    LED lamp with IBD Just Gel?

    They used to stock the IBD lamp at my local wholesalers. If there is somewhere locally that stocks IBD it may be worth checking with them.

    Roo Beauty Lolabelle Trolley

    My mobile trolley has finally given up on me and I'm looking to purchase something durable and that does the job. I've looked at lots of different bags, trolleys etc. and wondered if any of you have the Lolabelle and if so what are your thoughts please. Thanks in advance.

    Chemo and gel nails?

    She can have gel nails with the agreement of her Oncologist - you need this as your insurance may not be valid without it. It is generally suggested that a dark colour is used as this can help preserve the nail. You need to ensure that everything is immaculately clean as there can be a risk of...

    What to do about gel polish shrinkage?

    Is your base coat covering the whole of the nail including the free edge? This is your base for a reason as the colour coat will stick to the areas you have painted with base - it will pull back from any areas that are not covered.

    Foot spa liners?

    Obviously you can disinfect between clients but I like the fact that I can do back to back pedicures without the need to disinfect as I just change the liner. It's all down to personal preference but also a great selling point to my clients.

    Foot spa liners?

    I have the Footsie and love it! You can't line a spa with jets. The Footsie vibrates and keeps the water lovely and toastie and is hygienic as the liners are disposable.

    Buying CND Shellac?

    You can buy anything you want on Aliexpress, but whether it's the real thing or not is unlikely. If something is too good to be true, it usually is. Are you willing to risk your business reputation to save a couple of pounds? There are lots of threads on here relating to similar questions.

    Laying flat for Hollywood?

    You must use the tip to push the wax right through the hair. Remember that hard wax 'shrink wraps' the hair and doesn't adhere to the skin. Therefore you need it fully encapsulated to get an effective removal without breakage.

    Not beauty related-family drama!

    Definitely go dancing. First birthday parties are usually really about the parents as it's mostly too much for the child. It's not as if he will remember whether you came or not and if mum is a real friend, she might be a bit miffed but she'll understand.

    Laying flat for Hollywood?

    It depends what they find more comfortable. The majority prefer to sit up a bit as it puts less pressure on their back. Are you using hard wax? If so you should only need the tip of the spatula.

    Client wants to return item

    That was me speculating! I agree you shouldn't re sell if it has been used. Just tell her no.

    Client wants to return item

    I would guess that she got caught up in the moment, has tried it and it may not be what she was expecting. Stick by your policy unless you think you can resell easily or offer a credit note so you're not out of pocket.

    Client wants to return item

    I don't think you have to unless it is faulty. What does your policy state?

    Gelish 18g LED lamp

    It's a really good lamp. VAT free site wide on Gelish at the moment too so would save you about £50 (off the top of my head)

    Anyone use the Cuccio Max Pro 2 or ASP Curve LED lamps please?

    I had the ASP lamp a few years ago. That didn't last long either, about a week over a year. It was enormous too!

    Too long to heat up?

    Yes but decant the strip wax from the tin. The hard wax is just beads
