My Salon Life / Lessons: Phone Frustration
I'm not going to beat about the bush.
Dear Client, you must put away your phone.
This topic has come up numerous times in our professional forums and we have got to be upfront with you on this.
We fully understand that you're bored and enjoy scrolling Facebook while we work. You're catching up on emails and answering texts. We get it. You're not at a restaurant ignoring your dinner date.
But this has nothing to do with phone etiquette. It's about how your little rectangle impacts us doing our job. I'm going to make a list that's probably going to sound harsh, but it is what it is and then you'll see what we're talking about.
- It's in the way. Our desks are covered in dust, lamps, products, arms.... We're constantly wiping them off and moving your phone is just one more obstacle.
- Your hands are occupied when we need them. Sometimes we feel like waiters waiting to take your order. Waiting. Waiting.... And all these precious seconds add up. Your hands should always be free to switch.
- Why laying it, not holding it, isn't allowed either. You're still distracted and we're back to that waiting thing again.
- Leave it ring. Dust, fuzzies, lint, all that crap is attracted back to your nails when you dig out your phone. At least wait till we give the all clear to check who called. Personally, I've had clients take their uncured fingers out of my hand to answer their phone. Seriously, who wants to redo 5 scraped nails? Ain't nobody got time for that.
- Exploring Instagram for nail art. Okay, this gets tricky because we all love a good consultation and pics are a big part of them. But, have your ideas prepared to limit scrolling burden. Ask your tech if they prefer inspiration photos texted in advance of your appointment. I know I do. It saves me time. I talk about your ideas while I'm filing and then I grab all the gear while you're washing.
There, now you know.
We love you and hope you know how much we appreciate you choosing (us) to be your tech. We never take that for granted, even if we forget to say it sometimes.
Thank you for being understanding on this (phone) matter. Your cooperation is key to a gorgeous, stress free manicure.
Your Nail Tech

Addressing the mask issue...
This was a comment I made on another post.
It is one of the things I will continue to do.
TDLR has not changed the ruling regarding masks yet.
In Austin Many Businesses have decided to keep the Masks Required To Enter. At the Edge Salon Suites, Masks are Still Required. Inside My Private Suite, Masks are Still required.
Masks will be required during your services.
I feel this is one extra thing I can do to help ensure Safe Salon Services for all of my clients. Many are at high risk.
I appreciate all of my clients caring enough to help protect the others.
I Know some of you do not believe Masks are needed.
But it is a very small thing, we can do to help
protect those at higher risk.
Again, I thank you all.

Brief Update . Mar 2021.
There are a few things of which to give everyone updates.
HEMA vs IBOA - not all gel polishes contain these ingredients. These monomers perform similar functions in the products in which they are used. Both are Category 2 Skin Sensitizers. There are other monomers that are also Category 2 S kin Sensitizers like HPMA and others, but there are a lot more factors that go into causing allergies.
As the nail professional, you should always take care to keep all gel and acrylic uncured products from containing the skin when possible. It is best to always cure each layer of gel (base coat, building coat, color coat or top coat) prior to applying the next product in the system.
What should you do if you are concerned about the system you are currently using?
- If you are not experiencing any allergic issues with your clients, then continue using your current system as you are using it.
- Ensure that each layer is cured properly prior to applying the next product in your system.
- If you have a client or you are experiencing an allergic response, stop using the products on your client and seek medical attention. Consider using another product if you have more than one allergy experience.
- When in doubt, cure the gels longer in your curing light. Curing a gel longer can only help reduce allergies to products that do not cure properly.
- Allergic reactions have a few different causes but skin contact with the gel or acrylic, under cured gels and raw material selection are leading causes of allergies to gels.
We are still working on determining the causes of the allergies and onycholysis in the UK. It does appear to have a complex cause but we are still working on it.
