eBay Australia Guides - Gel Nails Vs Acrylic Nails - Which is Better - 12:46am[SIZE=-1]Hi, Im a fully qualified Hairdresser and Nail Technician. I own a salon in the beautiful Adelaide Hills, South Australia and I am writing this guide to ...[/SIZE]

Hope this link works! Basically its about gaining clients (bio sculpture)through bashing l&p..but it just shows she isnt very proficient with her application of l&p.

OMG!!!
I get absolutely furious with people like that: don't know jacks**t, but still go around thinking they know just about everything and have come to save the world from ignorance! And then it's up to the rest of us in the business to try and re-educate the clients about what is true and what is not... :mad:

ahhh this just makes me so mad! I found a forum the other day where l&P nails were trashed - put a big post on that one, I guess all we can do is keep educating people as best we can!

Have reported both to ebay as the first one is misrepresenting and the second one well why do you think. she shouldn't be allowed to tell you how to do nails at home as people are going be going out thinking they are proficient in a specialised area and ruin their own as well as any other unsuspecting clients nails.
My god why isnt there any regulations about this sort of thing it makes me sooooooooo ANGRY .....
Rant over
At least for now anyway:mad:

I loved the comment about what it really cost us to do a set of nails......

hello? ....clients ( most of them ) all know it's not the cost of the products we charge for .........

it is the knowledge ,education, know how of products ,and results !......

since she is a hair stylist as well .. I wonder if she only charges her clients what a hair cut ( products included ) really cost her?

she is an idiot!
peeps like these are what gives us a bad name!:mad:

I've been using brisa in my hair for years:green:

It's super shiny and flexible, with just enough hold.

Isn't there a way to report her to ebay for providing wrongfull, misleading and fraudulent information?

I tried, but couldn't find a way to do so.

She's CLEARLY ignorant and uneducated.
