Hi everyone,
I hope we all are keeping safe in our bubbles.

Pink tips will be re opening once all lockdown levels have been lifted.

In preparation for reopening I will be posting some competitions and give aways. As we will be reopening in our new city of Gisborne.

I am also going through stock and having a clean out of the salon. So some goodies will be available.

Watch this space.

[03/30/20]   For any of my regulars that are unable to get a fresh set of nails please remove your nails safely.

!!!! Do not peal them off.!!!!

All you need to do is:
-File off the top clear layer of your gel to make the top of the gel surface rough.
-Use some isatone on cotton wool straight on top the nail and wrap with tin foil.
-Let soak for 10mins.
-At this point the gel should just fall off with the top of a spoon. Do not force it.
- If it's still stuck add more isatone and soak for another 5 mins.
(sometimes if the product has been on the nail longer then recommended it over cures and becomes harder to remove)
-Once all removed wipe off the extra gel.
- if you not applying anything else I recommend to moisturise your hands and finish with cuticle oil.

Hope this has helped and see you again soon

Pink Tips will be closed from tomorrow until further notice .
