    Hi. I've been out of the nail business for a while now and am just starting to get back into it friend has just asked me to do her teenage daughters nails for her and after checking my kit, I found I was short on a few items.

    Daylight lamps

    I have the Slimline Day Light lamp and although it cost more, I feel it is worth the price. I bought a cheaper daylight lamp before the slimline lamp and it really didn't come close to the one I have now, hence why I replaced it after a few months, it just didn't give me the light I needed.

    Shellac price?

    I'm Bristol based and mobile, like yourself but I charge £25 for a basic Shellac Manicure, more for Spa Manicure ans Pedicure's. Anything less, I feel under values the Shellac product and my skills. Also, if your too cheap, you may attract clients which do not care for thier Manicure properly...

    Brisa removal question

    Hi Geeks, I am hoping someone can help me with a question I have. I have been using Brisa for over a year but had never removed a set before last night. I know Brisa is a buff off gel and is acetone resistant. My CND Brisa workbook from my training, said to remove Brisa, you should buff the...

    Your RRP for Solar Oil Pinkies

    I retail mine at the RRP of £3.95, I feel to sell them lower than the RRP just under values the product. I also stoke the other larger bottles for retail and sell them all at their RRP. I give one pinki away with a new clients first shellac/enhancement appointment, which I factor the cost of...

    Shellac and fluff

    I used to get the dreaded fuzzys until I switched to the soft landings nail wipes which I get from S2. I found the handsdown plastic backed pads where a complete nightmare for fuzzys and I'd spend more time fishing them of the nails than I did polishing the Shellac.

    Brisa problem

    I've had something like this before and it was the black dye rubbing off of the inside on the pocket on a new pair of jeans. As I was normally using my right hand i.e. to hold bags / umbrellas etc , I only had the marks on my left hand. It could be your client has done something similar without...

    How do you pick your crystals up?

    I have the picker upper from nail delights as well. I used an orangewood stick and cocktail stick with blue tac in the past but the crystals kept dropping off before I got them where I wanted them. I would not be without my picker upper now I've used it :biggrin:

    Glove or not to glove

    I only wear gloves when I want to protect my own shellac. If the Shellac is due to come off or I have nacked nails, then I don't use gloves. Even when I do use gloves, I only use them for the parts of a service which invole me using products containing actone as I find my hands get sweaty...

    Client's weird comment

    Shellac stands already on eBay!

    In all honesty, I dont think there is anything S2 can do about the people selling trade only products on eBay or other sites. I have thought about buying some items from eBay, so I can get the seller's return address and name, then passing those details and items on to S2 but I doubt that...
