Ok so i was just wondering if we could do a little before and after thing....

where people post a picture of their very first ( or near to ) L&P nail enhancement and then an L & P enhancement they have done recently, and how many years/ months/weeks were in between the pictures.

I done my course in march but in no way feel it was the best training. I Now have the money for the CND complete course and i know everyone cant rate it highly enough, but im just a little worried that ill spend all this money go on a course and be creating the same type of enhancement i am now. ( Basically worrying that i am already creating a begginners nail enhancement And that i dont really need another course) and that its just practice practise practise that i need to perfect it, its just £2,400 is alot of money to me. so would really appreciate seeing everyones standerd enhancments Ty xxx

my main problem is ratio/consistancy, and actual application. I either do it to thick or do it to thin. Ill upload some pictures of ones i have done. suppose that would help....not that you can really see the full detail in the pictures when i put the acrylic over say a white tip its not like a nice clean finish. only way i can discribe it is it looks bumpy and mis coloured even tho its smooth etc. i also need to learn a filing technique as this is what is taking me the longest. i think im answering my own questions here lol....but then i also worry that its because the L&P brand im using is rubbish? Its A.S.P hmmm i feel confident enough on nail art and designs its just the basic L&P overlay and was also never taught to use white acrylic so am finding this super hard, if someone came to me and said could i just have a manicure please id be like errrrrm. cus i feel id only be doing prep and buffing/polish i was taught no massage technique or anything. xxx

Some of mine. The set at the top on the right were for an photographic purpose so are rather extreme and have far too much white but still shows how my shape and application has changed since i first qualified
