I've been wondering about this for a while so when I saw this thread it sort of answers my question but does this mean that you can infact use UV topcoat over natural nails meaning that you still cure it for the 3 mins sorry to be soo dumb but I've never tried it so I assume that the nail varnish will last ages but then do you have to buff it off as you do on nail extensions?
No, you do not need to buff off the UV top coat. It can be removed be acetone. I have been using Creatives UV dry Pro Finish top coat for a few weeks now. Its used as a top coat, then put under a UV light for a few minutes. It truley comes out HARD, SHINEY and DRY!! I have been experiencing some problems with it peeling off. But there can be a lot of factors behind that.
1) Im not using a very strong UV light. The Creative lamp used with the Creative Pro Finish has, I believe, (4) 5 watt bulbs. The lamp Im using has only (1) 9 watt. So the strength is not the same.
2) Im not using a Creative polish color. Ive been using Creatives Scrubfresh, Sticky, OPI, and UV top coat. A rep at Creative said it shouldnt be a problem them, as long as your prep work is all the same system
3) I still wonder if it has something to do with the moisture in my gloves at work. My polish remained PERFECT over the last 2 days Ive had off work. As soon as I put on gloves today to do a pedicure a corner chipped off, then proceeded to peel away after a bit longer.
So I may need to do a bit more trial and error for a while to see what works for me.
But I have been using Creatives HEAT DRY top coat. So far, very pleased! Its used as a top coat, then meant to be dried under a normal 60 watt bulb (under any desk lamp usually) for 3 minutes. And it stays hard and shiney for days. Or until you put on gloves like me! Grrr....
Hi, this is my first post on here, NSI do a product called Thermoshield which can be cured under a UV lamp or 60 watt bulb, it dries hard and shiny and can be removed with nail polish remover, also it doesn't make nail polish crack like Glaze and Go does.
