From reading your post you say you do others nails, be careful as you will not be insured to work on the public as you are not trained, i know you are probably thinking so what, what can go wrong doing nails ?
There is loads of problems that can be cause by doing nails untrained and some of them can be quite nasty but to answer your question you prep as normal adhere the white tip to the free edge and apply clear acrylic over the tip and nailplate hth and welcome to the site :hug:

Hiya, welcome to the best site in the world for nail techs and trainees alike!!

Can't help much as personally i prefer using clear tips for l&p cuz if you're doin a set of pink and white's i've learnt the hard way there's no easy way around it using white tips as ya gotta apply white acrylic for the rebalance anyways so ya might as well start as ya mean to go on with the acrylic! hope this helps a little and congrats on the pregnancy n hope ya succeed at the nail training xx

I think you also need to be very careful of picking up bad habits, when you practice before training too. It is harder to break a habit once you have it, then if you start of with the correct techniques. :)

Hi, I love l&p pink&whites. I offer two kinds. The first one is starting with the white tip and my method below with zone 2&3. When they need a backfill I then give thenm one. The other is applying the white powder over a well blended natual tip. I use a cookie cutter methode, "I call it".

I buy cheap tips to use as my white cutters, you add your white powder, pat out, then I dip a tip in my monomer (so no sticking) hold it vertical straight to the sky and cut. Perfect smiles every time. Its good to use a tip one size smaller then the nail. There are also metal cutters if you dont like tips.

Sometimes I just create the smile free hand, but I like different methods.
After white is applied, I appy pink to zone 2&3. If you use a candy intense pink dont overlap your white hardly. The last ball can be clear acrylic to cap the entire nail & free edge. Sounds like alot,but there beautiful, strong and all ten look the same. Practice Practice[/COLOR][/COLOR]
