    congratulations! He's such a cutie! I can't believe Ella is 11 weeks already! Time has flown so fast and all in a blur! I wish I could relive those first few weeks again (knowing what I know now!) She had her first lot of jabs yesterday so we've have a rough couple of days :(

    She's here! Am totally smitten, she is just amazing. The birth not so amazing, all my concerns about being induced came true and after going through the ringer ended up with emergency section which pales into insignificance compared to getting her out safe and well! Little Ella born 6th July...

    Dog passed away this morning at home

    Don't feel guilty xxx Even if you had had the scans they may not have been able to do anything, and I know from experience that treatment isn't always the best option anyway. He didn't suffer and that's the main thing xxx

    I've had great results with some of my clients who struggled with gel polish. It can add about 15 mins onto your service time though so bear that in mind.

    Can I put soak off gel polish over hard gel?

    Technically yes the hard gel should be fine but I personally think it's much better to file the colour off, much quicker too!

    Can you encapsulate gel polish with clear acrylic?

    If it's polish on a natural nail then no it will crack as it doesn't have a strong enough foundation. If the base is acrylic then gel polish you have that strong foundation of the acrylic to stop too much flexibility and cause cracking.

    Congratulations! Wow, he'd certainly made his mind up he was coming! 4 days over for me now. I'm not really that bothered but husband is off this week and so would have been nice to have all had more time home together. Plus he'd have deterred the motherships visits a bit!

    What to advise client?

    Thank you. No signs of anything moving yet, which is making me feel bad for not saying I'll go round and soak them off for her but I worked up to Friday which was my due date and have had to draw the line somewhere! Good point on the inevitable picking doing more damage. She is quite well...

    Can you encapsulate gel polish with clear acrylic?

    If the gel polish/design is sandwiched between acrylic you might get away with it but you could end up with a bulky nail. Like trinity said I'd go for a top coat like glaze and go.

    What to advise client?

    I am 4 days overdue with baby and so am not doing clients this week! I have a regular lady who would have been due her infills at the weekend, she knew I wouldn't be able to do them. I have someone covering some of my regulars but as this client can only do evenings or weekends and needs mobile...

    Toe nail reconstruction

    Another one interested in this thread as I have a client wanting one done in a few weeks before her holiday. She damaged it years ago and now it only grows over 1/4 of the nail bed and what is there is quite ridged. Have done one before but the bit of nail that was there was smooth.
