As you know, we don't encourage the use of Ebay to buy professional products, enamel included.

You don't know that you're receiving the 'real deal' and it's much better to support your 'legal distributors'.
I've bought 1 or 2 enamels from Ebay in the past BUT they're for personal use and not for using on my clients.




OPI is a fab brand, as is Creative, Zoya and Mavala to name but a few.

Maybe it would be a good idea for you to get a bottle of each from 3 or 4 different brands and roadtest them to see which ones you prefer for application and longevity.

The only reason you'll get 'shot to pieces' is because buying from ebay isnt great! You dont know that what you are buying is the real macoy do you!?!
Much better to buy from a reputable supplier.
Sandi has given great links and is right in saying that you should scrimp.

I use the Creative Sticky as it is a fab base coat. I too favour OPI but we use Attitude at college (only the red) but I have to say that it goes on really nicely. Great consistency with lovely even coverage. The local Bondlink sells it for just over £x.xx per bottle (bargain).

I agree with sandi - get a few from different brands and find out which one works best for you. I have tried a few, but I have always gone with essie, as for me personally and my clients it's given the best results :)

I got some LCN ones from here BCI TRADE - PROFESSIONAL BEAUTY PRODUCTS
You have to register before you can see the prices but they're very reasonable, and really good quality. PM me if you want more info.
