Hand and nails care
« on: April 27, 2018, 09:34:50 PM »
So recently got the balloons out again and after some practice and numerous repeats of YouTube videos, I was asked to demonstrate some designs to the firm’s events team. This I did, and using a new bag of Qualatex 260s, I did quite well. However, I did find that a few more balloons than expected suffered pops, holes and deflations. I believe my hands may have contributed. I tend to have longer nails, but did trim my index fingernail, and will trim the others. But also my cuticles are rough and wanted to ask if any of you do more with your hand care than normal? Extra moisturising? Regular nail trimming? What works for you? Thanks in advance.

Hi Dave, I think this was covered in the topic of the month section when Danny organised them.
Not had a chance to look as we have a busy balloon build day today.

This is the link and there are four pages to view of topics so nearly 100 I think.
