What a week that was!

Posted by NailsXpress on December 29, 2013 at 7:45 PM Comments comments (0)

The week leading up to Christmas was my best, as I expected.  Almost fully booked throughout.

People still wanted to book with me, even though I was away in Spain.  I actually had to explain to one lady, that I would have to charge her the price of flying home and back to Spain and then the cost of her nails, if she really was going to demand my return!  She eventually understood.

Gelish -v- Shelac

Posted by NailsXpress on December 5, 2013 at 5:20 PM Comments comments (0)

People ask many times, what is the difference between Gelish and Shelac.

Gelish has arrived.  Gelish comes in a array of colours, applies just like polish and cures (sets) in a uv lamp.  Gelish stays on for up to 3 weeks with no chipping or peeling like traditional polish and removal (soak-off) takes only 15 minutes.  There is a foundation layer which is a new technology for gel adhesion.  It  bonds with the keratin in your natural nail so helps to strengthen your nails.  Gelish is also flexible so for those people who have thin or fl...

MMA is an abbreviation for a chemical also known as MethaMethacrylate. This substance in its liquid form when mixed with acrylic powder goes through a chemical process called polymerization resulting in an extremely rigid nail enhancement. This rigidity can cause major trauma to...

Do you have a nail condition?  Onycholiosis is not as uncommon as you may think (it where the nail seperates from the nail bed).  There is treatment available for it.  Some people have put up with it for years, thinking there is nothing they can do.  There is no need.  See your doctor and get treatment.  Have beautiful nails again.

In the meantime, keep your hands dry, wear gloves when washing up etc.  Apply hand cream and cuticle oils with vitamins ...
