About Zebra liquids:
The 2 in 1 Liquids is where you are using the base and top out of the same bottle. Actvate is used to activate the reaction between the dip powder and the base coat for proper application. The Essential Liquids versus the ez liquids have a different thickness to the base and top coats in each of those sets giving different results. The Essential Liquids - our original set, has a lower odor. The shine is great. Some people have found doing a swipe with alcohol after the activate helps it have even more shine. Ez Liquids has a tad thicker top coat, it has more shine but does have a higher odor. People with the "dip flu" typically do not have issues with Zebra liquids. Dip UV Top Coat dries without a UV/gel light but will show a purplish tint under blacklight or uv Ray's. Prep - is a ph prep to help with the ph balance on the nail bed itself. This will help products adhere better and last longer. Brush/Saver Cleaner is used to clean your brush if it gets contaminated. You would soak your brush in brush cleaner until the residue comes off of the brush and it is no longer stiff. You would then dry the brush out completely and replace it in the bottle of liquids. The brush in the liquids will be ready in approximately 1 hour. Cuticle Oil, Balm or Lotion is used around the cuticle area of the nail to soften and remove dry or hardened cuticle so your hand appear beautifully hydrated. Matte Top Coat - for a matte finish after all application of dip powder and activate is done.Gel Base & (No Wipe) Gel Top Coats must be cured with a UV/LED light to work properly. Many people do the dip process with gel liquids or top the dip liquids with a no wipe gel top coat. Thinner - if you contaminate your base or top coat (fairly hard to do with our liquids) put a few drops in and it will restore your liquids. Peel Base - use for short mani changes. Place on nail before dip process. Will only last 2-5 days typically. Liquid Latex - to use around nail bed for cleaner application.
