Im loving creatives "thin" welless performance tips which I find suitable for the majority of my clients. but.. I have a woman coming in next week who has very wide flat nails and I have previously sized performance tips on her nails and I dont think any amount of tailoring/upsizing is going to make a good fit; therefore I need to buy some other good quality tips and was wondering are eclipse tips my best option or is there something else out there that is nice and thin that requires minimal blending, I dread the thought of having to go back to thinning the tip. I thank you for any advice you can offer.

Eclipse is a good option as the number one size is the largest number one in the Creative tip category. They also flatten out nicely because of the notched contact area.

I'm sure for the odd client who needs this sort of a specialised large tip size you will be able to blend on this occasion. You can always use the clear Eclipse and not have to blend too much.

Mustn't get lazy ... sometimes you have to do things the 'old fashioned' way.

Thanks geeg, Im sorry but cant find my training manual, do I understand correctly that as it has the special notched contact area, I dont remove any of the contact area just thin the bulk, adhere to natural nail tip then blend into nail.

I have used eclipse only once before on a friend who has one flat nail and as with all other tips and sculpts I have done on her nail they all break on that one particular nail. I removed the bulk of the contact area as I would normally do before adhering is that where I went wrong. Not looking forward to doing a whole ten nails unless I get this right. Thanks.

It is entirely your choice to use the whole contact area or to remove only some of it.

Frankly, this thing about tips breaking and sculpts being so much better is complete nonsense. Scupted nails are only minimally stronger than a tip and it is such a small thing that it isn't worth talking about. MILLIONS of great nail technicians use tips every day of their lives and their clients are not all running in and out of the salon with broken nails and unhappy faces.

If you want to sculpt then sculpt, if you want to use tips, then tip. If the enhancement is built correctly, then both will last equally well.

thanks for your response. I am not very good at sculpt and am happier with tips. So shall order some eclipse, and give them a go, this time leaving the contact area intact. Again thanks for your help.
