what are the main problems in using it and is it still as popular as ever?
Hi Kat - welcome to the board! to answer the above - what are the main problems... I would say that specifically, no matter what system you use - if you use it correctly along manufactures guide lines and safely - there should be no problems. :boom:
However, due to 'dodgy education', companies selling direct etc :cus: , teks still do L+P thick (more likely to cause natural nail damage if broken), many companies do not teach to keep the brush on the nail plate only (when touching soft tissue, can lead to over-exposure leading to allergic reaction) - can look bl**dy awful if tek has not had a decent trainer to explain and guide them through design of the enhancement, product placement and finishing etc. I will bring up one more time :shock: the step-by-step in Nails+ March issue as a PERFECT example of this!
Odour of the monomer is I would think the main negative - many people love the smell but some don't and some don't know how to keep it to a minimum (very easy when you have metal bins and keep tops on bottles or dappen dishes when not in use)!! :thumbsup:
Anyway knowing me I will be digressing :hit: - yes I think L+P is still as popular if not more so - Gels are buzzing too at the moment I think mainly because of the coloured gels etc, quiet a few new Gel companies operating etc but I think we can asuume that L+P is definitely number 1 in the system catagories!
