I was growing tired of the round shape , also one of my fingers was not shape correctly . I decided to do a new set , I usually do short nails , but this time I cut the tips first and then applied them . I thought they would be pretty short , but they came out kind of long . I didn't want to cut them and lose my shape , so I left them long. It's taken a day to get used to typing , but so far so good.
I applied the quick dip application and after I filed the nails I put IBD builder gel over them to make them smoother . Infact I think instead of using the IBD builder gel I could have just used the risen , I'll try that on the next set or fill. I am hoping that the next time I change them it will be a color change or fills.
I think I still have some more practicing to do , but so far they look pretty decent . for this set I used a gold color from Salley Hansen , called Game of Chromes , and then applied a stamp from my Konad stamping plate in special polish black pearl. The design kind of reminds me of a fiesta , with the swirls and curves .
I decided to purchase a professional stamping kit and bought a starter kit from Reval , I seen some tutorials on youtube and it looks pretty easy to use . I paid $50.00 for the kit and I can't wait until it comes in the mail.
