Well girls,
What ever next I ask cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3624459632&category=11870 myself......................


So where is the health and saftey education and how about insurance afterwards, contra-indications..................
No mention of that is there................

This is the sort of thing, that we come up against and then the poor girl who buys it, thinks she is a fully qualified Technician..............
Oh well there is one born every minute........suckers.........

Makes me mad
love Ruth xxxxxx need a large Voddy and orange now

I e-mailed the seller to see if this will give me a qualification to get insurance duh LOL.

I will keep you posted.

I am sure there are rules on e-bay about what you can and cannot claim as being true.

There was someone else a while back selling courses for tail techs and I think she was reported and the auction closed.

Sick making.
It looks like the set my client bought from QVC for £50.
She thought she didnt need me anymore and decided to do her nails for herself. As I made it look so easy she decided she would save a few bucks. :D

She was back after a few weeks. It wasn't easy after all :oops:

Bless her.

It is definitely a pet peeve of mine (and I'm sure of many of my fellow professionals) when others have so little respect for the skill and the knowledge involved in doing what we do well. I wonder why they think it is all so easy??

Could it be that they think we stick plastic nails on like you can buy at the chemist/drugstore? Most of us tried that before the age of 14!!

Or are there just a bunch of greedy ba----ds out there who just see $$$$ and want to cash in on what they think is a trend? Some trend ... it has lasted more than 25 years and has grown every year!!

Look at some of the corporations who have got involved like Phillips and Beneton to name 2. These people don't put their money into something unless they see big bucks. Trouble is they all want it tomorrow ... don't believe in education (they want to have girls trained in 2-3 days and then churning out nails in the salon as soon as the course has ended ... BELIEVE me I know all about this one. NONE of them has succeeded because they are all want short term gain and their heart is not in it. No matter what advice you give the suits, they know better ... well some of them know differently now and it has cost them their shirt!! Cor!!! It takes longer to train to work at Starbucks!!

Just read the ad on ebay and its awful. :shock: Bet its just the Argos kit with a few pages of cr*p about setting up a business that someone has printed out off their PC. :x Instant ££££ for the seller - just hope nobody buys it.

I had a peek at the Ebay thing too - looks like he/she is selling four altogether, but if you look at their other auctions they are selling similar things - just adding the same old Business Plan to them all. I've put all the nail tech ones on my 'watch list' and am considering sending a message to any bidders to let them know they are wasting their money and why.

It looks exactly like the Rio kit from Argos which retailed at £49.99, so whatever paperwork has been added is worth the same again, I think not......how on earth do they get away with it??????

Hi Georgie,
Depends on what wattage Millenium needs to cure. I have heard that the Rio lamps are only 11 watts and that replacement bulbs are hard to come by.
I bought a 6 watt lamp a while back (in my naivety) from a certain 'training school' it kills me to leave them nameless - its still in the box!!.
I now use a 36 watt lamp. To use coloured/white gel I still have to cure for 3 minutes - even with 36 watts.

I have to say that my lamp is only a 9watt but I`ve never had any trouble with it at all. It cures all the different gels I have tried (and I`ve tried a few)
The Rio lamp has no reflection so the nails have to be perfectly straight for the product to cure. I did have a look at this lamp for the same reason (it was cheap) but it didn`t cure anything so I took it back and will only buy professional now, although I was also curious to see how easy it was for people to think they were nail technicians once owning it and following the instructions

thank you have answered our question for us the problem was it was not curing evenly so this would be because it has no reflection maybe she can take it back and i now know not to buy one . thanks for the advice sometimes you don't ask enough questions before buying because you don't want to appear thick!
