What is the best way to achieve perfect smile lines?
There are two ways of achieving smile lines: Traditional application and Reverse application. The fastest and easiest way to learn is by mastering the Reverse technique. This is a Young Nails trademarked technique that had proven successful around the world. The greatest benefit of the technique is cleanliness. Glitter or colored powder can be applied without worrying about whether it will get on the nail bed. You are guaranteed a faster and sharper look all the time!

The right size of pearl is about half the size of the nail plate. Placing the product at the cuticle area and letting it run towards the free edge is going to guarantee proper thickness at the stress area. You can get the product to self-level toward the stress area if the finger is pointing down. If you are looking down the barrel of the nail after the application, the thickness should be the same across from side to side.

Finding the perfect consistency depends on how much liquid-to-powder is mixed. Getting a controlled application can prevent the product from running or drying too quickly. If there is too much liquid, press the back of the brush onto the paper towel for 1 second to remove any extra liquid. The pearl should not have any dry powder around the edges before application. If it’s too wet, the product will stick to the brush while pressing it into place. You should be able to press the product perfectly into place without the product sticking to the brush, running into the cuticles, or drying before bonding to the natural nail.

When performing a particular service in the salon, a nail technician may attempt to use one application to perform multiple tasks for which the application was unintended. Knowing which application to use on a client in any given situation can pose challenging questions. Most nail technicians will find that one application technique is insufficient to accommodate every situation. Young Nails will help you explore and understand in these situations, which techniques have proven effective and which have, after years of trial and error, failed to prove successful. Are acrylic nails the best choice in this situation? Or would gel be a better choice? Perhaps a combination of both? Remember, if a nail technician chooses the proper approach the first time, he or she will save time and win the loyalty of the client. Success has always been built upon a foundation of knowledge.
