Worried my nail extension will fall off...
I got my nails done ~3 days ago with acrylic powder and extensions. I absolutely LOVE them but my left thumb nail has a gap between the tip of the actual nail and where the extension was glued on (it feels like it's peeling off from the tip.) It feels pretty secure on the rest of the nail, but none of the other nail extensions have this gap....I'm worried the entire extension and polish will peel off. Is this an actual issue or am I just overly paranoid? Is there something I can do to fix it if it is an issue? Leaving the state in a few hours to attend a memorial service and I was hoping to have my nails looking. 💯

2023.05.31 17:50 Ok_Vast_4362 Super beginner, looking for something that feels like acrylic but is easier to work with!

Hello! I am a super beginner to doing my own nails, I am looking to purchase a UVB lamp and some other items to be able to do my nails as it’s too expensive for me to pay for in my area. I like the “tight” feel that acrylics give my nails, and I like that it makes them super hard so they don’t break but there’s no way I can manipulate it in a way to make it look normal at this stage. Is there any type of product that can give me the same look/ feel without having to be drilled so much? I know hard gel is a thing but is it as hard as acrylic, thanks in advance, all your amazing nails have convinced me it’s my turn to be fabulous on a budget!!!

2023.05.31 16:42 sleepysurf Roofer charged for, but didn't use ring shank nails

Roofer (Tampa area) just finishing our 52 square shingle re-roof. At my request, contract spec'd ring shank nails (not separate line item cost), due to high wind area, but they used standard galvanized nails. How much discount should I expect for this error? Re-roof is 90% completed, so can't re-do.

2023.05.31 15:43 penny_in_the_air Does anyone make wide full cover tips?

My husband has decided he wants me to make him a set of nails. However his thumbnail is too wide for any of my tips and he refuses to put his hands inside my nail lamp so I can't build him a nail (says he ain't going out like Bob Marley). He also doesn't want to wear acrylics because he wants something short term and thinks my drill is "scary".
I found some press ons for toes that might work (that thumb is as wide as my big toe), but I think they might look off when paired with the other nails. I tried looking online, but no luck. Any advice would be appreciated.

2023.05.31 15:35 johnlawrenceaspden Sulphites Anyone?

TLDR:
Sulphites, natural fermentation product chemicals which are perfectly harmless to most people and used as a preservative in many foods and drinks, cause tiredness and headaches and nausea in the intolerant.
Medical "science" doesn't believe in sulphite intolerance, but I do (n=1). And I will fight them if they like.
Many years ago I fixed what appeared to be CFS by taking thyroid drugs, despite the fact that I don't have any sort of thyroid problem.
This worked beautifully, and I forgot I was ill for years, apart from having to take enough thyroid to kill a horse every day.
Recently it stopped working. Or at least the tiredness came back mid-pandemic. Just after my second vaccine. But I think we would know if the vaccines caused long-term fatigue. I figured I'd probably got long covid without noticing that I'd had covid.
And this time I couldn't fix it with thyroid. Raising the dose made me hot and anxious, as well as tired. Lowering the dose brought back all the CFS symptoms and threw me into depression.
I've also been having increasingly terrible hangovers for years.
As a result I've completely stopped drinking alcohol, but still occasionally have an alcohol-free beer. I can get hangovers from them! But fair enough, there's a bit of alcohol in most of them.
Recently I've been feeling tired and getting headaches much more often than normal. And I've also been gaining weight, which has never been much of a problem for me before.
As a result I started getting interested in the causes of tiredness again and obesity for the first time.
And I hit upon the idea that polyunsaturated fats were things man was not meant to eat.
There's a great theoretical argument for this, but the evidence is very against it. The argument is so compelling to me that I thought I'd experiment anyway.
Cutting out all the polyunsaturated evil made me feel much better. Not perfect, but much better.
The other day I was in a pub and had a coffee. Later I wanted another and they'd turned off the coffee machine and so I had a lime and soda.
The next morning I had a hangover, with headache.
My sister is a publican, and I told her that my alcohol intolerance was now so bad that I could get a hangover from lime and soda.
And she said, pulling a bottle of lime cordial off a shelf: "What you've got is a sulphite allergy."
I do not have a sulphite allergy. I know what allergies feel like.
But I figured my sister had probably hit the nail, if not squarely on the head.
I ate half a jar of maraschino cherries as a test, and it gave me (headache and nausea) that went on for two days.
So I worked out what sorts of things had sulphites in them and stopped having them (not too hard because most things with preservatives went out the window as part of giving up PUFAs).
The last culprit detected was my breakfast muesli. So innocent-looking. Whole box overboard.
I feel great! Tiredness much reduced, almost gone. Headaches gone.
Medical "science" does not believe in sulphite intolerance. I do.
Apparently there's an enzyme, sulphite oxidase, which turns sulphites (a poison, kills bacteria, hence a preservative) into sulphates (harmless).
I think it is probably possible to get bad at making this enzyme as you get older. (My health was perfect until I was around 40. I used to be a heroic drinker.)
I wonder if half the reported well-being effect of giving up PUFAs is from not eating the poisons in processed food.

