I like to use opaque pink acrylic to elongate the nail bed, but when it comes time for a fill, I have trouble blending the acrylic. Any suggestions?

A.

When you apply the original full set, use your opaque pink very thin and cap the entire nail in clear. This gives the appearance of a more natural nail. Then when you go back to fill the nail, you will use a thin layer of pink again, capping it in clear. This allows you to thin the acrylic down and blend it to the nail. Then you can use a very thin coat of opaque pink again and cap it in clear. This will allow you to eliminate the lines much more easily. — Gari-Dawn Tingler is director of education for AII.
