We couldn’t believe it on Day 3 of the Education Summit 2016 when everyone appeared bright eyed and bushy tailed at 8:30am having only gone to bed 7 hours before! Yet the educators were eager to start learning all about Skyscraper® Liquid and Powder and the amazing qualities of this rising star from Gel II®.


skyscraper_starter-kit-300x175Skyscraper® Liquid and Powder benefits from advanced polymer network technology which enables the nail professional to create gorgeous, thin enhancements with exceptional durability for excellent wearability. The Skyscraper® molecular structure provides soft, flexible strength without brittleness, perfect for clients with soft, bendy nails.

The amazing reviews from every technician that has trialled Skyscraper® and then gone on to invest in both the training and entire system has been phenomenal and it’s always great to see techs rave about the brand! Our EE’s loved their introduction to the system and we left them hungry for more to learn throughout the year!


294404_origWith new things being the theme for the day it was time to introduce IBX™ to the team!

IBX™ is a new and revolutionary two-part system that acts as a protective shield for the natural nail under any gel polish coating and can also be used as a natural nail strengthening system to grow natural nails more readily on their own! IBX™ is the first system of its kind, this penetrative toughening system works inside the nail (instead of on top), is cured with LED light and forms and interpenetrating polymer network that fuses the upper layers of the nail together. The result is a tougher natural nail that can grow on its own or act to protect the nail against frequent and potentially damaging removal. Hundreds of techs have already completed their IBX™ training at TCBG headquarters in Bournemouth so it was time we rolled it out nationwide. To be able to teach the IBX™ half day course the Educators had to sit the official training programme run by IBX™ trainer Laura Prat who showcased this brilliant system. The girls all passed with flying colours and are so excited to now be offering this class in an area near you!

Team Building Time

Finished by 4:30pm the ladies retired to their rooms to pamper themselves ready (or nap) before TCBG team dinner out! Just a stones throw away from the hotel was the lovely Chimichanga Mexican restaurant! The ladies got stuck in with the nacho sharing platters, spicy mixes and sizzling plates, constantly chatting all things TCBG, all the fantastic brands and what they had to offer! One of the great things about the educators and the and the summit is how everyone so quickly becomes friends despite being from opposite ends of the country! The evening even included a debate about putting potatoes in pies, being introduced to whatever a pie barm is (I still don’t know) and of course how quickly the summit had gone now that the last day was only hours away!
