Flexi tips, Gel nails, acrylic nails, dipping nails, fibreglass, gel that feels like acrylic, full tip, half tip, sculpted…… the list goes on! For the client they just ask for “longer please”. But for the nail tech, the nail industry just seems to keep on coming up with all these different ways. You are torn between sticking to traditional methods, and trying new things.
If you were to ask a client what they look for they would ask for:
- Long lasting
- Chip and lifting free
- Comfortable to wear
- Doesn’t take too long to apply
Ask the tech and they will say:
- Easy to apply
- Cost effective
- Great results
- Good client feedback
- and anything to make their life easier.
Let me introduce you to Missu’s Gel Flexi Press Tip Enhancements. So that’s means it is a gel system, it’s a tip, you press it on and it makes the nail longer……
Cost per set? – less than ONE ENGLISH POUND
Time to apply? – 45 minutes
Long lasting? – the longest
Client feedback? – “where have these been all of my life!?”
In a nutshell this is a full press on tip, the shape is already created for you, you don’t need to sculpt, you don’t need to file any shape in, you can offer coffin and stiletto without beads of sweat coming down your face and they are easy peasy!
Step 1: Natural nail preparation
Step 2: Measure the tips and set them out
Step 3: apply base coat to the natural nail – cure for 45 seconds
Step 4: apply strengthener to the natural nail – cure for 45 seconds
Step 5: Apply strengthener to the underside of the flexi tip
Step 6: roll it on from cuticle to the free egde….
hold in place…. this bit can be slightly tricky…. annnd – CURE for 45 seconds
Step 7: Blend in the tip around the cuticle and buff over the entire nail
Step 8: Apply strengthener again – cure for 45 seconds
Step 9: Apply your desired missu gel polish x2
Step 10: Top coat – cure for 60 seconds and voila!
You now have a full set of enhancements in a choice of coffin, stiletto, long square, short square, almond, natural round….. and you haven’t broken a sweat!
Maintenance and removal I hear you say? Same as any other system except you find zero lifting with this system (if you’re doing it properly) so it’s quicker and more straight forward.
So, come on… how much? Well the base, strengthener and top coat is just £39 + vat (psst… you can buy a top coat refill for just £89) and the flexi tips are just £15 per box…. £54 for an entire new system!
You can also buy a flexi press starter kit which will include that cute mini lamp and a choice of TWO boxes of flexi tips for just £99…..
What about training? Education is key here, although we have millions of videos on youtube, instagram and facebook and a fantastic ‘how to’ blog just here – nothing compares to real hands on training with one of our lovely missu educators. For a limited time we are offering free flexi press training for everyone who buys a salon package, (please read the T&C’s regarding that)
But we also have masterclasses with our very own Helen Zeng popping up around the UK in 2020. These classes will cost you just £50! We have them in London, Glasgow and Birmingham!
