    Airbrush white paint keeps cracking when applied

    I found that this happened if I put the white on too thickly or put the varnish on too thickly. I had to make myself do lots of really thin coats as sometimes I would blast the paint on. It may be something else but once I stopped doing really thick in one go whites it stopped happening...

    Worried about possible acetone damage on client

    Hi The cracking on the nails happened to me when I wore shellac for the first time. Basically it was because my nails are soooooo bendy that anything longer than a few milimeters of growth causes my nails to bend and causes a crack about a third of the way or even half way down my nail. It...

    Untrained therapists Your opinions please

    It does happen. When I was doing my nvq in beauty we went to Olympia. The next day this girl came in with the most appauling nails I have ever seen on and complained that they hurt. Her friend had bought a starter kit at the show and then they had played nails for the rest of the evening...

    ARBONNE- Feedback please

    I have used the products as my friend invited me to an Arbonne party at her house. Up until this point I had not really heard of them. I personally though they were the same as body shop at home that kind of thing. I tried the vitamin C cleansers and the rest of the range and it is the first...

    Prices for Brazilians and Hollywoods

    I have found that a lot of places call it a brazillian/hollywood but they sometimes only really do a high bikini so they can charge less than me. I had a woman say that somewhere near me was doing a Brazillian for £12 and why was I so expensive. But they didnt wax the labia at all as that was...

    CND Lace Up/Corset nails

    Hiya I had an idea and i think it might help. I took a CLEAR tip and then put the white on as usual (nice smile line etc. ) but not to the end of the tip. I then did two rectangles from the white Ive just done up either side of the tip so that you have a gap in the middle which will give...

    Which remover doesn't harm SHELLAC?

    It might just be me but when I put nail varnish over the top of my shellac it all came off ! I had decided to do a french over the shellac after a few days of it being on. I had a perfect line where the varnish had been and just bare natural nail. The shellac that had not been varnished over...

    Does anyone have garra rufa fish?

    I think the appy feet people do franchises but am not sure. I think you have to know what you are doing with the fishes. I would love to have the fish but I think you need a good knowledge of the fishes and how to look after them, what they like and the kind of filtration you would need to...

    Hi I can sympathise with you about being busy and not striking a work life balance. have you thought about life coaching. I have discussed many situations with mine and it has helped clarify what I want out of life rather than what I think I want out of life. lol I know it sounds bizarre...
