I recently got engaged and in an effort to start saving $$ for the wedding and knowing my nails would be center attention from people wanting to see the ring, I purchased this at home gel nails starter kit to avoid going to the salon every 2 weeks. While I can do a pretty good mani/pedi, I am an amateur and was a bit intimidated doing my own gel mani for the first time. The whole process (although a bit time-consuming) was actually pretty easy. The detailed instructions are very helpful and the products that come in the kit are easy to use and seem to be good quality. I've done two manicures now and they've lasted me a whole two weeks (and could have lasted longer), while I've gotten gel manis at a salon before and they have sometimes only lasted 1 week or less. My only very minor complaints are that the power cord is kinda short for the light and it would also have been nice to have a digital countdown timer on the top of the light. That being said, the light is auto-timed to 45 seconds, so it shuts off automatically when it's done, which is nice. Overall I am very pleased with this kit, the results, and the money I am able to save by doing a salon-quality manicure at home.
I was really hoping to get good use out of this product as I like to keep my nails polished all the time. It's easy to use and dries quickly but my issue is with long lasting. I bought two separate nail polishes and tried the one included in the box. All three chipped within a few days. I followed every single direction...applied it thin, covered the tip of my nails and curated the nails for the exact fine required. I'm not sure I could have done any more but they all chipped within a few days. One of the nail polishes I got not only chipped but changed colors. Unfortunately this has to go back. I am jealous of those girls that found no issue with it as I was hoping to use this to replace getting my nails done at the salon.

I picked up a kit. I read all the instructions and followed each step.
The first time I did one I think I didn't ensure my nails were really smooth after filing. A few days after the first one I went to file what felt like a rough ridge and that broke the top coat up to where the polish was able to be peeled off my nail.
The second time I really cleaned and filed my nails. Followed all instructions to a T, and it lasted about a full week- but that's fine for me. I like to change the colors about that often anyway. The shine does last and the look is as if you went into the salon.
I also do not work in any chemicals, and I wear gloves in my line of work.
I think it's way better than a regular at home mani bc you get at least one full week before chipping COULD start IF at all.
Depends on how you look at it and how long you hope it to last.
Try it out!

I have owned and used this kit since 2012. I love it and it has paid for itself many times over. I do try to get a salon manicure once or twice a year because I enjoy the pampering and nail and cuticle cleanup that I can't do as well myself ... but no one shapes my nails as nicely as I do.
I like that this LED light is timed at 45 seconds so I'm sure to get the proper curing time for other polishes, like OPI.
I take this kit traveling for convenience. I forgot it once and had to get a manicure at a strange salon and at a time when they could fit me in. Hubby reminded me to pack my kit on our next trip.
My once beautiful nails were destroyed after cancer treatment. Gel manicures have been their salvation — long and strong again, often going 4 weeks between manicures (when I'm wearing clear color) that I can do on my own schedule.
Krystin from Montana
This product produces a beautiful manicure. After about 5-6 days it does start to peel. I am fine with that as I usually do my nails each weekend anyway. The packaging claims that the manicure lasts up to 21 days but I have found that it is closer only to 7 days. At least my manicure looks nice for the week!

My nails are short and thin, this is a good investment! They are actually growing now!
Jane from Mn
This product is fabulous. I got the same result as going to the salon. Very happy with the purchase.
Alena from San Francisco CA
I absolutely love this kit. I've been using it for years now and I just get better over time. The gel lasts a little less than 2 weeks. I love the red the kit comes with. I've purchased it many times since the kit. My only complaint is that the bottle colors and the polish colors are often sooo different. I only buy the polish colors in store to see what the color actually looks like. Other than that I've been so happy and highly recommend this!
I read other reviews and I'm confused why they are saying it's sticky. I've never experienced that, I think they aren't following the instructions!
CoffeeGirl325 from North Carolina
I am completely sold on this line! With right at eight years of experience using this product, I can say without a doubt, it is the best I have found for at home use. I highly recommend this line! I have spent lots of money paying to get my nails done, now I do not have to anymore! I do have one more thing to tell you...if you work with your hands, in any kind of chemicals, or have your hands in water almost 24/7, you will not like this, unless you use gloves. Chemicals can break down the adhesive in a short amount of time, therefore making the wear time much shorter than the two weeks I had told you about. I am a pharmacy technician and work with my hands a lot, I have had no trouble whatsoever keeping this gel polish line on. My sister however, it did not work so well for her. She is really rough on her hands (her words not mine) and refuses to use gloves (again her words not mine) when cleaning, so it wasn't a good fit for her. I'm a glove girl when it comes to cleaning, so that is just something to think about before you make your decision about your purchase of this product. I feel like anyone who loves to have their nails done and it look professional, this is definitely the ticket! The color I have on in my pictures below, is a discontinued color. It is the last of it..."CRY"!

