I worked for a university for many years on grants for supporting and improving immigrant businesses. One of the largest immigrant businesses in my area are nail salons which are dominated by Vietnamese immigrants. My area of expertise was the nail industry because I was a tech back in the day. I have no association with any brand (my university affiliation would make that inappropriate), and I have had to develop knowledge across brands in order to be helpful to these businesses.Nancy, do you have any association with any of these other brands?
Its easy to say that other brands are quality, but I have very good reasons to believe the opposite. I've done the actual leg work of looking into these brands. You have to dig deeper if you want a better understanding.
But if I had to recommend another brand, it would be OPI and Light Elegance. Both of these brands have good research and development and are promising brands.
I don't want people to think im just bashing other brands and have no respect for it, but it is what it is. These other brands pose a risk for the industry based on my research. Many of them aren't properly made.
One of these days, I might put together a proper comparison thread, to prove all of this, but it would take a ton of work. I would actually have to fly all the way to california and gather up all evidence from scientific machines and stuff like that. Very costly and time consuming. So for now, readers will just have to take my word and use common sense.
Please be clear. I am not writing this to convince you. In your various incarnations in this forum you have shown a determined resistance to facts. In fact, you have provided no factual dispute to what I have posted here. We have repeatedly asked you to provide evidence of your research and investigations and you have declined to do so. You offer no proof of any of your overblown statements. You have not provided your "good reasons." That provides little reason to "take [your] word." I respond to your posts because new techs and techs that aspire to improve should not be misled by you. It troubles me deeply that you so consistently post erroneous information. It damages us as individuals and as a profession.
