Default Re: Question on UV fly finish

Nail salons use UV acrylic for doing nails. It could be the same stuff or it might not, I couldn't tell you. For me, the name brands, CCG, Bug Bond, Deer Creek etc. are worth the price. For me anyways, I get more moneys worth out of those than I do with 2 part epoxies because the 2 parts usually harden in the tubes on me after I use them once or twice. The ease of application is worth the cost to me as well.

One other thing, a friend of mine in the UK has tried the nail salon stuff, I am not sure if he has fished with the flies after so I don't know how it holds up BUT, he did say it STINKS. To me, it wouldn't be worth breathing in the smell of chemicals like that, the CCG I use has no scent at all.
