, i like the french white as they are lovely, thin and flexible. Not forgetting they are always available at the whole salers. Being in Cornwall, we have a limited supply of whole salers unless you shop online and i'm never in to recive stuff so it's easier for me to just get my disposable from there.
