I'm mobile but the woman I am learning from has a channel on YouTube. Underthelilyshadow is the name of her channel. Check her out she is awesome :) and she has her email on there so you can message her with questions. She is a licensed tech. And yeah its different than just painting the hardest part is just getting the "feel" of the gel and how to control it but I love it :)

Quoting Pna1Dra6on:

Can you share a good video showing the process of how they work?  Is it much different than just painting your nails?

Have you heard about the dangers of gel nails?  I get mine done with just regular polish but considered gel.  A few days ago on the news I heard they were really bad for you though.  The UV light was a small part of it but the chemicals in the polish plus the chemicals to remove them are really dangerous.  Im concerned now and wont get gel nails.

My mom did tell me about the chemicals in them but I haven't actually heard about it. But there are no chemicals to remove them at all. I have an efile and file them off. I do however wear a mask to remove them since there is a lot of dust. I tend not to listen to the news about things being dangerous and causing cancer. Seems that pretty much everything " causes cancer/harm " somehow lol

What brand do you use? I have been wanting to do these but I wasn't sure how well they worked. I really want to now though! :)
