I am now using Shellac and Gelish. Love both products. I think Shellac needs more color choices, but it is my fav to do a french. I am thinking I would love to try OPI, but my issue is buying another lamp. I use my Brisa lamp for both of my gel polishes now and have no problems. I know what the manufactures say about only using the lamp that goes with their product, but REALLY? How many can you fit on your table? LOL My question is: have any of you used the CND gel polish with your Brisa light? Before I invest another $500 in yet another product that I may not like, I really need to know. Thanks for your time. Have a great day everyone.

The OPI gel polishes cure fine in the CND lamp. You will just have to cure like the shellac. Ive been doing this since since they came out without any problems. I wouldnt even dream of spending $400 on a new OPI led lamp.

Oh good. I think I will order just a few colors and give it a try! Thanks for the help!

You wont be disappointed! OPI has the best colors for French. Love Bubble Bath and Alpine Snow!

I also use my CND Shellac lamp for curing the OPI. No issues here!

You are right . Normally I don't like doing frenches with SOG because I'm so used to the nice, crisp lines that thicker, classic gels can give me. Yesterday though I tried to do french with OPI and I liked the results. The Alpine Snow is very nice to work with, stays in place (I did flash cured 1 nail at the time just in case anyway). I used Princesses Rule as a bottom coat for some shimmer. Client loved it!
