hi ,had i client asking about getting enhancements but instead of getting the clear or pink l&p she would like black,how would i keep the black from touching the tip or could i use french fins (nsi) and she wants a playboy nailart sticker applyed would i enbed it into the acrylic or put it on before i do the buffing ,iv actually seen those nails done like that as thay have wee diamonti above the pb but i think they are a full false nail ,what do u guys think:irked:

I've done black and white french before. I do reverse application the same as P&W.
I do the zones 1&2 first with black powder & than butt upto the black with white powder.

i do the same as beautynails using the reverse application technique, if the white slightly bleeds over the black this is rectified once you do your finishing filing.

Do you mean you're only using white tips? No white L&P?

U need to sculpt the full set or overlay the full set.. you cant use white tips and get the result she wants... you will need to create the white tip and not rely on a white plastic tip to do it for you :)

If you can sculpt P&W you can do a tip & overlay the same way. Just use a clear or natural tip instead of your white one.
Doing black & white french is no different to doing P&W just using different colours.
Your best to do your whites with L&P. If your not confident with that & really want to use a white tip, use white L&P over it.

have you tried a reverse application ?

fit and blend a tip or put a form on,
put black in zone 2 and 3
white on tip
build nail with clear
and then finish and gloss as usual.

yes, do all the 10 blacks
give your brush a real good clean
and then all 10 whites.

if you are using white tips i would have used natural or clear over all off the tips first then apply the black if it goe over the tip it won't matter too much as when you file down it will come off that area xx
