Gelish and Marbelling
#1
I've been using Gelish for a few months now and have had great success with myself and with my clients. However, I tried marbelling with it and it didn't last the first time more than a week and then second time 2 days and they started to peel. Nothing was different other than dropping the polish on and then taking a brush and swirling around. I dropped three colours then cured for 2 minutes both times. Last night I did them again this time I used rendevous first and applied to the whole nail with one coat. Then dropped sheek white and bella's vampire and swirled.They aren't thick at all, kept them very thin hence the reason for only curing the one time for 2 minutes I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, love this look, please help. After each nail I flashed cured a few seconds then moved on to finish the rest and then the final cure of 2 mins..

The only thing I can think of is; are you still using the gel base before you apply the polish? Because the gels will not adhere if it isn't applied to a tacky or etched surface.

Yes I am not changing the application at all.

I have to start out by saying I am not a Gelish user, however I know that most of the gel polishes talk about always applying VERY thin. Is it possible that when dropping the polish it goes on too thick and peels?

When thinking of the Shellac (what I use regularly), I would think dropping it would make it too thick and not adhere well. I remove almost all of the polish on the brush before I apply so even a drop would be too much.

When I took the Master painter class one of the other techs did a marbling effect on one of my nails. She did the base, then the color tropix 2 coats, then she used a dotting tool and placed random dots in different colors then took the dotter through the dots and it looked marbled

here is a pic but its not a close up
