Konad polishes work consistently well for all colours

I'm sure I red that China glaze is also good for stamping? Any feedback?

Another vote here for CND Vinylux in Silver Chrome.

Some people are using shellac for stamping. You have to rub it in a few times and then pick it up. It is faint, but great for foils or rockstar

Are you a nail technician?
Why are you just asking her if she's a nail technician? Are you going to ask the person further up this thread who recommended Barry m foil effects if they're a nail technician as well?

I'm asking her if she's a nail technician because if she is then she should know better than to go buy her supplies or products from boots. We are professionals here, we only give out advice on professional products. Not over the counter high street chemists.

By the looks of her other messages, she's newly qualified in CND and wants to do some nail art.
Someone else has recommended Barry M on here which she has tried to follow up on, yet you ask her if she's a nail tech rather than the person who has recommended it? A bit rude if you ask me.

Not really. Us geeks always ask if someone is a qualified tech all the time. Makes us understand why they chose to go to boots if they have access to the authorised uk distributors.

I am a CND tech but I do use Barry M matt top coat as do many other techs, does that make us unprofessional? If I was using Barry M as my main line of polish then yes, it's unprofessional but not for art - I also found it odd when you asked on the Swarovski thread the other day - they're not a nail product...? :)

For stamping, Konad seem to be the next option, using Shellac is very weak as a colour :(

You're missing my point. I've asked it the same question twice and you still haven't answered it. I'm just going to agree to disagree and move on.
Have a great week peeps.
