hi guys

after my blog saying i was struggling for models, sandi suggested a thread to ask for help

so are there any geeks in my area (southport or closish) or does anyone have family or friends they could ask, if i could do a set of nails for practise, whilst on my foundation course

thanks guys

Have you done a search on here Nick and pm'd a few geeks?
If I was closer I'd come and help you out?
Any mates that could do it for ya? My mate took days off work to be my model, say you'll throw in lunch and a free set of nails, that should entice them!

Oh, right then, go onto Vista print, make up some flyers on there, dead cheap, just with some wording advertising your services. Saying that you need models to practice on and that each set is £10, dont do it for free, doesnt give a great impression, plus you need to get some money back for products used!!

Take them up the school, local businesses, college, uni's, notice boards, large corporations.

Or run them up yourself on the PC, wont take you long.

Good luck hunni! xxxxxxxx:hug:

Hiya Nickie, didn't Frooty Moo offer you some help too? I know she hasn't been on here for a while but send her an email, she may still be able to help.

thanks guys i will bear bev and kaz in mind, was hoping for none nail techs though pmsl, dont want to feel under more pressure, (does that make sense) i would feel really awful if they were thinking "oh god shes crap" while i was doing them lol, once ive done a few more sets then maybe i could take them up on the offer

thanks again guys:hug: xxxx

Thing is a qualified tech will remember what it was like training so will have no expectations (plus they can put right anything they're not completely happy with, iykwim), and if they're geeks will offer advice along the way I would have thought...... Non Nail Techs might have higher expectations..... Plus Nail Techs will be honest with how long they lasted and wont say they floated off in the bath!

I understand where you're coming from but I reckon you're better off with geeks..... If I were in your part of the world you could use me, but I'm a bit far off, sorry!!
