    Loss of lashes

    Looking for some advice on my own lashes, I have a patch on my right eye that has suddenly gone bald, that's the only way I can describe it, maybe a quarter of an inch in the middle. I had a lash lift at beginning of July and she said this area was quite sparse. I've stopped using eye lash...

    Nightmare Gellisimo Removal

    No, treated myself. Application looked fine to me. I've covered it with vinylux for tonight as don't have time to do shellac. Really disappointed in the removal of it as I know what I'm doing, dread to think how someones nails would be if they didn't! x

    Nightmare Gellisimo Removal

    Thought I would treat myself and get my nails done for Christmas instead of doing my own shellac! Had Gellisimo put on, liked the colour etc but oh my goodness what a nightmare to come off. I've broken the seal with a buffer, wrapped in tin foil for half an hour, hasn't even budged. Have...

    Where can I buy dermividuals as there doesn't seem to be any prices online? We've tried clean start, too harsh, using aveeno moisturiser and Jane iredale powder foundation and a body shop liquid liner. Thanks for all the replies. X

    Sensitive skin on 14 year old

    Thanks for replying, we've already tried Environ and was too harsh on her, she is only using her cream from docs on her forehead, her main sensitivity is on her cheeks, she did say the other night the only thing that doesn't sting is water but she is wearing makeup so she needs something to...

    Sensitive skin on 14 year old

    Looking for some advice for my 13 year old daughter. I can't seem to find a suitable cleanser for her very sensitive skin. She has got acne on her forehead and has been prescribed a cream by the docs and has been prescribed aveeno as a moisturiser, this is the only moisturiser she has tried...

    Condescending nail tech

    Don't let it bother you, she will be feeling threatened! I knew someone like this, she only did nails whereas I did 2 years at college and she told me the problem with being a therapist is that you aren't really good anything, whereas as specialising in nails you are the best! She is hilarious...

    Spray tanning courses in Glasgow

    Just hat the Morrocan tan put on today at the Centres open day, so far so good, liked how quickly it dried and also liked the smell. Guide colour looks good too and I am a St Tropez girl! x

    Tramadol and kidney stones

    You have my sympathies, it is the worst pain ever. I had kidney stones when I was 10 and the doctors didn't believe me, said I was just trying it on! I am now 42 and can still remember the pain clearly! My husband broke his leg a few years ago and he was changed onto Tramadol as the first...

    Resetting the CND lamp?

    Sorry to hijack this thread but do any of you know how to find out how many hours are left in my bulbs in the old CND lamp, I bought if from a fellow therapist to do mine and my daughters nails at home so as not to take the salon lamp home. Thanks. x

    Anyone had the coil fitted?

    I had one fitted a few years ago but didn't like it as I bled quite heavily each month but don't remember having any pain and it was put in with no anaesthetic, it was just like getting a smear done. x
