      Just a tip for some people who are having trouble ordering. You can also order the clear ones on amazon. I got mine there and they work great! I just ordered the colored ones on Aprés website (amazon doesn’t have the colored, that I could find) and I’m NOT a professional.

    Its funny to me you mentioned the cuticle area on these being a little messy. I was honestly impressed LOL. I have NEVER gotten a professional acrylic set done in my life that had a smooth cuticle are. i'm usually spending about 75$ they aren't cheap. i still have to go home and file them down to get rid of the huge ridge that is at the cuticle. I have stopped going to get my nails done altogether because its too expensive to spend money on something that looks so poorly done and have to go back over the work again once I get home. This looks like such a cool game changer thanks for the demo Suzie!

    Why does it burn when curing the nail? It will burn for a little bit and sometimes it just burns too much

    1. Whip Lash

      hey! some times that means that you have a little too much gel on the nail and need to apply it in thinner coats. Its a chemical reaction of the gel curing under the light it causes it to heat up really fast and you feel that. thinner coats will result in a smaller chemical reaction. you can always pull your hand out when you start to feel that heat and blow on the nail to cool it off and then finish curing it after the discomfort subsides. Also, your nail plate may be naturally thinner than others or it could be filed too thin or damaged which can make things more sensitive to the heat, when you prep your nails try not to file the top too much, you want to remove the superficial shine from the nail plate and that is all! you really don't need to file much at all. try taking a biotin and collagen supplement that will help strengthen and thicken your natural nails if you aren't already! Good luck xoxo

    I wonder if it’s really necessary to buff the entire surface of the nail when applying gel polish. I’d understand if it was regular polish, but if they’re both made of gel don’t they just meld together when being cured? 🤔

    1. Whip Lash
      Whip Lash

      it needs that roughed up surface help it meld together and last longer, it will still work but your nails won't stay on as long as if you were to rough the surface. WHich is kind of a neat trick if you want the nails to only be temporary you can skip the buffing and they will come off a lot easier

    I'm trying to do my own nails and I am having problems with the gel tips pinching my nail. I am not a wimp but after a day I am ready to soak those suckers off! I tried thinning the nail tips with my e-file and I think it helped some, although it is a lot of work. Am I doing something wrong?

    They are great, just wondering if the tips can break / take off from the gel on the finger? Are they as strong as acryl nails or do they break easy?

    It seems to take the skill out of the equation. A client just sees that you glued a tip on them. They will believe that they could have done that themselves and will complain.

      My hands are in water and soap about 85% of the time during the day (ocd)...the nails dont start to lift for me until 3-4 weeks and my natural nails are longer. I'm a hairstylist with 4 daughters super busy picking at everything with my nails they get abused and are still durable. Its worth a try. I use to be acrylic but I've never gone back after choosing gel nails
