    Smart Polish?

    tried it, found it dull ........ yes it's easy, it's kinda like a cheap paint-job on a car, if you want gloss, a real lustre, you need a topcoat, for the price, I think it's expensive ........ people will buy it (no doubt) i think everyone should, just to see what you are missing out on, then...

    Nail Technicians-The poor relation?

    An interesting discussion, I liked the "nail damage nails perspective" from a beauty therapist, I believe there are so many beauty products now, they all bitch about each other (may improve, actually they do) but they are so bloody competitive they rely on pushing sales (many of the services are...

    Smart Polish?

    I asked for details on the "science" aspect of the product on their Facebook page, I was told it was a trade secret (fair enough) but I would like to understand how it works ...... CND will tell you how all their products work .... they can, because they make them. Very few ...... "I'm going to...

    Cuticle on bitten nails?

    Sometimes you have to cut, but you have to know the difference between dead and live, I moisturise, then dehydrate, then it makes it quite obvious what is dead and what is live ..... BUT, you have to have good eyes and a steady hand, if you don't .... don't do it at all, I couldn't possible...

    Smart Polish?

    Time will tell, before anything else, I like to see some "science" behind a product, unless a company had an R&D department devoted to just that "research and development" it is more than probable that it is a mass produced, vat produced product rebottled. Really you cannot trial these polishes...

    Another gel nail polish system discounted for non professionals

    It's more damaging, needs more prep, needs more soaking, needs scraping off, has no science at all behind it, but if that's the kind of work you do and the kind of product you like, who am I to stop you ? ..... YOU CAN OFTEN DEFINE YOURSELF AND YOUR BUSINESS BY THE PRODUCT YOU USE .... can...

    Is cheap always poor quality?

    Many will always try and save money by buying cheaper, usually it works out more expensive .... because it usually turns out to be crap, then your buy again and again until you reach a RESPECTABLE product. Would you buy cheap crap to use on yourself ? Probably not, so why buy crap to use on...

    Lost a client due to enforcing my cancellation policy

    I have a 3 hour cancellation policy, I think 24 hours is way too long, so much can happen in that time. Question: If you were sick and gave clients less than 24 hrs notice, do you reverse you cancellation policy and credit them a free appointment ?

    How to ask a transgender female, if she is, for intimate waxing?

    The above is very tactful and respectful, most transsexuals will be "tucked" for any kind of service like this, it's just the way they are, there is no no to be fearful .... OR, you can just come straight out and say "can you put the dog under the house luv" with a smile, they will get the...

    How can I get my dappen dish clean?

    the most important thing is to learn from your mistakes, not the fact "I knew it, but didn't have the time", you can go on using excuses forever .... If nobody jumps on you nobody learns, what's the point of saying "you poor dear" when in fact you need a kick up the bum :-) Particularly when...

    Natural nail filing technique

    I've never made a natural nail split EVER, I would use a 240 grit on women's nails if you finish it off and polish the free-edge to a fine finish, it's all the same, you do have to gentle to a certain degree
