I still think the main problem was the SPI activator in the Global basecoat.
Ok, no matter what company activator he used, as long as it was a "single stage or clear coat activator" will always make the base better and there is ONLY one thing an activator can cause to go wrong and its not this, so why did the activator cause the problem?
