    Disclaimers

    Hi ForYou, Disclaimers are a tricky subject, there are a number of different issues with them.

    Speeding up acrylic

    If you want to practice but are struggling to find models or clients then why not buy a nail training hand? Practice is what will bring your time down. I don't think 2.5 hours is bad after having only be doing nail extensions for 4 months. Em

    Training with Sallys - any good?

    Thank you for the advice. I think the 5/6 treatments with a % off is a very good idea.

    Will I ever get quicker?

    It takes time, as others have said be more concerned initially with the quality and then work on the time. Try breaking the areas down i.e. PREP, tips/sculptures, application of L&P etc. Time yourself and then set your self goals. Keep calm and keep going :)

    Do you fit form and build one free edge at a time, or fit all and build all?

    I fit forms on four finger of one hand and complete these nails up until the final filing stage and the repeat on the second hand, I then finish by doing the same on the thumbs, then file and buff to a shine or put top coat/nail art on! HTH :)

    Best gel system

    I would advise either CND Brisa gel if you are looking for a buff off gel or biosculpture gel for a soak off gel. I offer both and they are both brilliant products, both companies provide excellent training and troubleshooting :) Hope this helps
