  • Hiya I charge £5 for a single repair & £1.50 thereafter... (providing travel is within a 5 mile radius, as like you I too am ONLY Mobile) - Either that or they drop a bit of nail glue beneath until there next treatment..

    You'd need to be sure where the lift is. Is it the cuticle zone, down the side wall (so you could be at fault) or right along the free edge ??
    Whats her nail type? What gel combination did you use? Does she normally have a problem?
    You could ask her whats happened & depending on her reply you speak of costs etc. But if its down to your workmanship you may need to find a way to fit her in...
    Everything I buy, my petrol, gels, literally everything I put it all on an excel spreadsheet my comings in for every client & everything going out vs my total pickup. Its been the first year I've done this (as before I was plodding along & not really to be taken seriously). This year though I went from 2 clients a week to practically overnight 12 -15 a week so I was able to tally everything up... Even so after building up about 40 extra gels this year my take home is probably £6000 :0
    Hence my reasons to up the prices. Next year will be better as I wont need to build up so many colours as I already have them... BUT i'm meant to be emigrating to Australia & that will be a whole new ball game altogether ... Right now I dont even know if I can ship my open gels with me into the country !!! ... :0
    I've been stuck with £20 NNO & £30 Sculptures for a while now & quite frankly its not enough. If you saw how many clients I did each week (12 to 15) & what my take home pay was after continually replenishing gels (& gaining 1 new colour a month) you would be well niffed...
    I also need to revise what Im charging for Art too as the detail I'm doing is taking up a lot of time & I'm only gaining £5 extra for that. I really need to charge £1 a nail too so I am in the process of revising all my prices for January. I just hope I dont loose too many ladies.... I'm pushing it up slightly to £22 Colour £25 French Sculptures £32 or £35 not decided .... Art price upon application ! re: Diamantes 20p each !

    Hope this helps. I'd reply on the wall but I know your prices will be edited as things like that arent meant to go on the wall xx
    I use S Gel then stamping because you have to remove the sticky residue & if you do that to the colour without the finishing gel it removes some of the colour. I ought to try & see if this still happens then maybe I could also float S Gel on top ?? ...
    I got fed up with having one application for one client & another for another.. I have a good 30+ clients and apply this following combination for ALL of them. No lifting, no chips just perfect 3 or 4 weeks plus performance :

    Besides getting clients to wash hands after thorough cuticle work
    Scrubfresh
    I use sealer gel as a base layer.
    Then sculpting (yes I know its means more gel but I use sculpting like a middle strength and as a sandwich layer (much like you would do a S Gel sandwich)
    then I apply 2 colour coats & generally with S Gel. If I've done stamping I apply that to the S Gel (minus the sticky residue) and then apply a floated layer of sealer gel on top...
    When it comes to removing my gels I always really buff the surface of the nails (quite a bit actually) then the gels literally peel up & off....
    Sealer gel is what locks in any stickers, water decals etc & what bio recommend for artwork so thats why I use that ontop of stamping ...
    Hi Natalie, Thankyou I try my best ;P Always room for improvement, but I guess everyone's like that ...
    The heart one & the script are from the plates within the Monster Bundle 2012 Set. The 2011 set @ £16.99, isn't too great in my opinion.. If you put Monster Bundle stamping plates 2012 kit into Amazon it will come up (minus images on the initial page, but individually viewable with the mouse). The whole kit is £21.99 & use the free delivery that takes 3-5 days (usually arrives quicker). Single plates can't be purchased unfortunately, but I have to say this whole set is gorgeous & I can't sample each of the images quick enough :) In fact click on this link to take you straight to the ones you would need
