I've gotten gelcolor basecoat and every time I've used it on natural nails it peels off. If I use the colors with gelish they stay on amazingly well. Any advice?Huh
Are you shaking the bottle? I use OPI base and top coat, and you have to shake it alot to mix the ingredients. I also use a lot of different gel polish brands and they all work fine with the OPI base. Hope this helps.
I have been shaking the bottles, alot. Colors and base. I even shake my gelish even though I've read people say you don't have to just so I don't miss it on one that needs it. So I'm pretty sure that's not it.
My recommendations would be to shake the bottles, store them in a place where sun light doesn't hit them, use OPI's light to see if that helps (if you are not using it already)..

Questions:
1. How are you preparing your nails?
2. What lamp are you using for curing?
3. How thick of a layer are you applying?
4. How long are you curing the base coat and other coats for?
