    Hi Zoe, Your inbox is full so I'll post here instead:) I'm having difficulty finding a brilliant intimate wax trainer in Scotland. Currently in the salon we use Perron Rigot wax and the girls go to a local training provider (who sell Australian body care wax). I would like to further their...

    Gelish at sallys for sale to the public!!

    Are Harmony suggesting Joe Public prep their own nail plate - ie etch? If so, i do feel that is a bit dodgy. Its going to be interesting to see how this pans out, it might work out ok in the long run especially in the UK. We seem to have a population of people who mostly 'dont' have their...

    No problem, you're welcome:) Dont worry about the grief, you weren't at all out of order and I dont think you deserved some of the attitude you got from NH particularly!! how rude considering how supportive you've been of Gelish on this forum.

    Much call for sculpted nails?

    I hear you all, and i still disagree:) - thats allowed remember. I think spending the time it takes to become an expert sculptor is EXPENSIVE - time is money in this business - we all know that! Its not necessary to spend that time learning the really difficult skill of sculpting (dont...

    Much call for sculpted nails?

    Sorry for late return to this thread, hectic couple of weeks! I really did mean it when I said that for business reasons sculpting isnt necessary. Yes I can sculpt, it took me ages to learn how to do it - I spent far longer learning how to do this than I should have done! As it turns out, if...

    Much call for sculpted nails?

    I think loads of techs do things just for the fun of it!! Its my opinion that sculpts dont look better than tips, and I also think that spending all the time that is required to learn sculpting is a waste of effort if you are doing it for a business reason - its just not necessary. Each to...

    Much call for sculpted nails?

    I can sculpt and do so occasionally for a repair of a chip but that is the most I do with sculpting. In my opinion tips are better looking, easier to work with, stronger and quicker. No contest. Personally I wouldnt spend much time trying to master the art of sculpting unless you just like...

    New to Spray Tanning - application advice

    Try a heavier spray. I think its worthwhile doing a load of guinea pig clients at the begining - just charge around £10 until you get a feel for the gun and the spray. x

    Renting a room at Fitness First

    Hi Lorraine I used to rent from Fitness First and I would say that it was a brilliant thing for me. I was just finished my training and I offered really good prices to get as many services under my belt as I could. The room rate was excellent so I still made decent profit. I would say that...

    OPI Training??

    Both of your training options sound good, it's a choice. I only have 2 things to add- I personally would feel slightly uneasy about the changes afoot at OPI- I have no idea how that will pan out for salon business. Secondly, i think it's the practice and research that you put into your skills...
