IP work time?

My IP seems very dry with a noticeably less work time then FP II. Is this normal?

That is the case for me, but with menzerna weather can mess up things. Is the product old by chance? Shook it long enough?

Is the weather too humid?

Zac,

Try SIP, it's a much better product. I find the IP has little cut and is very dusty. I do think that many Menzerna polishes tend to act up when the weather isn't perfect, as in your case it was humid. I have started using the new Meg's polishes more and more, and find they give me better results, with a much shorter work time as well.

Do you mean Megs 105/205 or the consumer line (Ult Compound, etc)?

That humidity will do weird things with Menz. products.

SIP is as stated above a much better product. So is 105.
