Glaze n Go from nsinails.co.uk is what I use, its fab! Cure under UV light - gives the best high glossy shine and also seats & protects. No primer is needed :)

Why dont you just finish the enhancment in the usual way and then give it a good buff with a Girlfriend or a Glossing Buffer? You can get the super shiney look with both of these?!
Just a though! xxx:hug:

I also use Glaze N Go and its well worth the money as it lasts on the nails and looks good for over 3 weeks.

Your profile just says "acrylic" as the system you use atm so maybe you could tell us more about yourself in your profile mate?
Most of the nail systems you read about on the site have a gel top coat, is there one that the company you buy all your products from suggests? x

sometimes you need a chemical resistant top coat though, I always coat my L&P enhancements with the BRISA top coat, remember L&P is not chemical resisitant, Brisa is, it is buff off not soak off. all my hairdresser clients, and anyone who works with solvents gets a coat of brisa to stop them melting their nails off. :)

Hi Hon,

I use the Creative products for everything but I have to say the Young Nails 'Finish Gel' is very good indeed it is just like applying nail varnish, not think and glupey at all and then when cured for 2 mins, there is no sticky residue to wipe away, just ready to go! The Creative Brisa one is also very good but it is quite thick to apply - still looks amazing though!

Go and read the tutorials on PREP, Improper prep is the LEADING cause of lifting, next is mix ratio, then touching living tissue etc, you need to sit down and work out what you are not doing right, especially if a majority of your clients are getting lifting.

hi i use the edge gel, just apply a very tin coat cure for 150 seconds and wipe....
you can even paint any color polish and remove it with any nail polish remover and you will always have a shine, just a light buff off before you do your refills next time, and you get lots of gel for your money.
