Not much, a few extra minutes.Geeg or anyone else whose been using shellac a little longer, have you worn Shellac for a period over 2 weeks? How much longer are we talking to remove after this time?
So your Shellac can bond to the clean, temporarily dehydrated nail plate BEFORE the oils and moisturising agents in your SpaManicure or SpaPedicure products penetrate into the nail.I read on the thread that the recommended way to do a spa treatment is to apply the shellac after prep and then do the spa components.
Does anybody that went to the event know why this is the case?
It will do, lol It felt weird for me the first few times. But I like doing it this way now because I get all the practical nail stuff sorted first, then the client and I can relax into the massage and pamper knowing we don't have to mess around with wet polish at the end of the treatment. And they are soooo amazed that the Shellac stays perfect and shinny after all the exfoliation/massage/paraffin wax/etc, gives her an extra wee buzz - something else to tell her friends, "..and you know she did it all in a different order this time because the Shellac is dry right away, it's really amazing...."Thanks Fee
It will feel a bit weird doing it backwards to start with lol
CND Almond Milk Bath is such a lovely productin my manicure procedure I soak the nails in CND Almond bath, which is quite oily, before I apply cuticle remover and do cuticle work. Can I not do this with Shellac? would you just soak nails/cuticles in warm water???
Me too.I am really concerned that some of you are charging way too cheap for you manicures!
You are using premium products and should charge accordingly!
Sharon - how much will you charge for removal alone?As for prices I think I have decided at last!
My file and polish alone is £7 and full manicure £12
I was thinking £15 for shellac (file & polish)
Making it up to £20 for full manicure, inc, exfoliating, lotion etc.
I will advise that removal is included in the £15 or £20 if they return for a new colour. i.e. they wont pay extra for removal.
Any feedback would be appreciated.
I appreciate you are working from home. The problem being if you charge a too cheap price for your treatments you arent actually going to be making any money so what is the point in doing the treatment anyway.I am aware my prices seem cheap. However I work from my home salon and clients expect a lower price than that of a salon, regardless of product used.
I charge £25 for minx toes but business has been fairly slow so far. I think people find that a bit too expensive. I really want to attract regular clients with shellac and i think with a reasonable price this may do the trick.
I will however consider saying it is an opening offer and see how it goes. Once folk get hooked I could increase prices if I feel the need.
I thought of £5 for removal alone as it would only take around £20 mins of my time.
