  1. I can’t even get anyone here to do a sculpted nail. The last salon I went to told me that sculpted nails were too weak and wouldn’t even do them. The problem is all the salons here are way more concerned with how many people they can get in and out. Quantity over quality. Because that’s how they make money.

  2. Hell we can't even get a sculpted nail. They don't do forms just tips. They all suck. They just get u in and throw u out.

  3. It's all about the foundation and the structure of it! I'm learning a lot thank you Kirsty!! I love the metaphor example with the paper.

  4. Schade das du keinen deutschen Untertitel zeigst, ich schaue dich sehr gerne, aber mein English ist echt nicht gut 😥

  5. Hiiii! Awesome video! Could you please tell me what brush you’re using? I’m really struggling to find a hood brush

  6. Is there anyway to correct a DIP powder nail that has already set in which you had forgot to pinch this one fingernail out of entire set without having to Remove all product and start way from beginning again?! Ughh been looking everywhere online and so far haven’t found a single video or article or even discussion on this scenario! Please share your expert advice if can think
    Of anything

  7. Hi Kirsty/fellow nail techs – please help! I'm curious about design work that goes thin clear sculpt to thin design, to capped in clear. Where does pinching come into that process? I don't want to break the thin layers but it seems a bit late to do the pinch once they've been capped? Thanks in advance for any advice.

  8. Thank you! I've been learning how to do my own nails and came upon a UK blog that mentioned pinching. I hadn't heard of it. I googled, your video came up first. New follower. And I agree, I have never seen a US salon do this. I love it. When I can I am buying this. Btw I love your hair.

  9. This is amazing! I've been getting my nails done for 16 years and I've NEVER had my nails pinched! Thank you for the insight!

  10. Thank you so much for explaining this technique, when you explain it like that especially with the paper, it makes so much sense. I love your tutorials & I'm so pleased I found your posts. Well done Kirsty, you're a great teacher. xx ❤️💅😍

  11. I did this on a lady who was newer to me and she pulled her hand back and said "what are you doing? The asians don't do that." I have no idea how to respond.

  12. This is something they know nothing about in the states. They need to be trained on it. Thanks for the video! Your work is amazing, best I've seen in years

  13. I must admit I am SO frustrated. I have searched all my local nail salon and NONE will pinch! :'( so so so sad!

  14. I remember being taught to pinch because it creates a C curve and C = Cash! Make them come back again and again.
