I found some coloured tips in my trolley the other day & have decided that i am gonna offer coloured tips as an other service. But i have been thinking about when it comes to the backfills. So i need some coloured acrylic to go with my creative liquid, in my opinion it is the best for me when it comes to doing a great set of nails, but i don`t think CND do coloured acrylic do they. If they do, can someone tell me were i can get them from. If they don`t, is there another product just as good as CND.

Yes, creative does make colored acrylics. I just bought some yesterday. lol. I haven't tried them yet, but I got mine from Ace Beauty Supply. I am in the states so I don't know where you would find them.

My suggestion would be to go to the CND website and see where the nearest distributor of their products is. They are called Mosaic and they come with 6 different colors and a small bottle of the Retention+ liquid. (Atleast that's what I got) So good luck, hope that helps.:)

I have the collection of colored glitter acrylic. I really like it. Have used to on a few of my clients and it wears very well. I have used the Mosiac collection and it is good also. The colors are brilliant and bright. I think you will be happy with them.

You must not mix your liquids & powders hun. Always use the same brand powder & liquids. It's not a good idea to mix & match, you'll end up with loads of problems.

CND have a fab colour collection with Metro & Mosaic collections.

you might like to take a look at NSI - they do a Technail Kit that comes with 15 colours, liquid, 2 mixing jars and 30 forms for £**.** + vat xx

The coolest thing about the CND coloured powder collection is that with just the 6 colours you can mix hundreds of different colours and shades and adding the glitters only gives you more choices. You save literally hundreds of pounds rather than buying tonnes of different colours that are pre-mixed, only to find they sit on your shelves unused. Plus it's fun to mix your own 'custom' colours for people and make them feel like it is a special colour just for them exclusively ... which it is!

I`ve had a look & they look great. Can these be applied with creative retention+ liquid ? That would be really helpful if they could be.

Why should you not use clear? I thought it would be better with the clear. More transparent. They look great.

If you buy the custom blending kit, you'll get a little booklet with some recipes in it, other then that just play around. Just store them in a small container. I bought mine at a place that supplies packaging to shops, 200 (20ml?) plastic containers for $12. I'll never use them all:lol:

I'm on the Mid North Coast. About 1 1/2 hours soth of Coffs Harbour.

The great thing with the custom blending kit is you get the whole range without spending a fortune then you can just buy the bigger sizes as you need to.
It's too expensive to buy them all full size, especially when you don't get to use them that much.

Excellent, Thanks for that... Yeah people are so boring... no one wants to have colour anymore. I love to have it but it just does not last when you are doing everyone elses nails... At least if it is acrylic it will last a little longer.
How many days do you work?... I do 3 days.... I have 3 kids at home too
