I found that too, they need longer than stated, trial and error for all until you have it perfected. I practiced on a nail pop.I find with the silver you need to hold the magnet as close as possible without actually touching and hold it longer than the other colours, for about 15-20 seconds. hth x
There is a little edge bit on the magnet (if you get what I mean, it sticks out from the rest of the magnet) that bit rests on the base of the clients nail so you can hover over the nail easier because you are leaning the magnet on the finger. Hope that makes sense!!I know it's a silly question but where are you holding the magnet? I only ask as I originally held it at the end (doh) but you hover it above the whole nail (horizontally). X
China Glaze has a U-Shaped Flat magnet. It has 3 patterns, a Star, Sideway stripe & a Deep V (similar to the pattern from Gelish only closer lines, its better) I think it's much easier to use than the Gelish Magneto cap. I bought mine at local beauty supply for under $5, assuming China Glaze would have available online? With wide or very deep curved nail beds the pattern doesn't do as well. In that case, you can do 1/2 of the nail, then move magnet to the other side, doing the other 1/2 nail it works Great! If you mess up with the gel polish pattern, you can re-do it easily, lightly brush polish over top & use magnet again. (make sure you're not applying more polish - brushing the current polish) I apply gel polish to whole hand & then do pattern. (These 2 tricks don't work as well with the regular Lacquers nail polish, they start drying too fast) I love the Red, Brown & Blue, would like to get the Purple. I agree with the statement made the silver / gray doesn't work as well, go figure? Good Luck! Lynnethanks that has helped
I love watching the client's face...it's like magic to them!
