How do I backfill the white tip with silk wraps?


I have a client who wants silk wraps with a white tip. Please tell me how to backfill the white tip with silk wraps.


There is no way to backfill the white tip on silk or fiberglass wrap nails since there is only the clear fabric. The best advice I can give is to remove the grown-out tip by soaking in acetone and apply a new set using new white tips and removing most of the free edge. — Gail Crawford is national education manager for Backscratchers Salon Systems.
