NSI Stiletto Nail Forms Make Sculpting Easy

by NAILS Staff | January 20, 2018

NSI’s Secrets Stiletto Nail Forms have been redesigned to be an easy-to-use learning tool for techs of all skill levels. The versatile design features two sculpting grids — one that can be used for traditional nail shapes and one that can be used for alternative nail shapes. Easy-to-follow numbers are visible when looking down the front or side of the form, helping to keep the nail length and shape consistent from nail to nail. The forms also include a helpful indication mark to show you exactly where to cut the form to achieve a less extreme length. The forms are ideal for sculpting any alternative nail shape, like the stiletto, edge, gothic almond, and lipstick shapes, and can also be used for traditional nail shapes. Their long length makes them great for sculpting longer enhancements without doubling up forms.
