      I really like the ease of application with the brush. This gel base coat works better than the Sally's name brand I was using, and it was a little less expensive.

        Bought this because I liked a color from this gel nail line. However, I found it gloppy and difficult to control or form a smooth, uniform coat with. I returned it.

            Had my gel polish on for 2 weeks and it still hadn't chipped. Had to take it off though because my nails were growing out and started getting a gap at the bottom .

                      I love this line of products. Very easy to use and VERY economical. Love the fact I can change my color at 10 pm without having to go to the salon. Lasts several weeks.

                      I love this product including all red carpet manicure nail polishes. This base coat works extremely well and leaves me with a perfect manicure that last around 2 weeks. My only con to this polish is that the bottle tends to become clumpy after 3-4 uses and I end up throwing it away.

                            Not clear instructions that this is not regular nail polish. Waste of money.

                              "Structure" is the base coat for this UV line of Nail Lacquer. It is very thick and viscous compared to other more expensive brands. It is a little difficult to control to get a smooth finish because of the jelly consistency. You get what you pay for with this base coat, and unfortunately you can't skip this step.
