    St Tropez - no samples so try the Boots version in your machine??!!

    Hi all I've finally got round to doing a colour wheel for my Shellac and Gelish colours. I've only ever done them with normal nail enamel before. Do I have to do the whole basecoat-cure-colour-cure-colour-cure-topcoat-cure or is there an easier way? I've found that Gelish doesn't "dry" in...
