Most Helpful Positive Review It works!
First things first, you MUST use the top coat with polish for it to work 100%. I noticed some bad reviewers weren't using top coat. Second, you MUST allow for the polish to completly dry between coats (I let it dry 10 minutes between coats and do 3-4 coats)Then a final coat of the special topcoat and let it dry THOROUGHLY. I am talking a good two hours. Also it does say you need "natural light" during dry time. Something like a window on a sunny day... That makes a huge difference. I did it last night after dark and used a table lamp to "cure" it and it worked "OK". I have a couple pitting areas where I think my sheets were touching overnight. I just covered the spots with a nail art sticker and another clear coat and you can't even tell. Most days I do this on Saturday morning and it truely does come out perfect if done right. I do notice chipping around day 7 but honestly I work in health care and my hands go through a lot. So color me impressed.
Another thing I haven't seen mentioned in the reviews is that you can use the special gel top coat with REGULAR nail polish also. I had some Sally's Wine Hard as Nails stuff that I loved the color but it would chip literally the next day. I used two coats of the regular wine and the gel top coat and I swear I got sick of it before it wore off! It lasted 8 days before I finally took it off. So that alone is a super bonus aspect to buying this. I was worried I'd never use my other colors again so that's good news.
I think you realy just have to set aside some quality time to this right to get the proper results. If done correctly it will hold up way better than reg. polish alone. All my old top coats are trashed now.
You can not use a base coat with this and make sure your nails are free of anything. File the edges and CAP off the polish and it'll go the distance.
The 14 days of wear slogan is a bit far fetched and I can only assume it's for those who can baby their nails all day. I am not one of them, but hey... I'm happy with 7 days!
Most Helpful Critical Review not 14 days!
I got this as a result of all the reviews i read..i am so dissapointed..its not cheap and not worth it.after 3 days the nail polish chipped of the top and on one nail half of the paint is gone. i attache a pic.Followed the instructions to the tee.i do my own nails and i do the same thing even add a base coat before polish but this time i didn t as per instructions.I have 20 opi nail colors and i can tell you that the apple red holds off way more.I have a toddler and i do a lot with my hands and i was really hoping this gel was it!it wasn t...i ll never buy it again bcoz it is expensive and not worth it,:(

I like this line a lot and this is my favorite color. Think this is my third bottle. Looks good on long or short nails. Works with whatever you are wearing. Doesn't last on me as long as they say but is still more than satisfactory.
Totally different color then expected
Kat from Modesto
Online this looks like a different color then what I received
More pink than peach
Ladyshopsalot from St. Louis? MO
The color is more of a bright/ neon pink than peach. The color strip on the lid/ brush is perfectly peach, but the nail polish is not that color. The brand is great, but I returned because I really wanted peach.
Why didn't I buy this sooner?
AZ Mallqueen from Phoenix, AZ
I have an allergy to methacrylate, the main ingredient in salon acrylic and gel nails. I have tried many nail polishes over the years and no matter how careful I was the polish would chip the next day. I'd given up on polish until I read the reviews and ingredient list for this polish. I bought the color Chiffon and the top coat as an impulse purchase. Holy handbags am I glad! No allergic reaction! After several days of cooking, cleaning, typing for work, my nails still look amazing! No chips! No fading! No wearing off at the fingertips! I just ordered 4 bottles of various colors of this polish. Cheaper than one salon visit and I'm one happy camper.

Looks beautiful when applied.

A little streaky
Nicole from Rochester NY
Very pretty but a little streaky took a few coats
bex from Pennsylvania
i used this product once. it chipped almost immediately, and then my nails peeled off in layers. it was like it dissolved them.
Love my Nails from North Canton, OH
This color is mystifying! It can be purple or blue, just depends on how you move your fingers. I have gotten a lot of compliments on it. Goes on great and dries quick. Color #573 is a must try!
service industry approved.
mads. from ohio
I'm a server/bartender and have never been able to keep nail polish on my nails for more than 3 days. i have tried every brand of polish and top coat there is, i have even tried getting gel manicures and it always last 3 days. i bought this on a whim after having plain nails for years. this lasted for 6 days before it started to chip and needed to be taken off.
I would not buy this color
Whitney from Lebanon PA
I would not buy this color because it looks clear once you put it on even with 2 coats.
There are better options out there
G from Maryland
Application is pretty bad. There are definitely better options out there. It also dents very easily even with step 2 and hard coat
Great gel nail polish. I would buy more of this product!!
RMCS from Birmingham, Alabama
The polish has great color and lasts even during several days of washing hands doing, chores and gobs of hand sanitizer. It still holds its shine.
Don't Waste your Money
chellcoll from Detroit, MI
This polish is horrible, I painted my nails on Sunday morning and by mid-afternoon they were chipped. The polish doesn't go on smoothly and the top coat does not help to set the polish. Very disappointed. I removed the polish the next day and started all over again and got the same results.
Lasts a week
Maria from Pasadena MD
Used with the 101 top coat these nail polishes last me a week!
This top coat smells atrocious and it dents for HOURS after.
This product is a waste of money from Nunya St.
I've used a lot of different brands and kinds of polish, but this is by far the worst smelling polish I have ever used. The fumes that come off of this are abhorrent and sting the eyes, even when applying from a decent distance away.
It also doesn't even work well as a top coat. The base polish was completely dry and did not dent before I put on the top coat. It has been well over an hour since I put on the top coat and it is STILL denting with the lightest tap of my fingernail. I did as thin a coat as possible with this polish, so the coat being too thick to dry is not the issue. This top coat just sucks.
The color polishes from this line are really good, but don't buy this top coat. Just use whatever top coat you usually use instead.
I would buy this product again.
Long Beach from Long Beach, CA
This product works great!
Good top nail coat
Mimi from California
I have used this product a couple of times, so far it keeps the nail color intact for a week. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that the first time I used it I only put one coat on my nails. The second time I used it I put on 2 coats and it kept the color longer.
The quality of this stuff is fantastic. Looks like a salon!
Chlo Bug from Dallas , TX
I will use this when I can't get to the salon! Love the way it looks
Love the Street Flair color!
Dee from Lexington, KY
I love all the gel colors, but Street Flair is a subtle change from the harsh darks of winter, to some lighter colors for spring/summer.
My summer go to!!
Dee from Lexington, KY
Pink Tank is my go to color for my summer pedicures! Love it and have been using for years! Last a long time on your toes.
Camryn from North Carolina
This top coat makes my $2 color polish look like a salon manicure!! Wonderful shine and no bubbles/bumps even with a pretty thick coat.
