Hi, I really love your work! Which brand of acrylic products do you use? Also is that beige or cover pink that you used to make the nail bed longer?
 Reply

Thank you! I use harmony and young nails. I use cover pinks. I have a few different ones, some warm, beige, shimmery, different opacities.

Love your work, Jesse! I noticed the cuts in the forms. Does that help with deep sidewalls?

Thank you! It's funny, these nails are from just a few months ago, but I see so many mistakes Wink Oh well, we're always improving, right LOL. About cutting the forms, it helps you bend the form more narrow to get a good c curve. When you try to curve the form too much without tailoring it often you get gaps, like this

and you see how it bends the form and makes a crease,

so what you do is cut the form right at the sidewall point in to the shape of cat ears

now you get a tight narrow fit, parallel sidewalls and no gaps Shy

Thanks for posting!!". Can you go a step further with these angles & close ups applying the GEL? Especially like picture # 4 - that is similar to a design I do & am having trouble with gel thickness-- THANKS for always stepping up to help!!!!

Thank you!! That makes great sense. I have a client with extremely deep sidewalls and I always struggle with forms on her. Thanks for the pics, too!

You're welcome! I'm actually on vacation now, so it may be a while, but I'll try to help soon. In the meantime, check out this video. It has great filing techniques too. And the close ups you're looking for are at about 5 minutes in Shy
