CARE WARNINGS
Since the Dip Liquids are air-dry products, it is normal that they can get dried over time. To ensure they stay in their best shape, they must be cleansed and sealed tightly after each use. 

DO NOT FORCE STUCK BOTTLES OPEN.
This may cause glass bottles to shatter.

We highly recommend to use #5 Brush Saver for bottles that are unable to open. The purpose of #5 Brush Saver is to effectively cleanse, and dissolve any solidified dip powder on brushes both in-between and after use

To open stuck bottles:
Place in very warm water for 2-3 minutes. This will help loosen the dried product.
After 5 minutes, carefully remove from water and swipe #5 Brush Saver around the rim of your bottle and open slowly.
If bottle is still not opening, repeat steps with warmer water.

To clean hardened brushes:
Simply insert the hardened brush into #5 Brush Saver and allow a few minutes to dissolve. You can also opt to swap the #5 Cap + Brush with the hardened bottle regardless of which type.

Disappointed in Base #2 for Dip Powder System

Firstly when I received my Dip Powder starter kit, both the #2 and #3 bottles leaked out a lot of the liquid when I opened them - it was like there was a pressure build-up or something. I let BSG know and they replaced the bottles right away which I appreciated. I don't use the dip powder system all the time as I do a French Manicure with just the liquid gel system most of the time. When I first started using the products, the #2 Base was great! However, I went to use the original bottle of #2 base recently (which I hadn't used for a few months) and it was really sticky and pretty-much unusable. I opened the replacement bottle that they had sent me (which was quite a long time ago now) and it was the same - very sticky and unusable. I'm not sure if these products have a shelf life or not but it was approximately a year ago I think that I had them replaced. I'm quite disappointed in the #2 base and may just look for another resin product that I can use with the system...

Hi Kathie,

Thank you for taking the time to review #2 Dip Liquid Base.

We are sorry to hear your experience with this product has been anything less than perfect.

To confirm, our Dip Powder system does have a shelf life of 12 months after use.
As the liquids are air-dry products, they will begin to harden and dry out over time.

In regard to your new bottle that has not been open, this should not be the case.
Please email our customer service team at onlinesales@bioseaweedgel.com with this photo and your order number for us to further assist.

We look forward to assisting you.

Best Regards,

I opened the replacement bottle that they had sent me (which was less than a year ago) and it was the same - very sticky and barely useable. I'm not sure if these products have a shelf life or not? but unopened, I would think they would be good for at least a year! I'm quite disappointed in the #2 Base and may just look for another resin product that I can purchase here and use with the system... I tried to attach a video to show how sticky it is but it wouldn't let me so I'm attaching a picture which doesn't do the full justice of showing how thick and gooey it is.

Great product

It seems that the base has been re-formulated and it much easier to apply than what came in the previous glass bottle (applies as a nicer/thinner coat for dipping). A little note also came to explain the difference in weight between the old and new packaging which was great, however now that the bottle is bigger and the volume is the same its much harder to reach the bottom with the brush so I combined two bottles of base into one and its made it much better easier for use.

disappointed

I have been purchasing these for a while now and we go through the #2 pretty quickly as there are 3 of us always doing our nails. We received the plastic bottles the last few times, and am disappointed that they are only half full. When I wrote an email to the company they say that they are only filling these to 15ml. Disappointed that they are the same price for half the amount. And knowing that these are going out of stock as soon as all the dips are gone, I'm going to have to pay double the price to get a full bottle. Sad to see these go and disappointed in the price for the amount of liquid.

Hi Sara,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for #2 Base.
We are sorry to hear you are not completely satisfied with this product.

However, we would like to kindly clarify a misunderstanding with the filling of this product.
All Dip Liquids, including #2 Base, have always been designed for a 15mL fill.
Thus, the newly upgraded plastic bottles are not 'half full,' rather they are all the original 15mL fill and pricing.

The reason why the new bottles may seem 'half full' is because there is technically extra room to fill over the 15mL.
We kept our Dip Liquids at the original 15mL fill to ensure no spillage, which is why we also added a new leak-guard inside these bottles.

Lastly, as we will continue to stock and restock our Dip Liquids as the Dip Powder Colours continue sale, we hope you can take advantage of our on-going promotions!

We hope this helps to clarify the situation and as always, we invite you to email us at onlinesales@bioseaweedgel.com if there is anything else we can do to make this right.

Best Regards,
BSG
