    Flawless pink

    Hi I wanted to try using flawless pink powder as one of the other nail techs in the salon where I work uses it and thinks it is great, so thought I would give it a go. I assumed it was a creative product but it isn't in my product catalogue. Any ideas? thanks Kirsty

    Am I Normal!!!!!

    Thanks again Geeg!!! It is just the odd one that is getting me down. I've just done 2 clients this evening and both came back for infills and they both still looked great (even if I do say so myself!!!). I have kept hold of a core client base for a year now and they are still recommending me...

    Am I Normal!!!!!

    I've been doing nails for a little over a year and constantly swing from feeling quite confident about my ability to apply beautiful nails to feeling that I am completely useless and almost chucking the whole thing in. Is this normal and does it ever get any better? Kirsty

    Please help - lifting problem

    Thanks Geeg You've put my mind at rest a bit!!! I think it was really unfortunate that I was in the salon on my own when I did her nails so had no input from anyone else. I should have told the owner of the salon about it because I think they may have been the worst nails I've ever seen...

    Solar Oil

    Try as I might, I just cannot get my clients to purchase solar oil. I have told them all about the benefits etc etc. but still they say "no thanks". I thought about increasing the price of my full sets by a fiver and including the solar oil in the price, what do you think? Kirsty

    Taking Holidays

    Hi Grace I also work from home and have a client base of about 15 regular clients. Last year when I went on my main holiday in August it was a bit tricky as we were away for nearly 3 weeks. I just made sure that I worked flat out on the 2/3 days before we went, which was pretty hard. What...

    Aggghhhhhhhhhh!!!!! Picking nail extensions

    I could scream!!!! No matter how often you tell clients not to pick or bite their nail extensions, why do they insist on doing it? My mother in law in coming tomorrow to have her nails removed and she spoke to my husband last night and told him she had bitten/picked all but 1 of her nails...

    What would you do if somebody refused to pay?

    I once had someone have a set of nails done, and I asked her constantly throughout to check them over, make sure they were right length etc. to which she replied yes and as far as I was concerned she went away happy. After about a week she left a message on my ansaphone demanding a full refund...

    Creative Liquid & Powder conversion course

    Oh, now you've got me really confused!!!! So do I take it that I can leave my nails on? (I'm doing the 1 day conversion course). My course is on the Monday and I'm away all the weekend before so if I have to take my nails off I should probably do it before I go away, as I don't really want...
