Problems with new Gelish collection

#1
does anyone else think new gelish collection is very thick. I am finding it really hard to work with and have to do three coats on most of them and still not 100% happy with coverage then.

I absolutely love all the colours though. just very frustrated. is it just me??

No it's not just you. Two of mine faded, the rest were thick and stringy and they all needed three coats.... So I sent them back and got a full refund. :(

Not just you but I deal with it by making sure to apply very thin and I get a beautiful, full coverage in 3 coats. You just have to work around them or at least I do because I LOVE the colors ;)

I'm hoping to train in Gelish soon & i must admit, i have seen a few threads reguarding the consistancy & that some of the colours fade.. I'm in 2 minds now whether to choose someone else to train with

It's only a handful of colours so I wouldn't worry too much xx

I posted this same thing a week ago. Ive emailed harmony about the blue and green. The consistency is awful. Clients are complaining. Ive had to refund 50% of services done in these colours. I work full time (not in nails) in a demanding job so havent had chance to call but ill have to tomorrow as 3 days since i emailed. All the other colours from gelish i have inc oh what a knight are fine and i never have any application or longevity issues....

Im hoping theyll refund me those 2 colours if i send them back

Even though Gelish have a great colour range, they are one of the gel polish lines that are the most inconsistent in viscosity. They go from very thick like the house of Gelish collection to very thin like the All about Glow collection that requires almost 5 coats to get good coverage. I dont know if they use several manufacturers to produce their bottles causing such huge differences or what, it is very frustrating and is the one of the things that lets them down.

My all about glow collection are perfect with 3 coats, Have you tried stirring it with an orange stick? Might help a bit. Xx
