I really feel that some more help with an instructor would help you. Target the specific area in which you need help and work together on that. It is very difficult to explain how to with what yuare doing.

3,2,1 makes no sense at all to me. 123 is the way I count and the way the majority of nail techs work .. because it is logical. Also I always work in two colours .. NEVER just one so this method is out as far as I am concerned. My business is to enhance what the client has not just give her what she has already got.


You talk of DRY prep in other posts. How can you soften the skin and remove cuticle effectively and in a pampering way with a dry prep? It is not necessary nor is it nice for the client. Using a beautiful creams to soften the skin before prep is so much nicer and the clients love it and it is not detrimental to the product adhereing to the plate so why not do it the professional way?

I just think you need to get some real help and real live help. You obviously care and want to progress so that is my advice. Try some different trainers and get a different perspective on things. I'm not saying try a different product necessarily, but a different trainer may give you more insight.

I'm sure you are BUT .....

Why not try a different method if this one is not working for you? Try the logical way 1, 2 and 3. It is the way the majority of nail techs work and the way that is easiest to teach beginners which is why I use it. Seriously, I have girls leave my class room iandin 5 days they are turning outr better work than I see in allot of salons. It works, so why not giveit a go.
