Comments about Sally Hansen Salon Insta-Gel Strips Starter Kit:

This is the WORST gel polish kit I have ever purchased in my existence. The led lamp is the most time consuming product that has ever been produced. The gel polish barely hardens with the lamp. The minute water comes into contact with the gel polish it removes on it own. The kit itself is also not worth the money. It is quite peculiar as to why it is priced so high when the quality of the kit should be valued at zero. Thus, to anyone who is interested in this kit, I guarantee you that it is useless and a waste of money. I encourage you ladies to pay for an actual gel manicure because it actually does last more than 2 weeks and it does not wear off.

BOTTOM LINE: DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. IT IS A WASTE OF MONEY AND THE GEL COMES OFF THE NEXT DAY!

    Comments about Sally Hansen Salon Insta-Gel Strips Starter Kit:

    While it takes a time or two to get used to applying the strips, this is a far easier regiment to pack. They do actually survive 2 weeks even with dish washing, yard work and generally moderate wear.

    Once I got the method down for applying the color strips, it's been easy sailing ever since…never going back to the salon or packing bottles of polish!

    Comments about Sally Hansen Salon Insta-Gel Strips Starter Kit:

    I am a nail polish addict, but I found this one sale so i thought i would try it. I wasn't impressed with the Shell We Dance color because it's basically a hazy looking top coat but not a color. I have long nails and two kids so I'm constantly using my hands and i have to say the gel strips have lasted me a week! i had trouble finding strips that fit my nails because i have wide nail beds and it took me an hour to apply them, but the fact they are instantly dry is amazing when you spend four times a week waiting on your polish to dry!

        Terrible product. I followed the instructions meticulously, i.e. cleaning and buffing my nails before applying the strips. Some failed to stick to my nails but I figured maybe once I applied the gel and cured them, the strips would adhere. NOPE. 8 hours after finishing, half of my nails are chipped or are lifting on the edges.

                The gel strips look great. I've received many compliments. The only problem is that the single nail UV light takes way too long to dry all the nails one-by-one, however, I knew that when buying it.

                The product looks cheap and it would actually be cheaper to enjoy a gel manicure at the salon. It looked like I had stickers on my nails and as a business woman, it didn't come off as very professional.

                    Comments about Sally Hansen Salon Insta-Gel Strips Starter Kit:

                    I will admit that this is a little time consuming but once you figure this out it goes pretty quick. I use my hands a lot at work and it is difficult to keep polish on my nails for more than a day. I kept seeing adds for the gel polish so I figured I would just go on ahead and get one of the kits to try out. I have to say I am impressed. I got a full 7 days before any chipping or peeling occurred. Gel polish for me it is from now on! Ha!
