So there are obviously a few companies that sell these type of soft gel full cover tips.
However, at quite an expense, I have tried the major players, but the combo that I have put together means I can have my nails LONG long, And type all day, and do the dishes - and these tips are hardy and hold the tests I put them through on the daily.
I use the;
Nail Prep - then the Primer - then one thin coat of Base Gel (cure for 60 in my LED lamp). I then apply a thin coat of "Press on Gel" (in either clear or pink) on the natural nail - don't cure - then on the tip (that I have previously etched out with an efile on the underside) I apply a thin coat to cover where I the nail bed will cover. Then I add a little bit more in the middle at the cuticle edge side - then I apply the tip, making sure not to allow any bubbles to appear.
I use the Flashy LED torch/lamp to set the nail for about 15 secs, then I complete the whole hand and then cure in the LED lamp for 60 secs.
It is CRUCIAL that you make sure you have prepared the natural nail properly though and removed any dead cuticle or hang nails.
After the nails have cured, you need to make sure that there isn't a "lip" near the cuticle, smooth it down. Lightly buff the surface of the tip and then apply your colour.
Don't clean the top of the tip with IPA before colour though, because the tip needs to be rough for the gel polish to adhere properly.
I get them in the coffin, and then turn them into an almond. I find I get the best lower arch with these tips, so they are more balanced (despite the extra length) and they literally last me till I have to remove them because they're too long.
You can't go past THIS style of tip - no lie - it is thebomb.com
123go what can I say, have blown me away! A nail tech of 10yrs and always worn acrylics these babies are amazing!!!
First time using the 123go nails and it was super easy to apply with the gel underneath. Nails have been on for 2 weeks no with no lifting or issues. Very impressed with the shape of the short coffin style as I wasn't after nails that were too long. Can't wait to keep using this system!!
