    Saint nails?

    Never heard of them. A quick Google gives their website, looks ok but something always niggles me when companies don't give an address in their contact page. Especially distribution/seller/traders. A further google of their company name buried in their T&Cs provides another company called Vice...

    Acrylic training courses

    I checked out The Beauty Academy, same thing, their acrylic course is one day. Nope. You could look at a brand specific training course with CND via SweetSquared, The Nail Team, The Creative Beauty Acadamy, and CJP are just a few of the best products available and those have great training...

    Acrylic training courses

    Hmmmm - they talk the talk but I certainly do not think you can learn everything involved in doing nail extensions in one day, which is their acrylic course. When I trained with CND a whole day was spent on learning how to select, apply and blend a tip, at least one day was spent on H&S, product...

    Nail tips

    If you use the search facility for 'tips' they are often discussed and you'll find lots of recommendations and suggestions. With regard to bubbles, I assume you mean in the adhesive when adhering the tip? If so you need to rock the tip on to the natural nail firmly, this will push the excess...

    Nail polish

    Just about any polish will last over overlays, usually the cheaper the better. I'd be more interested in why it's coming off than changing brand to fix it. What is happening? Peeling? chipping?

    Acrylic bead pick up technique

    Do whatever works for you provided you are picking up the correct ratio for your chosen product. Too wet and you will get cracking, breaking and the product will be brittle. Too dry and you'll end up with similar issues, and bubbles, etc. Most tech's find their own 'way' after training and...

    Nail forms over tips?

    Maybe older formula adhesives, but it's not going to breakdown in the short period of time before the tips grow out anyway. Applying with acrylic is a really old method...so time consuming, and clumpy

    Nail forms over tips?

    Nope, there is no strength or weakness in the 'tip' - the strength is in the correctly structured overlay product - no matter if Gel, L&P, Gel Hybrid Tips should be trimmed and blended to ensure it fits correctly and exposes as much of the natural nail as possible to aid the bonding. Overlay...

    Nail forms over tips?

    A correctly structured nail will be as strong in either product. The strength is in the correct placement of the stress apex and spine not the tip.

    Nail tip replacements

    You are the professional, it's your call. If they insist on going longer than you recommend and break them because of that then charge them for the extra replacements. They'll only take advantage if you let them. They'll get over it, we all whinge when prices of things go up but if we want...

    Nail tip replacements

    How ever long their rebalance appointment is 2/3/etc. I work on the basis that this is real life, cracks, breaks, chipped corners are inevitable, I'd rather chuck in a couple of freebie repairs for those accidents than have clients leave them so greenies set in on cracks, damage starts because...

    SBD London

    Never heard of it, lack of reviews would indicate to me it's either very new, or not great Is it a pro brand or another ebay/amazon? Quick Google, the logo looks vaguely familiar, bottles are pretty. Their FB page has 4k members but is a closed group so you can't skim through. I don't remember...

    Starting out

    Hi, all your questions have been asked and answered many, many times, your best bet would be to grab a cuppa/coffee and read through the forum. There's a search facility to look for specifics like 'Crystal' or 'training' Enjoy :cool:
