I have an OPI rolling kit. Sometimes gets heavy but lots of space and compartments

Roo bags are brilliant but the cases in my opinion are awful, I had the Tanzania I think it's called its £150, the wheels are wonky so it doesn't roll well and the top lid doesn't fit, the side opens and all my polishes fell out when putting it in the car and it ways a tone! I did get a full refund from roo beaty which is great but the quality is awful it won't last you long at all x

I've just got my first Zuca bag and LOVE it!

Here is the link to the bag I decided to go for - https://www.zuca-europe.com/flyer-london-special-edition-black-frame.html (there are only 200 bags of this design and I got number 183, so not many left).
The bag comes with 5 packing pouches of different sizes (I removed one of the largest ones, and put my CND lamp in its place), a clear toiletry bag and a matching travel cover. The wheels are quiet, so it means that the whole street doesn't hear me coming! This bag is actually very light (5.4kg) in comparison to other bags I researched, which were about double the weight, and this is before you put any products in. You can even sit on the Zuca bag, and use it as a chair! It is very expensive, but feel that the bag is worth every penny. By the way, if you sign up to newsletters at www.zuca-europe.com you get 5% your 1st purchase, and every month they have an offer on a particular bag.
Plus I decided to go for this bag and not any of the other Zuca bags, as this one is bigger. I was worried that the CND lamp wouldn't fit in.

I hope this helps.

I am considering buying this but it's a huge investment, how do you store your gel polish as there aren't inserts and I imagine they would leak if they are not upright. Could you fit two lamps do you recon? I carry 2 lamps, 70 gel polishes, hard gel pots, acrylic pots, liquids and a portable efile I am wondering if this would be big enough! If not I might keep all of my cnd products in a roo bag for clients just having a shellac service x

It is a massive investment, but it is definitely worth it.

The bag comes with 5 pouches. I'm only using 4 of them at the moment ('number 1' is the pouch I'm not currently using inside the bag).
Starting at the bottom of my bag =
In pouch 'number 4' - my (old) CND UV lamp minus the cable. I've got my cable wrapped in a thin soft bag, which goes down the side wall, inside the bag.
In pouch 'number 4' - 52 CND Shellac polishes (there is space for more).
In pouch 'number 3' - 24 Vinylux polishes (still in their boxes of 6, plus lots of space for more)
In pouch 'number 2' - all my glitters, foils, crystals, brushes, and specialist treatments (IBX, RescueRxx etc) - this pouch is virtually full.

I keep all my files and everyday tools in another smaller make up type bag, which I place on top of pouch number 2.
Then I have my liquids & bottles - ScrubFresh, Cool Blue, Nourishing Remover etc, in the side pockets.
Cotton towel and paper towels are placed in the front.

It depends on the sizes and number of your hard gels, acrylic pots, liquids and portable efile.
It depends if you want the hard gels and acrylics in different pouches. If you are happy for them to go together, then the hard gels and acrylic pots could go in 'pouch 3', where I have the Vinylux. Then remove 'pouch 2' and put your efile and 2nd UV lamp. Again it depends how big all your products are. I had to measure everything before purchasing the bag!

At the moment I've got nothing supporting my CND Shellac bottles to keep them upright. I'm searching for something to fit into the pouch, similar to the dividers you can get in underwear/ sock drawers! However, as I have so many polishes, then they seem to stay up apart from the odd one or 2. I think it helps that I have them on the UV lamp. (I've recently noticed that Sweet Squared now sell the Zuca pouch with a divider. I'm not sure on the size of pouch ie.pouch 'number 4').

I'm not sure if Zuca have sold out of this bag, as it is limited edition. If they have there is another bag that is mainly black with the odd green bits to it (instead of mine, which has pink bits), or there is a similar one that is totally black.

Hope this helps. x
