Your are more than welcome, its refreshing to be able too hun..Sazette said:Nice one will defo have a word with Carole and see if she can let me in on any handy hints! You have a very good point - probably best i keep with this L&P for now and not confuse the issue just yet! But saying that if creative do a try me kit will be very tempted to give that a go........will keep 11th sept in mind for sure, will be great to meet some people and pick up a few bits.
You have defo helped - Thanks
hi there.....you have to be a qualified technician to be able to purchase a creative l&p trial kit so you could buy that ok but if you like it when you try it you must then train with creative to be able to buy full size l&p products......you can purchase any other items from creative as long as you are qualified, its only l&p that you cannot buy unless creative trainedSazette said:Thanks for your reply - thats just the thing there are so many, its hard to know where to start!
Have heard creative is good, do i need to be creative trained to be able to use their L&P?
I am trained - at the moment i use Simplicite by NSI, it seems ok but lifts quite quickly but then that could be me i suppose!
Hey Jamie thanx for all the compliments but i'm not NSI trained and dont use their products. Sazette, if you want a recommendation from me it would be Ezflow as i absolutely love their l&p. Its easy to use as it virtually self-levels and i've needed to do minimal filing afterwards.gingernut said:Not to sure, but if your trained in L&P then i would hope not,
at least not to buy a try me kit.
But if its advice on NSI your looking for ask Carole Lindsay, im pretty
sure she is NSI trained and she is very helpful..
I beleive you should fully develop your skills in the product you trained in before trying to swap... As i say if its tips on NSI then Carole is the lady for you..
There is always the Geek meet on sept 11th at carole's in Barnet, i will be there and will have Creative bits with me..
Hope this helps hun
This is an excellent list, very helpful. Thank you. I am not happy with the brush I got in my NSI l&p kit, so may try the one you mention.ALEX said:Ive tried alot of L&P products because I wanted to be certain I was using what I think to be the best.
In September I left my job in a nail salon to become self employed. Since then I have tried loads and decided to stick with everything I thought was the best. I am so fussy every product I tried I had training with to make sure I was using the product correctly. Heres my list ov what I use and why. Hope this helps.
Out ov all L&P's im happy to stick with OPI Compitition 3000 because it provided me with the strongest enhancements. Clients that needed infills at 2 wks with other l&p's could happily go 3 wks with no problems. The mix ratio was easy to pick up and therefore is very consistent. The nails had less lifting using this than any other product. The pick has a lovey warm glow to it.
Ezflows nail files last longer than any other files ive tried. They also have a good shape which all allows allows great contact,allowing the job to be done quicker.
3 way buffer
I love creatives three way girlfriend buffer. It provides the best longlasting shine with minimal effort and for some reason the customers love the look ov it!
Creatives solar oil is fab. The smell, consistency and shine it produces with a buffer is wicked.
Ezflows 508. What a diamond! Helps make beautiful smooth nails and is great for producing perfect smile lines as it goes to a perfect point yet the belly ov brush is nice and thick.
I love OPI polishes and so do my customers but sometimes they don't have the exact colour im looking for so I hav recently purchased some creative ones and so far am very happy with them.
I mix my own using glitter I buy from NSI
I still test things on my mum, sister and best buddies but so far nothing has swayed me to change any ov the above.
