Just wondering if it is just me, but I can take up to 3 hours to do a nice set of pink and whites using L&P. However, I can do a decent set of fibreglass in about 1 hour. I assume that it is just my lack of technique with L&P and I know I will get quicker in time. (Still sculpting quite a bit with my file - sorry GMG!)

For all you experienced geeks out there, do you find that you can do fibreglass/fabric a lot quicker than L&P?

To date also, I prefer the result with fibreglass.

Your views would be appreciated.:confused:

I could only truely answer this once I am as expierenced in L&P as much as I am fibreglass..

I first learned to apply nail enhancments with Fibreglass and my first set took 5 hours now it can take from 1 1/2 to 2 hours depending on the client and the situation (i am mobile and sometimes have to work in an awkward position which slows me down)

With L & P I am faster but doing my first sets (10 to date) due to my skills learnt doing Fibreglass, as my first set took my 2 hours.

But having said this two weeks ago I did a rebalance in 1 1/2 and my next client was 2 hours!!!

Personally i find L&P quicker when I get a set of fabric that a curing slower as i have not put enough activator on...

At the end of the day i think it is down to the technican and the skill and working practices he or she has and the system he or she find easier to use.

Have to say i used to take 5 hours to do a set of permanant french L&P, now it takes me 2 1/2 hours. fibreglass i have to say i find alot easier and it takes me about 1 1/2 hours i think as i've only just started to do it, thanks to Carole.

I think once you have been taught the right techniques in any system, especially L&P it helps you no end in whatever system you do after that.

i can do a set of l&p in about 1hr if i dont natter too much but i always think its much nicer if they aren't in any hurry ( like on a lunch break) to do some more client bonding becuase quite often i find my clients say they come here because they also like to talk to someone, whether that be laughing or crying with them its a known fact we women just love to talk don't we? wel i do anyway........

so i think the longest a set can take me is about two hours, but generally i book 1 hr 15 to be on the safe side!
obviously they come for fab nails too of course!!!!!

take care geekies

I take 1 1/2 for a full set of fibreglass.............. This allows for a good prep and a good service, with a little friendly natter............
The same for my L&P, prep and service and natter...............
I have been doing Fibreglass for 13 years now..........L&P for a lot less time

But I really dont think that speed is important , quality is..................
I look at it this way....my clients pay me for 1 1/2 hr of my time and thats what they get..............unrushed, unpushed ouf of the chair service........
A nail expirience not a nail race lol..................

Your speed will increase with expirience and practice...........
But it's the quality a client will remember not the speed...........unless they are really pushed for time and you have promised them to be out within and 1 1/2 and they are still there 3 hours later...................
Just my thoughts
