Hi all

do you topcoat over gems?

I had my nails done by someone else(for a change) and they didn’t topcoat over the gems so they are now changing colour

No, topcoat smooths the facets so they loose their ability to sparkle. If they are changing colour they are probably low quality and the colour is probably wearing away with soap, hand sanitiser, etc. (particularly the hand sanitiser as it's alcohol based so will start to erode the coating off)
