    CND on Groupon

    Has anyone seen that Groupon has the Shellac Luxe on offer?? Wouldn't think CND would allow this tbh, unless Shellac Luxe really wasn't doing well.

    Gloopy Shellac

    Just a quick question. If I use a well-used, gloopy Shellac, whether it's base, colour or topcoat, will it decrease the longevity of the nails ie will they chip quicker? With the popular ones, if I find that they are starting to get gloopy/towards the bottom of the bottle, I do tap them on my...

    'Holes' in Shellac

    I have a client with somewhat weak nails. They are very short and always break when they get any length. They have been weak since before she started coming to us.

    Emailing photos

    Just a quick thing... I emailed a salon enquiring about nail tech vacancies and they have asked me to email over some pictures of my work. Should I put like a 'watermark' or something on them and if so, I don't even know what to put on them. A little help please?

    Onycholysis treatment

    I have onycholysis on the majority of my nails after two of the girls in my college kept filing my nail plate during gel removal. They are very thin and bendy, like thin paper also and anything I do splits them and hurts so I'm wondering if I do a fibreglass treatment until the separation has...

    Pink and white gel dips/bumps

    At college, we are using NSI Builder Clear as base thin layer, Builder White (which I am having trouble getting a smooth consistency with this product) and then Builder Sheer Pink behind and up to the white. I find that I am getting a dip behind the smile even when the pink is right up to the...

    I've been wanting to practise my acrylics and gels more and thought it may be a good idea to get one of those plastic hand things? Did a bit of searching on here and saw someone mention the Affiniti Practise Hand, Flexifinger and the Essential Nails Nail Trainer. I have had a bit of a look at...
