NAIL FAQS BLOG: How to get a Crisp Smile-Line

NAIL FAQS BLOG: How to get a Crisp Smile-Line

Tammy Taylor Nails
"Where Nails are Always Fun and Never Feel Like Work"

When doing Pink & White
Acrylic Nails, the Pink Acrylic can run onto your White Free-Edge, causing your White Free-Edge to have a pink cast to it, and making your Smile-Line blurry instead of crisp.

Q: What is the "Secret" to eliminate a blurry Smile-Line?

Surface Tension is the #1 Secret.
Also, it is important to remember: Don't Place the Pink Acrylic Ball too close to the White Free-edge, and don’t make your Pink Acrylic too thick.

Q: How do I get "
Surface Tension"?


Tammy Taylor Pink and White Smile Line Step 1
  • "Place" the Pink Acrylic Ball on the Nail-Bed; leaving a gap between the Pink & the White.
  • Do "Not" Touch the White Free-Edge when Placing your Pink Acrylic Ball.

  • "Stroke" your Pink Acrylic Ball using long strokes, stroke right over the top of the White Free-Edge.
  • The "Surface Tension". on the Pink Acrylic Ball will keep the Pink from running onto the White.
  • Finish your Pink and White Acrylic Nails by applying 2 more Pink Acrylic Balls; Place one at the Cuticle Area and Stroke it out, then Place the other one at the Stress Area and Stroke it out.
  • The Tammy Taylor Powders used: Whitest White Nail Powder on the Free-Edge and True Pink on the Nail-Bed.

Have a Great Nail Day,

Business Blog: Improvement is "Daily" and "Continuously"

Every day, we learn and the important thing is what we do with what we learn.
Do we set aside the things we learn and continue on status quo, or do we take the things we learn and improve "Daily" and "Continuously"...

"All men make mistakes, but only wise men learn from their mistakes."


Winston Churchill

When I first started my business, I was only 18 years old, and I had no experience; so I had to learn everything through "Trial and Error"; making mistakes, and then "not repeating the same mistake".

I feel that making mistakes is good for a business, and I have always kept this same philosophy even with my employees; I encourage them to make mistakes because it is one of the best ways to learn but...
I discourage making the same mistake "twice" (as this will hurt a business).

"The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing."


John Powell

I look at creating nails and building a business as a continuous work in progress.
I feel the day we start thinking "This is good enough", and we "Stop Learning", it will be the day we start getting bored, and getting bored can ruin a business; it stifles creativity and motivation.

Even now, after 29 years of doing nails and running my own business, I am still learning and improving "Daily" and "Continuously".
And, having FUN!

With love,
Tammy Taylor
