Do you mean color at the tip, or the light color at the cuticle?

I am saying when you fill in the new growth with gel color its lighter than the part that has grown out,

I have had this happen to me. Especially if the color I'm using is slightly sheer.
When you do colored gel, you do 2 coats of color. Then when you do a fill, you do 2 more coats, but you end up having 4 coats on the old part and 2 coats on the new fill area. So the old part looks darker than the new fill area. Does that make sense?
What you can do to fix this is file off all the old color right down to the clear layer, and start fresh each time. Or switch to a color with better coverage that does not get darker with each coat.
Hope this helps you.

If you mean the sheer pinks at the cuticle grow-out (not the tip color and moving the smile line) I haven't ever noticed a difference. If we're talking regular hard gel and not gel polish, the "2 coat vs. 4 coat" would really apply? What I do with a fill is file just a bit off the top of the whole nail, reshaping for the new stress area. Then, because we need to add a bit more gel where the new stress area (apex) is, it really blends nicely. Maybe you're applying the product too thin at the cuticle area? I like to "pillow" a little extra gel at the cuticle, then file off the excess so that I don't get too thin an application, which would then be more prone to lifting. Also, using protein bond over the fill line covers that so it won't show. HTH.

IMO You should remove it every time. For the reason you stated and also because it gets harder and harder the longer the ware it and becomes horribly hard to remove.

Yes, but that's gel polish, it sounds as if the OP is referring to traditional hard gels? We're getting to where even we techs think "gel" means gel polish...
