    Cuticles and nail prep

    Hi, I have a client (same toenail picker) who regularly gets acrylics. When she leaves them bare, she tends to chew at her cuticles to the point she tares off the PNF. She noticed some premature lifting on a few occasions when I applied a new set. Could it be these peelings cuticles? I did a...

    Damaged nails?

    I would leave these to heal for a few months. Oil and lotion.

    Dangers of "Russian Manicure"

    I wonder if anyone on here has any positive experience with these. When I was trained, this was forbidden. I cannot see any good coming of it.

    Ingrown toenails

    As of this, I am sadly quite unsure. She was told by her podiatrist that the toenail will indeed grow back in 9-12 months but, of course, nothing is a guarantee. I do not want to give her any advice about the nail growth itself as I am not a doctor. So mum is the word from me for now. My core...

    Ingrown toenails

    Nonetheless, it is her great toe so she is looking at 9-12 months for growth. Her nail from the free edge to the base was removed about 1/4 deep. I can paint the small nail they left but she would not be content with that. We have an appointment in March so I will have to look at it and make the...

    Ingrown toenails

    I am thinking the tip and overlay may be needed. She is missing a large percentage of her nail.

    Ingrown toenails

    I am looking into the training and filled out the enquiry form. Perhaps they teach the protocol in this course. Do they? If not, do you so happen to know? As far as protocol is concerned, do you request a doctor's note before working on one? She sent me an image via text and right now, it is...

    Ingrown toenails

    Yes, I am unsure. This is a good suggestion. I will not work on it until I receive this training. I am still a little unsure about working on a toenail after it has recovered from a partial avulsion ingrown toenail surgery. I live in the the US, so unfortunately, that specific suggestion is not...

    Ingrown toenails

    Strangely enough, I never did a reconstruction on toenails and now I am being bombarded with them. I am a bit concerned about the ingrown after the surgery as I wonder if there will be enough nail to cling onto. I am also concerned it can cause a recurrence on this ingrown. I am going to do more...

    Ingrown toenails

    This is the kind of thing I was looking for.

    Ingrown toenails

    Thanks. Yes, let me clarify. I was attempting ambiguity but I suppose we are on a professional forum. The client went to the podiatrist to get approximately 1/4 of the nail from the sidewall down into the matrix removed due to swelling. The nail was not infected but clearly, now she has an open...

    Ingrown toenails

    True thing. But I suppose I am meaning people who need to go to the podiatrist, get the small surgery, and then later come back for a pedicure or a total reconstruction? I should have made this quite a bit clear in the OP.

    Ingrown toenails

    Greetings. I have come across quite a few of these and must wonder what you do when a client comes in with what looks to be an ingrown toenail. I am not talking about the ones on the top you can clip off but rather, the ones one the side which seem to be leaving a swollen side wall.

    Clients that buff their nails

    Thank you. I am going to stop charging for frequent customers.

    Clients that buff their nails

    You have enlightened me. Back to the drawing board I go. Thanks for the business advice. It makes perfect sense.

    Clients that buff their nails

    Interesting. It takes more time for reshellac so I charge a few bucks extra. You suppose people are damaging their nails over a couple of dollars? Perhaps I need to reevaluate.

    Lockdowns and business

    Hello, again, wonderful people! I live in the US and right now the beauty industry is blessed (well... that is questionable I honestly suppose...) to be able to determine whether or not our businesses remain closed or open at the moment. I know this is not the case for many other areas of the...

    Nail strengtheners?

    My partner has seen it all. He had a patient come in with her cat, and was doing all sorts of nail procedures as the cats were running amok. Of course, she was constantly painting and removing with acetone so she asked him if it could be that the house reeked of nail products. No, duh, lady. Cat...

    Nail strengtheners?

    Interesting questions there, Trinity. I would be glad to explain further. My partner is a veterinarian, and you are correct, simply wearing the polish in your home would not be toxic to your little fur babies. It is the fumes released. Too many people who apply nail polish or use acetone at home...

    Nail strengtheners?

    Hi. Does your client own pets? If so, please be sure to use a non-toxic. If an animal breathes in anything else, they can suffer serious side effects. I recommend Ella & Milla. Nonetheless, if she has no animals I would highly recommended OPI Nail Envy. It works wonders if you put one layer on...
