Cant help you with suppliers hun but i did notice in your thread that you put brush cleaner,
save yourself some money and stop using it, you need to clean your brush in the monomer that you are using and your brush will be lovely and clean and will live a lot longer too hth

I clean my gel brushes with the cleanser plus (I use mostly IBD gels) - should be all you need - the gel wont cure on the brush unless its near the UV lamp.
Good luck, let us know how you get on.

I use a lint free/gauze pad to remove excess gel from my gel brush, then put it away... I've ruined a couple of gel brushes by using cleanser/scrubfresh to clean them.

I think all gels brushes and techs must be different. I've always cleaned my Bio brushes in Bio Sanitiser, then dipped them in a little Bio polish remover before storing flat. The oil in the polish remover keeps the bristles soft, then I clean in sanitiser again before using. This is the way that Bio trained me and I have never yet lost a brush. Even the very first one I had is still going as strong as the day I bought it!

Best thing hun, is find out what the supplier recommends and stick with that. Can't go far wrong then.

On the subject of wholesalers, I've been looking around myself, just having relocated to North Wales.

I have no idea how good they are but this is one I've come across that seem to have a few branches around the Cheshire area.

Addresses

Or there seems to be a few Sally's around, although i can'[t find a website with addresses on for them

Sally's pricing is all over the place if you ask me....they are really expensive on somethings, but very reasonable on others. Especially the special offer items.

Just checking....you're not going by the label price in Sally's are you? Once you are registered as a trade customer, they are much cheaper than the actual marked price. You can tell the trade price by looking at the price code, but its not obvious.

Sorry, if i'm teaching you to suck eggs (god I hate that phrase!) but it just struck me that sometimes people think the advertised prices are what professionals pay.
