Bella, Polish Pro is in a polish bottle, not a pot. There are obviously variances in each product range, but generally it is applied similarly to Shellac and Gelish (Base, two coats of color, Top). As we've covered in this thread, Polish Pro should be cured in a UV lamp. It's suitable for natural nail overlays or over enhancements, but you can't extend with Polish Pro alone (too thin and flexible). If you need more detailed information, feel free to check out our web site: http://www.nsinails.com/products/polish-...olish.html

Thanks Sobeit! Great point that I missed. Polish Pro does contain solvents, unlike a "true" gel.

I cannot wait to try the Gel Pro Jessie.
Hey I have the new sedona collection and for those of you looking for the perfect flesh tone nude, not pink, Sedonas got a big ol Butte is perfect and I mean perfect. I have been wearing it for a few weeks and I cant stop admiring them. My clients all left donning Phantom Ranch which is a brick rust red. Really stunning and a nice change from the cool reds of the Holidays. The Blue is fantastic too.
I saw those drops and thought, yes! finally some thinner!
:lol:

OK, Sedona's Got a Big Ole Butte and Phantom Ranch have been two of my FAVORITE colors since we launched this whole Polish Pro thing. We did a photo shoot with SGABOB on a model and it was just GORGEOUS. I was so jealous - wish I had prettier hands (and didn't bite my nails), but I digress. I'm so happy you like the colors. We have the same taste :wink:
Thank you for posting Jessie!

I have another question. I tried curing Polish Pro (the original version) in LED light (the G6 from Gelish)
I cured the base (20 sec) and color ("Midnight"- gorgeous BTW) layers (30 sec) and they "felt" right. The top coat after 30 seconds cured dull (after wiping with 99% alcohol) and felt rubbery. I tried 2 x 30 sec. Dull.
I finally cured it in UV lamp (Shellac lamp) for 2 minutes and finally I got some shine.
What am I doing wrong with the LED lamp? Undercuring? Overcuring?
Help Smile

Ahhh... missed that Wink

Stick with UV with Polish Pro. That is the only way to be sure you will get a complete cure. It's not currently formulated for LED.
Last question...
How do you guys find the removal? Does the shine/top coat have to be removed?

I have done both and for me didn't find one way faster. So I don't file the top coat at all with polish pro. It tends to be released and falling off in the foil within 5-8 min. I love it and it beats all others I have used for soak off ease, time and nail condition.
Thank you for the info sobeit!
How do you find wearability?
Any "must have" colors?

TIA,

Anna

Anna, you mentioned that you had some "old" POlish Pro kicking around. Does your Base Coat have an orange sticker on the bottom of it?

Thanks for your help Jessie!

Well, it's not that old Wink I got it last year at the show in Chicago...
The base coat doesn't have a orange sticker Sad
I used it once, just yesterday :cry:

I got 6 gels special:
1 base coat, 2 top coats and 3 colors: Midnight, Peony Pink and a brown (like Fedora)
Is the top coat no good as well?

Well, it's not that they're "no good", but we did tweak the formulas a bit and I'd like you to use the most up-to-date formula. I'd be happy to send you a new Base & Top Coat (and I'll throw in a bottle of our Renew). E-mail me at [email protected] with your information. I'll have our distributor in Canada send them out to you.
Thank you very much Jessie!
I really appreciate your help!!

I have emailed you with my details.

All the best,

Anna Lajourdie

Once again, Jessie you rock! Awesome customer service. Who is our distributor in Canada?

Depends on where you are located. For Anna, it's Central Beauty Supply for Polish Pro. Here is a list of distributors in Canada: http://www.nsinails.com/distributors/area/canada.html
Thanks Jessie, mine would be the same as Anna's Smile
When is the new Gel Pro going to be available? I'm excited to try it.

Also, when the Polish Pro was reformulated, was all the "old" stock out there recalled, or if I order some is there a chance some places are still selling the old version?
That's what I was wondering Gelishly. I ordered base and top from Beauty West, but I don't know if it's the newer "tweaked" formula. I contacted NSI through their website at least 2, maybe even 3 weeks ago, and I still haven't received a response. That was my exact question to them...??? :/

I've also ordered from beautywest and another supplier. The formulation seems hit or miss, which is really disappointing. I didn't find the renew drops to work all that well on my original greige which was horrendous to use, so I sent the others I had ordered that were gloppy back.
