    Comments about Sally Hansen Salon Gel Polish Starter Kit:

    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.

      Comments about Sally Hansen Salon Gel Polish Starter Kit:

      These reviews are simply not accurate.

      I love gel nails but this kit does NOT perform! First of all dry time is so long. Probably 20-30 minutes to the touch and 90 minutes for pressure, so I do them right before bed or watching a movie.

      The directions say one minute per coat step ( there are 3: one base, color, then top coat). I think the light cuts off around 45-50 minutes so I have to press it twice. When you are done the nails feel gummy, as if the layers have not chemically sealed. Normally the beautiful thing about gel nails is the no smudge worries but this is awful.

      The only pro is that this does last 10-14 days without a single chip even with dog washing or dish washing. It's not a full month like my other gel nails, but I usually get bored of the nail design after 2 weeks anyways. If I had to do it again I would probably try a gel like top coat because the process is unbearable!

          I bought this as an alternative to salon visits. While the salon results are better, I feel like this gives a really good result for the money. I have used it with the included polish (which was quite easy to remove) and another brand of gel polish.

          The light worked well for both brands although I did run it through 2 cycles with the other brand. The mani lasted as long as I would have expected - about 10 days - in both cases.

                The kit works well. I just wish the bottles of gel were larger and that the kit provided more than one color gel.
