Top tips on what to look for when choosing a nail course by Laura Prats, Louella Belle Educator
Choose a course that you feel will help you earn money in your salon or as a mobile. This will give you confidence in an area you are weaker in.

The basic rules for L&P application:
Ratio is very important and varies from brand to brand, always follow manufacturers instructions to the tee!

Keeping a clean and well cared for brush!! Keep it free from set product, if this happens soak in monomer and wipe until it dissolves, always store your brush bristles down or flat NEVER bristles up!
Daily/weekly care routine for hands by Elise Scholes-Pilkington, Louella Belle Educator
Oil is an absolute must! Every day! Dadi’Oil or Artistic’s Revive nourishes the cuticles and the surrounding skin but it also helps keep the nail plate more flexible. A scrub is also a must, regular exfoliation removes dead skin and promoted cell renewal. A good hand cream is a must, keep it by the sink, on your desk or in your handbag.
