I have Bluesky stuff as recommended on here - I love it! I've only done it once so far, it lasted 12 days and looked fab. And it's cheap!

you should do a top coat too. it will just be a wee tiny bit of that that comes off then - because oxygen inhibits the curing apparently!

I have gellure stuff

You know how when you've finished all the curing you have to wipe the nails over with some solution? I find that takes off some of the colour on my nails. Does that mean they haven't been cured long enough or that my layers are too thick? Gonna try again tonight and see how I get on! smile

I found the putting them on great...but the taking them off a real palaver!

Can I ask how long it takes for you to do your nails? It takes about 45 mins start to finish at the salon I go to and of course she can paint the other hand while one is curing. Doesn't it end up taking ages doing it yourself?

Also got sensationail - agree thin coats, it is runnier than normal polish but then you use much less!

Is a doddle to do - love that you can clean up easily as it does not dry until you cure it

Patience while curing is worth it as you can do anything 2 seconds after it's done and it just will not smudge!

Oh yes the difference in consistency is hard to get used to!

Not sure what brand will check.

I got one for my birthday too but I found the colours were watery and as you have to do really thin layers then it took about five coats before the colour was built up and even!!

I have sensationail and it is very easy to apply at home. Just remember that when they say thin coats, they mean THIN coatswink

ooh I have looked at these things. Let me know how you get on because paying out £25 every few weeks is beginning to grate on me now.

which one do you have? giraffes

cmot I dont get on well with shellac, didnt last long on me, but I do have Jessica Jelleration and it lasts about 3 weeks.

I do my own shellac, and if I can, anyone can!

Going to have a go today!

I think the patience of it is my biggest challenge!
