    Looking for a cover pink polish (for French)

    I did do a search but I didn't come across anyone who said a polish was good for disguising the natural smile line. So does anyone know of a shade/brand that is pigmented enough to, I suppose fake a long nail bed? I'm using OPI at the moment, Bubble Bath ( I think) and Alpine White I have a...

    My natural smile lines have become more smiley :)y

    So sorry I coudn't think of a decent thread title ( suggestions happily recieved) For as long as I can remember, I've never had smile lines as such, they were more like wiggley lines. However today when I removed my polish I noticed they were more curved and nearly all looking the same...

    Search function not working?

    Has anyone else been having similar trouble? No matter what I search for I get 'no matches found'. I only noticed it last night as I have used the search many many times before. If it's fine on the site end, could anyone offer me a possible fix for my end? Thanks.

    The case of the disappearing nail wall..........

    Girls I'm hoping you can help. Over the past couple of months my middle finger on my right hand has been physically changing. The nail wall on one side has been disappearing. I'm not making this up I swear but I was looking tonight and there is a clear difference between both sides of the nail...

    Which celeb would you like to have as a client?

    I was chatting to my daughter today while doing her nails, and she said to me 'Mammy you are getting good at this now, maybe you could do Adeles nails one day' ( we were admiring her nails on Jonathan Ross last night) I thought it was really sweet of her :) So now I'm asking you lovely people...

    Conflicting information from cluster lash training and here

    Hey girls ( and boys!) I'm going to sound really stupid and I apologise, but I'm confused about the application method for cluster lashes. I have been reading through the many threads on here about various lash extensions, and it seems that the clusters are attached to the actual lashes ( still...

    I've never done a natural nail overlay!

    It's true, I've only ever applied gel over tips. It actually only occured to me as I sat here looking at my bare naturally flat nails ( which I had been growing out under enhancements as I've been having trouble with them since I started my course) Anyway it got me thinking, is there a...

    Visual learning

    I'm hoping someone can help without making me look stupid :) I've read alot of threads, read tutorials and done a lot of searching but I can't find exactly what I need. Mainly because I need to see the advice instead of reading it. I know I said on another thread I decided to give up...

    Enp

    Does anyone use these products or know much about them? ( think it's EZnailz) Most of the searches I did were linked to my wholesalers who were advising me to convert! Any help would be great

    Would I class these as occassional nails?

    Hey girls, I have my first paying client on Thursday :eek: and after a few conversations with her she decided she wants her nails extended but doesn't want 'gel nails', she is also a nailbiter. She is going to a wedding and I did a few sample nails matching her oufit, because she will be away...

    Should I learn to sculpt?

    I've never done it before but after watching and reading so many tutorials, most of them have been on forms ( I was looking for tips on building the apex in the tutorials) They do look like they would save time ( most of my time is spent sizing and blending tips) it also looks like you have a...

    Quick question about old threads

    I have found lots of answers to questions/queries on old threads, but I was just wondering what is the site policy on bumping old threads? Sometimes I've found a thread here through a google search and gone to reply only to notice the thread was 2006 or something! However the thread was helpful...

    How do you keep up with the industry?

    Sorry this is probably going to come across as a totally stupid question feel free to laugh at me :) *unasked for bit of background* I know no one on here knows me but up until last year I was never a girlie girl, I fell in to my beauty course by pure luck and surprised myself and everyone...

    How many sets of nails did you do?

    before you thought 'I have this sussed!' I've done probably 10-12 sets of (gel) nails (all but 4 on me and well they didn't last long!) I really do try hard, I know my problem areas and I've been working on them one by one. Proper blending of tips, trying to keep all nails the same...
