    Nail comp - anyone going??!!

    Just wondered if anyone was thinking of going to the Ezflow roadshow in Nov and competing? It's a great comp to enter if you're a newcomer to competitions. Its not brand led so anyone can enter no matter what product they use. I think I will probably enter the pink and white but I do know...

    IVF 15 yrs on?

    Have done a search but could only come up with replies regarding people going through IVF now. My question is, does IVF have LASTING effects on your nails? I had a new client yesterday who said IVF ruined her nails. OK I've heard this before but then she went on to say she was on IVF when she...

    One finger lift.

    Whenever I do enhancements on myself my index finger on my right hand ALWAYS lifts within 24 hours. This is now driving me nuts because I make sure the prep is faultless. It doesn't happen on any of my other nails. I do sometimes get some lifting on my right hand (its my opposite hand) and I put...

    Do you do stuff you don't really want to?

    I have a client who I went to for the first time a couple of weeks before xmas for a gel rebalance (she'd got a bit fed up with her old tech letting her down all the time). I did them, they looked good and I was pleased with the end product. She went off to Spain for xmas and new year (lucky...

    Fed up with low standards!

    Just a vent here, excuse me! I have had quite a few new clients recently coming to me as they have given up on their 'normal' tech. Some of the nails I've seen are awful! Some people have just recieved rubbish service and some both! So many rebalances I've done recently have been on plain...
