#1
Anyone using this new product? It's a hard LED Gel!
Seems interesting!!

No one has tried this- @ IBS @ Premier? I'm so excited to find a hard gel that is a builder & used LED light & thought someone on here has to be using?

I just received my rock hard led gel. I bought it mainly for my hairstylist clients who use gel polish. When they do "color" on their clients, their nails turn brown, due to the gel polish being porous. I was told at the IBS show that it could protect the gel polish. I used it today for the first time. Will update in a couple of weeks when she comes back. I hope it works!
I love nails!

Did them this afternoon- smooth sailing!! She felt NO HEAT SPIKE & they went on quickly with the 30 second cure!! I really wish I had ordered some Artistic gel polishes now!!! I just hate buying stuff & it sitting!
But using Hard Gel that's LED cured is awesome! I even did one nail on each hand in Glitter- I used the clear brush on & sprinkled glitter- pressed it down- cured & used the brush on clear again & cured wonderfully!!!

I have just started using rock hard gels been nail tech on and off since 2006 but she has had my sculptures on 6 days and 2 have popped off what have i done wrong. i dehydration nail with 99% alcohol. non acid prep it after all cuticle remove and hand wash etc etc, used clear sculptured and white and finished ? They looked gorgeous ? Is it because i didn't use the brush on gel as a base? ....
 Reply
#12
I am new & always follow steps still. I used their brush on base. However I didn't sculpt anything. I have Rock Hard on since mid July & no issues. I have Rock Hard on 3 other people & no issues so far either. I have done fills on them as well with no problems. I do use all the steps in the set. Maybe that base is the cause?

I actually purchased an LED lamp while in manicuring school to use for practice & it turned out to work awesome for me - USpicy 18watt LED light. Been using it successfully since October 2012! Tried the Rock Hard in regular 36watt UV lamp as well as LED & no heat spikes either way! :-)

Unfortunately, Artistic's website shows no contact information.

Are they applying color without gloves?!

Do not use the Gelish mini light for hard gel.
 Reply
#22
gloves?? Not sure what u mean?

Artistic Rock Hard (hard) gel will cure in LED. They sell a lamp to go with it.

The Gelish mini light is an LED light. You don't think
it will cure it?

I know it won't cure it. It only works with gel polish.

The Artistic LED lamp is 30 watt LED - if Gelish mini is LESS I would not use.
I have contacted Artistic about instructions on curing the hard gel in LED lamp & how to apply correctly- they responded quickly from their official Facebook page. I purchase the Rock Hard gels & have used them on myself & a few people successfully - I love the LED quicker use. I recently purchased the New LCN gels try me kits in Black Diamond & Cosmiq - these are Hard Gels that cure in LED as well. I love how quick it is & I'm not getting ANY heat spikes either!!!
