    First set with Gelish Polygel

    Thanks for that, I never had an issue with the Top it Off, but the price of this seems massive compared to equivalent acrylic product. 70 euros per tube plus the cost of the slip. You obviously think its worth it.

    Nail Harmony Polygel - anyone tried it?

    Just wondering if anyone has tried the new Polygel from Nail Harmony, whether they like it or not and how its applied, I watched a YouTube video, it seems to go on more like Acrylic than gel, but the brush looks more like a gel brush than an acrylic. It looks great, but is it just gimmicky...

    Removal of gel extensions and full set?

    I agree with the comments above, and once you get the hang of using a form you will love it. I much prefer sculpting on forms to doing tips.

    Feeling a little disheartened

    Its difficult when your other half sees you spending money, he can't see the profit.

I am coming back after looking...

    Bag/trolley advice

    Think I am going for this bag, its got to be lighter than carrying a wheelie, where I live there are more up and down steps than trekking miles. I am using an old flight trolley at the moment and its ok, but I would like something a little more elegant.

    Feedback on Gelish hard gel or recommendations for a (preferably soak off) hard gel?

    I am interested in this too, do you use the French White thats like a polish, or do you use the white builder gel? Or both. The white builder gel is not in the kit, also its the dark pink in the starter kit. Which ones do you use most?
