Radical is a patented liquid monomer and was introduced in 1995; it is a reinforced, cross-linking liquid for tough enhancements. It has a full bodied consistency which gives easy workability and a softer feel so easier to file!!

Retention+ was introduced in 1999 (I think:o ) and is a keratin bonding liquid for lift-prone clients!! Because it bonds to keratin, it has excellent adhesion which means Primer is NOT necessary; it too has reinforced crosslinking formula to create strong enhancements and it also has a hard set for fater filing, it buffs to a superb shine and is scratch resistent!!

Retention+ is more advanced in its formula than Radical although there are many that stll use Radical on ALL clients. You do not need to use Primer with Radical either although you can. You can use it with Ret+ but why bother because it brings R+ down to the same strength as Radical!! Whatch your PREPat all times. If this client is a lifter then I would have initially suggested R+ but if you are having problems, try Radical and see if you get a better result!!

my daughter has always had bad lifting no matter what i used, she has very sweaty hands it literally drips off the end of her fingers, nothing she can do until the children are older then they will operate by deflating the lung and cutting the nerves under her arms.
BUT now i use, nail fresh, scrubfresh and primer with retention+ and perfect powders, now she has hardly any lifting at all.

Hi there
I have always used ret plus and I have never had any problems, I never use primer, you dont need to when using ret plus. Make sure you prep the nail correctly first , this usually helps eradicate lifting :cool:

Ahh this Mui is the original non-yellowing Solar Nail Liquid - this was actually the first non-yellowing monomer invented by Dr Stuart Nordstrom - Founder of CND!! Yes CND do still make this because as you say, there are many who still use it. It was originally used with CND Primad (primer) and Solar Nail Powders. I know CND make for the USA market but I don't think we have this anymore over here - I am sure there are some on this board that still remember it though - Geeg used to love this liquid but then Radical was introduced and most people prefer the advanced technology!! Hope this answers your question!!
BTW when I was talking to the Thai distributor, she was saying that Thai girls don't want glossy enamels but that they like the matte look - what do you think???
