The best place to get it would be from your current supplier - you would need to use the same monomer to polymner (powder).

Hope that makes sense.

Does MP not do coloured acrylic - it may look more expensive but if you are looking to use another brand then you will need another brush as well - does the MP still look more expensive?

You really should use the product that you trained with especially if you are new to nails. If you find a cheaper supplier I would advise you take a conversion course with them first but remember cheaper isnt always better, you may end up with a "cheap" finish if you havent trained with them

NSI do a great coloured acrylic set, comes with a bottle of attraction liquid and has approx 16 colours in it. I absolutely love it.... but i'm an NSI trained technician and know how to use it.

You have been given great advice, and i'm a great believer that technicians should only use systems they are trained in.

NSI do sample sets of their basic L&P, try one of them, if you can work it, do a conversion and move on to coloured etc.:)

Hope this helps
