Well you have a very valid question here.. because BS Extreme is a resin based system and the gel polish soaks off in acetone which will break down the resin, you have cause for concern here.. To get the right answer for you, I just emailed my 2 contacts over at BS to come and respond..

From Backscratchers Roe Van Epps:

Any gel polish can be used over any Backscratchers product. The application is as follows:

Gel Polish Application

1. Complete the entire Backscratchers product application as directed. Final result with a shinny cured surface.
2. Using a 240 grit file, slightly buff the finished nail surface – being careful to not reduce the product, just remove all shine.
3. Dust off nail surface.
4. Apply gel polish as instructed by manufacturer – be sure to apply their base/adhesion layer, color and top coat.

Removing the gel polish is usually done with pure acetone. Unfortunately, this also dissolves the Backscratchers products as well.

Therefore, I usually removed the gel polish with a 100 & 180 grit file, which will remove the color but keep the integrity of the product underneath. Just be sure to reseal the Backscratchers product surface when you are done – even if you are reapplying gel color.
