Hi Tamm - I like the pics. The nails are great. I hope to do a Brisa course soon. How does Brisa compare with other gels?

I'm afraid that I'm completely new to gels so I can't compare it with anything.... what I will say though is that so far so good. Its so much easier for me to use than L&P and once I've got over a few teething probs... i.e... a bit of lifting - not as much as I used to get with L&P, and the general application, I think I will be very happy with it. I find it far more a relaxing experience than L&P as there is no panic. You have plenty of time to get those smiles right and I must say that the smiles are easier or so I find once you've got your technique. I know I used white tips on myself but I have done a set on my mother in law and the smiles were better.

Glad you like the nails:) thanks.

For those who can't see the pikkies Lesley has very kindly made them smaller so I can get them in the geek gallery. They are aren't as big as the ones on her site but hopefully you will get the idea of what they are like

Thanks ever so Lesley your a star!

I didnt think you could use Brisa with the white coloured tips as they wont cure properly under the lamp?

Ive done the course and Im sure this was mentioned.

Would love to know for sure as the white tip option would be sooooo much easier!!

Can anyone clarify?

I tried it with clear tips and forgot to buff the shine of them and the gel separated itself from the tip- so maybe that would happen with a white tip too, but the adhesion to my nail plate was fab- i was just in a hurry... mega impressed by the brisa thou... ive just painted my l and p nails tropinkal and sealed it with the uv finishing gloss.. Marvellous stuff...

On my course we were advised that white tips can be used but they must be blended if you do not blend the tips then the gel will come away.

I regularly do Brisa on myself with white tips blended with no problems and go about 10-14 days before I need a rebalance. The reason why I need a rebalance so early is because I am a full time Nail Technician working approximately 70 hours a week so obviously the wear and tear on my nails is quite mad, plus I have them very long :)

Thanks for all your positive comments peeps:)


As far as white tips are concerned...... I was told that so long as you use clear/pink and not the white gel and to double cure to be on the safe side then you can do it. I'm not sure I would actually do this as general practice. I only used them on myself to get them done if you know what I mean. I would rather play safe and use the gels to create my whites.

I have had some chipping away at the free edge but its mainly on my right hand and I've put that down to not capping properly. I also did blend the tips in a tad so maybe thats helped as Jue has suggested.
