Can anyone help me?

If someone comes to you with UV acrylic enhancements on, can you use normal L&P to infill, or is it necessary to take them off and start again???

I began with UV Acrylic - I have to admit I don't know the answer to this one 100% - but I shouldn't think you could get a decent match to the original Acrylic that is on the nails, also there is a difference in how they cure...

I wouldn't mix it myself. I might try on one nail out of curiosity though, just because I'm bored right now!

If you're rebalancing there shouldn't be a problem because the existing product is already cured, problems occur when mixing uncured product.

as i understand, it is a liquid and powder like normal acrylic but it only cures under a uv lamp.

no, still like l/p acrylic in its aplication, but instead of being cured by the heat of the body it has a photoinitiator and only sets in a uv lamp.
so basically its like a traditional acrylic but without the rush to get it shaped before it sets spontaneously.