Ive sat under this light for 45 min and its still tacky!
Kathleen from California
I bought this when Covid started. I work in a warehouse, and my nails need protection. I don't like the nail polish it came with, but other colors from the same brand turned out better. The color lasts about two weeks, but my nails feel very raw when I remove them.
Olivia from St. Louis
I bought this on a whim after researching the prices of gel manicures at the salons in my area and being too impatient to wait for an appointment. It seems kind of pricey at first, but will pay for itself after a few applications and it comes with literally everything you will need - including files, lint free wipes, cuticle sticks, cuticle oil, and polish remover. I found the instructions to be very user friendly and the results I got are pretty good for my first time. Once I get better at painting my own nails I feel as if my results will be pretty close to salon quality. The entire experience took a little under an hour, I just watched a TV show while I did it. It hasn't been long enough to see how long they will last but so far I'm happy with my purchase. Make sure you wipe the nails at the end or they will continue to be tacky!
Mel from Phoenix AZ
Tried with UV light to make nails dry for an hour and they were still tacky. Really wanted to love this but did not work.
Jen K from ohio
This is the only polish I use now. I'm a bartender, so my hands get pretty beat up at work and my manicure always lasts close to three weeks. You must finish with rubbing alcohol, just like they do in the salon, or nails will always be sticky.
Patty from Manhattan
I love this product! For my first time it was a little tricky I ended up doing all five fingers at once and it ended up being a mess 😅 and it's hard to add all 5 fingers under the light (it is kinda small). So the 2nd time I did my thumb , then two fingers at a time and they look perfect and beautiful, it's not all time consuming it was relaxing just pampering yourself and watching a show as you do this !
Smorey from Nj
Maybe it's user error, but I've tried this kit multiple times and the top coat NEVER dries! Not worth it!
Original Me from Middle of California
I've been living under a rock!! I love this kit. My nails looks so good. For those saying the polish stays sticky: I almost made the same mistake. I didn't realize I had to wipe the nail with the alcohol. The alcohol removes the stickiness and reveals the finished product. Shiny beautiful nails

I love it this was my first time to do my own Gel Nails and I think it was great just like going to a salon.
Paige from Idaho
Never even dried.
Loveallthingsbeauty from Mobile, AL
Works well but it is very small for the price. It's child size
Shawna from ILLINOIS
Absolutely love how great it is for traveling. Perfect for beginners!
Cin from Hutto tx
I really like how they come out on my toes it last super long and they look great! on my hands not sure why they start peeling a day after.
Newbie from Asheville, NC
I've had this set for year now and am very pleased with it! If you follow the instructions, the process takes about an hour. This is far less time than it takes to go to the salon and have them done. I have very long nails and have not had any problems with the polish drying. It is definitely worth the money!
Works! from Alabama
This actually worked! My nails dried instantly after using the UV light (was worried since some said it didn't, but I followed the directions and cured them each step that was required, maybe that makes a difference). No chipping yet, it's been about 4 days.
Wiwi from Bakersfield, Ca
love it has everything to do a manicure the price is great no complaints its excellent more item than i expected
Bridgett from Tampa, FL
I bought this product to avoid having to go out to the nail salon in these uncertain times. The kit had everything you need to create a salon quality manicure without too much effort. I've been wearing the polish for a week now and not a single chip. The only con is that you have to cure your thumb separately since all 5 fingers don't fit in the light.
Britt from Cincinnati oh
I didn't like the sticky polish in this. IT NEVER DRIED
