CND Email - Vinylux Polish?

I have a question, I use gelish and love the strength it offers, I would use the structure gel underneath vinylux but would I finish the gelish application completely including top coat then buff slightly and add vinylux or do as it says for brisa lite on the industry source.

Thanks x

Q. Can you apply VINYLUX over Brisa Gels?

A. Yes, create the Brisa Gel enhancement, then refine and shape the enhancement following all enhancement finishing steps. Apply Brisa Gloss and cure. Remove the top film with 99% IPA and gently remove the shine with a Boomerang Buffer. Apply 2 layers of VINYLUX Weekly Polish followed by VINYLUX Weekly Top Coat.

Q. Can you apply VINYLUX over Brisa Lite Removable Gels?

A. Yes, create the Brisa Lite Removable Gel enhancement, then refine and shape the enhancement following all enhancement finishing steps. Thoroughly dust the enhancement. Skip the Brisa Lite Removable Top Coat and apply 2 layers of VINYLUX Weekly Polish followed by VINYLUX Weekly Top Coat.
I'm glad you have mentioned Gelish because I'm totally sold by Vinylux now but I don't want it to make my Gelish redundant to my clients. I still love Gelish!

Only thing to do is try it!! I don't think you would get a smooth feel like you would with CND Shellac :/ also you have maybe have to try it a few times to judge how long to leave the polish to dry before applying the glitter and I don't think you would be able to scrub it in like you would CND Shellac!

I'm at S2 tomorrow so I will give it a try and see what I come up with :)
Q. Can you mix Additives into VINYLUX or other “nail art” ingredients?
A. Yes.

I was told by an EA that you have to mix it IN to the polish prior to application but they are still playing around with it. I'm sure soon enough they will have some cool tips and tricks for us.

Anyone have an answer to my question?x
I don't think I will be able to work fast enough to get a good result with glitter. I did little Miss 10's nails yesterday and put a little pink pearl heart in the wet topcoat on each thumb (she's a terrible nail bitter so I told her every time she goes to bite them look at the pretty hearts to stop herself), by the time I got to the second thumb to put the heart on it was too dry to stick properly and I had to remove it and start again - it really starts to set THAT fast.
Oh the hearts are still stuck fast more than 24hrs after applying them - bear in mind there was no glue used and how rough and thoughtless kids are with their hands.

That is going to be entirely up to you and what you say to your clients.

So many silly nail technicians made their enhancement services redundant to their existing clients by doing nothing but hyping up UV colour to these clients instead of hyping it up to their new clients or only to those for whom it was appropriate.

Offer VINYLUX to the appropriate people and you won't shoot yourself in the foot again. VINYLUX is for those who want extended wear polish colour at home. It's for ALL of your natural nail manicure clients ... It's fast drying colour for enhancement clients, for those who want matching colour to Shellac for their toes, for those who like to change their polish colour frequently etc. ........ Be smart.

As I'm currently only doing my own nails and a few friends (to keep my hand in), I can't really afford to buy into anything new, I struggle saving to replenish stock. I do gel enhancements mostly but also do shellac.

However, I HAVE HAVE HAVE to have this :D
I've some money saved, and fortunately its my birthday on the 5th May so guess what I'm having for my birthday lolol. Might only be a few colours, depending on their price.

I'm so excited by the possibilities with this, I'm giddy :o

woop woop can't wait, excited much!!

Now this product has grabbed my attention. I used to love the colour spike. Which colour would be the closest?

I have to say that I have seen the prices here in the US and pricing is relatively the same. Yay! :)

I'm wearing Vinylux in Asphalt. I've had it on for 2 days now and it's not budging. I do have some wear on my right thumb and index finger due to not having plastic backed pads for removing polish. I had a small chip on my right index finger that only I could see, but now it's not there since using remover. My nails still look great! Vinylux will be my go to polish for myself since I get bored of color after 3-4 days.

Sorry if these questions have already been answered but there are so many posts on here I cant initially see the answers.

Can this be retailed to clients or salon only use?

How is this removed ?

It will be a great retail polish Oey and a great recommended retail price at £9.95

Especially as a lot of the Shellac colours are going to also be available in Vinylux.
Removes with acetone based polish remover.
Great for clients who only want polish over a weekend or short holiday and can't wear polish at work,,so they can remove it themselves.

I'm at The Event, where Jan Arnold said this morning for Vinylux services we shouldn't be afraid to charge an extra 10-20% on top of our normal prices..
