    Portable wax trolley

    My waxing clients are increasing which is great but I'm getting frustrated. I use a pot and spatula and prefer this to rollers but I'm wasting time in my appointments going to and from the wax pot. I just station it where the client has available (and cover the side with a towel in case of...

    Empower nail film alternative

    I'm still rubbish at nail art but determined to keep trying different techniques. Have seen Mrs Grey's tutorial on art deco nails and fancy giving it a go but the empower nail films are quite expensive when I'm just starting out. Are there are cheaper alternatives out there or any homemade...

    Neutral nail art

    I have a daytime job alongside my beauty business and am only allowed neutral nails which is getting boring. Was wondering if anyone had any ideas to jazz up neutral nails a bit? The boldest I can get away with is Rosebud in shellac but I'm really keen to slow off what I can do to my clients a...

    Shellac Desert Poppy

    In a nutshell, bought it even though I personally don't like orange tones as thought it would be popular in summer. None of my clients have ever chosen it. I don't think it's me steering them away, in fact I'd actually quite like to use it to see if I can change my opinion. Has anyone got any...

    CND Additives vs Mica Pigments?

    I've got a few micas from the colour shack but am considering getting a couple of CND additives to try. I was wondering if there is any noticeable difference between the two in how easy they are to apply and the wear of the product, and of course the overall look? I've tried ombre before with...

    LA Tan mixing solutions question

    Probably a really stupid question but I'll ask anyway..... Can I mix 10% (brown) with either of the 14% (cocktail and disco) to make 12%? I was under the impression you can't mix gold and brown range together as ingredients are different. What's confused me is that cocktail is described as a...

    Shellac Dark Lava vs Dark Dahlia

    Had anyone got swatches of these two colours to compare please? I've tried googling but all the photos are taken in differing lights so it's hard to compare. I want a deep plum colour, more aubergine rather than red so was thinking of Dark Dahlia? Any other suggestions? Thanks Sent from my...

    Do you carry out treatments on friends (paying)? Today I've had a friend cancel her appointment for tonight and in the few days before Christmas, three other friends also cancelled their appointments on the day. My business cards state 24 hours for cancellations although this is more of a...

    LA Tan 14% Disco

    Just wondered if anyone has any pictures of the new Disco 14% after wash off? Am wondering how it compares to the cocktail? I can only find examples using the 18% which I'm reluctant to purchase as there'll be a time where I can no longer buy this. I don't use the cocktail as not keen on the...
