    Brisa gel or Brisa Lite?

    I'm by no means the expert, but after sitting through class with my girls today, the answer would be yes. Brisa Gel is a hard gel, impervious to acetone, great for therapists and those constantly exposed to acetone.... must be removed by file. Brisa Lite is a soak of gel, use the CND...
