Hi everyone!

I'm a somewhat new nail tech. I know enough to give a good quality service, but have alot of room to expand and learn new things.

I'm self-taught from 2016 but only started taking it seriously in 2019. I love GlamPro gel and I am currently learning acrylic with monomer.
(Any advice are welcome)

It is not acceptable practise to comment on the nails of a DIYer because we are a professional forum for qualified, newly qualified, learners or those wishing to become qualified.

If as you say you are eager to learn new things and expand your knowledge then the best route is to seek a professional qualification.

Having a formal Diploma will set you apart from the DIY tech you currently are and will elevate your confidence.

I don't do acrylic myself , but again go down the training route and become a great nail tech.

Hi, I am really serious about this. Yes I do not have a qualification, but I'm busy building something for myself to get multiple qualifications. I wasn't lucky to have parents that support my career choice, I have to pay myself if I want anything in this industry. If wasn't serious I wouldn't be on this forum to ask for advice like I already did.

I know you mean well and there may be people joking around, but please in the future, don't judge someone from only one post😉

That's really great that you are super serious about gaining your qualifications. I was not judging you negatively , I was making an assumption based upon the details you have provided and photographs. That's all I have to go on , but as you say "All advice welcome".....well really it isn't is it? I meant no harm whatever.

Like you I also had no family support and paid for everything I achieved so don't judge me either please.

Sadly the written word gets taken badly either way and what is clear is that you have the energy to build yourself a great business for you and your family, and so I do wish you well.

It’s best to get a light certificate. You won’t be able to get insurance to work on clients without it. If you e been practicing this long you’ll sail thru it.
Plus you might learn some new stuff.
