Foreward by Gigi Rouse
"A chance comment by one of the members of www.thenailgeek.com (the largest online community for nail professionals in the world) led me to start a series of tutorials to hel nail technicians with problems related to techniques used when creating nail enhancements.
By and large, skilfull, efficient techniques for working are not learned on nail courses. There's simply too much information overload on a student at the beginning stages for him or her to take in subtle nuances that expert technique requires. It can take many years to develop the necessary proficiency to make your work stand out from the rest.
This handbook of techniques will help you on your way to becoming the nail artist you aspire to be and will, i hope, reduce the time it would take you to muddle through developing methods on your own.
Many of the techniques in this book are the same as those i've taught to many competitors who have come to me for help so that they could become winners. Happily, many of them have gone on to do just that and I'm proud to have played a little part in their sucess"
