I was thinking about this earlier today and though I would ask my fellow geeks.
I have always used Scrubfresh to remove the dispersion layer from Brisa ~ am I wasting money?
Obviously the fab properies of Scrubfresh are wasted on removal of the dispersion layer so should I be using polish remover or even the dreaded acetone?

Thanks KxXx

Hi hun

I always use a gel cleanser - I didn't realise you could use scrubfresh.

I use scrubfresh, but a cheaper alternative is LCN's Cleaner solution. But they have (or at least had) a minimum order of £25 and then adding postage it probably won't save you much!

To be honest, I'd rather use scrubfresh. Its one less bottle to carry around with my ever increasing nail supplies :biggrin:!!!!

And it is the inhibition layer not the dispersion layer which is in fact an incorrect term for the sticky unreacted layer left on the top.

i only use scubfresh to wipe the inhibition layer off, i have tried others and they don't quite 'clean' all off, so you tend to use more. i know scrubfresh is expensive but you can't beat the quality of this product.

I use the nail cleanz recommended by my one of my dist.
Another suggests pure acetone and/or 99% alcohol. Have used that also in a pinch with zero problems.

It all depeneds on the gel brand for one thing. For another, it depends on what you expect the product to do. If only to remove the 'stickiness', or more.

I've been thinking on trying scrubfresh to see what all the hype is about for myself. I know it's VERY popular as you can see from previous posts.
Need to check locally to see who has it.

I use Scrubfresh to remove the inhibition layer (Brisa gel), as Clairet said, it saves carrying round even more bottles in the kitbox.

I would be careful using Scrubfresh on a soak-off gel though as it contains acetone, albeit a small amount.

this is interesting as I always have used LCN Cleaner, will get some Scrubfresh and try it out :green: thanks for the tips girls, as always they are fab.
BTW I use LCN gels which are not soak off so presuming this will be ok???
