    Gelish brushes spreading out in bottle

    I have found a few of my Gelish brushes going all wonky. Never had the problem before. Wanted to buy more colours but put off doing so. Don't keep my gel exposed at all. Use it the same way I always have. One colour I replaced the brush with an old top coat brush yesterday. Worked fine but...

    Ingrown hair product, what works?

    Just received a couple of samples of Aloeclear. I may also have a look into Perron Rigot's aftercare as I already use their wax and their customer service always great.

    Skinbase.. so pleased with it!

    I had a Skinbase treatment a week ago. To be honest, I found it a bit too abrasive. I am a bit of a whimp but my skin is delicate and I just found it a bit too much. I was really disappointed cause I really wanted to take Skinbase on. The therapist hasn't been doing it for that long. Do you...
