What's the best acrylic? - 05-09-12, 08:32 PM

Hi everyone, Just getting back into Acrylic nail extensions and having trouble finding a really good acrylic powder and liquid thats not too pricey but high performance. Any suggestions welcome. At present I'm using NSI attraction powder and a cheap liquid off ebay.

I use NSI they are really good.
You shouldnt be using to different brands together as you will not get the best results.
Get some NSI liquid and buy only from a whole saler and not from ebay!
blossom and Maz101 heart this.

Ezflow for me having tried lots of others. I found Ezflow after being in business for about 3 years and have never even looked to change since then.

I like NSI and have to agree, you shouldn't mix powders and liquids as you won't get the best performance as they are not made to work together, plus if a cheap liquid from eBay you have no idea what's in it, which isn't good for you or your clients.

I use CND and I love it. After starting with a cheaper brand I changed to CND and could feel the difference instantly, fantastic high quality product

You will be having problems mixing different brands of products! Don't buy stuff like that off eBay, you can't be exactly sure it is what it says on the tin!! I only ever buy things like glitter, foil & beads off eBay. If your using NSI powder already why not spend a few more quid than your eBay special & use the matching monomer so you can offer a complete system which is more professional & you will start getting better results! Hope my input helps slightly x
