    Online acrylic and gel nail course

    I am yes hun. I did a Level 3 in Nail Technology at a local beauty college. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

    CJP vs Glitterbels acrylic systems

    I can vouch for glitterbels as it’s my go to system for both acrylic’s and gel polish. I find them easy to work with. They have a great range of colours and glitterbels. On the other hand I hand heard positive things about CJP. Would it be worth ordering the starter kits and see if you click...

    VTCT nails level 3?

    Hi hun, I did this course one day a week over six months. I loved every single second of it. It was very informative. I did find that you have to put a lot of work in at home but that was perfect for me. We learnt manicure, luxury manicure (using both masks and paraffin wax), pedicure, luxury...

    Infected nail?

    It's hard to say, there is certainly some gunk. Unfortunately none of us would be able to tell you for sure due to not having medical training so if you are in doubt you are best popping to your GP. Xx
