I'd say no, it's the most popular service.

Have your thought about going back for more training or maybe converting to creative and having a one to one?

When you are working in a salon or mobile about 80% of your business is rebalancing and if you can't rebalance the nails to look as they did the first time = you'd be pretty stuffed.

It would be a lot of money to waste advertising for new clients when you wouldn't be able to perform the service needed to keep them.

Tammy's right about the amount of work being P&W's.
I would say 90% of mine is P&W, with rebalances being the most of it.

You ought to book some more training and have a 1-2-1 for it hun.
I can't tell you how quickly you will pick it up once you've been able to sit down with a trainer and have it shown to you step by step.

And then it's down to practise......xx

I think glitter tips are easier to do than p/w because the glitter is very dense and doesn't contain the pigment that a white powder does, you use it very thin and it's easier to move your smile line when you need to.

Just keep on practicing and take a course with a reputable company who will be able to help you with this.....when you are shown and also watch, it all becomes so much clearer and easier.

Nothing wrong with doing your white in the same way as you describe here that you do your glitter.

You need a one to one class or skill builders class with creative,
i took a skill builders class the week before opening my little salon and it made the world of difference with the nails i was producing and my confidence

I'm afraid, the answer is just practice. A 1-2-1 may help you steer in the right direction, but then it is still down to practice.

Rebalancing pink and whites will be 80 % of your regular income so you need to master it. Invest in a 1-2-1, buy a cheap box of nail tips and practice EVERY night, till you master it:hug:

I have the same problem lisa. I can do glitter but can't do whites. My smile lines don't smile or are not symetrical and they are eith too thick or have lumps/holes in the white. I am pretty sure part of it is mix ratio just can't get it right with the white!
