I recently had to give up the gel course i was doing as i was having really bad reactions when practicing but after a few experiments i now know its the glue I'm allergic to, so I'm thinking I'd like to start a course in sculpting and would just like a couple of peoples opinions on if it would be worth it with just been able to offer sculpted nails etc
thanks! :green:
I think you could have a very successful business only offering sculpted nails.

Which adhesive were you using?

It may be that there are other adhesives which you would not have a reaction to.

There are certain nail styles which are not suited to sculpting - in these cases you may be fine if you use gloves whilst working on these clients.
Absolutly it is deffo worth it, 80% of my work is sculpts, and there is so many things u can do with them give it a go u wont be dissapointed HTH
Thanks a lot for your reply, i've used all different adhesives and also tried wearing gloves and a mask but i always have a very bad reaction with asthma etc which is why i would only be able to offer the sculpting
go for it!
all i know is that i've been doing sculpted nails for so many years i've lost track!
that is 100 % of the time.
try it, i think you'll love it!

CRIKEY under an hour for a full set of sculpts!!! thats good... buttell me.. does anyone here use pinching tubes to get that lovely c curve???
Sculpter here is well... havent met a nail yet that I could not sculpt on or off... I use a combination of re-usable teflon forms, disposible forms, and am developing a form similar to the acra-c form (since its no longer possible to buy them!) there is a market for sculpted nails.. sculpting is also more rewarding I find, but then I am the artistic type lol (and times are great with sculpting 1.15 is around adverage)
