Hello,

After a bit of advice please....I am currently training to be a Nail Technician, and am thinking of going down the route of being a Mobile Nail Technician - once qualified and have gained some experience. However, I have been thinking of equipment I need to invest in, and am stuck as to what to do for a desk/table, that is mobile enough for me to carry around to clients.

Any suggestions?

Thanks alot.

Sherilley

I know a lot of people start of with an ironing board. In fact, Ruth used one on a fashion shoot recently so there ye go!

Whe I used to do mobile work I had one of those little wooden "tv dinners" fold up tables, cost me about a tenner and was the best value for money going. It's lightweight and easy to carry - got mine from a cut price store but I think Ikea sell them.

Hi, i am also mobile, I bought a small table from my local camping shop its great! the legs are similar to an ironing board that have a 'scissor' action to fold them up, they come off completely and there is a place under the table to attach them when its folded down.Its white melamine so i can sanitize it easily. My husband attached a lamp to the edge that also comes off when not in use but the lamp holder is permanently fixed (if you know what i mean) so i just slot the lamp in and away i go! the best part was that it only cost me about £15! much cheaper than from a beauty supplier or the like.

Whenever you decide to get a table remember to consider the surface space you will need, I need for more when doing Wraps then when I do L&P and will probably need more space when start doing Gels in September....layout your equipment on a table and see what you feel is the minimum working space you would be comfortable with and start from their...

Oh and dont forget the height, I got a table and it was for to low to work from just gave me neck ache all the time...

Hope this helps

hi i got a mobile table from salon services (i think thats the name) an it cost me about 70 quid, i wish i had bought something cheaper first coz i hardly ever use it , i would wait until you start getting a certain amount of clients, coz you will need all your money, i spent a fortune and havent yet got such a good client base it is starting to pay for itself, just my opinion

My husband took it upon himself to get me a table (bless him).

He went to my local wholsalers and came back with on that folds away and has a height adjustment on it. When it's up it look a bit like one of those table you get in hospital over beds - but it's great, especially the height thing -no more sore neck problems, oh and it's on wheels that you can lock.

PS, i have seen it in a nail catalogue since, i'll have a look whrn i get home and see if i can find it - get back to you

If you're to be a mobile tech. (as i am!), another thing you need to bear in mind when buying a table is the weight. Some of the ones i saw in the wholesaler looked lovely but when i picked them up they weighed a ton! That's okay if you're picking it up once but if its all day and every day then its gonna start to play havoc on your back. Hope this helps.

Hey - don't know if you found a mobile nail table yet - sorry, might be a bit late but haven't been on this site for weeks!! :cry: I bought a mobile folding picnic table from woolworths for around £10 and it's perfect in every way for doing nails - great size and really light with a carry handle - if you could get one of these you're sorted.

Take care
