  1. Where do you work? I would like to make an appointment with you.

    1. Nails and nail art are my hobby. My profession is database administration and marketing.

  2. Hi,
    I am opening a nail supply store in California. I've just returned from CosmoProf Las Vegas, but would now like a gel user's opinion before purchasing products for my store. Would you mind messaging me at vault9nailboutique@yahoo.com ???
    I'm looking for your three top choices of gels, polishes and stripers. Bio Seaweed was one I really liked, but it costs more, which means selling at higher prices. Do you feel they are worth it? And I tried drying it in the sun...It works!!! Even worked in overcast...within 2 mins. It was awesome.
    thanks for any help
