Every geek on here is going to have a different opinion on this! ;)

Best bet? Go to a show and watch products "in action" or ask your local beauty supply for a variety of samples.

Remember that using them without the manufacturers specific instructions might not necessarily show you how the product is best worked, that's why trade shows are at the top of my list.

What system are you using at college if you are a student?
What ever you are using you are beter off using that till you get used to how the products work.
Also while you are practicing charge £5.00 to cover the costs and then buy new products.

i think if you are begging people to be your model ( like i used to) you shouldn't charge, lets face it you wouldn't charge your nail trainer hand, but if people are asking you to do thier nails then i would ask for a little bit of money to cover the costs of products. you will see all of the money you have paid out and more come back eventually.

i was the same as glynis (peter pan) i thought people were doing me the favour so i didnt charge either.i wish i had the courage to ask them for abit of money though as i feel they may have looked after there nails better but at the same time after i had qualified i did get some regular clients out them people.so i cant complain to much.you do what you think is right.
