I have received my hand trainer but there are no nail beds on the hand trainer? is this how its meant to be? Do i attach a tip to the hand trainer and use that as the nail plate and then add a tip to work on? Not used a hand trainer like this one before so i'm just improvising at the moment. 
Any ideas anybody?
Thanks

Hi Laura.  Did you sort this out? I've just received my trainer and in the same boat.  I've emailed my tutor twice about it over the last two weeks but she hasn't got back to me.  What did you do in the end?

Hi cheryl..nobody got back to me so I used a nail tip and shaped it like a nail plate and attached it to the fingers on the hand trainer using blue tak! I then worked on that by applying a nail tip and then the acrylic etc...I didnt get a reply so I just carried on training that way and thankfully I have passed the diploma. Hope this helps x

Yeah, that's exactly what I did today. Uses double the nails mind. You'd think paying this kind of money you'd get a better trainer. Thank you for your reply Laura.

Yes you will get through a lot of the nails and it was frustrating as they kept falling off the hand trainer when I was filing etc..I did write a note in my final exam when I sent it all off explaining how time consuming and difficult it has been using that particular hand trainer. I was in two minds as to buy another hand trainer where you clip the nail beds on but as you say, paying all this money for the course you shouldn't have to!

Hi guys, did you get a resolution to this or do you literally need to use bluetac?
