Hi my name is Mandy and im a board house wife!! thats untill i discovered acrylic nails, and nail art, i live in Brighton and am a mum to three lively boys all under the age of three. as you can imagine life is pretty hetic. i have recently started a course on nail sculpturs acrylic and over lays, and am having a bit of a problem. I have done loads of friends and my mums for the practice, only problem is they keep lifting from the base of the nail. What am i doing wrong?? its so frustrating. the nails go on fine i have no problem with blending, they look lovely when they are done then start lifting after a few days... i would also like to say how excited i was when i found this site, haraghhh there are more geeks out there.
