Original hybrid nail polish won’t weight down the plate, because it doesn’t need dusting of the nail plate. Removal of original hybrids also doesn’t cause problem because layer on the nail dissolves almost entirely during 3-5 minutes. Products, which only imitate hybrid, require much more work and damage nail plate after one use. So, hybrid manicure cannot be cheap, because then we will get products of lower quality, which won’t even resemble the true hybrid.
