    I sat down with Beth Albrecht to chat about Poly polish, TEN's newest product to turn any nail polish or acrylic paint into gel polish. The mixing ratios are figured out for you so you just have to be the creative artist you already are. I also purchased some of those really cool Derwent Inktense pencils to add to my nail art arsenal. Stay tuned for upcoming photos.
