Hi all,

I dont know if this has been mentioned before on here but here goes

I love the quality of my creative enamels but have noticed that the brush is quite short so when the bottle is only half empty i struggle getting the remainder polish out the bottle and its a lot to waste.

Any one got any ideas as i refuse to add polish thinner as this will onmly compromise my varnish quality

Cheers Ladies

you can buy those holders that hold the bottle at an angle, that might help.

Cant say i have noticed this but maybe i am not near the end of a bottle yet...:lol:

i have solved a similar problem.
i have cuticle oil with a dropper, but the dropper is not as long as the bottle.
i got some small glass beads and put them in the bottle and this raised the level of the liquid.

i'm sure this will work for you. make sure the beads are glass and have no coatings on or linings. if in doubt, go for completely clear glass beads.

Hi , mmm I didn't know thinner can compromise the quality :confused:
I use a bit of thinner with my air shield sometimes as it can get very thick quite quickly ,
I have never noticed a compromise in the quality though ,
although I only ever use a little drop just once in the same bottle .

Do creative recommend thinner in their products ?
:hug: x

I just put a bunch of 'empty bottles' together for FW as we do a lot of mixing, and I was thinking the brush looked longer than I had remembered :eek:...

Is it just with one bottle? It's just not something anyone has ever mentioned although I know the brush doesn't reach the bottom of the bottle... I don't think any brushes do though.

well it seems there is a problem as some of you have tried ways to rectify this.

i am a little put out to tell you the truth as its not one of the cheapest enamels out there to buy and feel if creative did extend the brush arm they would be making our lifes abit easier.

bottle holders dont work angie as with the creative bottle being a bit square there is a lot of enamel you still cant reach.

Has this problem been brought to your attention before sam and samantha ??????

Thanks for your replys girls

I have this problem too, I have to constantly almost tip the bottle upside down when using my popular colours then the remainder seems to go a little gloopy. I get over this by adding some of the same colour out of a new bottle to the old bottle and mix up and this seems to rectify it. But like Lisa I have found it a pain when getting 2 thirds down the bottle.

I have used CND enamels for EVER and can't say I have ever REALLY bothered too much about the length of the brush ... nor have I ever seen an enamel with a brush that goes all the way to the bottom of the bottle in ANY make of polish.

I always hold the bottle tilted in my hand when applying (as most professionals do, I would have thought) and have never had a problem ever!

As a salon owner, we always had more than one bottle of a colour, for resale, and if we got to the end of a bottle of enamel before selling the retail bottle, we used it to top up and then ordered another. Is this honestly a BIG issue? I have never found it to be so.

If you make a charge for applying polish (which I always do) then that bottle has paid for itself IN TWO APPLICATIONS!! It owes me nothing even if I decided to throw it away half empty (which I do not).
