    Waxing black skin

    Yeah definitely just buy one pot and see how it goes. It really is trial and error. After a few waxes it should get easier as long as they're not shaving in between wax appointments!

    Wax brow graze injury help, not sure why?

    Lifting problem with gel nails

    I had this same issue and it drove me crazy no matter what I did! I was using Jessica Geleration and the results were so varied, with some lasting more than 3 weeks and others less than one. The only way I resolved it was change brand. Ive used IBD just gel for 3 years now, it's half the price...
