hi, i switched to akzentz a while back i really like the options range, i have just recieved my options brite white and tried it on myself, i thought it was quite runny and didnt cover too well even with 2 coats i had to then back fill with clear before my final clear coat of gel because of having to do a thick layer of white for coverage ! (if that makes sense !) does anyone know if i'd be better using one of the other akzentz whites?

I don't use options just Akzentz...i use both POW bright and POW natural....never needed 2 layers. i find the more you play about with it the more patchy it can go...also leave to settle for a few mins while you work on the other finger and what patches you may have will have evened out.

You may need to mix the Brite White, sometimes the pigment settles to the bottom of the pot. The brite white is a little thicker than the POW, but since it is Options & more flexible & soak off, I use it on toes & natural nails as a thin layer like polish. The POW I always use on fill ins, I get excellent coverage with one coat.

It is technique sensitive though, but check out my tutorials, on the nails I use POW and on the toes I use Brite White. Tutorials
