Gina Silvestro demonstrates application techniques for a full set of sculptured nails on a reformed nail biter using Akzentz Proformance Gel, available early 2014. Two weeks prior, Silvestro did a gel manicure on the biter's nails to allow them to heal and grow before soaking them off and applying the sculptured set. "As they grow out and we fill them, they will take on a much more natural shape. We are planning to do a new video every two weeks to follow the transformation!" Silvestro says.
