    Which Shellac colour would be suitable?

    For a soft navy I’d suggest indigo frock and for the pink, possibly pink pursuit although it is more peach/pink but still has a neutral tone. Alternatively you could try layering to create a new colour altogether x

    Manicures/pedicures at residential homes?

    I think the biggest challenge you will face with this age group will be a) their mobility and b) contra indications. I often find older people will struggle to lift feet in and out of pedi bowls unaided, and may struggle to relax their hands due to health conditions. You will also find they are...

    Shellac bubbles problem!

    Hello! I have experienced this exact thing with a client of my own recently - it is not happening with any other clients so i can rule out the cause being down to product or application. They appear with an hour or 2, and disappear as quickly as they came. My CND LED lamp is brand new and I...

    L&P course provider

    I trained with CND and I cannot fault their training. It’s detailed, and hands on so you get a good amount of both theory and practical knowledge.

    Regular polish - best brand?

    I second CND Vinylux - coverage is perfect, application is super quick as it doesn’t require a base coat (and I’ve never experienced staining) and it lasts beautifully! X
