Omg. This is mind blowing. I never think to do this. I’am always over thinking how to smoothen the underside and this is the solution. I love you so much.? kudos to you.

Ashley Jones

You're like the only person that i seen use paper and plastic to form a nail and now im going to try it. THANK YOU!!! YOURE A LIFE SAVER

Progress 14

Due to thin gel that was placed in the form, tendency is, the nail will easily peel off or crack right after.

Lidioane Martins

Com esse molde de papel evita ficar grosseiro por baixo?


Honestly... this shit take so much time. Better to di dip nails.

Morgan W

I was hoping you were gonna show the underside of the nail before you started filing... lol so I don’t know if it works or if you just filed the underside off camera ?‍♀️ And also, I thought if you used dual forms there shouldn’t be a tacky layer on top? ? Regardless.. it did come out nice! I’ll stick with regular forms when sculpting I just wanted to see if this really worked but I still don’t know haha

Mihaela Mihaylova

You didn’t show the c curve ? I was hoping to see, is it thick and sturdy enough

Tey Nails

Have perfect nails

Ms. Debbie aka Turquoise Diva

Fyi, this also works beautifully with regular acrylic. I stumbled about this a couple years ago. It makes true sculpted nails, like we did years ago that are much stronger, better and longer lasting then using tips.

How do you fix the part near the cuticle? Or you don't? :)

Steff Morgan

Shakey shakey

Ellynaurus X

Step 1: buff nail plate
Step 2: find nail sizes
Step 3: put builder gel on nail form
Step 4: put paper nail form on finger & cut sides properly
Step 5: apply plastic nail form with builder gel on top of nail & clean up sides with brush dipped in alcohol so it won’t stick
Step 6: cure, pop off & repeat all nails
Step 7: remove sticky layer with alcohol pad
Step 8: file any run over gel and into desired shape
Step 8: color/decorate/top coat & cure

I usually prime the nail with a pH primer before step 3, but I think that covers it.

I’m going to try this!! I think it might actually work faster than what I did before, which was only paper forms. So hard to get a smooth surface!

Couldn't help but notice that the base coat before applying the polygel step wasnt shown.


i tried this method but it didnt work because the dual forms i used were extremely curved and hit the paper forms:(


you're so good at nails.. these are perfect! thanks ♥

Patricia Savage

Oh snap thanks

Eviane Valeco

nossa how cute ??

Florencia Libedinsky

Idk... I think is mich quicker and easier to just use the paper form instead of both


Who many days stay to the nail..??

Dr Erin White

I feel that the underside would have been perfect even without the paper form.

Priscilla Negron- Carrasco

Paulette Fairfax

Rita Peralta

I have long natural nails too, probably a tiny bit shorter than yours in this vid and almond shaped. I don't have a curve but my both my pinky finger nails like bent inwards? same my middle right hand finger, it like grows on a left direction i used to hate it, i lear to accept it now :)


I love your nails!

Toby Redhead

How do you file down a dip in the nail bed? I have one that does that.

Candy's Garden

My nails are beginning to finally grow at my young age of 33 ;) & you definitely INSPIRE me to continue my nail growth. I've NEVER had my nails to where they're at, which is pretty long in my case, so it feels a bit weird & I just admire how long they are, but the nails you have in this video (which I know is from way back when) is what I'm trying to accomplish... I hope one day to have these long nails & if/when I do, I'll make a video & dedicated it to you, THANKS SO MUCH for these videos!!

Classically Averil

I have a heavy c curve. My thumb nails are the worst. The curve from both sides and look almond shap. When the grow really long they can become pointy. I can never have square nail. No matter how I file them the will always look almond shape. Because I have a heave c curve nail wraps just don't work for me, but my nails grows long and strong. So even though they are not perfect shape I love my long nails.

BL Meyer

LOVE YOUR BLOOPERS!!!! LMAO   they make you seem more real!!!!  LOVE IT  TFS!!!

Kaylee Lopez

Every one has that

Lei A

I wish my nails would curve more, they're pretty flat so when they grow out they tend to fan out a bit which doesn't look good imo..

Dianna P

You're an encyclopedia of knowledge!


My nails are just brittle and break all the time. I don't keep my hands in water or anything. I have no c curve my nails are dead flat I hate them.

Meabh TheSchnauzer

the curl makes hem strong, if they're flat..they bend.

Patriciukas_ Vlogs

i have a really strong C curve...

Amanda H

I have a favourite nail which is my favourite simply because it's got a less pronounced c curve lol. It looks the most square because the corners don't curl like the rest of them and it's super strong.

