    OPI Infinite Shine

    I was really excited about this product when I saw it but thought before I go ahead and buy it, I would come and see what everyone thinks. I am not reading good stuff which is a real shame, I was quite excited. I live in a hot country so the last thing I need is a polish that bubbles and goes on...

    Collistar new gel polish?

    Hi. I have just had a client who uses the new Collistar gel polish and wondered if anyone had used it? The polish I took off was still really shiny and she had had it on for two weeks. I was thinking of buying some but not sure who sells it? Any advice would be great. Thanks in advance
