Group Encounter

One of my biggest beauty pet peeves is nail polish bubbling, as the only places I like bubbles are in champagne and the bathtub. Nail bubbles are not cute, and after dealing with them recently no matter what techniques I tried (not allowing a lot of air in the nail polish bottles, using a base and top coat, using a thin layer of each application, and the list goes on...) I decided to try a new base and top coat because I suspected that my old base and top coats were the culprits. Sure enough, I was right.
Behold my new favorite base and top coats:

The best base coat ever, I love the "rubberized" texture that allows nail polish to grip onto your nails sans bubbles.
I had heard great things about this top coat, as well as Seche Vite, but Seche Vite's reproductive harm warning was alarming and turned me off. I am very happy with my Out the Door purchase, this top coat is very fast drying and super shiny.


  1. REPRODUCTIVE HARM WARNING?! Gah, how did I never know this? I've been using it for a long time now! Eeep! I use Orly Bonder too. Amazing.

  3. Hi! I would like to open beauty salon. Does anybody have an experience in this business? There are too many options in different salon equipment. Could anybody give me an advise? What store is more reliable to buy Facial brush waterproof and Mens face brush. I'm choosing between Advance-Esthetic.Com and Beauty Supply Online websites.
