Hi Julie, it's ok. I trained last September. I would like to be mobile so i am slowly building up my business which seems very hard I do have another business too so have to concentrate on both but to be honest i find doing nails so therapeutic. Only it still takes me 2 hours to finish a set lol.
Just converted to cnd as i love the products. I trained with Mercia and some other horrible stuff the company used for training. But i am getting on very well with CND. I did sculpting with my training and that is what i love to carry on doing as i hate tips lol.
Let me know if you still want a model sometimes for sculpting i still use my nail trainer to keep on practising
Hi sorry just seen this I've moved house no net so been using the iPhone app that dosent say I have visiter message and didn't get email to say lol
I prep , aply the DD , buff it ect , get rid of dust , aply the gelish/ shellac base all over (getting sides and free edge to,) , cure
then I get a teeny tiny bit of colour in brush turn brush around so the bristles are facing the free edge and panint it backwords towords the client, then near the cuticle area I turn brush normal way round to get that area tidy ,cure , do 2nd coat , top coat all over including free edge and sides and done !
I love this way with colour and DD on long nails as it gives the look of real long nail beds,
Hi, I only use it on one client who has tips every time I see her. (basically she is my only mobile client and reveal lives in my kit for her everyone esle comes to my home salon)
I like the gel and so does my client. I am please it stays put so I can do all 4 fingers before curing. I find it strong and crystal clear and easy to file. My client is a bad nail biter and usually she has bitten them off after 2 weeks, but on the odd occassion she has an infil the gel has no lift and is great to infil. she always has a colour over and never french. I hope you enjoy using Reveal, you should try Gelish too it is fantastic!
Hi Julie, you sound like me ;-) Ive lost faith in l&p at the moment and am concentrating on gel, shellac and Minx but hope to get back to it after Christmas when I have more time. I havent really tried the fusion yet, the only thing i did was try it very quickly on a tip but found that the pink was very pink over the white even when refined so it didnt look good. I was wondering if others use a reverse technique with it but I havent tried that yet - im having enough trouble with 1 technique lol.
Let me know how you get on! Im hoping to throw myself into it after Christmas
You will love it! I haven't got any tips really as it is just so simple to use. Hard to explain really it is the easiest I have ever used in 11 years in the nail business. It's not ratio sensitive either so there is nothing to get used to. You will see what I mean when you get it! Any questions please feel free to contact me and I will do all I can to help xx
I would recommend Body Builder Soft White & Builder Blush in the Balance UV Gel line. That will produce a very natural pink and white French. If your client has some imperfections on the nail plate you would like to cover, try Body Builder Cover Pink Warm.
Hi Julie. I did use millenium for a few years, but I changed to Cnd last year. Millenium was o,k, very strong smell though. Do prefere cnd now as it's so much easier to use and the nails are lovely. I still use millenium fibreglass which is good. Hth
