I recently did some experimenting with gel polish (which is a slightly different medium than shellac) and tips. I prepped my nails, applied tips and shaped them. I filed them smooth with my natural nail and painted them with four coats of curable gel polish. I was so excited with how this set turned out in terms of integrity (art too). They were no different (or so it seemed to me) than a full gel sculpt! Best part, no filing! Wahoo!
I really wanted long stilettos like RiRi or Lana, however find them totally impractical. This was the longest I could manage my nails to be. Don’t laugh!
