This post is a quickie. I wanted to show you guys some gel nails that I had the chance to work on. The model is a nail biter so I had to deal with damaged cuticles and a very small nail plate but never fear! The nail doctor is here! Lol Okay, okay let’s get serious. My model wanted a French manicure which would have been impossible with her natural nails so I decided to make things easy on myself by gluing on some white tips. I do think that the free edge of the nail (whether natural or artificial) should be shorter than the nail plate in order to achieve a balanced look however my client’s personal preferences trump any “rule” I could ever make up. She wanted really long nails so we went for it! Using the CND nail system I was able to give her the length all while keeping the nails thin. I think there’s nothing worst than thick fake nails. Urgh. Considering what I was asked to do I am pretty happy with the result and so was my model. That’s all folks!
