prescription nails - 11-02-08, 09:08 PM

Hi peeps

Its my first picture so i am a little nerves

I used full cover nails. They are not made with acrlics. Thet already are ready to glue on to the nail. I used red and green nailpolish. the green nailpolish are neon so when the black light is on you see them glow.

Let me know what you think please

A lovely design, but I am not too happy to see stick on nails being shown on this site. We are professionals and we do not use stick on nails!

By stick on i dont mean the ones that you can buy. I am also a proffesional as you all are. I make nails with gel. These nails are used in holland for the ones who are allergic to acrylic. This way they still can have nails.
You preper the natural nail the same way when you use tips. The only thing is that there is no gel or acrylic. You cant buy them in the store but be a proffesional to buy them. You will need a workshop for this.

Sorry but they are still nails that you glue onto the whole of the nail plate, i don't see how these are any good at all for the natural nail,
clients will still prise these off or glue them back on with no sanitation.
i can see the place for them with peeps that can not use any of the systems but usually one of the systems can be used with careful elimination.

Prescription nails are a professional product.

While they aren't exactly my preference at least they expect education for you to use them.

Bubbles- I would of preferred to see them without the polish as well.

Thank you beauty nails

Its not the same way as nails being done in the salon but its used in salons here in holland. Brides who wants to have beautifull nails for the big day or people who wants to have it don ones are having these nails. The nails have to be prepered very well before the are glued on. You will need thicker glue and its specialy made for these kind of nails. There are allot of tips you can use. The have already the appex so they dont have to be build anymore.

More pictures about how they look like are comming later.

Whilst I still dont like the idea of glued on nails, I do like the design, but I also think its nice that others can freely express their opinions.

i agree with you regarding people expressing their opinion,
what i dont agree with is the way they do it!

to say they look "chav like" is derogatory

would have been better to have worded it in a nicer way in my honest opinion

this is this posters first time at posting a picture, and we all know how nerve wracking that can be!!

Hi

First of all its good to have a oppinion. Only some people can,t handle other ways to help clients who don,t have the luxury by having acrylic nails. Its not that i want to replace the art of making nails we all have learned but i think we also have to think about the ones who are having this problem.

On the other hand here in the netherlands we never have heard of poppits. Its not my cup of thea but i respect the idea. If its done by first learning how to apply it and learn the product than i dont see why not.

I love making nails from scratch. Its an art and i love it.

prescription nails - 17-02-08, 12:38 AM

I have to say that I have used these nails for almost 3 years and I love them. They are called prescription nails because the nail tech uses a nail sizer to measure the nails and then writes the tip sizes on a client card that comes in the kit. there are over 128 different sizes. The tech prescribes the size that fits. I put someone in my book every 30 mins. and make way more money! I love to decorate them and then put them on. My nail art on my own nails is way more detailed and perfect because I can put the nail on an orange wood stick with some sticky gum and decorate untill my hearts content! It's way harder to do nail art after you put your nails on.

This does not mean these are for everyone. There is no nail that fits every clients needs.

I did have a problem with thier glue, and switched to creative gel bond glue. You have to use a gel glue. The prescription nail glue is to strong for long term use, and botherd some of my clients.
I love sharing with you all! There are so many ways to do beautiful nails. And if someone has clients that are happy with a praticular nail than ther must be something to it! My modo is don't knock it till ya tried it!!!!!!!!!!!
I also use cnd, and ezflow. Love it!!!

You are 100% right - it is good to have opinions and to be able to have debates about different methods, and I for one am really pleased that you have shared

On the other hand here in the Netherlands we never have heard of pop pits. Its not my cup of tha but i respect the idea. If its done by first learning how to apply it and learn the product than i don't see why not.

Poppits are cool IMHO - I had the opportunity to have them applied in a demo with our fantastic Gigi, I still struggle with them but that is me NOT THE PODUCT and I would always refer back to the fab way in which Gigi (geeg) applied them if asked.

I love making nails from scratch. Its an art and i love it.
