    Reviews on Brillbird nail art glue gel please

    Ok so I can't find Akzentz Bling on in Greece. I have contacted the supplier and they haven't had it imported for a while now (like a year or so!). So I'm looking into Brillbird for something similar. Is it as good? Also, have you heard about Somfis? Supposedly they make a gel like that as well...

    CND training the same worldwide?

    I know most here wouldn't be able to answer me but I'm hoping someone might shed some light into this I went to a salon lately to work closer to home. They used shellac, original.

    Lashbase primer residue?

    Which skin care brand?

    We'll as the title says I'm a little confused. I have recently started working in a salon and they use a skin care brand here called Juliette Armand.

    Difference between mink and silk lashes?

    I've only trained a little while ago and have only used silk ones so far. My technique is still developing and I'm getting better with every set I make. So what's the difference from the mink ones (artificial mink, I don't support genuine mink)? Are they lighter, softer, more matt? Is it worth...

    Fairies stamping plate?

    Hey girls, so I was asked today for a fairy-themed set of nails. I could try by hand, but the girl's nails are so tiny I'd rather go with a stamping plate. I already checked moyou and they only have 1 plate where most fairies are sitting. Do you guys have any alternative suggestions? Thnx

    Lash courses and which brands?

    Hey all, First of, let me say I have no idea about anything related to skin, other than the non-pro things we have and do at home. I'm basically a nail tech.

    Motorbike accident ouch!

    Ok I went to the hospital and I'm generally fine but my nail as you can see below is in a bad shape. Doctor would probably take it out but she had no idea about acrylics and I'm allergic to anesthesia so she'd rather avoid it. She told me to cut off the edge and we'll see it again tomorrow My...

    Alternative to barbicide

    Barbicide is in shortage here. I can find a couple in Athens but the cost of the delivery is off the roof, because of the weight :mad: I can't find Mundo anywhere! 1) A nail supplier here has switched over to one called Perfectan TB (ready to use, quite expensive), 2) another uses Bacillol...
