    Hi, I had this happen a couple of times too. One was because of denim jeans and the other was from a newspaper - it's definitely not what you have done

    IBX repair query on flaking and splitting nails

    I also have a few clients that ibx isn't working on, and in fact a couple of clients are worse with ibx. I am thinking of offering the treatment free to those clients, as I want to continue using it just to see if it will work, eventually, and I feel bad taking the extra £5 every week. Does...

    IBX Restore & Repair?

    Hi jemiimafox if you are getting 'little dots' after applying just to repair you should blot excess after heat and before cure but as Jim has confirmed don't cleanse and carry straight on with your next coat of ibx hope this helps

    IBX Restore & Repair?

    Yes me too but I haven't been cleansing after that coat - does it make any difference - I really don't know!!! But it definitely doesn't say cleanse after that coat on Famous Names instructions or their own video. Maybe Linda or Jim can confirm this please.

    IBX Restore & Repair?

    I think this is great but, correct me if I'm wrong, but on the instructions and also on the video it doesn't say to cleanse after you put the ibx repair just on the delamination or splits. I know you cleanse after the first application of repair and obviously after each ibx coats

    IBX Restore & Repair?

    IBX trouble with lamps?

    Me too. Exactly the same views - I bought an infrared lamp from ebay for £9.95 100watt bulb it is absolutely fine (although I think they have sold out) and I also used a hairdryer for the first two days before I received the lamp - my clients were fully acceptable of it and quite excited that...

    IBX Restore & Repair?

    I'm not sure if it will work - but I have a client with a split down her thumbnail and I kept wrapping it without any joy then I decided to cut it as short as I could and put on a false tip with fibreglass over it and the split grew out - maybe it's worth a try, and then at this stage you could...
