soak off gel question (hope it done sound silly)

Postby mrs pellow » Sun Aug 12, 2012 10:12 am

ok just was thinking. if i got a full gel system that is soak off .. .like ibd etc..
i did french on tips with white and builder gel all in soak off gel what happens if the client wants say in next visit soak off gel colour my question is if i soaked off the colour gel it would soak of the gel that i put on the nail to start with.
hope this dont sound silly but how would u get around that.

or

if i did a full set of natural tips using the soak off bulider gels etc and then used colour gels over the top ... when the client came next visit how would i remove the colour gel.. wouldnt soaking it remove the whole nail colour and the natural nail tip i put on...

maybe i am just not thinking well enough to work this out my self.

Hi, you are correct - if you soaked off the colour, it would soak off the enhancement also.

If the colour is used over the top of the gel enhancement, I would file off the colour coat and then fill / rebalance and apply a new coat of colour.

Hope that helps :wink:
