    Gelez any problems?

    Have you got the new 'grip' base coat or the original base coat? If original, get a grip one which will make all the difference.

    It really depends on who you do your training with as to your prep procedure. Some teach dry prep, others use a cuticle removing product. I push back the eponichium, remove the non living tissue from the nail plate then lightly remove the shine from the nail using a soft file.

    Tool Roll

    I'm looking for a tool roll (a bit like a hairdressers belt but not with a belt bit!?!). Can anyone recommend where to get one? I don't want one which just has elastic to hold the tools in, ich I want one whis enclosed at the bottom (if that makes sense?) Thanks geeks!
