hi, i am still new to nails, i am a little confused when some techs talk about clients nails being on for upto 8 weeks!! i was taught to rebalance every 2 and soak off very 4? do i need to think a little more outside of the box?? i am a little shy on trying things if i havn't been told that it is ok!! thanks:confused:

There is no need to soak off every 4 weeks. As long as you are working ok you can continue to rebalance.
Who did you train with?

Most clients don't bother about that, they are quite happy to see their natural nail growing and eventually it becomes a natural nail overlay....if there are no problems, you don't need to saok off, just keep on rebalancing!

I find it unbelivable that you were taught to soak off every 4 weeks :eek: You just re-balance and create a new white smile line as the nails grow.

I've not done any EN enhancement training, do you do a rebalance course or is it all included in the one course?
Natural rebalance is pretty straightforward you need to check your apexes etc...P&W is a little more complicated..you should rebalance so that the natural nail isn't seen on the smile line. Below is not a problem mate.

You shouldn't need to soak them off every 4 week.:eek: Two weeks after doing your clients nails do an infill, when they come back two weeks later do a rebalance. This is the same as an infill but you need to build up your stress area as it would've moved. :)

There's plenty of courses with different companies so the choice is yours. EN are a really good start so you will know a lot when you begin.
