    I read somewhere that cnd won't be selling any products but you can order on line, think they may be doing some offers on line. There was going to be doing more demo's or something, I maybe wrong but I'm sure it was on an email or something.

    HD Brows cost

    Ohhhhh dear, what a Shame. Sounds like they are forcing people to take on the makeup too. Last year you could invest in the make up as a virtual stockist from as little as £100.

    Vinylux vs other polish?

    The cost is expensive I know how you feel, but I did the training in January and it's so worth it, the brand speaks for itself. I'd save and send one girl first and as your making money then spend someone else. Also when I booked it it was months away so I paid a deposit Round £500 then had a...
