Hello Louise,

I'm doing Airbrush tanning soon. I'm doing it with Su-Do.
I choose it because I'm going to offer airbrush temp. tattoos at my husbands shop. I can use this same system(diff gun though$$$) to do tanning & nails too. So, it just seemed kind of natural...(& best thing about it is as I'm doing the tattoos in hubbys shop, hes paying for the kit!! :rofl: :rofl: :mrgreen:

Hunny,
I wish it were me!!! Its a Las Vegas Showgirl. I actually do have a Showgirl outfit, (when in Rome & all that) but alas, too many Vegas Buffets & $2.49 steak & eggs at 3am, means I can no longer fit into it!! :( :(

I'd like to offer my clients instant tanning (something like St Tropez) and eyelash dying and perming as extras, but I've got my hands full just learning to do nails at the moment! :D

Good luck whatever you decided!

I do tooth gems which I get from a company in Scotland, all proper dental products at a fraction of the price of Smile gems or Tooth fairy. I have also been trained at St. Tropez tanning, which doesn`t cost anything for a tutor to come to your house and train a few people providing you spend so much on products (it was £50 when I did it). This is really easy to achieve between a few girls and a great evening in.

Hi Louise,
Smilegems may do their own training but there isn`t much to it except I believe you may have to mix the glues. The gems I got comes with a ready-to-use glue and full instructions on how to apply them. They are really popular and as they only take minutes to apply, its an easy extra income to doing nails.

Currently I have a Certificate 3 in beauty which qualifies me to do nails, waxing tinting and makeup.
I have already started my Cert 4 in Beauty Therapy which includes facials, massage etc as Michelle stated earlier. My course is modifed to part time, 1 full day a fortnight as I have already done over half of the components.

On the subject of that, Michelle I hope you enjoy it i love it...when do you start :?:

I do airbrush tanning temp tattoos and make up all with Sudo.Massage and reflexology I studied 18 years ago (shows my age)
The next big thing for me is piercing.Its starting to get really popular here in France and not many people do it.Not everyone who would like something pierced is happy to got to the local tattooist as seems to be common here.For me its a natural addition to a salon with a lot of potential (or perhaps Im crazy).
Stay cool
Michel

hi,
I qualified in 1997 and am able to do, eyelash and brow tinting, waxing, facials, make up & make up lessons, manicures, pedicures, baby massage, nose and ear piercing, airbrush tanning, and airbrush tattoo's.
Since then i have also taken a course in nutritional therapy, this is also quite nice.

However now I am just interested more than anything in Nails and out of all of it find this to be the most rewarding, I still have loads and loads to learn yet and still to go on a creative course, but I think it is what interests you the most that you should concentrate on, rather than what is most popular.

I could probably set up quite a nice little business doing all the things I am already trained to do, but I would rather set it up in Nails it is more of a passion for me.

Good luck and all the very best in what you choose i am sure you will find great rewards
