During winter months Schtik it can crystallize due to the cold during shipping. The product can be returned to it's original state by immersing the pot (tightly closed) in a plastic bag in a dish of very hot water, without it having a negative effect on the performance.
Don't worry about lost embellishments with Schtick It! This amazing gel product will hold all your rhinestones etc. securely, but when the time comes to remove them, they will easily release with clippers or soaking.
Ugly Duckling recommend applying Schtik It to the tacky layer of cured gel polish, or over a finish filed enhancement before the application of top coat.
1. Using the Ugly Duckling Omni Tool, pick up a pearl of Schtik It and apply to the nail. The amount you use, will depend on the amount of embellishments being added to the nail. Do not cure.
2. Using Ugly Duckling Blinger, apply stones, beads, pearls, etc. the Schtik It. Lightly press any embellishments into the Schtik It.
3. Once embellishments are in place, cure in the Ugly Duckling LED lamp for 45 seconds - 1 minute (2 minutes in a UV lamp).
4. Using a Detailer brush, apply No Wipe Top Coat to the exposed Schtik It (and over any pearls or beads you may have applied), then seal the rest of the nail with the Ugly Duckling gel top coat of your choice. Cure.
