You will learn how to:

  • Do an enhanced basic manicure using Sculpt X
    • It is the perfect in-between product: more flexible than your standard builder gel but stronger than just gel polish
    • Allows you to still build short extensions with it, and do a slight rebalance!
  • Correctly prep the natural nails to prevent lifting and chipping
  • Use different E-File bits
  • Get perfect color application around the cuticles with both gel polish & gel paint
  • Build a short extension using Sculpt X
    • Clients that need more than just a gel polish but not quite full gel nails
    • Clients that get excessive lifting issues with builder gels
    • Clients with badly damaged nails
    • Clients that only want short nails
  • Do a E-File Russian Manicure for that picture-perfect manicure.
  • Proper form placement for:
    • Perfect Square
    • Round/Oval
    • Coffin
    • Salon Almond
  • Form customization
  • Proper structure for different shapes
  • Rebalance (reconstructing a nail without removing & re-sculpting it) on falling/clawed nails
    • Fix missing edges or corners without a form
