Hi Groovy - No you don't have to be trained to buy Backscratchers - Layla is the PERFECT example (no offense sweetie). You can buy it on QVC and they are nothing to do with CND!! Just to put ya'll in the picgroovynails said:backscratchers and creative are different companies. backscratcher is the fibre glasss system from supernails. and i think you are supposed to be trained with backscratcher before you can buy from them.
