    Acrylics left on over 3 months (no refill)

    They could be damaged, but you won't know until the acrylic comes off. You are best off messaging your nail tech for advice :)

    Acrylics left on over 3 months (no refill)

    Ah sorry I didn't realise this was your natural length. Yes the tech can simply soak off the acrylic and hopefully leave your natural nails in tact, depending on their condition underneath the acrylic. Although unless your natural nails are super strong, I don't think polish-only is suitable...

    Acrylics left on over 3 months (no refill)

    Hey, I'm not quite sure what I'm looking at here? Are these acrylic extensions grown out that you have painted over yourself at home? I would ask your nail tech first, to see what they want you to do. But I would cut them down pretty short and book in for an infill

    Groupon? What do you mean? Is this a good way to get in new business? Do you still get paid the same way?

    Rent options

    I rent a room, but only because I also offer face/body waxing. A room will probably cost you more, so if you have no intention of offering more than just nails, a desk should be fine. As long as you have enough room for all of your supplies, that is. If you are nails-only, do you have enough...

    Nail lamp recommendations

    hi again, ideally you would stick to one brand. I was a bluesky lover until I did some research and spent time here and on another group. And the gel bottle?

    Urgent visor face mask advice needed

    Nail lamp recommendations

    You should use the lamp recommended by your gel brand of choice, i.e if you use CJP, use CJP's lamp. There is no such thing as a universal lamp. UV lamps explained - (why any old lamp just won’t do!). UPDATED September 2019
