Hi,

I am a technician from Sweden and i have seen nailtechs using this http://z.about.com/d/homerepair/1/0/m/-/-/-/clamp.jpg

They use it to pinch the customers nails at the salon in order to create competition nails. I was wondering if this isn,t risky to use??? i have to say that the results looked good but i can,t help imagining it going wrong at a certain point with these things.

Opinions????

These are clamps that you can buy in any tool store between the screwdrivers and saws :).

I was little bit shocked when i saw that... i thought you got to be kidding me that any customer wants that hanging on her nail in order to get a deep pinch :rolleyes:... but they do...

hmmm. i think my husband's got one of these in his toolbox(he' a plumber)
i don't think i'll be using one in a hurry...think it might scare my clients.

mind you it's a tempting thought with 1 or 2 clients (only joking) hehe

The woman i took over from used this all the time. When i use one of those pinching tweezers and i ask if it feels uncomfortable or so they laugh and say...this is nothing compared to that other thing.

Never heard of anyone using that before !!!

When I was mobile, i used to have a big pair of plyers in my trolley case, and when I went to a new client I would set out my stuff & tools etc and put these out on my towel as well!!!! Their faces were a picture & everyone always said OMG what are those for????
'To open my glue bottle!' I'd reply sweetly!! The look on their faces then was pure relief!!:lol::lol:

Not being mobile, I don't have ths problem anymore, as my glue stays standing up on my nail desk. I also use gelbond, so it doesn't happen.

Thankyou...thankyou....:hug:
for some strange reason I have never thought to actually keep pliers nearby for these times,
I have had my feller open them with pliers before..
But if he's not here, I have spent a long long time searching,
Good excuse to by myself the pretty pink tool kit i have seen :green:
