LCN Polish Seal?
#1
A client of mine brought in an page from her Prevention magazine that talks about LCN's Polish Seal. Has anyone used this product? Does it work as well as they claim? Can you remove it with 100% pure acetone?

I've always heard that you should never apply a cured topcoat over regular polish because one cures and the other evaporates. The LCN website claims you must use their "solvent free remover". Solvent free remover? That isn't even possible, a basic chemistry class will tell you that.

Thanks for you replies!

I Googled the product to see what you were talking about, and found a gem! I found a page on nailpro.com with a video of LCN's Polish Seal on Dr. Oz's show promoting it! Oh the humor.

Apparently you polish it on top of your freshly-painted color coat, and then hold your hand under a 60 watt bulb (plain ol' lightbulb) for 3 minutes. So, maybe it "cures" via heat?
...well, LCN's website says you can also use UV to cure the polish. I found this video too:

It looks like they just rub the remover on and it peels off in chunks. LCN's website says its acetone-free, so I'm also very interested to figure out how it all works!

naildiva,

do you feel it works better over polish than regular top coat such as Out the Door or Seche Vite?

NailDiva, do you use the LCN remover to remove it or something else? Does pure acetone or non acetone polish remover work?

I've been waiting for someone to reply to the thread, I'm still very interested Tongue!

LCN's website should provide MSDS listing ingredients . . .

I bought it a few weeks ago and my clients love it. Its not a gel formula, I believe its more like seche UV top coat, which also is not a gel formula, which makes it works perfectly over regular nail polishes. It's super shiny and does make the polish last longer. different clients have different results, some lasted a full 2 weeks while those who are hard on their hands lasted a week! I love this stuff. Its removed just as you normally remove nail polish, no need for any special remover, its comes off just as easy as normal nail polish with non- acetone nail polish remover, or acetone remover.

i have the polish seal, and i had used it over some of my regular nail polish nail art displays, and it stripped the colors and made it smear all over the place. Sad you definately need to use a regular top coat, then the polish seal. i haven't used it, since i hardly EVER do a regular polish mani. wondering if this would work better as a top coat then the gel top coats i use for the gel polish manis. i use ACG, Shellac, and Gellish so far. all top coats yellow over the lighter color polishes such as pink and whites.

I got this at a networking event back in May. I love it! It definitely dry the polish fast. The trick is to let each coat of polish dry 4 minutes before applying the next coat. (This is from the LCN rep) Then cure the polish seal for 3-4 minutes in a uv lamp or 1 minute in an led lamp (depending On the shade - longer for darker colors) Only thing I wish would be better is the shine. It's shiny, but does not keep that high gloss shine for a full week.

Chrissy - do you charge extra when you use this seal?

@Plumgirl - I haven't charged extra for it because most of my clients are gel polish clients. However, I definitely would charge an extra $5 or $7 for it.

I use it and I love it LCN is one of the best gel systems that you can use. The polish sealer is for regular polish and you can cure it in a LED light. The only polish it doesn't seem to work with is China Glaze. I actually took a class . It is a great product
