    Free edge advice

    If I get lifting/separation between the natural nail free edge and the gel free edge, I turn the hand over, and use a drill to file the lifted natural nail away from the gel overlay. However, after the lifting has been removed, the natural nail starts to lift again the next day. Should I be...

    Hard gel suitable for thin, bendy nails?

    NVQ qualified, but no e-file certification

    I’ve looked on SalonGold for insurance, it doesn’t seem to have any fine details as to what I’d be covered for. Just nail enhancements, cutting and shaping nails, plus paraffin wax

    NVQ qualified, but no e-file certification

    Hi, I passed my NVQ in nail enhancements back when I was a teenager. We didn’t get certified in the E file. However, I do already use the Efile on my own nails. Do I need to be certified in order to use one on public? Or will insurance cover this?

    Gel nails, lifting, coarse nail file?

    I trained as a technician when I was a teenager, and we used IBD gel. My nails would lift within a day or 2. Fast forward many years later, and using gel polish, CND , Candy Coat and BlueSky lift on me. So I decided to use CND bridal Lite, which lifted, then used CND sculpting builder gel -...
