My comment would be to make sure you understand application techniques of anything that you are currently using. In another thread you posted you are having problems with your current brand of gel. Sometimes we think the problem is with the product when it's really with our technique. As someone who product-hopped early on in my career, I can honestly say the majority of the time I didn't like the product, it had nothing to do with the product but with my lack of proper training to use it.

So the product that is 'better' is the one that works the best for you. Consider how many steps you want to do to create a set of nails. Do you prefer a one-step gel? Or a system with many different gels such as builders, bonders, top coats? There are so many different products out there, and you have to try them until you find the one that works. What works for me may or may not work for you. The most important thing is to receive the proper instructions for using the products, and then follow them to the letter.

Hope I've helped Smile

I totally agree. It's not always a question of one system being "better" than another - it's what is best suited for you. You mentioned you've tried gels you weren't thrilled about. What things about these gels didn't you like? (ie. not user-friendly, not enough color options, etc.) If you are bit more specific about what you are looking for, I think you could get some great recommendations from this site.

There are many good gel lines out there. Who has the best support in your area? Is there someone that can mentor you?

thank you very much for your help.indeed i guess i have to find a gel line that is easy for me.that means i want to use a one phase gel.i find it easier that to work with many different jars.until now i was using brisa and i was sattisfied but with the economy crisis in my country and the vat that is 23% products are extremely expensive.for the small jar of brisa gel i have to pay 45 usd!not to mention that a lot of girls don't have insurance and their services are way cheaper than mine and in these times people don't go after the best one but someone that is cheap.im trying to find ways to increase my work.i feel really bad that i have to drop my prices but i don't have any other option.the problem is how much should i drop them when i have to pay for insurance ,taxes etc and all these girls don't pay nothing and they have day job as well.apart from that in my town and country in general its not so easy to find a mentor in the same city!my city is small and very competitive.people are trying to steal clients and that is something that i cannot do.i always believed that at the end only the good ones survive but im having second thoughts.
i highjacked my own post Tongue anyway i would really love your input again and your advice of how i could bring more clients back.

How do you tell a good gel line?

When they put their money where their mouth is.

Gelousy has a 100% unlimited lifetime money back guarantee.

I make the best stuff in town hands down and I will go up against anyone anytime.

Our stuff just works. 99.98% of customers have never used our guarantee. And the few that did were retiring from nails and just wanted some quick cash or never even opened it.

There are numerous gel lines out there, pretty much all have some form of quarantee. The successful ones are pretty obvious, they wouldn't still be in business if their products didn't work. ALL of them feel like THEY make the best stuff out there.....the best way to tell how good a co. is imo, is the helpfulness, the willingness to communicate eagerly to help take care of any problems that come up while the tech is learning to use the product.

I've yet to work with a gel line that didn't work, it generally issues with application that makes a gel not 'work'.

you are totally right!as far as ten the help i got from all of you and the company is more than i could imagine!i wish i was living closer and meet you in person!i have learned so many things from all of you that even in the best school i wouldn't have learned!
jlburkhardt i haven't contacted nsi here.in my country most of the companies don't give samples for free and i cannot spend so much money to get full size jars when i only want to try.have you ever tried nail creation?
