    Does anyone use Vita Gel?

    I have some vita gel from when it was first replaced and never got much use from it because it would always peel. Has anyone had any luck with this product? Should it be used at a base coat under color coats? Or should I just toss the bottle?!

    Striping tape tips?

    I have many clients that request striping tape because they like that metallic stripe look, although every time I try over Gelish or shellac it never sits flat on the edges, it always wants to lift up. Would removing the sticky layer be beneficial? Anyone have any tips? Thanks :)

    Is OPI GelColor better for difficult nails?

    I started off my career using Shellac and love it, it's still my favorite, but introduced Gelish into my services shortly after for more color options, and have of course noticed different nails hold up better with one or the other. I have the Brisa lite, and the Gelish structure gel to help...

    Has anyone tried Gel Two?

    I'm in the states, so I'm not sure if Gel II is everywhere, but I've seen it in Nails Magazine, Nailpro, and one of my local supply shops. A colleague of mine had a bottle, so I tried it last night. It does not require a base coat, sop the service is quicker, but I'm am scared for removal time...

    Vinylux looking dull

    I've been using Vinylux for a lot of my pedicures since it was released. I've had a few complaints that the top coat isn't staying very shiny. With my OPI polishes I use Famous Names. Has anyone else noticed it not being very shiny?!

    The majority of my services are Shellac or Gelish, I only have maybe 5 regular clients between either gel or l&p enhancements so I don't get a ton of practice anymore 😕 I only use forms for repairs at this event. Currently I have a roll of Young Nails forms, but I feel like, unless its...

    Does anyone use Vitagel?

    Can I dry brush Shellac?

    As the polish bottles keep changing, I've realized the polish has also. I made a post about this the other day and find several people agree.

    New Shellac colours, thinner in consistency?

    Has anyone noticed that the newer bottle if shellac are thinner? At first I thought it was just the new colors, starting with the spring line, but the summer line as well, and I even replaced my rubble and that seems thinner. Application wise, this is wonderful, but I feel as if they aren't as...

    Does a heating pad help speed up removal?

    I have a couple clients that have been elsewhere before they found me, and told me the tech had either out their hand in the lamp or under a heating pad to speed up the removal process of Gelish and shellac. First of all, the CND lamp has a fan in it, so to me this seems like it would dry out...

    Acetone or specific remover?

    I currently use pure acetone to remoce shellac and gelish on my clients. Once nourish came out by Cnd I tried it, and feel like it took longer than pure acetone. Has anyone else experienced this? Is dsolve better? Is it really worth the extra money compared to acetone? Also, I have never tried...
