New Pinky nail- Zoya Reece

Hi again Kids!
So sorry to be spamming today...I'm  really excited - not only did I get my Zoya order today (Reece, Adina, Happi, Maya & Jo), but my pinky nail turned out great using my new brush!!! What a difference!
AND- I did not apply nail tips...I used a nail form.

I had great results in using a form when I needed to extend a crooked sidewall. My natural nail doesn't have much of a c-curve, and with a form I can create a deeper one. In addition to aesthetics, I think a rounded c-curve takes some stress off the artificial nail making it stronger- and I don't feel like I have to apply the acrylic as thick.

This nail is just a test. I'm going to remove this after work because I *know* I can make this look better, more natural. Not bad though, eh?
Direct overcast-










For those that are interested, I use clear powder-










Shade overcast-
btw- all the little black specks you see when pictures are enlarged, is the grit from my black file

I think you did an awesome job on this nail.  I think the shape and length are more flattering on your fingers than your previous shape.  You did a lovely job and now you have more room for epic nail art!!

Really nice job.  I tried to do my nails years ago with acrylics.  The kits weren't so good then.  I made them hugely thick and misshapened.  I wrecked my natural nails because I couldn't get the darn things off.  I'm sure the at home kits have come a long way.  Your nail looks real and I also love that shade of polish.

Great job! I wish I could do this. I haven't tried yet!  I will check back in to see when you're done!

I'm having a giveaway if you're interested!

Really good job!  I prefer forms over tips when I do gel extensions.  I've never been able to get the hang of acrylic!  the color is so pretty too!