Phoebe Lightfoot

You are very helpful. Thank you.

Jojo evilchocobunny

I don't have problems with a c-curve but my nails grow downwards instead of straight, especially my index finger nails :C I cut them off and started using fake nails on those 2 nails because it's annoying ><


I want the curve.Mine look like duck feet

mantha raspberry

my nails are really weird, especially my thumbnail. they grow upwards and don't curve down??

Sees Nails

I've never had a problem with the C curve, but the actual nail twist really bothers me. My nails look deformed the longer they get. Especially my right index fingernail and my thumb nails. Very lovely video, TFS!

Cool Crafter

Hola! I was wondering if when they are curling ,when you cut them does it hurt?


What about when they’re extra long and start growing under in a spiral? Like those nails that are 7+inches long. Is that because of the matrix too? Or just because they are so long?

Syd K

I like the way your nails curl!

ASMR Cosmos

IMHO your nail c-curve is absolutely beautiful and your nails are absolutely beautiful!


Our nails are curvy. Get over it. It's not straight there's no need to explain anything.

Worldly Porcini

Hi Raquel, is there anything I can do to help my nails from hurting me? I've tried growing my nails but when they get to a certain length, not very long a good length, my C-curve is too curled and hurt my fingers. This mainly happens to my pointer and middle fingers.

Andreea West

I can't let my toe nails grow because it hurts me. So I never wear an open toe shoe :(

Lauren Reynolds D

Your nails are pretty I have spoon nails ugh hate them

Toby Redhead

My nails curl too. The problem is they curve on the sides of my nail bed too causing it to grow into the skin on my fingers.

Susan Hand

I am growing out my nails and I now can see the tips of my nail my nails chip and peel so I do a lot for them to keel them growing and I try not to take my polish of my nail cuz it can strip the nail all so I putt oil on my cuticles every time I take nail polish off and when I have polish on so I hope a pray my nails stay growing and never brake cuz my goal is to get them as long as I can in till I don't have them any more but it sure hurt's when I run in to things thank u I love you nails

Salma Tolba

I wish i had a c curve? they look REALLY nice and they avoid the splitting on from the sides? and they’re stronger that way

Clarissa Ramirez

Glenna Robinson

I have thin nails and I've noticed if I do a lot of daily driving (I grip the steering wheel to tightly) that my thumbs put pressure on my pointer fingers nail edge and it stays that way...sort of trains it. If I don't do that much driving they kind of look okay...not as much curving.

Wild Strawberry

Léa I.

I don't have any half moon on my nails..


I didn't even realize that some people have nails that don't have a side to side curve-don't fake nails even have a bit of curve to them? But then again it's not something I've really thought about much, now I want to see an example of a longer nail that doesn't curve

Sophie O.

I think the curve adds strength. My index finger nails are a bit flat, while my ring and pinky finger nails have the c curve. And those two are quite strong. While the index is rather weak.

Licia Lane

Ken Johnson

The story about you and a bad boy in a locked walk in closet where you swung your nails 60 arm swings per minute to tear bad boy up for 5 long minutes: The pleasure makes bad boys volunteer for it. Those over the head arm and nail swings like her twirling double dutch ropes to scratch those naked arms down ouch when she steps in to concentrate her nail swings from 7 feet scratch all five nails down to 2 or 3 feet till my knees bend!!!!!!!!!!!! She swings so fast, I can't move or do anything but back, back away after fifteen of her arm swings with five nails on each of her hands to cut skin and make me!!!!!!!????

janet the love

I grow my nails for 2 weeks now and your tips work verry good sorry for my bad english com from netherland☺️

When my nails grow they fan out so I wish they would curve a bit more.

Christina Willson

On my right hand my middle finger nail just on the one side of the nail dips down lower than the rest of my nail I can't stand it and I don't know if I can get rid of it it doesn't hurt i just don't like it and it also does it on my left same finger but it's not as noticeable as it is on my right

Julia Anderson

The index finger on my right hand doesn't curl, but the index finger on my left hand does curl and it makes me so mad because I love the curl

Creekside Homeschoolers

Having a C curve is great!! It helps keep the nails strong!! Have you ever seen a nail tech pinch while doing a set of acrylic with their fingers or a tool. They do this to give structure and strength to the nail enhancement. I have 2 nails on each hand that have a great natural c curve all the rest are more flat or only curve on one side.

Hema Malini

i have got long nails and except my thumb finger all the rest of them are curled. i absolutely hate that curve..wish there was some way to get rid of it and have those adorable flat nails ? ..


Great video!!! I have the same and I find after washing my hands In warm water it straightens out.
