Hi
I always wipe a touch of oil around my thread (not the one with the brush) & this ensures it opens every time. I did exactly the same many moons ago with a resin bottle in the salon. Client arrived, tried to open, had to ring husband to drive 10 miles to bring pliers (which I kept LOL). Stressed me out no end. Never again, I always have 2 adhesives & 2 gel brushes in my kit in case of emergencies (I was in the Brownies once LOL)

I'm confused I though 'blast' was a spray or a brush, I dont understand where does the nozzel come into this..

Boost is the gel resin in a nozzel bottle

Blast is the activator with a brush
Blast is also a spray

Let me know - as I have had loads of teething problems and might have been given the answer...

You just place a small bead of Build on the surface of the nail and spread the bead over the surface evenly using the side of the nozzle. Be careful to keep control or you can easily get the resin onto the skin.

Believe it or not, the bottles are non-clogging bottles!!! :biggrin: YOu must always keep the lid on tight. If it is loose and then topples over in a drawer or elsewhere, you will have problems. You will eventually learn to not clog your bottles. I have been using the same one for nearly a year!! It can be done.

Hi hun - meant the nozzle one you use to top up the brush one... :o god confused you will be..

Have you tried running it under warm/hot water and as your turn rock it from side to side to break the resin seal that has been created...then once off clean it up with scrub fresh...hth..

Well for love nor money can use the Build in this way - and have to top-up my Brush-on Build which works fine so no problems,

But I found the nozzel to be not thin enough to get close enough to the side walls without getting it every where, or the build running away from me... :o

Roll on the masterclasses for Fabric!

If your brush on bottle is really clogged ... do this but BE CAREFUL. You can get burned if you spill on yourself.

Take a pair of pliers and Squeeze around the cap where it screws on. Let go, squeeze and move again further round the cap until you have squeezed and broken the adhesive inside that is holding it, all the way around.

Then use the pliers carefully to unscrew the cap.

It will never be right again after this, but it may get you through the afternoon. Otherwise use your BOND brush to brush your Build bead over the nail. It won't hurt the BOnd when you put the brush back in the bottle.
