    SOS...done over?!

    Thanks guys, I meant an offensive as in a strategy to get clients. I really doubt clients will change just because of the years under my belt (not many compared to some on this site) clients here seem to opt for either her or the nss down the road. Plus there's a lot of gossipy wives doing...

    Bacterial nail infection

    Thank you for your reply. There was no lifting other than around the cuticle area which I filed away. I use nsi products, sani pure etc. I feel really guilty! I am just wondering if leaving the enhancements for 3+ weeks and washing up every night might be the cause or aid? I was full of...
