Latest client feedback on Vinylux
In the last couple of days I have received more feedback on the Vinylux manicures and pedicures that I have done for clients.
Firstly I received the following review via my online booking facility:
Samantha S. says: I have been having Shellac manicures and pedicures for a long time now so I was very eager to try the Vinylux product although possibly quite sceptical ! Normal nail polish never stays on my nails for more than 3 days but having had a Vinylux manicure and pedicure I am totally converted ! It was amazing ! I still have it on both hands and feet 9 days after it was applied ! I would highly recommend this product
Next I received photos and comments from a client, Karen, showing me how her nails had coped with a week working in a primary school. I usually apply Shellac to her nails but on the last occasion she had picked it off....VERY bad for your nails but most people have done it at least once, we are all human and not perfect after all! Her nails had become weak and were not in their usual healthy state.
I suggested that she give her nails a breather and have a full manicure with cuticle oil, hand scrub, lotion etc and that instead of using Shellac (which requires soaking with acetone to remove) to try Vinylux.
If she gave her nails a week or two to regain strength and re-hydrate then if she desired, at that stage she could go back to having Shellac.
After nourishing her nails with cuticle oil and hand lotion, I buffed them to remove any slight bumps/ridges on the nail plate. Vinylux is a thin polish and it applies much better to smooth nails. After buffing the nails, I used some Scrubfresh (a CND product that removes traces of oil from the nail) to ensure the nails were clean and dry to aid application of the Vinylux.
Karen's nails after one week with Strawberry Smoothie. Still no chips. Slight wearing on the middle finger. The nails are still short but should regain strength with regular use of oil/hand lotion.
Karen's toenails after a week with
Hot Pop Pink. Still as good as new.
Karen's Comments on the above:
''Especially pleased with my finger nails. They have been through a lot this week!''
Re toenails....''A week later & no need to reapply. Very impressed''.
