    Log cabin/shed etc. salon set ups!

    Minx clear cure all?

    Does anyone where I can get this from - sweet squared are out of stock. Having returned to nails I am only offering natural nail care and shellac but have come across a few clients with small splits. Not wanting to do the Tea Bag method for clients would silk or fibreglass be ok under...

    Card payment machine?

    I use payleven. Brought it for £49 from salon services. (Sally's) really easy to use and they take a small percentage but over all as I'm in a village and do hat hire and sell jewellery too it is really helpful when customers want to add on bits even if they've brought cash for the correct...
