Flakes? Is this from the removal process?
Cleaning up, orange wood stick works great for me, but try to avoid skin exposure if possible.
And no, Shellac doesn't require buffing the natural nail.
Hope that helps!
The most important way to prevent problems is education. Whatever brand you choose, look into the education and support they have to offer. Otherwise you may not maximise your investment. Best of luck!
Commission salons are where you need to be to develop your skill, confidence and client interaction (and still make money).
In short, commission is for when the salons bring in the customers. Booth rent is when YOU bring in the customers.
And love Haircutz comments. She is spot on.
SNS is a brand name . Many, many other brands do the same system with very little variance in the technology between them. Nail Alliance do it for their brands (Gelish, Artistic, Entity). Pretty sure most wholesalers do it too (e.g. Sallys/Salon Services).
Love Salon 62. Clients will have a hard time rembering ameliorer. Best thing about Salon 62? It says what business you are in the name... and where you are at!
Names don't have to be meaningful or fancy. They have to be memorable. What you do IN your business is what will make it memorable...
We've all been there Alanya!
It certainly CAN be our fault but that doesn't mean that is the default position. If you are working to the system (e.g. manufacturers prep and lamp) and most of your clients have good wear, then maybe it is their nails that require a different approach.
Most likely down to the condition of the natural nail. The thinner and/or more damaged the natural nail is, the more likely it is to wear poorly. Another point to mention is lifestyle. e.g. someone who types for a living is going to have more edge chipping than someone that doesn't.
