    Buying CND Shellac?

    Just a comment on AliExpress, Wish etc. Anyone buying a cosmetic product and importing it into the UK also assumes the legal responsibility for it if it harms the health of clients. Insurance will be invalid as it is not a legal product in the EU and registered with CPNP.

    Which gel polish?

    Maybe consider PRIMA? It has a unique pigmentation chemistry so it covers in only one thin colour coat. No shrinkage or colour fading. The shine on the top coat is also exception. And it is hypoallergenic. PRIMA is made in Sweden and compliant with all EU cosmetics laws. Professionals only.

    Salon Direct selling Bluesky

    Do they still sell acrylic sets in Superdrug? I worked with a BBC reporter 2 or 3 years ago, and at that time we managed to get Boots and I thought Superdrug to remove their acrylic kits. Perhaps Superdrug replaced their kits with a polymer that doesn't contain BP, but the polymer I loaded into...

    Salon Direct selling Bluesky

    That the same Salon Direct where they appear to sell acrylic polymer to non-professionals? That's illegal - according to the EU Cosmetics Directive 1223/2009 because polymer contains Benzoyl Peroxide. So if the company doesn't understand the cosmetic regs, maybe they are also not checking the...

    Best non soak gel varnish?

    So I have taken a screenshot of Tuan's message and sent it to Dr Valenty. Dr Valenty is HIGHLY respected in the nail industry and holds several patents and I felt that it was only fair that she had the choice to respond if she so wishes. There are positives and negatives for all products, and...

    Gel recommendations?

    This is complete hokum. You are making yourself look foolish and propagating false information. That is neither helpful or professional.

    Gel recommendations?

    That's correct, because different product types such as cosmetics, washing powder, perfumes, etc. products would have different testing criteria. So a uniform definition is not possible to write. Take nail products for example. An allergy can occur at nail school or 20+ years later. How could...

    Gel recommendations?

    I'm married to a NT who has degrees in Chemistry and Biology. Myself, I have an engineering degree. At one time all of our educators in Ukraine and Russia had degrees of one form or another - NT in those countries often earn more than as engineers, scientists or teachers. Profession meaning you...

    Green Destiny nail company?

    From 11 March 2009, the EU banned the testing, within the EU, of cosmetic ingredients – irrespective of whether there were non-animal alternatives. It had already banned the testing in the EU of cosmetic products. The bans are known as ‘the testing bans’. From 11 March 2013, the EU completed...

    Is there a way to reduce fumes?

    We are no longer a reseller for Weller Filtronic, since most of our business today is in countries where Weller (as one of the World's largest industrial tool manufacturers) already has offices. However, in the interests of fair play, I wanted to give them an opportunity to respond: ==== Hi...

    Gel nails lifting and popping off clean

    The 36W of the UV lamp is only the amount of electricity used. When a supplier tells you that any 36W UV lamp is OK, that is a gold plated indication that they don't understand what they are selling. Find an educated supplier.