2023.05.31 14:27 Bogenieanrhapsody Has anyone else had a huge drop in skin/cuticle quality using fix and flash extensions? How did you avoid it?

I've been using the gel press on nails that you cure on with builder gel for a few weeks now and as extensions I love them. But just lately, as I've made a conscious effort to moisturise and use cuticle oil throughout the day my skin's been getting drier, harder and it's peeling easier. In general it kind of looks like I need a break but I'm not sure if it's the gels, or if I'm using bad quality cuticle oil or what. It's making my dermatilliamania really flare up (restricting my ability to skin pick is one of the reasons I wear extensions). Any tips on why this may have happened (I never had this problem when I had acrylics) or how I can maximise recovery over a break period? Thanks

Hi!
I'm looking for a place where I can do my nails (just regular nails, no need for acrylic/gel) and lymphatic drainage/therapy massage in Vantaa or Helsinki Area. Does anyone have any recommendations of good places? The place doesn't need to have both services, so you can recommend more than one place if you know.
Thank you in advance!

2023.05.31 12:32 AdmirableUsual2763 Nail Care Market Demand, Recent Trends, Size and Share Estimation by 2030

The global nail care products market size was valued at USD 22.34 billion in 2022. The market is projected to grow from USD 23.41 billion in 2023 to USD 32.84 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.95% during the forecast period. Rising efforts by leading manufacturers to expand their digital presence, build brand equity, and improve consumer engagement will propel market growth in the forecast timeframe. Furthermore, nail care brands are focussing on promotional activities to build product demand and brand loyalty thus facilitating market augmentation. This information is provided by Fortune Business Insights, in its report titled, “Nail Care Products Market, 2023-2030.”
COVID-19 Impacts:
Implementation of Stringent Lockdowns and Social Distancing Norms Hindered Market Growth Amid the Pandemic
The rising incidences of COVID-19 in several economies resulted in the implementation of nationwide lockdowns to control the outbreak. This, in turn, affected manufacturing facilities negatively. They were completely or partially closed due to the unavailability of labour and raw materials. Furthermore, import and export activities were also disturbed which hampered market proliferation amid the pandemic. The demand for nail care products fell significantly as people were at home mostly and physical stores were closed.
Fortune Business Insights™ lists out all the nail care market companies that are presently striving to reduce the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the market:
Report Coverage:
The report provides an exhaustive overview of the global market inclusive of the latest trends, market drivers, restraining factors, and recent developments. The market is studied at both micro and macro levels by dividing it into segments and regions. Market share held growth rate, and valuation estimates of each region and segment are also given in the document. Furthermore, the impact of COVID-19 is also studied to enable industry stakeholders to make informed decisions.
Drivers and Restraints:
Rising Expenditure on Beauty and Wellness Products to Aid Market Augmentation
Growing expenditure on beauty and wellness products, increasing popularity of wellness tourism, and changing perceptions regarding personal care are the factors aiding nail care products market growth. Surging product demand from millennials and the growth of the hospitality sector will further boost market proliferation. Moreover, the emergence of salons and spas offering manicures, pedicures, nail art, gel polish, acrylics, and other nail care services will also facilitate market augmentation.
On the other hand, concerns regarding the harmful effects of chemicals such as dibutyl phthalate, formaldehyde, and toluene used in manufacturing nail care products will hamper market growth in the forecast timeframe.
Regional Insights:
Asia Pacific to Dominate Backed by Rising Number of Working Women
Asia Pacific held the majority of the nail care products market share in 2022 owing to surging demand for beauty products due to rising consciousness regarding appearance especially among working women. Rising income levels of the populace and the increased influence of Western culture are some other factors aiding market expansion in this region.
The Europe market is anticipated to grow significantly in the forthcoming years due to increasing efforts by companies to improve customer reach and strengthen their social and digital presence. Moreover, surging demand for organic nail care products owing to rising concerns regarding the harmful effects of traditional cosmetics are contributing to regional market growth.
Competitive Landscape:
Product Launches by Leading Companies to Aid Market Augmentation
Leading players often participate in strategic undertakings such as collaborations, mergers and acquisitions, partnerships, and product launches to enlarge revenue share. For instance, in September 2021, Creative Nail Design, Inc. launched a holiday collection that includes shades such as silk slip dresses, glitter sneakers, signature lipstick, white button-downs, statement earrings, and high-waisted jeans. The availability of a wide variety of shades will help boost product demand and revenue generation for the company.
Key Industry Development:
August 2022: Chanel launched a new range of nude nail polishes. The range includes 12 new nail polish colors split into two undertones rosy and golden. Each nail polish is priced at USD 31.03.

