    Gel top coat for acrylics

    Hiya I wanted to know what everyone uses for top coat on top of nail polish. Some of my ladies who have acrylics want normal nail polish, and as we know it takes ages to dry.

    Loyalty card - am I too generous, any feedback?

    I'm thinking of reducing it to either 20 or 25% on their 7th treatment. I shot myself in the foot as I was doing 50% off on what ever they had done. My mistake. I'm going to honour everyone's up until they finish their cards once they get their 7th one half price. Then when I start a new...

    Loyalty card - am I too generous, any feedback?

    Hi geeks I'm been having a little re-think on my loyalty cards too. I over 6 treatments and 7th 50% off. I only do nails, manicures & pedicures. I'm finding clients wait till their 7th treatments and go out out,I've spent a good few hours and it's half price I'm not making much. I'm a very...

    How much do you charge for CND Additives?

    Hi all What do you all charge for additives? I'm currently charging £5 on top of CND Shellac. They are non-movers in my salon, I've actually stopped buying them now. Am I charging too much?

    Thank you!

    Which path to take?

    Yes I know that, but I can manage them around my work. I'm going to try to get 4 days work. Maybe dedicate a day for my clients. Trying to do all of the treatments myself will be too much, especially as I'm not really keen on waxing or massage. I've already got tennis elbow which will get worse...

    Working from home?

    Yes it's a home based nail salon. I don't want to hire any staff neither do I want a high at salon. That's why after doing the figures, and looking at pros & cons it's better for me to go back to work. I will still keep doing nails as its my passion.

    Which path to take?

    Thank you KattyB for your reply. As much as I love my business, in reality when I weight everything up it just won't earn me a decent wage. I will still keep my business going just doing nails. Not going to add other services that I don't really enjoy and would have only done for the sake of...

    Working from home?

    Yes I was looking at offering threading, waxing & massage. But the figures don't add up in my favour.

    Which path to take?

    Hi I did evenings & weekends and it was very hard after a full day's work. Ideally I would have wanted to go part time and build in my business, but I wasn't given the part time hour and I was so fed up of the job. That's what hubby said if I go the HR route I would have to go full time. That...

    Working from home?

    I work from a home salon. Was doing evenings & weekends initially then stopped my full time job last year June. My client base has increased and I'm looking into adding more services now. The clients are all word of mouth.

    Going from full time employed to renting a room

    Hi I started my salon while I was working full time. It's a home based salon. I found I got busy after leaving work as I had the flexibility to work during the day. Thinking of adding more services to my nail salon. I do believe what a lot of ladies told me on here, it takes between 3-5...
