    Nail Biter

    I was a very bad nail biter turned picker and my nails were completely trashed, I even picked off l&p, gels. However I read here that if somebody had broke a nail, they applied a tip, so I just started applying tips, (very short) and shellaced over the top of them. Now some months on I have...

    Foot In Mouth Experiences!

    The title says it all really. Last night I was hosting karaoke, I went up to a couple, who looked like they may want to join in but were shy, so I said "Would either of you like to sing? I can guarantee I will have something that you could do!" The lady mouthed back, to me, using sign...

    Shellac or gelac

    I have tried both. To me Shellac far outshines Gelac (excuse the pun), for it's durability, brilliant shine, ease of application and no buffing of the nail. Having said this you will have to buy the CND lamp. Do not look at it as an expensive outlay (it really is very reasonably priced) look...

    Pedicure with gel?

    With Shellac, if a client would like a SpaPedicure at the same time, I offer them the reverse pedicure. Do all the usual pep on the toes, apply Shellac, then the SpaPedicure, works perfectly everytime:biggrin:

    Gel 'pooling' at sides before curing.

    I used to have that problem with self levelling gel. So I went down what I believe to be a better route, I converted to Brisa Gel by CND. It is not self levelling, it sits exactly where you put it. Also it has low photoinitiators, so you don't get that nasty heat spike:Scared:. However I...

    Buffing Cream?

    I went to a client to Minx her toes. I have never had a problem with Minx, however on this lady even though there was nail on the little toe, the Minx did not want to adhere to the nail plate. I had done all my normal prep, getting rid of cuticle, scrubfresh. Eventually it stuck and I left...
