I am sort of in a buffer transition right now. I was conflicted because I felt that I needed to find a buffer that was inexpensive enough for me to toss after every client, or I could immerse in my Marvicide without ruining it. So I had been searching and trying different things.
Well then I read Vicki Peters article in March Nailpro about sanitation, disinfection, sterilization. It was a great article.
So now I am washing the obvious junk off my files and buffers (sanitize) And then spraying disinfectant on my files and buffers and letting it sit for 10 mins (disinfect)
So I feel like my options are more open now as to what buffers I can use. I may go invest in a bunch of girlfriend buffers!
It is easy to get little too freaky about disinfection in the salon..you hear so many things. Vicki's article was a breath of fresh air.
8) Hi Christie-
I use Gator Boards(I think by elegant glass)They last along time but are kind of expensive. Otherwise I use those sponge board filesby DHS(I think they are in the Industry Source book on pg.156) and they are fairly inexpensive. They work really well and they are sanitizable. I rarely use my girlfriend buffers because most of my pink & whites like a coat of Creatives moonlite & roses for shimmer.
Congrats on your freaky status! :thumbsup:
Thats what I use. They are a bit pricey but no grits on the nails, can be sanitized & plopped in my barbicide, & ultimately re-used. They can be bought in block or file form. I'm sweet on the file form of the buffer becuase I can get into the cuticle area so much better. Barb(NC) has found an inexpensive place to by "replicas" of the ones I use. When my stock is gone, I may contact her.
Since my name was mentioned,LOL, I will jump in here. I got those buffer when I lived In Ca. at the Nail Emporium In Anihiam. what a store ! Man talk about a kid in a candy shop ! :fire: I also use TT & you can santi them, they last soooo long. When you have the best, you leave the rest LOL.
