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.

Comments about Sally Hansen Salon Gel Polish Starter Kit:

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

      Comments about Sally Hansen Salon Gel Polish Starter Kit:

      I love gel manicures because they last up to 2 weeks. I found this kit for $69 and thought I'd give it a try. After all, it pays for itself in 2 visits to a nail salon.
      It takes a lot of skill to apply this polish. Unlike regular nail polish if you get any on your skin around your nails you can just scrub it off in the shower. If that happens with gel nail polish then the whole layer comes off.
      Also, I found that the polish only lasted a week which defeats the purpose. I purchased this kit so that I wouldn't have to do my nails every week but I ended up doing them every week because it starts to peel after only a few days.
      Lastly, the directions tell you place your nails under the lamp for 30 seconds for each coat. This is not enough time for it to dry. I had to let each coat dry under the lamp for about 5 minutes.

        Very easy to use. Just follow the instructions, done. I do double coats, it seems to last a lot longer.

            I won't use it every time because I like changing colors more often....but it will be great for vacations or when I know I won't have time for polish changes. If you take your time and do it right it works just like it should. 2 weeks, no chips, super shiny. The kit costs slightly more than one gel manicure at a salon so I'd call it a good deal.

              Comments about Sally Hansen Salon Gel Polish Starter Kit:

              I purchased this product after having given away my old LED get polish set, in hopes that I had found an affordable at home gel manicure option. Using the product was as easy as it sounds, and the pink color was beautiful at first. However, after about days of wear, the color faded to a bland yellowish nude, with some spots of pink. Needless to say, I was disappointed.
