Hiya! Sorry for rubbishness at replying to texts/e-mails... I don't like tempting fate but I've been super busy! The bookings just keep rolling in.... wont get too excited though, it could easily quiten down again! Pppl don't seem to mind the slowness too much it's seems.... I am still mega slow doing nails by the way. I still take up to 2 hrs to do take off and redo. I think I just chat too much and spend too much time faffing and perfecting!! How are things with you? How's the minx going down? xx
I don't know if your sealer gel will work hun. I had no trouble with Cuccio Pronto. I scrubfreshed the Minx to ensure it was clean and then I applied my very thin base coat, my thicker layer & applied crystals then topcoated all with the same clear gel (as Cuccio say it can be used as a base, a builder and a top coat :wink2.
I would use at least 3mm crystals for toes as the 2mm are very tiny.
I am pretty sure Jacqui responded to a thread on here as to how she applies them and the sizes she uses. If you can't find that thread, do a search on the main nail forum for crystal pedicure. I know there are loads of threads about them and good advice about how to set them and what sizes to use.
I am sorry but I have no idea what size the crystals are that I have used in my pictures. They were something that I purchased, tried and hated!
It is tricky re the filing. Im reluctant to try without it now! So i get your point. Tho the grey buff file is really soft.
Maybe I'll try without. It's reassuring to know that you've had success without doing it.
Thanks 4 the tip re the video. Where abouts can I find that?
Never touched on short nails during training. I kinda thought you didn't have to cap.
