    Acrylic first attempt

    I would advise wait for your course. There’s more to nails than banging out a shape. You need to learn about safety for yourself and the client, how to prep properly and build a nail that not only looks good with correct proportions but that will last - it’s relatively easy to “do” a nail but...

    Lashes that don’t lift?

    If the lashes are coarse you can usually tell because you have trouble sticking them to the shield, because they keep springing up. With the system i use there is some flexibility with timing and with these lashes i usually leave them the maximum amount of time.

    Nailtiques - where to buy?

    Needle-less fillers

    I’m waiting until I see (somewhere) before and after pics of this treatment .... not immediately after as a lot of it is swelling, but say six weeks after.

    Lvl lash lift

    LVL is a brand. I’ve had it done and it’s identical to the lash lifts I’ve done since training using Lash Base, I’ve also used Salon Systems which is equally brilliant. I think if you follow the instructions they all work. Some brands like Elleebanna require shorter developing times but I have...

    How to safely dispose of glue

    Silly question but given that a small spillage of nail glue can result in it heating up and even smoking, how do I dispose of a bottle of glue that has so much stuck round the top that the lid won’t do up? I can’t just tip it into the bin or onto paper. Unsure how to dispose, can anyone help? Thanks

    Newbie looking for advice and chat

    Fab advice here and I don’t really have anything to add! Just wanted to say I retrained when my kids were small at the age of 37, built up my nail business and then after 12 years of just nails started to diversify with lash lifts and facials etc and now have a full service menu and am working...

    Being asked for prize donations to raffles

You have to be careful and look after your business because nobody else will. I have to say about 50% of vouchers given away are...
