Hi and thank you for reading my 4th blog - I can't believe we have already had 4 Treats bags! Hope you are all loving these as much as I am...I have been through my bag and tested all of the products to help give you my review and top tips on them.
Catch my drift Gelish x Morgan Taylor two of a kind
I absolutely love this colour, I'd describe it as a blue with a hint of purple, it applies beautifully in two coats and I can already see as I am writing this it is going to be extremely popular with my clients, once again Red10 have done it again and not only offered the Gelish but a two of a kind! My polish collection just keeps growing and with it people are starting to upgrade to toes more than they ever have.
TOP TIP - place the matching polish bottle on your desk once your client has chosen their colour, it opens up a conversation and with it an opportunity to upsell.
ATJ Filigree Nail Stickers
In my bag I received an ATJ Filigree design in gold, I absolutely these and they are so quick and simple to use!
TOP TIP - Once you have used TIO to complete your Gelish manicure lightly buff the surface, apply your Filigree and add another layer of TIO, cleanse and buff to smooth if needed.
Soak Off Kit
This is great as a retail opportunity, in the kit you receive a thin wooden file, 2oz soak off remover, 1 full size 15m Nourish and 10x Magis Wraps. These are great for clients who can't have their nails done regularly and want to remove themselves.
TOP TIP - have these on view in your salon as a great conversation starter, especially for seasonal clients.
Pack of files
I LOVE these files! In my bag I received a thin wooden file, which can be used backwards and forwards on the nail due to its fine grit, it is very gentle and another great retail item! I also received a 150/150 file which is great for refining fresh acrylic/hard gel and removing gel polish for an infill. The 180/180 is great for softening the edges after shaping with your 150/150. The 100/180 buffer is my most used, this is used for acrylic and Gelish preparation and is very gentle on the nail, it is also used to break the seal for Gelish removal. The 220/280 buffer is great for use before polish application as part of a classic manicure. The eco shiner is for bringing your hard gel/acrylics to a high shine.
TOP TIP - For a glass look high shine shape the nail with your 150/150, refine with your 180/180, soften with the 100
