first full hand sculpts

Are you ready for your nails to be critiqued? This is where you will receive constructive criticism on your nail photos.
Forum rules
The critiquers comment on the nails in the photo. Use below as a guide:
1. Point out what's working, and what's not. Be specific.
2. Point out some things that you think could make the nails better, or ask questions about areas that you are unsure of. Be specific.
3. Don't be afraid to make comments. Everyone knows something about nails. And you all know different things. You might know something that others don't, and your comments might be helpful.
4. While the critiquers comment, the nail artist reads and considers the comments on their own merits.
5. The artist thanks people for their comments. Don't argue them. You can, though, ask questions to clarify what the critiquer is seeing.
6. If a critiquer asks a question about your work or what you're trying to do, answer it the best you can.
7. From here the artist can edit their work accordingly from the constructive feedback they received or they can choose to ignore anything they don't agree with. The final judgment belongs to the nail artist that posted.

My first full hand of sculpts, for your consideration. I havn't done the other one yet as i wouldn't mind some advice first. Will do the other hand tomorrow night. I love avolve so easy to finish and looks nice and shiny. The glitter is a nail graphix glitter called plum crazy. A little bit difficult to use as it has some bigger sized stars in it. The ring finger I didn't have the form on quite right but never mind.

Cheers Jane :D

Don't have much to say but WOW!! Awesome, esp since they're your first set of sculpts. Nice thickness, consistant smile lines, great apex, and shape. Good job!! :D

Hi Tess that is with a macro setting but I will see if I can get some better shots. I will get my hubby to take the shots.

Photo 1 (hand flat)
Smile lines are consistant and suited to clients natural shape - Free edge shape is inconsistant nail to nail - lines of light are consistant and straight from what I can see..

Photo 2 (side view of single nail)
Apex is too far forward, this should be exactly in the middle from free edge to cuticle area - Cuticle area bulges up slightly, recommend more blending to get rid of this 'step' - lower arch appears to be very soft (either file was brought under the free edge side or the shape has undercut the arch)

Photo 3 (looking at folded hand)
Most sidewalls are not dead straight (especially noticeable on middle finger, right side) I would suggest using a firm, thin board to come in a dead straight line down the length of the finger and really keep it upright ...

Overall, these are nice nails - and considering they are your first scultpts you have done very well, keep up the good work.
