Okay there have been a lot of peeps with hang ups lately (including myself) when posting in case they get "shot down in flames" so I think it's time to get back to having fun on this site lol! So with the theme running about ping-pong nails I'd like to tell you how I do my nails - very cheap cos most products can be found in your kitchen!

Begin with consultation - what are the best pubs in town

I start by sanitising - bit of bleach works wonders - you know the one that kills 99% of germs.

Then it's the cuticles, push back with a desert knife and cut liberally with kitchen scissors

prepare nail plate with sand paper - only a fine grit though, wouldn't want to do any damage.

apply tips (tips, tips what can I use for tips) Okay let's sculpt with tin foil cos I can't think what to use for tips.

Apply white toothpaste gel (well I'm a gel girl so you really didn't expect me to find a substitute for l&p did you!) to zone one, and then pink toothpaste gel (you could use blue for a special nail art effect) to zones 2 & 3 - not too thick mind wouldn't want them to look unnatural!

Cure in microwave for 3mins

Buff to a high shine!!!

Sell Flora oil as aftercare
Hope I haven't missed anything ...................... unless you know better!

Errrmmmm, well that might be a little tricky for me to say as i'm not a gel gal!! Maybe you are over-curing?? I know when you cook bacon it gets curly so maybe your nails are frazzling in the microwave! :)

Could be !!! but with that winning formula if they find out about it im sure they'll say they cant let anyone else compete this year !!!

oh well Olympia it is then, watch out others dont copy your winning ways hun ! you'll need to start thinking of trolley etc for the microwave as they can be quite heavy too

Well obviously the way to solve lifting is to use either Sellotape or Superglue - these are well known and tested methods :lol:

Hi Sarah,

Just a suggestion for anyone wanting to have a go at your ping pong - shming shmong nails but feel they cannot as they are L&P girls.....why not use flour and water for the whites (plain flour of course!, we don't want 'self-raising' whites!!!!!) and icing sugar with a dash of pink food colouring for the pinks :lol: :lol:

This is a great thread.....thanks for starting it......I am still chuckling!!!!! Will be watching your style closely at Excel :eek: :D
