    Glitterbells colour acrylic

    I have had 1 client loose 6 nails within 3 days , she usually comes back for infills 2-3 weeks after I’ve done a set on her. Other clients again within the first few days. I also spend a while prepping the nail as I no this is important. I fidnt use a clear base though, could this be the reason? Xx

    Coloured powder and monomer?

    I am a little bit reluctant as I’ve not tried it and have always been aware that you use same brand monomer and powder. I might give it a try as I’ve heard it is fab to work with x

    Coloured powder and monomer?

    Hi may seem like a silly question but can you use coloured acrylic with any monomer eg. different brands? I have noticed nails by annabell do 1 branded monomer to be used with different powders. I am aware you should never mix brands however as im new im a little confused with this.
