    I'm disappointed with the "Just for You" Gelish collection!

    I have to say as a Gelish Lover myself ...I am NOT impressed with these new releases...however i guess it's not all about us as nail techs to like them. My problem is that i have to like to promote. Maybe layering will change the bland look of these colors...they are very bland :(

    Removal of crystal pedi's

    Hi I do crystal pedi's.. The removal is easy...since your using shellac i recommend you use the remover that's specific for shellac. I use Gelish so i use Gelish remover not acetone since it's definitely gentler, i also find that the real swarovski crystals ( which i use) keep thier sparkle...

    Dashing Diva, CND Gel Bond and Shellac

    I use DD french wraps too and i did have a couple nails of my own lift and i did pick them off when i first applied DD...what i found was i didn't glue it on properly and cap the free edge enough so everytime i apply DD I make sure it's buffed snug to the nail and then i applied Gelish structure...

    How are you promoting Gelish?

    Actually Gelish is Shellac's competition...they are not made of the same components but really customers are not interested in the science as per say, but they are interested in the benefits :) Maybe you should explain to them that Gelish is similar to Shellac, provides beautiful shine and...

I buffed the flakiness away with a light buff nothing heavy, I then applied gelish gel polish and got her into the routine of maintinaing her nails with Solar Oil, so far so good. After 3 weeks of having gelish on I...

    Nail fixes

    I guess it's up to you but to be honest i would think that the time it takes to fix a whole set of rockstar nails you might as well start a fresh. Obviously if they have been on more than a week i would opt more to have them removed and done again. It's different if they had come to you after a...
