Default Re: Question on UV fly finish

if anybody wants to try a uv resin go to the solarez website and buy a tube for about $4. they have 3 different vicosities to choose from

then go to the big auction website that starts with an E and search for uv curing lights and you will find some from $3 and up

or search on the big auction website that starts with an E for lina uv topcoat. i think it goes for $3-4 per bottle. yes its shipped from somewhere in asia but i think it only took a week to get it. if you cant wait for it to arrive, uv nail products can be purchased at your local big box store starting with a W or the store that has a red bullseye or maybe the $1 store

use the light for a preliminary cure and then set your fly out in sunlight for about 1/2 hour for a complete cure. the sun is the ultimate uv curing light and most likely a bazillion times more powerful than a uv flashlight! (and thats a lot of power)

if the uv resin is still tacky, wipe with an alcohol wipe or overcoat with sally hansens hard as nails fingernail polish or equivalent.
