Smile Line


Definition of Smile Line

  1. The smile line is that (usually) curved line where the whites of your nails begin, where nail bed ends and the free edge begins. As with the c-curve, some people have more pronounced smile lines than others, and they’re not always the same shape/depth on every nail. The smile line can also refer to the line created (to mimic an actual smile line) when doing a french manicure or other tip designs.
