      I love the colors of these but they only last a day without chipping. I guess they're worth it for the price though

            I have purchased many different brands of so-called DIY gel polishes and am normally disappointed. I saw this display in ULTA and for the price thought "why not"? So, I brought it home and it went on easily and stayed on for one week at which point, a couple of fingers chipped. I just touched them up and the polish was on for two weeks!! Since then, I have purchased more colors!!
