Two new nail techs have opened up shop right on my door step - well on my nail table actually!

They are seriously undercutting my prices too, the younger one is charging £4 and the older one is knocking them out for £2 a full set!

Here's some photos of their work...so Geeks, should I be worried?:lol:

Ok, I give up! :cry: The "competition" wins!

I've booked you into their diaries Adele. You'll have to collect them though as they're not allowed out on their own, and make sure they are back by 8pm please cos thats bed time:lol:. Oh, and you'll need a hoover to hand as they are a bit messy!

Yvette, just tell OH that he ran out of paint or something and didn't have time to put the M on:green:

I nearly fell of chair when I read those prices, I thought you were serious. That's roughly $5/$10 here, we charge at least $80.

Pretty tough competition though, I couldn't even colour in between the lines at that age, lol.
