Edge-ish Natural with a twist

Postby angelspot » Sat May 01, 2010 9:02 am

Well I broke afew nails the other day and my first thought was "yes now I can try another edge nail" so here it is,
I find them quite hard in the finishing to get the file at the right angle so as not to smooth over the peak. any tips would be greatly appreciated.
This is also my first attempt at 3d (with a 3d specific brush).. I bought a Nfu.oh #6 yesterday so I can do more 3d.. I'm not sure if it's meant to be like this but it has a split kinda thing, anyone elses do this or did i get a dud?

Thank you ladies.
Aww trust me to get the dud one :( it was still way easier than using my big ass #8 brush though.
How long did it take you to train yours Lisa? (and how exactly do you do it just by repeated use and moulding it back or is there a quick way.. would the boiling hot water trick work? i have done that before for stray hairs but never a big seperation)
I can't comment on 3d brushes Bec as this is the first i've ever used.
heres some other angles I do need to get a magic wand so i can pinch in the curve

You need to train your brush into a shape before you use it, saturate it with monomer and use your brush wipe to continually wipe it into its shape (wet, wipe, wet wipe and so on, while you are wiping your 3d twirl it to a point on your wipe), with 3d being a point.. When you get a brush its dry, it has a shape but as soon as you wet it, it can lose this shape.. It also needs to be re shaped every time you use it at the start because you will find it loses glue through the bristles, this all needs to come out before it will keep that shape definately. When you fill your dappen dish with monomer pour it in against the brush, this will help to fill the belly.

If this fails I'd say your up for a new one :(

Thanks Tess... i never knew that's what "training" the brush was lol. I did do all that before I used it as I do with any new brush and always mould them back into shape after use.. thats what I took a photo of it does come back to a nice point .. just happens to be 2 of them :lol: oh if i don't laugh i'll cry. It was the last one at N.S.S too. Do you think I should contact them or go straight to Vivid??

Vivid are not affiliated in any way with N.S.S, you need to go to them directly, not Vivid, they cant help you.

And yes if its faulty (which I would consider losing bristles first go is) they will exchange it for you.
