New Feature: Stephs Photo Gallery

Stephs Closet New Site Feature Photo Gallery 

Please make sure you read very carefully before using any photos.  

UPDATED 5/1/12

The Photo Gallery is my candy land filled with images I've taken since I launched Steph's Closet back in 2007. From makeup displays to nail polish swatches, and lots more!  Right now, I have over 3,200 hi-quality pictures in the Photo Gallery and over 10,000 in my database that I'll eventually convert over. The best part is, I'm giving all my friends and fans complete access with very little stipulations.

1. All Celebrity and Entertainment photos are property of and cannot, by any means, be used without written permission from them. This is a monthly paid subscription and is forbidden to use their images. To check out more information on a Wire Image subscription click here.  

2. Anything watermarked with the Steph's Closet logo is sole property of and NOT Google or any other search engine service that displays images. Under a few conditions, I will allow anyone to use my watermarked photos:

A. You must credit the original source with a mention of Steph's Closet and a direct link back to the particular image or blog post that is being referenced.

B. (mostly pertains to bloggers) As I'm pretty lenient with my picture use policy, it is forbidden to use an entire collection of photos (e.g. Nubar Jelly Beans or any other collections with several images) to generate content for your site.

C. Watermarked images should never be altered, it must remain in its original form (e.g. watermark removed or edited, text added, lighting adjusted, etc). 

D. Under no circumstances should my pictures be used for personal/business gain (e.g. earning revenue from online shops like Ebay, Copious, Yahoo and Amazon - or community sharing sites like Luuux where you earn credits to buy product). However, I will make certain exceptions for some retailers but you MUST contact me directly to get written permission.

If I happen to discover my picture sharing policy has been violated, I will kindly contact you and ask the image(s) be removed within 48-72 hours. As picture theft is becoming a huge problem this year, I will not hesitate to send a C&D for those who don't comply within the given time period. 

Please feel free to contact me if you any questions on a particular image, or if you would like to report someone abusing the picture sharing policy.

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

Hi Sarah,

Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
