    Protein Bond

    I'm assuming you are using Young Nails?? Whilst it's not absolutely essential, if you use the products as you were trained, you will avoid problems along the way . ;)

    Doing your own nails with Gelish

    another good tip is to start with the hardest hand, so if you are right handed paint that hand first, take your time and do the entire procedure on one hand then do the other hand. :D

    Pre-ordering new shellac

    I would be very careful advertising that site on here, they are NOT a legal distributor for CND in the UK...if they are genuine products they have been obtained or are distributing illegally! It is my understanding that the ONLY legal distributors of CND products are Sweet Squared and Ellisons.

    Advice needed from techs who offer both Shellac AND Gelish

    Hi Lisa I haven't used both systems, I cant see past Shellac!...but just wondered if you were aware you can layer your Shellac colours to make many more colours! We do this with great success in the salon. Shellac are also realising 12 new gorgeous shades in March next year, including the...

    nsi acrylic problem

    Sounds to me like your ratio was probably out, and all the powder had not been absorbed by the liquid. If you were trainined with Le Chat and want to switch to another Company, a conversion course is always advisable. Not all systems work the same, NSI is a good product, but its not gonna work...

    Applying Tips and Blending

    What about trying tips without the well? CND Performance Tips require little to no blending and are an absolute godsend! I originally trained with NSI and although I eventually got to grips with fitting the tips and blending them, it did take quite some time:(, so I cant symapthise with you...

    Errrr - trashed nails - what to do

    I would absolutely Shellac them. File the free edge down short so there is no tears and Shellac them!, making sure you cap the free edge. Not only will it protect your damaged nails, it will look amazing for the duration of your holiday. My daughter is a nail biter (I know you are not...

    Shellac ~ What have you done with yours?

    Isn't it hilarious! I had a client the other day nearly have a heart attack when I removed the tacky layer at the end and then scrapped across the top of it! Was sooo funny. :D

    Shellac Pricing??

    Minx Nails - ideas on prices please

    Just remember that Minx is a 'Premium' product. :) Its unlikely, unless you are super talented, you would be able to get the finish/look of minx by hand..not to mention the time it would take:eek: You have the cost of the minx, plus vat, plus a minimum amount for your 'prep' products, plus...
