PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Fuse Gelnamel has been developed for our customers who did not want the multiple steps & 2 week wear of a full gel polish, but still wanted no dry time. Fuse is a completely new type of product. Neither a full gel, or a standard polish – it’s a combination that applies in 1 coat (you can do 2 if you prefer), cures in 30 seconds and lasts for up to 7 days. It is also super portable – the one finger lamp works from the mains or from your laptop with the USB lead provided!

Kit Contains:
Fuse LED lamp
Fuse Gelnamel (10.65ml)
Cleanser
12 lint-free wipe
Double sided nail buffer

FOR BEST RESULT
It is essential for Fuse to work properly that the process is followed from start to finish on one nail at a time
• Buff entire nail
• Wipe with cleanser
• Apply a thin coat of polish
• Cure for 30 seconds (lamp has an automatic timer)
• Wipe with cleanser – & you’re done
Only after 1 nail is complete should you move onto the next one.
If you prefer 2 coats for a more opaque colour, or for layering a glitter polish over a solid shade, this should be done after the first cure & before the wipe.
Note re colours: As Fuse is curable in light, it cannot be put into clear bottles. This means they have to be painted so the colour on the inside may not be identical to the outside. Solid colours are very good match, but it is a little more difficult with the glitters as they are clear polish with glitter particles in. Please see hand shots for best representation.
 
WHY I LIKE THIS PRODUCT
The kit outlines a super easy method of applying gel polish at home with no need for a base or top coat. Not to mention the entire kit only retails for around $25 CAD and look at how cute the little LED lamp is! This lamp is going to make it a lot easier for traveling and for vacations where you need a chip free manicure. The LED light can also be used for toes as well because the top of the lamp is removable, which allows you to switch it around to use for a pedicure. The steps to follow are not that difficult but you must make sure you complete one nail at a time.
 

Another thing that I also enjoy about this product is that it dries so quickly. After curing the nail for 30 seconds inside the LED light, the nail is completely dry. No wait time is required. This is amazing for anyone who is tight on time but still wants nice nails. The large lid of the polish will take some time getting used to because it may be difficult to handle.
 

Let’s look at the polish itself. Overall, I’m pretty please with my manicure. But I noticed that after around 4 days of wear, you do start to notice a little chipping action at the end. However, since the glitter polish is rather clear, it’s not very noticeable. But of course, I can’t guarantee this for the cream colours. Removal was easy, just soak it in 100% acetone using the nail wrap method and it removes fairly easily and quickly.
 
PROS
-Super easy method that anyone can follow
-One coat application (No base/top coat)
-Easy removal process
-Great color selection – total of 12 vibrant colours to choose from
-Small LED lamp, great for travel. You can also plug it into your computer to use because it uses a USB cord

CONS:
-Doesn’t quite last for a full week without chipping

    If you don’t like the bulky cap…just screw on the cap, then pull it off and under the bulky part will be a skinny normal looking cap… its a lot easier to handle when you’re painting!
