How can you keep lines from showing once you do a fill?

Q.

How can you keep lines from showing once you do a fill? I have used a fill line eraser, but they still seem to show.

A.

This can be a problem if we don’t blend existing acrylic to the natural nail. If a line is visible during your prep, blend it with a file, taking special care not to file on the natural nail. If you have any doubt that the line is completely blended, spray the nails with an antiseptic spray. This will make a line visible that you might not otherwise be able to see. This line will also show through if you are using a transparent acrylic. If this is an ongoing problem, one option is to fill the nail with an opaque pink acrylic that will prevent fill lines from showing. -- Joey Brown
