Gelish: Zebra Tips

Ruth wanted French tips with zebra stripes:

I used Gelish Ambience for the base and Gelish Sheek White for the tips, with Gelish Black Shadow for the stripes.

Actually, her right index finger (which would be on your left) is an extension. She usually has very short nails (no free edge) but managed to keep them long, which is why she wanted French tips this time… But one of them broke just before our appointment, so we did an extension for it!

Acrylic extensions are actually great for Ruth because of her nail structure – her nails grow downwards instead of straight out, and also grow into a point instead of having straight side walls. With acrylic extensions, I can “restructure” the nails by building straight side walls and correcting the arch. Can you see the difference between her right index finger and her other nails?
