What are they made from? Thin plastic?
Incredibly thin - very hard to describe until you see them and how cool they are to apply. I didn't 'get it' at all until I physically saw them.

Quote:
Are they thin enough to use under polish without looking bulky?
yes absolutely but the Base and Top Seal are designed as very fast drying but they are quite a thick viscosity so they fill in the gaps' - we do advise to use the Pink Buffer to go over the smiles as that just takes the shine off - honestly - you will see just how thin they are and... S2's 'd.solve' completely removes the entire system with no buffing at all!!

Quote:
Do you need to glue them on or stick them onto a basecoat while wet?
- you apply the FWP Smiles first with the brush on adhesive over PEP'ed nails... buff slightly and then add Base Seal. If you want to add a FRENCH colour - you would do that after Base Seal - I used CND's Rose Water - then you apply Top Seal and your done!!

[quote}How do you remove them? Does everything you need come in the kit? Is there a dvd or instructions?[/quote] To remove - answered above - d.solve. Yes everything comes in the kit but not d.solve. Yes S2 have instructions which I just got through the other day!!

Quote:
Sorry for all the questions, I usually 'get' the new products such as Shellac, but these are making my head hurt! lol!
it's because they look so 'odd' - that it is hard to 'get' - once you do it though you are amazed at how easy it is!

Would I be right in assuming these would be likely to appeal to manicure clients who won't consider 'full' enhancements?

bother! and other ruder words lol.

I didn't think much of the sound of these as I am happy with my french polish application and enhancement forever french so will miss out on these at the Event having opted for other break out sessions, but know they are sounding better and faster!

Will we get another chance for a mini demo at the Event?

absolutely = there is no strength to these - you dont adhere them to get 'length' - they are applied over the free edge!

Really nothing to do with enhancements - just long lasting French polish!

You dont really soak them off - simply use S2's d.solve on a lint free pad and it just 'dissolves' the FWP and Seal coats!!
