    Acrylic nail just fell off

    I've had a client today who has messaged me to say her thumb nail has just dropped off. Tip and acrylic. I've never had this before?? I prepped completely, applied the acrylic as always (I use cnd retention) and all her others are fine?! Why would this happen?

    Do you have your own branded clothes/tunics? Or do you wear an apron. I'd love to see if you've had them personalised or if you wear something different or style it up a bit!

    Do you find that you make money/can have a career as a manicurist rather than doing acrylic nails? I'm looking at offering more manicures, shellac and nail art as I really don't enjoy doing acrylics. Does this work for you?

    Clients picking nail art

    I see some gorgeous nail art around and I always wonder - do you have nail pops to show or does the client give you a guide eg. Colours and you just run with it and create? What if the client isnt happy with the finished result?
