I’ve been testing out Gelibility for just over a week now, and I’ve been very impressed. I wouldn’t say I’ve been taking it easy, I’m in the process of a massive declutter, so there’s been a lot of cleaning (I wore gloves when washing up or using any chemicals) moving heavy objects etc, and I also go to the gym three times a week and do weight training.
As you can see, apart from nail growth, there’s no major chips or anything, just some slight tip wear.
I did take a very small chip out of my right thumb, I bent my thumbnail back moving a box – ouch! I was amazed I didn’t do more damage!
My only issue is that I’ve now had the same mani for 8 days and it’s driving me crazy!
I bought the Gelibilty duo from Rainbow Connection not long before Christmas, but with Christmas nail art, I’ve only just got the chance to test it out! As a nail technician just starting out with a mobile business, the cost of gel polish is very expensive, even at trade prices, on top of all the other equipment, it wasn’t something I wanted to buy a lot of, when I have around 500 bottles of normal nail polish! I saw a review of Gelibility, and I was very excited when Rainbow Connection stocked it! I think it is perfect for nail techs who already have a large polish collection, especially having indie brands, being able to turn them into a gel is fantastic.
I’m not a huge fan of gel manicures myself, I like to change my nails too often, I would probably only use it for holidays or something where I wouldn’t have the time/opportunity to change my nails. I’ll be testing out Gelibility for 2 weeks to see how well it lasts for me.
It’s very easy to use, you apply the bonder first, cure it, then remove the tacky layer. You then mix equal parts of the polish you want to use with the soak off gel, apply that to the nails as normal, cure, and repeat if necessary. You then add the soak off gel as a top coat, cure, and remove the tacky layer, done!
I used Models Own Lilac Dream, and W7 Cosmic Purple, both have three coats.
Have you tried Gelibility? What do you think about it?
