    Checking out the competition in Shellac

    Thanks so much for bringing this to my attention Gigi... obviously we recommend the wraps to clients, but due to a small hickup with stock we had to advise soaking with double dippers for about 3 minutes until we got the wraps in stock... this was a temporary measure and we did explain that the...

    Skin Geek with Shellac questions

    Yes Marion you are right some basecoat was recalled in June and everyone got replacements.Thank fully they resolved that issue quickly. You dont actually have to buff Brisa off if you are using it as a base for Shellac.

    Skin Geek with Shellac questions

    Acetone in a double dipper -3-5 mins will take Shellac off fine if you dont have Shellac wraps-do not buff- you will thin the natural nail and you dont want that. If Shellac has been on the nails 3+ weeks it will take a couple of mins more to get the basecoat off too.

    What do I use to wipe the DL from Shellac?

    As others have said isopropyl alcohol is the correct wipe to give the best shine- if you have none- cool blue gives a good shine- if you have none vodka/gin/bacardi will do.

    Can you use shellac without base coat?

    You can use clear gel as a base,but of course it wont remove the same,but fine for emergencies. I did not know that you can use Brisa Uv gloss as a base.Can you? Or did the poster mean with Brisa Gel nails? I did not know either that you can use a Shellac color as a base.Can you? I would...

    Shellac - What colours would you like?

    I used to hate Cocoa- Samantha told me it would be huge- as if! Ha Ha - losers! Miserable colour. Now to my shame and embarrassment,it is one of my mostest favourites and our customers. I would love to see this shade in the new colours- and Hotski!

    Strange Polish (technique) request

    Yes i do- at one time and back in fashion again, the look was to leave the lunula,half moon area clear of polish.Half moons are not so visible anymore except perhaps on thumbs! The fashion then evolved to the reverse- leave the free edge clear of polish! To do this use a veneer on the free...
