    I have a nail that is not being held on by my skin under my nail. can I still do my nails with the messed up nail or should I wait til it grows out n the unattached nail is reattached by the new growing nail.

    I'm not sure about the "pinching " I've never heard of it and not sure what it does. So maybe you could explain that to me. You nails are FABULOUS.

    Hi!! I just wondered is the white an special paint? I see the pot like a uv gel in white is that correct? I'm sorry if it's quite obvious but was just wondering if I don't have white could I use regular polish or gelish before encapsulating? Thanks and great vid by the way! Greetings from Mexico City 😃

    Hi, great tutorial! I was wondering, can you you gel foundation in a bottle….like Gelish….instead of scooping out of a jar with a brush?
