Orly Nail Forms Make Application Easy

by NAILS Staff | February 9, 2019

Orly GelFX Perfect Fit Forms are designed to support the ease of application. The forms have a rounded shape under the free edge and square sides that allow for precision application, while the proper amount of adhesive helps prevent the forms from popping open, eliminating the need to adjust or reposition during services. The forms are printed and positioned on the roll so that when dispensed, they adapt to the natural curvature of the finger without excess shaping. The competition-style forms allow you to customize your clients’ nails to their desired length, whether they want long extravagant nails or a more natural length.
