1. Choose metal or plasticThere are two types of nail forms: paper and metal. While the paper shapers are less expensive and have a bit more flexibility with manipulating the nail curve, they can only be used once or twice, and they can be a little tricky to adhere correctly. A metal nail form can be used multiple times and is a little easier to use, but it's less flexible.
2. Position your nail form correctlyAccording to The Beauty Academy, one of the most important steps is to make sure that your tips are positioned correctly. The edge of the form should sit under the front of your nail, and there should be no gaps between the nail and the form.
3. Careful with your thicknessWhen mixing your acrylic, make sure that you don't make the mixture too thick. If it is too thick, the extension could pull away from the nail.
4. Blend carefullyThe nail form creates a shape for you to follow, so you don't have to be too worried about getting the right shape. However, be extra careful with your blending, especially where your nail meets the extension. Blend carefully to build strength and avoid bumps, according to Nailbees.
5. Care for your nail formIf you opt for a metal nail form, just use nail polish remover or acetone to clean any residue away. Paper forms should only be used on one person and can be tossed after one or two uses.
6. Tip or FormDecide whether a form extension or a pre-made tip works better for you. Tips may be a little easier to apply, but they add more pressure to the top of the nail. Form extensions are more customizable. Many people find that they last longer as well.
