    So who's excited about the Gel II launch? There is definitely a huge buzz around about it.

    Personally I cannot wait to get my hands on more colours. I successfully introduced Gel II into my Salon alongside Shellac 2 months ago and my client's are going crazy for it.

    It applies like a dream, lots and lots of gorgeous colours to choose from too. They've got core colours, beautiful glitters and my favourites are definitely the reaction polishes.

    It feels super thin on the nail but its incredibly strong. Best bit is there's NO base coat needed and it's both LED and UV cureable!

    How long does it last on your clients? How's removal compared to shellac? Really looking forward trying it out!

    Could you use a Shellac lamp to cure? I saw somewhere that the shine needs removing from the nail prior to application. is this necessary? X
  6. StephR
    They are easily getting 2-3 weeks and so am I. Shellac always started to chip or peel on me from the acetone, scrubfresh etc.

    Removal is different to Shellac, you need to buff to break the seal then wrap. It crumbles rather than curls like Shellac does. Any remaining on the nail easily removes with a plastic backed pad soaked in acetone.

    I honestly have no idea about the UK prices yet as I bought mine directly from the US because I was far too impatient to wait until September. All will be revealed very soon though! The bottles are 14ml so same size as Gelish etc. Yes it's UV cureable, 2 minutes for both colour coats and top coat. LED is 30 seconds for colour and 50 seconds for top coat.

    Looking very interesting!!

    They are launching at Olympia am I right? What's the name of the company?
  17. nicole333
    I think their stand at Olympia is going to be buzzing! I'm certainly going to be there. No base coat, LED, reactions....they are really leading the way and I can't wait to try them. :)
  18. StephR
    Yes launching at Olympia. I'm pretty sure the stand is Gel II however it may be down as La Palm. It's stand B50.

    Excited and worried!

    I've invested so much in CND Shellac, if I introduce this people might not want shellac anymore!

    I don't have loads to clients to be able to offer a range of gel polishes. The ones I have love CND Shellac.

    Decisions Decisions!

    I'm currently offering it alongside CND Shellac. Like you I've invested a lot of money in to it. I brought it on for the colour range more than anything to start with however I've totally fallen in love with Gel II and now personally prefer it. I've got some very loyal CND Shellac clients who will not try anything else but I've got others who don't care what they have they choose purely on colour.

    Bringing Gel II in to the salon has been a huge sucess for me, client's I've not seen for a long time have come back and it's also brought in lots of new client's as well.
