The 30 Minute Secret

So many professionals ask me how I can possibly do a manicure in 30 minutes. I have written out the procedure that keeps me on target. The key is to have each step as perfected as possible, especially the polish. I can polish in 5 minutes, even a french. Maybe That trick will be the next blog post :)
