Keep Mani Q/polish mixture from drying

Keep Mani Q/polish mixture from drying
0

We have been using the Mani Q and polish mixture with great success. But....as there is actual polish in it, it tends to dry out quickly. I guess keeping it covered up while using it might work, but I am curious how everyone else does it?

Its a shame young nails even said this was ok to do, as this can cause issues via that nail polish that is not dry, leeching into the nail plate and surrounding tissues for who knows how long. Its trapped there by the gel, and how much of that gel didn't cure through because the nail polish pigment was to high for penetration of the UV rays? I would toss that self made mixture and opt for their gel polish pre-made by a chemist. Just my view since the other is just playing with fire.
Young Nails is said to have a really nice, smooth applying gel polish, with easy removal, but as a renewed lover of Polish Pro and a Gelish or Eco fan, I would also recommend those.

Shall I get you are ruler so you can rap my knuckles now?

Your opinion on the safety of this matter was not asked for nor necessary. I have been doing it this way for a very long time, with great success and absolutely NO adverse reactions. For someone who doesn't know what they are doing, yes, this could be a disaster. Fortunately for me, and all my clients, I am extremely well educated and many years under my belt. Most of the clients I have are wonderful friends of almost thirty years. Hopefully, you too will reach this same status, someday.

Now, if anyone else has an answer to my question, I would like to hear it.

Now that was uncalled for, and extremely unprofessional on your part!

It doesn't have anything to do with your "education". I wasn't implying your an idiot, unlike yourself. And I am no newb, been a tech for 18 years and an instructor for several of those. What it is about, is saftey, and since you weren't here for the ruling from Doug Schoon, Scientific advisor for CND telling us exactly what I told you, then I think you need to know.
Keep using it, and when an allergy arises on your client from continued over exposure to uncured nail polish, you will know where to look in your product line.
Now to find that ruler.

Oh, I was there for the 'Ruling', from Judge Schoon, Peggy. Being as well educated as you are, you know that EVERY product we put on our nails does some sort of damage.

Lecturing me on the safety procedures is not necessary. I simply asked for an answer to my question, not a reprimand for what I was doing.

I have been on this board for a very long time, many years. I had to sign in on a different name because I was having log in problems, and it was easier to just make a new one. I have read many of your posts, and all though I applaud many of the things you say, I also find you quick to reach out and sting those posters you may not agree with. Whenever I see a topic where there is a bit of arguing going on...I immediately look for your name...and there it is. Unfortunately, this has become one of those topics, and I feel it is time to end this conversation. I will not argue on Deb's board.

Have a pleasant day, Peggy.

More uncalled for words from you. Who's arguing? Just you really. Maybe you ought to go back and reread my first reply to you Mrs. Rogers. There was not a mean word, not a condescending tone, nothing but telling you that its not a good practice and that in my opinionyou should toss the self mix and opt for an easier safer method because WE have been told of its dangers. And gave a few product names I love to use.
You took it upon yourself to take that as a reprimand. I actually am not interested in what you think of me.

PS I suppose if this method of yours was really popular and there weren't any already made gel polishes, then you would have a flood of helpful replies. In my opinion that is.

UPDATE:
I spoke with Raymond from YN on the phone today, and he assured me that the practice of mixing Mani Q and polish is perfectly safe and will cause no issues as long as you are properly applying it, as with any enhancement. All instructions can be found on their Facebook page.

If you have to have your soak off gel in a bottle..Eco will be coming out in bottles very shortly...January..it will have a bottle design so you can get to the bottom of the bottle easier for less waste...and matching polish for toes...it will also be either uv or led curable...and the new lamp will be uv/led as well. The price points will also lower than what we are use to paying right now!

BETTER UPDATE!

My advice is, "don't" try. Anything can be harmful if used improperly. Thousands of people die from water every year, so all chemicals, including water, UV gels, and topcoats must be used properly.

If you mix two products together that were not designed to be mixed together, you're ignoring manufacturers instructions and using both products inappropriately. What could happen? The very fact that you are not sure should warn you away from trying such a thing. If something unexpected happens, it will likely be considered negligence, since you ignored manufacturer's instructions.

Products are carefully formulated and balanced to perform best when used correctly and properly. Besides service breakdown and nail plate damage, there is a chance that you or your client could develop adverse skin reactions when these products are used improperly. My advice, stick to the instructions and use products as directed.

Is there another set of instructions where they discuss mixing ManiQ with regular polish? The one I visited that was posted on a similar thread mentions NOTHING about mixing with regular polish. It discusses mixing ManiQ gel to ManiQ color (gel polish). https://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_i...7051790039

For certain, there should be no reason not to be able to mix products for sake of new color or to color gel nails.

To answer the original post, there is an orange bowl that's a UV light blocker you can turn over your tile while you're not working with it. They are used by dental labs to keep their product from curing.

And, I'll add, I was standing in front of Greg Salo at the Premiere Show two years ago when he said to put your ManiQ on a tile, pour on top whatever polish you choose, and blend it on the tile to customize your ManiQ application for your client.
