Hiya Georgie Peorgie Puddin & Pie :D

Welcome to the boards, aren't they wonderful? I learn so so much from these guys - if I had to name one thing that has got me to the level I am today, it's not my products, certainly wasn't my schooling - it was the resources I have found on the net.

So I hope you will take advantage of the knowledge being shared here and contribute your experiences :)

How long have you been doing nails? What products do you use? Tell us a little about where you work...

Hi there and welcome to the sacred nail geeks site.
You are especially welcome if you come from UTAH which as I'm sure you know is the Geek's home town so to speak.
He gets a little lonely from time to time as not everyone understands quite the way his mind works - perhaps other Utahans DO?? :p

Georgie - you are already showing great promise by finding this site! Isn't it terrific.

Honestly as a novice myself I am amazed that some of the more basic (stupid) questions that I have posted have been answered so quickly and helpfully - no one makes you feel foolish ... everyone seems to accept that beginners need to question things, unlike some other groups around.

You've joined the best here.

Look forward to reading your posts ... and the replies!

Love
Sue

Where to start?.. Let's see..... I've been doing nails for about 2 years, although just finished school, and licensed. ( Licensure is new to Utah). Most techs here in my area "grandfathered" into their licenses... but I chose not to... and am I glad for that! Although the schooling was minimal ( 200 hrs) it helped tremendously! I also have the advantage of having my best friend being in the nail industry for many years. I forget her "title", but she opens new schools, teaches the instructors to instruct, etc.... She has been wonderful to help me.
Instead of working for someone else, I chose to open my own nails only salon. I know it is a HUGE jump on my part, but I just wasn't willing to work with the knowledge I do have in an old school environment, and sadly enough, that is all there is in my area. The city I have the salon in doesn't even have a "code" for ventilation in a salon setting....( I put a system in anyways....lol) However... I have been open for almost 3 weeks now, and although slow ( building clientelle always is...) It is going well. I use mostly cnd products ( I love them), but am finding ez flow colors very popular here. I am also "dabbling" in the 3D direction... I am the only tech in town that offers it as a service, and the response has been wonderful! Well! lol That was a spew and 1/2! lol sorry so long...

And like Michelle said, I learned so much more from these boards than I did in school. It is a great way to ask questions, exchange tips and see beautiful pics of nail art for inspiration! Good luck andI look forward to your posts! :D

A warm welcome from us here in not so sunny London.
Enjoy the board, I know I do............... the best Techies hang out here, well they must be cause they are on this board 8)
There is always someone on hand to help out , no matter how small or big the question is. Also you can have a rant and rave about things that bug you. We might not agree with one another at all times, but that's what makes this board so much fun, and we always make up at the end of the day.................. Just like a family does....................
And boy our family has grown.................
love Ruth :D
