Do you know I never saw any instructions like that on mine....I wondered why the tips were disintigrating (and that using an acetone-free polish) when I tried removing the polish to replace with a new one! I suppose it would be a bit fiddly to apply an acrylic for the base because you would probably want to refine the surface to get the polish on nice and smoothly....but I'm not an expert with the ol L&P. Don't see why you coudn't use resins from a fibreglass kit though?beautifulnails03 said:I bought a Colour Pops display today but on the instructions it says that for a longer life you should coat them with gel. I don't have gel though so will clear acrylic work just as well? :?
