    Insurance costs

    I am self employed doing nails and some beauty and work from my external home salon. I have been insured with abt (full coverage) for around 5yrs and my renewal has just through for £73 and I'm wondering price wise how it compares to other insurers? Many thanks xx

    Glitter & gels

    I always put another coat over glitters,foils etc,but not if just colour or painted designs and cure topcoat as per brands recommendations.

    Glitter & gels

    I do as you do,using a separate top coat for glitters,so as not to contaminate my topcoat. I finish with a second coat of topcoat though,to give a smoother finish.

    Gel wrinkling over acrylic

    When I apply gellux over acrylics,I rough the surface up a bit so not smooth,wipe with prep to remove any dust or oils,THEN I apply a coat of fast bond,before two thin coats of colour and top coat.....if I don't apply the fast bond,they peel off in hours!! [emoji16]
