I agree 100%! :biggrin:hiya, if you are just staring out i would highly recommend you dont get a "real" manicure talbe. i had one before, they are bulky, expensive AND heavy. I have just got a fold up tv dinner table which i put a towel on and works great. imagine having to go do a manicure in a block of flats, having to carry this real table up the stairs PLUS your equipment. i have 2 foldable fishing stools also, one for me to sit on and the other if they are having their toes painted. i always sit them on their sofa for nails so dont take a chair for them. hths x
get a wooden tv table from ebay. thats what i did was like £10 or something. i find the plastic ones are too flimsey - i had one of those and was so wobbly! but the wooden one is sturdy works a treat. xI agree 100%! :biggrin:
I've bought three tables so far - a manicure stool/table, a portable manicure trolley and plastic tv tables and i'm still not happy! Think i'm going to try the camping table next!! :biggrin:
What pine/rosewood one? got one of those too.get a wooden tv table from ebay. thats what i did was like £10 or something. i find the plastic ones are too flimsey - i had one of those and was so wobbly! but the wooden one is sturdy works a treat. x
tbh would you care if a therapist came to you with a huge fantastic salon-looking manicure table or a little fold-up wooden table? I agree they are paying for professionalism but at the same time, I don't think they would think you would be less professional taking a fold-up lightweight table as they are not judging you on table, they are judging your standard of work and products. Some techs dont even take a table to their clientsGreat tip thanks Carly!
I'm really stuck as to what to do as I want a table that looks nice and professional but also lightweight and easy for me to carry seeing as will be carrying my chair and nail trolley as well.
Oh right haha, deffo not ironing board, i just couldnt bring myself to ask anyone to get theirs out i think i should invent a lightweight one that fold up compactly and has chairs within it AND a pedicure stn - how well would that sell?!What pine/rosewood one? got one of those too.
I like lots of room to work and kept knocking stuff off. I'm just difficult to please! The best thing for me is an ironing board, but i don't think i'd get away with that!!
I think this looks just right for when starting out, and once you have your nice coloured towels/lamp/etc etc I think it would look great. I might get this for myselfI've got this from The Range:
Buy the Camp Table 80x60 at The Range.
It's supposed to be a camp table but I find it works perfectly - only £14.99 and very light but sturdy and with it's own carry handle. Personally I don't think you can go wrong with this unless you particularly want a "real" mobile table.
My friend used that when first starting out in a salon and we said good job she wasn't mobile as it was sooo heavy :-/I've got this one Foldable Portable Manicure Nail Art Table Desk Station Hand Cushion Bag Drawer | eBay
I bought mine from another seller, but can't find it now x
