    Best tips

    I am halfway through my CND Foundation course and I would say I have learnt that you should only use the tips that your chosen system sells, (that's not to say you CANNOT use others) but I think you get the best result for your Client this way and can then give them the guarantee that what they...

    Bridal makeup

    I would definitely recommend Airbase. It's flawless and really does last all day - I had this put on at a show (and also tried it myself at home) purposely slept in it and woke up with a perfect base on. Definitely a great investment - and you are 100% safe in the knowledge that when doing...

    Is Minx REALLY that expensive?

    Why don't you all set up a group (or whatever it is you need to do) and if you are doing more fingers and not so much toes, swap with others who do lots of toes and not fingers? Problem solved.....for now :D

    Clean & Easy Roller Waxing Temperature

    I've had this happen in the past - have you cleaned the skin properly before applying the wax? Make sure you use the pre-clean and if still unsure smooth on a little talc. I've also changed from the paper type strips to the fabric strips and am much happier using those - it was only with the...

    Sukar Sugar Paste

    This is the white tub with the black writing - I'll give it a go - and when I get in a mess I will just kindly gift it all to my mother-in-law! I would like to point out I'm not planning on using this on my clients - it was purely for my mother-in-law as she has been after this for years -...

    Sukar Sugar Paste

    Ohh thanks - so you just dig into the tub and gouge it out? It seems very tacky/sticky. I watched a video on Utube and somebody applied oil to their fingers before rolling around in the palm of the hand? Wasn't sure if oil would spoil the paste? So I don't heat it up then? Thanks for...

    Mobile beauty name and advice

    Hi, when thinking about a business name think of how you want to be perceived. Do you want to be luxurious, "pink and girly" or straight to the point? Write down a load of words you would want associated with your business and then work around that.... i.e. Unique - which could then become...

    Sukar Sugar Paste

    I have just taken delivery of a few tubs of this paste. It says its the original hand sugaring paste - but the tub says it has to be at 40 degrees to use. Having never used sugaring before I wonder if anyone can advise me on how I go about it? I bought the paste primarily for my...

    New eve taylor skin candles???

    The candles are great to have lit when carrying out manicure/pedicure. You can then finish the treatment with a massage using the softened wax from the candle (and so demonstrating to the Client how fab they are!) - the Client's love the smell and then you can offer them for sale! They have a...