2023.05.31 12:28 uItratech HERE’S HOW TO FIX A BROKEN NAIL SO IT LASTS LONGER THAN 2.5 SECONDS

My nails are thin af and take forever and a half to grow, so I would rather repair a break 9182782829238282 times than cut my nails short lol. I’ve repaired a LOT of breaks over the years and tried everything in search of a lasting fix—powders, gels, acrylic, wraps, bandages, glues, e v e r y t h I n g.
For a while my favorite patch was the teabag method because it was the only one that lasted more than a day or two. I tried various brands of nail glue in an effort to find one that could make it last even longer, but they were all the same. Eventually I found a resin called Stikr that made a huge difference in lasting power and nothing else came close. I stuck with that combo for a couple of years until last week where I impulse-bought silk wraps from the brand that makes Stikr because WHY NOT.
For the past month, both of my thumbs have had jagged tears on them and my teabag patch wasn’t able to last more than 3-4 days because of how desiccated the nail plate is at the tears. At the 3-day mark it inevitably began lifting near the edges and the break itself would also just tear open again, right through the patch.
But now, with the resin and silk patch, I am 6 days in and they haven’t budged at all.
TL;DR: I break my nails a lot but at least you can profit from my misery 👌🏻
STIKR AND SILK PATCH, STEP-BY-STEP:
TOOLS:
STEPS:
  1. Remove all polish using acetone or a polish remover. If you have any glue residue (e.g. from a previous repair) on your nail, soak in pure acetone for a couple of minutes and wipe off the glue with a lint-free wipe until it’s completely clean
  2. OPTIONAL: use a nail dehydrator on the area to be patched to improve adhesion
  3. OPTIONAL: If your nail has completely broken off, follow these steps before continuing. Make sure the broken-off piece is also clean and free of any residue. Use as little resin as possible to cover the break and reattach the broken-off piece. Try to position it as best you can to avoid gaps (usually the pieces will fit together like a puzzle). Spray activator and push the piece firmly into place for 30 seconds so it sets with no gaps (moving or lessening the pressure while it’s drying will weaken the bond so hold firm and steady). Wipe with alcohol.
  4. Being careful to avoid touching the silk wrap with your fingers (I use tweezers to hold it), cut a square at least as large as your break but preferably with an extra 1mm border on all sides to cover well past the break
  5. Using tweezers, remove the silk wrap from its backing and place it on the break
  6. Use a clean tool (I usually use a clean orange wood stick or the flat end of my tweezers) to press down on the wrap firmly so it’s flush with the nail
  7. Apply a small drop of Stikr, just enough to saturate the entire silk wrap
  8. Spray activator, wait 30 seconds and resist the temptation to manipulate it while it dries. If you manipulate it, it will develop a cloudy finish and cloudy finish = microfractures
  9. Repeat steps 7-8 twice for a total of 3 layers of resin
  10. Done!

2023.05.31 10:08 MoonDA54 Nail Salon Question

I’m having a hard time with asking for the correct nail service. I recently moved to Germany from U.S. In the U.S. I would get acrylic nail tips and every 2-3 weeks go in for a “fill” where they fill in the growth of the nail with acrylic. In Germany, at salons where they do nail extensions, what is the service called when you need the “fill”?

2023.05.31 08:34 23569072358345672 Wife and I at wits end chasing smell in lounge room!!

If this isn’t the right place please point me in the right direction. About 3 weeks ago my wife and I started noticing a bleach chlorine smell in the lounge room. Initially I thought maybe the kids had attempted to clean something up. But the smell has persisted. It gets sickeningly sweet during the day and tends to disappear at night.
We have checked everything we can. We had an aircon guy out to check the aircon, I thought maybe it had a leak but he said it was fine. I have stuck my nose in every square inch of this room and can not nail down a location. It’s just in the air. We keep a clean house and I hate bad smells and this is doing my head in.
I’m at the point of getting in a professional to find it but I don’t even know who to ring. Anyone have any advice?
[Solved] and I feel like a moron.

2023.05.31 07:37 OriginalCTrain Some advice on a patio table top.

I know. Not the most exotic furniture question.
We have/had a really nice square patio coffee table. It had a sheet of tempered glass aprox 2.5ft x2.5 ft… the glass top shattered… my wife’s first instinct is to get a new one as the glass replacement will cost as much as something else. I would rather not. Is there a plexiglass like solution I could put in there? I was looking at plexiglass (acrylic) but I feet it’s just going to sag and weather really quick. It’s up on the deck in a lot of sunshine. It matches all of the other furniture so I’m really keen to have it replaced with something rather then throw it out! Thoughts?

2023.05.31 07:23 eek-idrk My manager gave alcohol to underage employees

I work for a chain of gyms/country clubs that throws big pool parties during the summer. There is one specific manger that is ridiculously unprofessional. She wears bikinis/really small and revealing clothes to work (the last person who had her job got written up for wearing khakis instead of black pants), drinks on the clock regularly, does her acrylic nails in the office making the entire place smell like chemicals, and countless other examples.
For Memorial Day the club threw a pool party with drinks and food. All of the managers were very drunk and the one mentioned above was going crazy. She was taking alcohol to the girls working at the front desk, who are both 17. After the party they both drive home. Thank for nothing happened to them but I think that’s just ridiculous. To give alcohol to not only your underage employees, but while they’re on the clock? I mentioned it to another manager who proceeded to say “yeah she is pretty crazy” and when I said that that’s not just crazy, it’s insanely illegal, he just walked out and didn’t mention it for the rest of the day.
I want to bring it up to corporate but I worry they’ll have a similar reaction. What should I do?
