    Glitter natural nail tips

    I use a glitter striper - I find the brush easier to get a good smile line with.

    Uniforms!!

    I'm mobile and I find a tunic with a pocket in really useful for car keys, mobile phone, tweezers etc that I don't want to put down just anywhere or risk leaving at someone's house. Unfortunately a lot of the nice tunics now don't have pockets!

    how long should bio gels last once opened

    I find Bio sculptures work well although I don't like doing them. A lot depends on the client and her lifestyle. Some really like Bio sculptures, some prefer overlays, some can manage OK with Bio over tips and others can't, and some just prefer L&P. It's trial and error - no one thing...

    how long should bio gels last once opened

    Yes, I've found my white goes thicker (and a bit stringy) after a while and it becomes more difficult to work with. When I get a new pot I decant half of it into another (cleaned) pot so I'm only using a half at a time which keeps the other half nice and new. I also find adding a bit of...

    Any Geeks Been Getting Free Scratch Mags?

    I got a couple of copies of PN free and thought it was because I have my insurance with them. However, when they stopped arriving I rang to query it and was told that I wasn't actually getting them as part of the insurance deal (I'd not ticked the right box - doh!!), but that I was...

    What's in for Spring??

    I was wondering that too. Surely you'd have to do the lunula first, swiping the edge to get it crisp, then butt the next colour to it - maybe, eh???

    Home based salons, does this happen to you?

    You could arrange for a friend/neighbour to come round pretending to be your next appointment. Touble is, if you've got things to do, you might not be able to get rid of her either!!!

    Disillusioned with the state of the Nail Industry? - here's one for us ALL to debate!

    This is what I was meaning. If we stay solid, maintain our levels and don't see each other as a threat, the industry can only benefit. But, as has been said, consumers need educating too. I didn't know Creative was such a reputable company with high training standards until I found this...

    Disillusioned with the state of the Nail Industry? - here's one for us ALL to debate!

    I am not vindicating this sentiment, but unfortunately, this IS the way of the world. And it happens in all industries. Consumers want cheap and there's always someone who will provide it. But before we totally condem NSS and hobbyists for taking food of our tables, aren't we guilty of...

    Disillusioned with the state of the Nail Industry? - here's one for us ALL to debate!

    I have to blame the insurance companies - and the nail industry itself to some extent. There is no clear-cut route for someone wanting a career in nails. If we weren't able to get insurance without such-and-such a qualification, we would all know what we had to do. How many threads have...

    I'd be happy to send another gift if you still need some more. Also, you can have my geek molians - may take me a while to work out how to transfer them though. :hug:

    Anyone BORED of black polish?

    Just how I feel - so fed up with French. Everyone ooohs and aahs at all the colours and nail art then say, "but I'll have my usual French." Grrrrrr!! :irked:

    Anyone BORED of black polish?

    Ooooo yes!!!! Let's see if we can start a trend. I like the darks, but life's a bit gloomy after Christmas - it'd be nice to brighten things up a bit.
