I am having a quiet week this week, so don't worry. It happens every now and then.

I had nothing booked in for this wk at all, but then yesterday I've taken bookings for 2 spray tans tomorrow, another 2 on Friday, a manicure and I've also got to go to college to do a massage for a new client! And there was me thinking I wouldn't be earning a penny this wk! So don't abandon all hope!! Xx

I'm nails too, and this week's been busy (I only work evenings tho) it was last week I was soo quiet I was a bit worried. But its picking up for rest of month thankfully :) do any of you find that with nails you get a lot of last minute bookings? I have a few regulars who always book their next appointment, but a lot of my bookings are taken that week for that week. Doesn't bother me, just wondered if anyone else is the same? Xx

I'm the opposite. Last week was fairly quiet for me but it's busy for the next few weeks. Seems it's all or nothing :)

I'm dead too! had 3 clients last week, none this week & only 1 booked in for next week up to now, which is annoying as I'm on holiday in a fortnight

so i was kinda hoping I'd be busy before I go away to make up for no income while I'm not here working.. but no such luck :( x

snap we were manic and thrilled to have "broken the back" after breaking our first year. this week hell.

seriously bad, my apprentice is cleaning the fridge and i am removing my acrylics. next week tho, brilliant. i would like some sort of consistency but i guess that takes a while to get to that stage....be thankful for the busy days but yes its taking me 3 days to bring in what i ws bringing in on 1 day.

the nail technician and beauty therapist are exactly the same. jubilee weekend and weather not helping. leaflets arrive today, yes more and different ones, and being distributed asap!
