    Tips for tanning wrists, please

    Ive been spray tanning for about four months and it is going really well. But this last week several people have said the inside of their wrists looked a bit messy. The tan stops abruptly at the wrist in a kind of ragged patchy splodgy line. Same thing down the side of the thumb. Have seen...

    Ive been practising sp lashes for about ten weeks. Have really gone for it and done two to four hours a day, every day. Reasonably happy now with my technique and speed but have hit a glitch: This week, five different ladies who had new lashes applied by me on the same couple of days...

    Shellac pep - too thorough?

    Ok. I love shellac but its taking me too long. Cant do it in under an hour and fifteen, which is not cost effective. I think im spending way too long on pep. 45 mins on average. I try to get every last scrap of cuticle off, but i just cannot do so in, say, 60 seconds a nail. I am not a...

    Ive just been reading a thread on mumsnet and one on moneysavingexpert. In each case the op had problems with Shellac chipping or lifting after a couple of days or a week. Several replies say that Shellac is guaranteed for two weeks, advising the op/s that one weeks wear is not good enough...

    Why I will continue to seek advice at Salongeek..

    I read the earlier thread regarding the bracing nature of some replies on here. I love this site. Ive been a beauty therapist for fifteen years and had become quite jaded and maybe a little complacent. Not proud of that but its true. Salongeek has totally rekindled my passion for the...
