The difference is, instead of just using a pink acrylic, they put a white acrylic on the top (where your french tip would be) and a pink at the bottom, this obviously prevents the chipping of the white polish or air brush. And I really rate it, it is worth paying the extra to have nails that go the two weeks without being all chipped and horrible.
However, yesterday, I fancied a change, I felt like having a colour put on my nails instead of the usual pink and white. So I got them to put the normal pink acrylic on, and paint them. This was the outcome...
They are shorter than what I would normally have or what I would have liked, but the guy in the salon was a bit clipper happy, and once they're short, there's not a lot you can do. My boyfriends first comment when he saw them was "they're really short". But having a colour on my nails, it probably is best to have them shorter, where as if I had white tips, I'd want them longer.
Anyway, it's change, and of course I can change the colour of them myself, with my many polishes I showed you in my collection post.
I'll probably get bored and go straight back to white tips, but this is them for now.
