    Why are there so many 'messers' around?

    Well this was super interesting! (If not a little tiring to read! Haha) I think cost and education are actually very big issues in this (except for cleanliness which is pure laziness!) Well if it's still a 'well-known' company which offers very affordable training and products compared to...

    I lease a station to do nails but salon owner wants me to run the salon for free

    I used to rent tables a few years ago when I first began. My first salon was great and she had a receptionist and would always warn me in advance if there she not going to be in. This was rare but I didn't mind becuase she was a good caring boss. The second salon boss expected the same as...

    Using other people's photos

    This really bugs me too, I actually found 2 local technicians who had other people's work on their website too - but the only reason I know this is because I now have their clients who told me they were rubbish! 1 of them promoted herself as a Star Nails trainer and took 4 hours on an infill...

    Pink for French Manicure help

    Hi Geeks, I'm sure this has been answered many times but I can't find it anywhere on here, just need some advice please! I don't really like CND's pinks for the manicures, they are too light, my fave is Rose water, but again too light. I can't seem to find a really nice 'full healthy pinky'...

    CND at Excel - Any Offers??

    Oh cool, thanks so much! I guess they must be doing something if they're going to have 'exclusive show buy-in offers.' I think it might be worth making the trip just in case then! :) Thanks again! :hug:

    Special offer on nails

    It is always worth doing a special offer to gain some practice as long as you make it clear you are practicing hence the price. I never like to do these special offers for practice to new clients because I always feel they wouldn't be happy once the price goes up! Friends and family are always...

    just can't get my polishing perfect!

    There is no need to worry :hug: Beginners and experienced techs have this problem I think! Just be sure never to avoid polishing because you are worried! Mainly it will come down to technique and practice but if you make a mistake and, lets say, the polish pools a little into the cuticles...

    Can somebody please have a look?

    It's a lovely first website, but Home pages with loads of writing always put me off to be honest. I hate scrolling and scrolling and scrolling! I know it's really hard to cut down but I personally would keep the first 3 paragraphs and that's it. I would place the rest of the remaining...

    NVQ needed for Teaching?

    wow so much to it! Thank you so much! I didn't think into great detail about what else it would involve like homework etc tbh! At least I know what to expect and can have a good think on it now and start somewhere. Thanks again! :hug:

    Loyalty Cards

    I have tried it and found it hit and miss tbh. Loyal clients will always stay loyal if you provide a professional service. I felt like I lost out financially, but when I stopped it no one left me, everyone was just as happy and understood when I explained to them. If you want to try it, just...

    NVQ needed for Teaching?

    Hi all, I am wondering if anyone could help please! I love doing nails but may need to give it up because of circumstances at home :( I am a home based salon and was just about to revamp the whole place for Christmas but may have to give it up for good instead! :cry: I did a beauty course a...

    Laser hair removal advice

    Hi Cirrus, I have been having laser hair removal for a few years now and highly recommened it, but you do need to do your research first! I have been to 4 different places to have it done (which does not sound good I know!) They were all for IPL and now i'm going to have actual Laser done...

    Hiya, I got mine too and wanted to show all the effects. I use one of those colour pop stand up displays. (You can get them from Ebay for about £10-£15 for a 64 display set.) I did this with the old Creative collection and clients love the fact that you can pull them out to see how they'd look...

    Which nail service do you offer?

    I do both but l&p on hands & gel on feet. (I just can't work at all well with gel on fingernails!) I also have a few people asking for gel when they first ring and I always ask 'why?' normally it's the same rubbish 'its better for your nails' etc but a new one I had was 'well my nails will be...

    Favorite Acrylic Brush?

    Pro Styler for me too, I love it, keep my old one for glitter nails and my spanking new one is just perfect! I tried the "big people's" Ultra Sculptor and couldn't use it to save my life!

    So you could call me greedy because I sold my stuff on Ebay?? lol - Yes, my business was in a position of going under, but no, I was being greedy and thought - oooh, look at all that tonnes of money I could make!!! But yes it was about money, but because I really needed it. And if that makes...

    I think this will have to be one of those "agree to disagree" situations. I think ALOT of people buy & sell from on Ebay off this site but are too embarrassed to admit to it. I buy and sell off of Ebay and after 4 years of trading - touch wood - I have never had a problem. I had a bad stint...
