    Please help me! "inflight beauty therapy"

    Hiya, Just a thought but if it was travelling you wanted to do then why not apply for a cabin crew job,if you've worked in a salon this is the type of person they are looking for, good with people etc. You could then do your beauty therapy mobile around your flight schedules. Also you'd get...

    Solar Manicures

    Thanks for the replies,thats helped a lot I really appreciate it. I will look into the heated mitts idea as an extra luxury as well. Do you find you get more call for enhancements or manicures? I know enhancements are always wanted but Im thinking the short coloured look is really in at the moment.

    Does your polish take forever to dry?

    Does anyone know if there is any truth to putting your hands in freezing cold water to harden the nail polish? I havn't tried it on anyone else because its not too much of a pleasant experience for them, but I always do it after Ive painted my own nails. Its something Ive done ever since I was...

    Hi, I can't comment on the treatments but their polishes are really nice, they have a lovely brush and go on really well. You can get their starter pack from Beauty Express and it comes with training manuels on how to carry out the treatments. HTH x

    Cnd Video

    Hi, I don't know how much the video is but I beleive it's in the Hyperion Group Catalogue so have a look in there if you've got it. Otherwise you could always book a one to one with your educator and explain what you need help with, Im sure that would be worthwhile. Read the tutorials on...
