Full Version: Best soak off gel for natural nail overlay
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
Hi fellow nail techs,

I'm looking for a new gel system to use in my salon. The one I'm currently using doesn't satisfy me enough.

I want to do gel overlays on natural nails on which I will then put gel polish and maybe handpainting, but I don't know which gel system would be best suited for this.

Which brands do you like to do overlays with and how long does it last?
I need something that's flexible yet strong enough to hold up a few weeks. The gel I'm using right now isn't flexible doesn't bend along with the nail so the corners of the tips lift very quickly.

I would also prefer it if it's a soak off gel.

Gelousy is a brand I've come across that seems nice, do any of you have any experience with it?

I posted a reply yesterday but it vanished into the ether, I guess.
I love Gelousy One-Step. It comes in a 1/2 oz polish bottle and it's stupid simple to apply. If you apply a tiny bit of primer to the free edge, it prevents separation but any more than about 1/16th inch and it's a bear to soak off.
Thank you!
I use T.E.N. for my overlay although it's not a soak off gel... love my TEN!!

as for soak off gel: one-step, three-step gel polish are suit for you.   about three-step gel: cat-eye nail polish and 2 in 1 bottle colors nail polish are popular for nail salon.  hope it can help.  #beauty.cameraing.com #
