    Vinylux top coat getting thick

    I have gone through several bottles of vinylux top coat, never reaching more than half way through before it becomes very very thick and stringy. Any suggestions?!

    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 :)

    Which gel brand?

    I use Young Nails as well, and love their acrylic and Synergy builder gel. It is wonderful, self leveling, but I've never had to remove them.

    Different e-file bits and purposes?

    I am certified, but that was 9 years ago and they were not very informative, I agree, I do need to get re-certified, but until then, I just wanted a little input.

    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...

    Konad-all you need to know and your favourite pics!

    Is it best to stamp over the sticky layer of Shellac? Or is it better to top coat, clean, stamp, then top coat again?

    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...

    Removing Vinylux?

    I use pure acetone with the textured cotton and it comes off as easy as any other polish. Non acetone won't touch the stuff though. Once I switched to pure acetone I don't have any complaint about removal. I only use it for pedicures. My only complaint (from my clients even) is that the top coat...

    CND Shellac vs Gelish

    Layering is your best friend :) There's nothing wrong with offering both services though. Invest in the beast and top coat for Gelish and slowly incorporate it into your services. I started with the colors that Shellac doesn't offer. After time, some clients have decided they prefer Gelish, so I...

    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?!

    Removing Vinylux?

    You've got to use a strong remover, acetone or nourishing remover. Mon acetone won't so the trick!!

    Best Forms

    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...
