    Gelish help!

    Are you working near a window? The sunlight coming in starts to cure the product on your brush or it's being held to close to the lamp and that does it - I've made this mistake myself! Contact your harmony educator and they will send you replacement brush xx

    Nails techs and their children?

    I work from home and have a 4yr old son who is usually impeccably behaved but at the end of the day he is not a robot and can have the odd attention need - shock horror!

    New Gelish colours. Love in bloom

    Oh my goodness did my first set with love in bloom yesterday and was Si nervous after reading all these comments!

    Gelish nails not lasting, please help

    On the next set try as best as you can not too hit either sidewalls or eponychium as once these are cured you can't rectify easily and if that's happened that could be where the lifting is happening as the nails grow with a ridge where the skin was touched. The foundation needs to be...

    Dry brushing Gelish foundation?

    Hi I use little hexagonal sponges that you can order from nail harmony much quicker than dry brushing and really effective! Never tried a lint free wipe as would be worried fluff might transfer to nail x
