to all the experience Gelish ladies! Could anyone do me a list of what Gelish coloura require 2 coats and what requires 3 coats? I'm pretty new and don't want to be doing certain costs too thick/thin, this would help me so much!

Different batches of Gelish vary slightly in their consistency, so always best to go by the look on application, but for reference I find blacks and bright blues, purples tend to need an extra coat and whites, pastel colours tend to be a much thicker consistency. Hth [emoji1]

Ella of a girl
Black shadow (sometimes 4)
Tan my hide
Princess tiara

I personally prefer just to do
3 thin coats anyway to get good coverage and to give my clients extra strength.

If there are any that are really watery they may just need a gentle stir to mix up the pigments. x

Great thanks, I just find that doing 3 coats takes me longer than shellac goes
