Comments about Sally Hansen Salon Gel Polish Starter Kit:

This product was better than i expected! As long as you follow the directions it works greats and has potential to last multiple weeks! The only reason i took the polish off was because the pink started turning a yellowish tint and i would say that's the only reason im giving it four stars instead of five. But you can definitely use this product with other gel colors and even regular polish. Ive used it multiple times by adding a regular polish ontop for a color change and later on putting an extra gel top coat on or just using another brand color gel polish instead, as long as its an LED light gel it will work! Also for all the reviews saying it wouldnt dry, it does you just HAVE to remove the sticky layer after, thats all! Make sure you rough up your nails before applying and youll be good! Ill continue to use the light provided even when my polished run out!

    Easy to apply but gel lifts the very next day. Doesn't matter how thin the coats you apply are the gel comes right off

        The application went on good. I only found the remover had difficulty removing a salon gel polish. Once removed (had to use 1/2 the bottle of remove), the polish went on well.

        This product is actually good! The end result is super shiny gel nails. It does indeed last 10-14 days if you don't pick at it.

        Comments about Sally Hansen Salon Gel Polish Starter Kit:

        I go to the nail salon every 2 weeks religiously to get a manicure with the shellac polish. I have been doing it for years and have probably spent upwards of thousands of dollars. But purchasing the starter kit and some extra polishes, it's paid for itself in to visits. I do with there was a wider variety of colors, but I'm pretty simple myself and don't stray from the classic neutrals or reds very much. I love this product and I'm so happy with the results. At home pampering time is so much better then having to wait weeks for an appointment, and being on someone else's time. I can take as long or go as quickly as I want.

          I was ready to return this product but then I realized I was skipping the last step. The lamp is just like what's at the salon just smaller. Everything felt like it set except it was sticky soooo do NOT forget to wipe your nails w/ isopronol or the alcohol wipes (that comes in the kit) It literally dried in TWO seconds. I was amazed!!! If this product isn't working for you basically you are not following instructions.

            Comments about Sally Hansen Salon Gel Polish Starter Kit:

            This is a wonderful kit!! I purchased it back in December and haven't been to a salon since. The kit pays for itself in only one use, it's incredible. I know the kit says that it's up to only a couple weeks wear, but I've had them last for up to 2 months at a time - and the only reason I didn't keep them on is because I got bored with the colour and changed it! Here are some of the troubleshooting tips I've discovered through months of my own use:
            - If the gel is peeling or tearing, you most likely used too thick of coats and the gel could not properly cure.
            - If the gel is chipping, you most likely didn't prep your nails well enough.
            - If the gel is sticky at the end of the process, you didn't use the cleansing pads as instructed.

            PRO TIP: instead of buying the cleansing pad refills, you can just buy a bottle of isopropyl alcohol, much cheaper!

              This set is awesome! I seriously don't know how it could get a bad review. I quickly did my hands and feet in the 40 minutes my baby was napping. Even though I didn't take my time they turned out amazing. I'm very hard on my nails being a new mom, but even after a few days they still look perfect. No chipping, peeling or lifting. I'm seriously so happy with this purchase!

              Comments about Sally Hansen Salon Gel Polish Starter Kit:

              I got this pretty much when it first came out, needing a long-lasting manicure for a trip to Cali. To my disappointment I had chips literally a day later, and I didn't do anything rough with them!. Over time I discovered a few tips and tricks to make them last longer. Make sure to cover the end/tip of your nail with the gel coating. I started leaving a little bit of room near my cuticle, so that I could get some of the gel on my nail there and not just have the gel reach the end of the strip, or they'd chip near the cuticle. I also used two thin layers of the gel, which greatly added to the manicure time. :( I would also reapply the gel mid-week; necessary to make them not chip. Unfortunately these steps made it ever harder to soak the strips off. Very unhappy about how time consuming it is. Also, sometimes the strips are very thick and dried out, which means they don't stick well before the gel. A big miss for Sally Hansen. I much prefer the Real Nail Polish Strips. They come in more designs, are easier to apply, come off easier, take much less time to apply, and really last longer.
