Where would I buy this nail polish, so nice :)

Hi Khrystyna,
The Crackle polishes sold out extremely fast, so it's very limited, but you can still find them at Sally Beauty and Ulta

Love the color combinations you used. I wish I could color my nails the way you do. Withought painting the cuticles and so nice and neat. I recently purchased the Black Mesh on and love it but I hate that after doing a few nails, the polish left on the opening of the bottle where I wiped the brush does not slide down like it usually does. It becomes a bigger and bigger blob and then gets stuck in the brush when I try to dip it to keep doing my nails. I have to clean the rim a couple of times to be able to finish and def at the end of my manicure. Is this normal or did I get a bad bottle? I hope it's not normal since I want to buy more colors before they dissapear. Or should I try OPI instead? Help Steph.

Hi Yanny,
Aww, thank you! I plan on doing a "How I paint my nails" tutorial soon!

Unfortunately, this is pretty normal. Most of the Crackle Polishes I've experienced with become very thick and chunky over time. You'll definitely want to invest in a nail polish thinner, if you haven't already done so. Instead of wiping the excess paint on the rim, try to wipe more in the bottle of the rim - that's why I try to do. But regardless, I always usually clean the rim after so my bottle won't mold together and be impossible to open.

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.

I missed out on speed, looks like a gorgeous high-end purple. btw, are you still thinking of selling studio m nail polishes on your website? thanks

Hi Sarah,
I'm not sure about retail stores, but you can still find them on

Sarah said, on Jun 12th, 2012 2:19 pm regarding Summer Collection: China Glaze Poolside
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.
