          Comments about Sally Hansen Salon Gel Polish Starter Kit:

          The polish itself looks great, right after it's done. It lasted about two or three days before it began to chip. On the third day, one nail's polish came completely off. By the fifth day, all the polish was off except for my thumbs. So it's great, but only for about two days. I guess that's still in line with what it says it will last for, since they put "up to two weeks" on the box. Nothing even close to two weeks though lol

          Comments about Sally Hansen Salon Gel Polish Starter Kit:

          I originally bought this product because I didn't want to pay the big bucks at the salon, but after I used it once I wish I had ended up at the salon. The box promised that the polish would last for up to 14 days, but after four days the nail polish peeled completely off of two fingers. By day five, I found myself easily peeling off the polish on the other nails. I am definitely returning this and sticking to either the salon or my at home manicure with normal lacquer.

          Comments about Sally Hansen Salon Gel Polish Starter Kit:

          I use this for both fingers and toes. Its easy to use but not so easy to remove. So, I just add another color on top of the old. The drying time is fabulous. I don't like the color polish (step 2)that is included in the kit, as it makes your nails look yellow.

          Comments about Sally Hansen Salon Gel Polish Starter Kit:

          I think the problem that I had was more with the included light than the polishes. I used the light with a different brand of gel polish, and a friend used the Sally Hansen polish with the other brand's light. Within a couple of days, my polish had peeled completely off. Her's lasted a little longer using the different light that timed for 45 seconds instead of 30. I ended up returning the kit because I would rather stick with the brand that I know works for me at this point, at least where the light is concerned.

          THIS PRODUCT IS A MUST HAVE IF YOU HAVE NAILS ON YOUR FINGERS!!!!!

          I never cared for Sally Hansen products because I didn't think they were the best as far as nail products go. But, after wanted to try this "Gel nail" trend and finding out if was $30 + tip...um no thank you:).

          I purchased this kit, did my nails and toes and it ALREADY paid for itself!

          I must say, when I paint my nails with normal polish it is chipped by the time I am in bed that same day dishes, shower/ heat moisture, computer typing at work, washing my dog, the list can go on. This is **only my second day** and I'm loving it because it is strong, shinny, super nice and not coming off without a fight and acetone! Yay!

          ***I will say: all the awesome reviews wont make sence if you don't follow each...and every step to the tee. Do file the top of your nails (although we like them strong and shinny) for this to work. Do apply THIN coats (not streaky, just thin) and do apply two thin coats (which will equal 1 thick coat, no they don't want you to buy more product faster lol which I learned) And don't get any on your edges or cuticle- just paint slowly and take your time youll be fine!

          Also, I left each session to dry twice (30seconds then another 30 seconds) on both hand and feet.
          Feet are super easy since all 5 fit at once also! :) And as far as drying the 4 fingers then the thumb...I did that but on the second 30 second (since I cured them twice) I put all 5 fingers at once.

          I really hope my novel helps someone enjoy this product!! xoxo
