    What are three things you will never forget?

    1.You must always get your forms on correctly otherwise your application may have weak points

    2.You barely touch hard gel you are not pushing it around more like gently encouraging it

    3.How much I enjoy hard gel more than acrylics

    What advice would you give to a newbie starting this Module?
    Hard gel is much more fun!!!! I absolutely love it…Not really advice but if you struggled with acrylics maybe this is your thing I definitely thinks its mine

    1. Admin bar avatar

      Hard Gel is definitely fun! And if you work really hard on application, you won’t have to file 😉

  5. What are three things you’ve absolutely nailed in this Module?

    1. Tapering in and redoing a lot of the surface filing after sculpting a square nail and filing it into another shape

    2. Oval is definitely my best shape to file

    What are three things you really need to continue to work on?
    1. Keeping my file at the right angle to achieve the perfect straight free edge for squares and coffins

    2.Visualising that the length is or isn’t consistent across all nails, including the thumbs

    What are three things that really surprised you?

    1. Its quite easy to change shapes with filing but not always ideal

    2. the visual of a sculpted shape vs a sculpted square filed into a shape – how different they are in terms of structure and strength

    What are three things you will never forget?

    1. Shapes are equally about aesthetic and strength, so structure must be maintained as much as possible

    2. Check, check and check again for consistency

    3. Wonky sculpting can’t be filed away and will lead to wonky shaping.

    What advice would you give to a newbie starting this Module?

    1. Definitely give this a go both in filing and with sculpting to see which method you prefer

  6. What are three things you’ve absolutely nailed in this Module?

    1. most shapes should be sculpted in

    2. shapes with a curve are the strongest

    3. remember that the forms need to be applied correctly for the right shaoe

    What are three things you really need to continue to work on?
    1. sculpting stilettos and coffins

    2. getting perfect structure for each shape

    3. making the nail as strong as possible

    What are three things that really surprised you?

    1. filing in a shape loses a lot of the important structure

    2. that stilletto is one of the strongest shapes

    3. stilletos structure is underneath the enhancement

    What are three things you will never forget?

    1. to keep checking for consistancy, and add more product if needed

    2. square breaks easily because the corners get caught

    3. stilleto and coffin look best on longer enhancements to give the full effect

    What advice would you give to a newbie starting this Module?

    1. PRACTISE!!!

    1. Nice job Jayde! Great you’re thinking about the strength of your enhancement as well as how it looks.
