Congratulations Kells, that's fantastic news. Its always nerve wracking having a new client: i get all jittery every time!!! You'll be fine! As far as i understand it, the important thing with overlay is to "cap" the edges ie. make sure the product goes over the edge of the free edge (not explaining this very well am i??). If you want to buy MTW you will need to fax your certificate to Designer Nails before they set you up an account so dont leave it too long!

Hey Kelly, More than white is really easy to use and you can use a brush dipped in Nail Fresh to correct and wonky lines (if needed) but rememeber she might not want the permanant french look!, hope this helps

what does this mean
You know when you do a natural nail overlay it can sometimes chip at the edge? Well the way that you bring the product over the tip is called "capping the edge".

Just try to remain calm and just make sure you do a thorough consultation so you know exactly what your client wants, find out if she has had enhancements before, any problems before and as others have siad she may not want the french look.

Don't work yourself up over it too much, i still get nervous when its a new client, you wouldn't be a good tech if you didn't worry. It means you care about your client.

Chin up, you can do it, i'm here if you need help.

Oh Kelly you have no need to concern yourself with your smile lines, try and chill out a bit and stop worrying or you`ll end up too nervous to enjoy your new client.
I`m here if you need me too, you have my number and I`ll help all i can.

You`d be more than welcome to come and join us Sue, its a fair way to drive but worth it, and you wouldn`t have to drive back home the same night, you could stop over and share a bottle with us, or was that me?????????
Maybe we should call these meetings, sleepovers..........
