    Facial range for small home beauty business

    Hi sorry for the late response. I don’t think we are allowed to post prices but as you have been advised contact them and they will help. I went for a middle package so there were more affordable options. I love the products so far [emoji4]

    Newbie recommendations please!

    Hey I can’t comment on products suitable but I didn’t want to read and run. It is always best to use the lamp that your gel polish brand recommends. This ensures proper curing of the product and less chance of allergies occurring. With regards to UV or LED I would always say LED but just because...

    Gel recommendations?

    I use Shellac and have just invested in The Gel Bottle. I love Shellac but for me personally I need more colour choice. I feel like sometimes they are a bit behind and have found my clients want bright colours etc. I’m waiting for my delivery of TGB so haven’t tested it yet but I’m hoping it’s...

    Magpie or The Gel Bottle?

    Thanks for your reply. I haven’t but I will take a look. I’m a bit disappointed with TGB tbh as they have now sold out of their lamp and won’t have any back until end of March so I’m gonna hold off purchasing anything from them as want to be insured. I will take a look at the brand you suggested x

    Starting over, help!

    Confidence really is! But you are so right... not trying is worse than failing and if you don’t you will always wonder what if. Just do one thing at a time and practice, practice, practice and the confidence will come. I wish you the best luck x

    Hey is anyone going this weekend? I haven’t been for a few years so I’m quite excited. I’m going to be looking at a new gel polish brand to run alongside my Shellac (a bit disappointed TGB won’t be there), a skincare range as I’m looking to start facials again and a lash lift brand to train...

    Gelish 18g LED lamp

    When I used to use Gelish before I switched brands, I had the lamp and it was amazing! Well worth the money. As it’s the show this weekend they may have a discount on it.

    Starting over, help!

    Hi I’m in the same position as you with starting up again although it has not been as long for me. So I originally started 8 years ago and in that time I trained with Gelish and CND Shellac. The lamps for Shellac did change from UV to LED but it just meant a quicker cure. There is now another...

    Log cabin or room in house?

    Hi I’m wondering if you had a choice would you go for a Log Cabin in your garden or a spare room in the house that would be solely used for your business? I have three children and expecting my forth. The youngest is 1.5 and the eldest is nearly 8 so it can be a bit noisy at times however I...

    New to lashes and struggling!

    When I was practicing lashes after day one of my course (you had to go back for the assessment a couple of weeks later) I really struggled. Then I realised it was just because I could not see properly. When I was doing the course they had Glamcor lights so I invested in one and it made such a...

    Your favourite classic lash training brand?

    I can recommend Lady Lash based in London. My course was amazing. I wasn’t allowed to leave until I could do it and then had to return with a model to show a set I had done and infill them whilst there to pass. I know some you can just send photos of your case studies but I liked it this way as...

    Magpie or The Gel Bottle?

    Hi has anyone experience of using both of these products? I’m wondering what is stronger, offers more choice etc? I’m looking for another brand to run alongside my CND Shellac which offers more colour choice and something a bit stronger. I still want to be able to use foils, glitters etc. If...

    41 years old looking to change career

    Hi I think the first thing you need to do is think about if you want to cover all areas of beauty or specialise in specific treatments. I did my level two and three beauty years ago when I left school but have since done other one/two day courses to refresh although you can do these from the...
