Lost My Nail Mogo

Postby Janders » Sun Apr 29, 2012 8:17 pm

After qualifying in 2004 I pumped out a few children and just let my dream lapse. This was prior to electric files being the norm and there wasnt so many El Cheapo's around.

Now my youngest will be 5 and I have a few friends with teenage daughters that are desperate for sets.

I bought the basics and have done 2 x full sets and my technique is CRAP! In fact, I told both girls to sit on thier hands when in public :lol:

Its my liquid to powder ratio, my application & my filing is too heavy handed. My smile lines are wobbly & I cant create from a form any longer.

I know its been 8 years, but really, have I lost my nail Mojo?

Anyone around Byron Bay area?

Hey there, hang in there you will get your mojo back. Since you know the basics, I would recommend jumping on You Tube for somer refresher information. I would completely recommend a technique called 'reverse application' for your smile lines.... it will make them super perfect. A company called Young Nails has some great videos on this. You can use this technique with any brand of product. Practice is always the key... and don't give up. Also make sure you are also using the right nail brush for you, it can make a difference when applying and patting out your product. These days it's much easier to use an Oval Kolinsky Nail Brush #8 or #10.

Im working on two teenage girls and their mother weekly for practise.

I love the reverse application. So much easier than the old 3 x ball application :roll:
