Hating nail art
#1
Please please tell me how to go a chevron nail, they always look like a kid did them. I think I do great nails but lack serious nail art skills. There has to be a trick to doing chevron.

a long striing brush will do it.. polish one side \ then the other side / . I personally like the point clean right on the free edge \/ . Some like the point to be a little higher up the free edge.. its your choice there. but my method works well with the striping brush. Now take a striping brush in a contrasting or complimentary color.. white or black and lay the tip at the top of the \ side - at the stress area, let the brush hairs almost naturally fall right on that line \ to the free edge and pull lightly.. repeat on the / side. allow the paint to dry thoroughly - maybe use a small hair dryer on low, then top coat.. This is a really good tutorial I think I will try and shoot.. I'll enlist the next door neighbor tomorrow maybe Smile

Is there a difference between Inverted Moulds, Dual Forms and Pop-Its? If so, can you explain what?

Sorry, you never mentioned that in your original post, did not intend to hijack your post! Undecided
Melissa, they are actually totally different. They are made from a totally different material, are much much thinner and are designed to chemically bond with acrylic so they can not be removed. They become the surface of the finished nail extension. That's why they are so strong and robust and don't need any topcoats, polish or gels. You should take a look at this independent magazine article about Inverted Moulds in SCRATCH by nailympics judge Martin John: http://www.easynail.co.uk/images/scratcharticle.pdf

as great an idea as inverted moulds are, you can't use them with gels!

That is very true, but liquid and powder acrylic creates a stronger nail and with the moulds you don't have to worry about self leveling and there is zero need for buffing as the mould is not removed and chemically bonds with the acrylic so you are left with an instantly smooth and glossy finish just like gel :-)

Have a quick read of this independent Scratch magazine article by Nailympics judge Martin John, any questions just ask :-)
