    Gelish hard gel availability in UK or alternative?

    Hi, I am trained in the use of hard gel for extension services and I have been using GHG for my services with very good results. What I have noticed is that nailharmonyuk has removed its GHG page completely - which I find it worrying as I still use this. Is nailharmonyuk the only official...

    Tips from services performed?

    Hi geeks, I've been asking myself this question. If you get tipped for your work done in manicures (gels, extension, etc), say £2 to £5 - sometimes £10, is that a sign that they are happy with your work? What are your experiences? Cheers.
