Nail Forms & Fitting Techniques
An important part to sculpting with a nail form is to ensure a proper fit.
The strength of a sculpted nail is only as strong as the fit of the form.
Before applying the form to your finger or your client's finger, try rolling your C-Curve into place. Approach the nail with your curved form and place it under the free edge of the nail. Place the bottom tabs together in the front and back evenly and then squeeze the bottom tabs tight. Squeeze the top of the nail form along your finger or client's finger, this will help you create a very tight fit.
A fitted form should look like the images below.
Some of the things to look for and check:
* Is the form straight?
* Is it tight to eliminate seepage?
* Are you happy with your C-Curve?
