What is the difference in Core and Speed systems set times?


Finding the perfect consistency depends on how much liquid-to-powder is mixed. Getting a controlled application can prevent the product from running or drying too quickly. If there is too much liquid, press the back of the brush onto the paper towel for 1 second to remove any extra liquid. The pearl should not have any dry powder around the edges before application. If it’s too wet, the product will stick to the brush while pressing it into place. You should be able to press the product perfectly into place without the product sticking to the brush, running into the cuticles, or drying before bonding to the natural nail.

Acrylic Setting Times

Core (Medium to Fast)

1:30 minutes before there is no movement

4:30 before the product can be filed


Speed (Fast)

1:00 minute before there is no movement

4:00 minutes before the product can be filed

What is the mix ratio for mixing glitter into acrylic?


The perfect mix ratio is 3:1. 3 parts Speed Clear to 1 part glitter. This is going to give you the best workability. Use a 1/4 oz(7g) jar and fill the Speed Clear just under the neck. Then, fill the rest of the jar with glitters of your choice. Its nice to choose colors that will work well together. For example, Jet Black, Rock Star, and Silver are a perfect combination for stunning black free edge.
