I have done all my training at the Leeds branch of Designer nails and was really enthusiastic about it all. The only thing is now is that I am thinking of giving it all up as I never get a client to come back as they are suffering from lifting. I make sure that I do my prep right and spend as much time as I can on it. Someone has suggested that I get a smaller brush as the one provided in the starter kit is very big and alien to me. I was origionally trained as a photographic artist and I am used to stippling with my brush instead of pressing down.
