    The Gel Bottle Inc problem with gel wearing away on ends of nails

    Removing the top shine isn't enough for some. Problem lifters, pickers, biters & people with jobs that use their hands a lot need that extra surface etching to help the enhancement adhere to the nail plate better. I don't mean to etch the living daylights - just a going over with a 180 grit -...

    The Gel Bottle BIAB

    Straight in with colour. I only buff when doing infills, or when the nail looks like it has 'bulky shoulders' then I will go in and refine. xxx

    Self employed rental charges

    They are taking the piss out of you. Getting 60%, having everything supplied, having their nails and beauty treatments done for FREE. I guess you also provide their marketing and get clients in their seats for them too? Enough is enough. Tell them to pay a set amount each week for their chair...

    The Gel Bottle Inc problem with gel wearing away on ends of nails

    No it doesn't! Buffing the shine off the nail plate doesn't give the polish or acrylic or gel system anything to adhere to.

    Lifting acrylic

    I would say its a mix of your preparation of the natural nail plate & being too close to the sidewalls. Spend more time getting all of the non living tissue off the nail plate. You want it to look bare and clean, with no trace of any cuticle/NLT. Then I would concentrate more on your acrylic...

    Brow wax help!

    Why don't you give her a call and ask how it is? She would appreciate the call even if everything is fine! If it's not - agree to take a closer look when she's back in and ask her how she would like to be compensated? Not only does this make you look caring, it will make her feel valuable.

    How do you fill your last minute appointments?

    I do portfolio sets - something I want to try - I chose the length, shape, colour - everything. I discount £10. I just think another person wearing my nails and I get my materials paid for - fills a space. when people walk past I am busy, it looks good. they don't know its a portfolio set. xxx

    Client’s gel polish peeling after 1 week & 3 days, why?

    Try capping the edge of the nails. Brush backwards towards the cuticle to fully cap those pesky ones!

    Ink London

    The soak off is amazing with Ink. Definitely the quickest. I use the XLac so no base, no top - just two coats of the polish and you're done.
