Doug Schoon rocks.
I don't have nailclass though. I'm going to have to get myself a copy.

It's Mother of Pearl enamel by Creative (you can get Creative products from Sweet Squared in the UK), you can use it with any system :green:

three books at the moment.

1. Manicure, pedicure and advanced nail techniques by Elaine Almond
2. Nail artistry by Jacqui Jefford
3. Nail structure and product chemistry by Doug Schoon (2005 edition)

Not quite finished with nail artistry yet but strongly recommend them.

I have to say that I would never recommend the first book you mention. It is very very old and WAY out of date information-wise. It was the first book of its kind in the UK many years ago and has been superceded by the others you mention.

Well you all seem to rate Nailclass by Gigi Rouse, looks like that will be the first nail tech book for me. Just found it on Amazon for £15.00 plus £1.99 sourcing fee. £16.99 total no P&P.

Thanks:D

as a newbie i have found the two most useful books have been 'an encyclopedia of nail' and 'nail class'. Always willing to try out others though!!!:)

I have just ordered mine from Mundo Products as I already use their fab products!! Anyway, I can't wait till its delivered! My other - could'nt possibly do without book is "The Encyclopedia Of Nails" Anne Swain and Jacquie Jefford.
