    Want to know what was done to my nails :-)

    Totally agree - lol - Invest in training & then maybe you can use it as a skill to create your own client base. Good source of income & works well around having a family :)

    Soak off enhancement gels

    LOL shows how much I know... I incorrectly assumed that Shellac could be used too, but it appears that I should just stick with what I know (& thats Bio Sculpture)... I just know that Bio Sculpture can be applied over acrylic, fibreglass or other gel products as it is Flexible but...

    Manicure table light??

    I got a one from Asda... I think its supposed to be an office desk type. The light is very effective. The neck is bendy so it can be adjusted very easily to how or however high I want it... Only cost £9 & been great for the past 3 / 4 years....

    Tips or Forms ?

    Well they look a lot better than the set I did last week ! My lady had an arguement with her boyfriend & really laid into her nails. They were so badly bitten it was incredibly difficult to work with. Swollen side walls, bulbious fingers etc. I chose to use re-usable forms with a horseshoe form...

    I always do soak offs for every new application so possibly thats why your gels are so difficult to remove because I never do backfills. I always use Bio Gel Remover to soak off & havent felt the need to try Dsolve.. The gel does stick in Little patches but only only certain customers who...

    Mobile nail tech table?!

    I bought a fold up one off ebay from a business wholesaler.. Its mobile, comes with a travel bag, customer hand rest & a mini drawer. Easy to set up but I will say though that it is quite heavy, but all the same does the job pretty well nicely.. Heres one just like it : Manicure Table Portable...

    Discoloured acrylics - greenie!!

    Think the answer is already there hun ! Does she shower? Does she ever wash her hands? Her face? - If this customers general hygiene isnt what it should be (never mind washing up).. then this customer is going to get greenies .... :!:

    Does anybody use eye shadow for nail art?

    I love the fact that practically anything can be imbedded within gels :) I also like the idea of using eye shadow although it mighten look so good in front of a prospective customers if I did, so I can see why geeg has said new pigments are on the way :)

    Gorgous I really want to try these... So did you first use a base coat (clear or sculpting etc) and then apply the feather to the sticky residue & then hope for the best sealer gel on top will lock it down... Or ?? How would you describe the best way of getting this feather to behave so as to...
