So happy I just had to share...

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.

Hi Wanita, thanks for the comments :D
I'm more than happy to answer your questions, so here goes....

These are scuptured acrylics using Young Nails products.
For this look I used YN Cover Pink Acrylic Powder for the beds and YN Speed Clear Acrylic Powder mixed with a purple craft glitter for the tips.
These nail beds are extended using the cover pink, I should of posted a before photo, because they are naturally small nail beds. I use Young Nails Forms and can't fault them.
To create the crisp smile lines I use the reverse method ( pinks first) then I use the Young Nails Diamond File to perfect the curve.
These are my own hands, so took a lot longer than they would if I were doing them on a client. On a client they take me about 1.5 hrs, but on my self it can take me that long to do one hand :lol:

Hope that helps, any other questions feel free to ask. :D

Dont be silly, I can hardly call it my idea. Have fun creating them, I can't wait to see your pics.
If your not sure about the Young Nails reverse method, check out their videos on youtube, they are great. Not as good as a one on one workshop with a young nails mentor but they will be a big help.
