    Why do gels go hot?!?!?

    Another thing I find if this happens is to lightly tap your fingers whilst curing which usually stops the sensation immediately x

    Why do gels go hot?!?!?

    Burn?? Do you mean "heat spike"? This can occur if the natural nails beds are quite thin or sometimes if the first layer of gel is applied too thickly. What does it feel like? x

    Is this too good to be true?

    I can't believe how cheap that is!!! It is identical to the one I bought from NSI a couple of years ago for £99.99 + VAT. Even the NSI one has no logo on it so I guess it's probably exactly the same lamp. It's been fine for me x

    Hi, New Geek advice needed

    Hi + welcome You could give the salons in your area a ring around and see what's on offer. Are there any new hair dressing salons that maybe don't already offer nails? You could put the idea to them. You've got nothing to lose. Good luck xx

    I do base, tip, pink then top coat (capping free edge). I find two thin coats of the white work much better than one thick coat as it also helps reduce chipping too, hth x

    Client wants natural french - can I mix white and pink to soften the white???

    I don't use acrylic but have read posts about people mixing with it so hopefully someone will reply soon to help you :). I use gel and have often wondered if you could do the same with gel as some people definately prefer a more natural look. not sure the gel would mix that well together...

    Bio sculpture postage

    I use NSI and they offer free delivery when you spend just £25 (excl. VAT) on their website. I'd let them know how good other companies are and leave it up to them to change their policy or risk losing more and more customers x

    NSI Glaze n Go

    Hi Andrea, I've use NSI too and was just wondering, do you you Glaze and Go because it's quicker than finish clear to apply? I find finish clear is mega shiney but it is quite thin so I have to freeze cure between fingers to prevent it running.
