    Is this Onycholysis?

    It does look like Onycholysis. I think whoever has this should visit GP for fungal infection test, and cut nails short. Probably use regular nail polish for some time

    Nail table?

    Ikea table £85, argos table is £55. Argos cheaper, wider - 49 cm, and has drawers. But it is up to you.

    I hate my CND lamp, am I the only one?

    Try Russian or Ukrainian gels (Gloss, Diva, f.o.x., oxxi, Komilfo, Reforma, Adore (Adore is well known) etc). They are universal and dont require specific lamp. And they are much cheaper. I use this web site https://amoreshop.com.ua/nogti/gel-laki.html

    UV lamps explained - (why any old lamp just won’t do!). UPDATED September 2019

    I came to conclusion that I will continue using gel polishes made in Ukraine, Russia etc as they are universal and made to be cured in any kind of lamp (asked brand technologists of all brands I know). Also certified brands, just dont cost a fortune.

    Client said nails all broke?

    You should probably use hard gel polish base coat. I pick base for each customer. She is the case, when nails should be strengthened (thin layer of rubber base for adhesion and then leveling with hard gel). If you dont do leveling of nails with hard base, you can use builder in a bottle. Also if...

    If you talking about CND shellac - this should come off very easy, if it doesn't - wrap with remover for longer. Use wooden stick, it is more gentle. I use efile for removal, always leave a bit of base in nail to avoid damage - i would advise this way of removal. Also removal liquids disolve...

    E-file/electric file machine

    Yes, the same. I love this drill and handle. Also pretty color :) Just buy from this seller, as I dont know if other sellers have originals. Here are pictures of mine:

    E-file/electric file machine

    This comes with blue handle. Just one more thing, there will be tax around 15-20 pounds on it.

    Filing away lifting

    Lifting around cuticle is bad nail prep. Try prepping nail better. Any lifting should be filed off. The easiest is with e-file.

    That looks like damaged nails. Like polish/acrylics was scraped with force. Or even damaged with acetone. Like a burn... I support IBX idea. That should help. And also Do not soak polish, but file it to thin layer of base coat and never file to bare nail.

    That is enough in my opinion, but as an extra - get yourself a uv steriliser that produces ozon, and leave it for 20 min in room. Amazon has them. And you will have sterile room. I have one of those too. For example: UV Sterilization Lamp Integrated Ultraviolet Germicidal Lamp with Ozone quartz...

    You dont need steriliser that cost a fortune. Here is similar to the one I use: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F323552514898

    I know that it is not required in uk to use heat steriliser, but I use it anyway. 20 min is solution, 6 hours drying period for tools (so they dont rust) and 80 min in 180 degrees in separate paper craft bags. This way you kill anything that survived after Preempt CS20.

    Which course for beginners, UK?

    You can learn in 1-2 days, if tutor is actually good. I have learnt in 2 days to do fantastic nails. I have attached pictures of nails I have done in those 2 days. But I went to Riga in Latvia and paid 230 Euros for 2 days course. All depends on tutor. So if anyone wants to do good nails, they...
