4 Years!

How did 4 years go by so fast??? So much has happened...

I still use Entity Beauty Nail products and I will retire if they go away. That is a promise!

I have finally found tutorials on how to create nail art using the soak off gel polishes that I have and use! I am practicing so you will have to wait for pictures...  And the nail art I have learned so far is something that some of my clients would actually wear.

The video tutorials are so amazing I cannot tell you. Check them out at Neiru, you won't regret it!

Next time (and not 4 years!) of my nail art!

Soak Off Gel Polish

I just have to say that I am in love with Entity's Color Couture soak off gel enamel.

In talking with various nail clients I see a confusion with the term 'gel'. Unfortunately there are basically 2 types of 'gel' nails out there.

Gel Nails - this is what I call a hard gel (it hardens to form a nail). It is used to extend and enhance the nail, much like acrylics do. This cannot be easily soaked off like the gel polishes.  It does come in various colors. I never saw the use for red or orange or whatever colored hard gel because to change the color I would have had to sand all of the gel nail off. Yikes!

These are the nails before gel enhancements

Gel enhancements using forms to extend the nail.

Gel enhancements using tips to extend the nail.

They are pretty, but as with acrylics they require retouches and some women out there do not want to do the acrylic/gel nails. Now we have soak off gel polishes for the manicurist to offer clients. Stay tuned for my post on this newest product for nails!

A Year with Entity Beauty Nail Products

I cannot believe that it has been a year since I posted anything! Time sure does fly by quickly.

I'll start by saying I still love Entity Beauty Nail products.

I have been using Entity's Acrylic system for a year and have absolutely no complaints. I can now say that this is the best product out there in terms of durability, ease of use, color, etc.  When I do a set of acrylics I know that those nails will look good and last.

Either way they are beautiful!

Nail Educator


I took an acrylic nail class with Entity Beauty a few weeks ago.

I mentioned to the educator, Laura, that I would like to become an educator for Entity Beauty. It was for completely selfish reasons...I want to make sure this company sticks around!!!! I love their product.

I got a call today from the person in charge of educators! It is sort of last minute but they do this once a year and one is coming up. I am going to do it! I truly want to help this company expand and stick around.

The class is in Las Vegas! So I will have to post pictures. hehehe

Nail Hell - Part 2

Well my search for an acrylic nail product went on for about 8 months. Just some of the products I tried out...
I tried whole systems...
I tried mixing different powders with different liquids...
Nothing was working. The nails would lift, crack or both. I had clients who never broke nails coming in with many nails broken or lifting or both...

Needless to say I was just about at the end of my rope and thinking of different career choices.

My wonderful daughter and I went to a Hair and Nail Expo in Long Beach as a final search for a company I hadn't tried.

And... I found one!  Entity Beauty!

This product is amazing! I am still working out the kinks with how this product needs to be applied. Mainly it doesn't like the cold so I have to make sure I apply it thicker than I usually do. But so far every client is loving this product!


Coming soon...Kirstie Alley's new show!
