What are Reverse tips and how to use them
What are reverse tips???
Reverse tips were specifically made to be used with AcrylGel/PolyGel. Instead of applying AcrylGel on top of the tips , with reverse tips we are applying product inside of the tips. The goal is to form the perfect nail inside of the tips that can be placed on top of the natural nail, providing a smooth nail that requires minimal extra. Reverse tips are typically made of plastic and look like full cover nails. They are reusable, usually come in a box with different sizes, square or almond shape.
What should be considered when fitting the reverse tips?
It is recommended using reverse tips that are slightly wider than natural nails – this allows the side of reverse tips to cover down the sides of nails completely.
Always apply small amount of the products to avoid any access to run to the cuticle.
Stick tips going from cuticle area towards the edge of the nail
Stick tips firmly to avoid any bubbles
Why is it imperative to fit forms and tips perfectly?
What will happen if they are not fitted correctly?
