    How to safely dispose of glue

    Silly question but given that a small spillage of nail glue can result in it heating up and even smoking, how do I dispose of a bottle of glue that has so much stuck round the top that the lid won’t do up? I can’t just tip it into the bin or onto paper. Unsure how to dispose, can anyone help? Thanks

This proved very popular. Most of the people who use it have been...

    How long does an LED lamp work for?

    I bought my CND shellac lamp from S2 a couple of years or so ago, and was told no more buying bulbs, it would just keep working & curing till it died basically.

    I’ve seen a course for a face lifting facial which appeals greatly since I think a lot of my clients would be interested. I don’t do any other type of facial so my question is, is there a range of skincare I could use which would be suitable for ALL skin types to keep the actual facial basic and...
