    Ink London ilac longevity?

    It soaks off in about 6 minutes. It's like one of those fortune telling fish from the fair that curl up. Most of it curls up in big chunks leaving only small bits which wipe off with a cotton pad. It's quicker than shellac to remove and leaves no residue on the nails. Can't fault the removal...

    Advice, client wanting to charge her phone

    Out of interest, I'm wondering how many non pat tested chargers are used in staff rooms.....i know at my work there's pretty much a phone on charge in every office at any given time (day job in a Hotel so lots of staff areas). None of those have been pat tested and in all honesty as an...

    Gellux training at Capital

    Don't let cost be the deciding factor if possible. You could spend out on Gellux training only to find it applies differently to your chosen brand. You may then need or want to train with your chosen brand meaning you've spent out on 2 courses Do you hold a basic mani qualification? Or are you...

    Can't get my polish to look professional

    I agree. I felt really cack handed to begin with but after practise it became so much easier. I have small hands but it's definitely possible to hold the bottle Sent from my GT-I9505 using SalonGeek mobile app

    LA Tan solution help

    The 14 disco is brown toned whereas the 14 cocktail is golden so the disco appears darker. I don't like the cocktail one at all but then I'm not a fan of the gold range either. Disco is nice though Sent from my GT-I9505 using SalonGeek mobile app

    French Shellac with guides?

    Personally I wouldn't use them and if i was a client I'd expect my tech to be able to do it freehand. Like someone else said you can go in with a tiny bit of dsperse on a gel brush after to crisp the line up. Just keep practising :-) Sent from my GT-I9505 using SalonGeek mobile app

    LA Tan solution help

    My most popular are 12 and then 10 in that order. I used to stock the 14 disco and fast tan but don't bother now. If someone wanted darker I'd go for disco. I find the brown/normal range is darker than the gold (which I don't like at all) so it's very rare that 12 isn't dark enough Sent from...

    Not impressed with creative shop stamper

    The acetone apparently damages the stamping head. It gives it an almost pitted appearance with tiny little pock marks which in turn affects the image pickup x Sent from my GT-I9505 using SalonGeek mobile app

    Nail products survey

    If you draw up a survey I'd complete it. Just google survey making sites and set one up. You could also ask fellow techs on fb as well Do you not have any idea of which brand you would like to distribute for? I only ask as most of the big brands have established distributors in place plus...
