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)..

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?
