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.

Save your money and don't buy this. It doesn't keep the red carpet tips on even with the LED glue it's a very big waste of money and huge disappointment. Save your money and get a different product.

I dislike going to salons so this made my life so much easier! Directions that come with kit are very easy to follow.
Kodie from Dallas, TX
It was my first time ever doing gel nails on myself and it was so easy to use. Just follow the instructions and it turns out great, just like if I got them done at a salon!

Great beginner kit. Light is on the smaller side, really only 4 fingers fit at a time. Followed instructions and used all primers and top coats it comes with. I did order my own opi gel nail colors. But manicure and pedicure look great! Very happy.

Honestly I was skeptical because of some of the not so great reviews but I gave it a try anyway. After reading the directions and doing exactly as it says it worked perfectly! Honestly anyone saying it doesn't work didn't read the directions. There is a tacky sticky layer on top and you wipe that off after that's how gel is, that doesn't mean it's not working. So far no polish has chipped or come off.

okay so i've used it once and i love it! the manicure lasted 7 days before it started lifting from the whites of my nails. If you reapply the top coat once a week I think it would last a very long time. though it did weaken my nails because i peeled it off( don't do that!! ) i'm giving my nails a break for a little bit and then i'll try a different color!

ive only used once n i def need practice! very thin layers! n i cure 60 secs each coat.

I use to get my nails done in the salon all the time, but once I found this I wanted to try it and it's definitely worth it!! I watched YouTube tutorials on it and that definitely helped, the polish stays on and holds up the same amount of time as when I got my nails done in the salon. love it!
Bonnie from Boston, MA
This is the best kit! I recently stopped getting my nails done due to it costing so much money. I decided to try this out since it seemed like the best starter kit for the value & I'm so impressed! As long as you follow the instructions it's fool proof, anyone saying the dryer doesn't work etc isn't following instructions. My nails look so good for being done at home!
Kerry from Virginia
I tried this for the first time, and it took me about an hour. I expected that since it was my first time. The kit includes everything you need for a home gel manicure. Do light coats and follow the instructions. I promise ot works!!
ANNE from Vancouver, WA
After two hours, I finally gave up on the dryer. This product is, honestly, a total waste of money. I'm very disappointed 😞

Easy to follow instructions tried a mani pedi this afternoon. The application went well. Would recommend a steady hand for Application and an hour of your time. Results look great. Can't wait to explore different polishes
Barb from La Habra, Ca
I WORKED for this manufacturer and participated in testing of many of the polishes. I won't use any other products even after being laid off.

I used to go to the salon for mani/pedi, due the pandemic the price inflation of pretty much everything has affecting me. I rather to save $ and buy more food.
I'm an anxious person that lacks patience and coordination on my left side.
So I finally decided to invest in my own tools to do my own nails. Encouraged by my siblings that are really good doing hair, makeup, nails by themselves, gave me the courage to try by myself.
I bought this beginner set in Ulta, followed the instructions that reinforced what my siblings told me.
I feel extremely happy with the results and with this gel set of tools.
I was able to concentrate enough and to be patient with myself and the results were fantastic.
I do recommend this product to beginners even with the lamp that only fits 4 fingers, I had to do the thumb separately but it was a no big deal to me.
Now I am enjoying doing my manicure, relaxing at the same time and saving $. 👏🏻🤗
I will try the pedicure next time🤔

I'm not sure why this kit has poor reviews, likely user error?? I've had this kit for almost 4 years and I love it. However, when I first started using it I wasn't crazy about it because I was inexperienced at applying gel polish! Now I've had years of practice and my nails always come out looking perfect. I even receive comments from the nail techs when I have pedicures done at the salon! I use my hands A LOT (gardening, washing dishes, cleaning, sewing) and I'm always impressed at the durability and longevity of the gel polish. I only end up removing because my nails grow out long before the gel chips/lifts, or I get bored with the color (I'm going on week 3 of my current mani and they still look good!) The kit also works well with other brands of gel polish, my faves are ASP, Finger Paints & Geláze.
My best advice; THIN COATS! And always ALWAYS cap the free edge. I've also been experimenting with applying an additional top coat and sealing the free edge again after about a week. So far this has helped my mani last even longer!
Seriously, BUY THIS KIT!
Danielle from NC
I just want to say that I was very impressed with this kit. I have always tried to find salon quality products without having to go to the salon, and this is it! I had one chip after like 3 weeks almost. in my opinion, this is way better than the dips even. the process and removal just overall is so easy and my nails look healthiest with this method too. definitely sticking to it.
Maria from Salem, OR
I carefully follow the instruction, but my nails are sticky after the whole process. Next day they are not sticky, but the polish starts peeling up in several days, never stays 3 weeks as promised. I would not recommend this kit.
bri from mass
this is my first gel polish kit i've purchased and i honestly love it! i'm only giving it 4/5 stars though because some of the polishes in the kit have a bad smell and is a little difficult to work with but over time i'll improve !
Angel from Nashville
terrible product won't dry stayed gummy peels right off waste of time and money
Megan P from New Jersey
I can't say enough good things about this kit. I'll start by saying I'm HORRIBLE at most beauty related things: manicures, applying makeup, hair, etc. But I really wanted to give this a shot because the thought of being able to get a long lasting, beautiful mani at home was appealing to me. I followed the steps in the provided instructions carefully, and ended up with an absolutely beautiful manicure! By my second try, I had a full 3 weeks of shiny, gorgeous nails. I'm so happy that I invested in this kit, and am excited to purchase several more colors so I can continue to do my own gel manis at home!
lisa from wisconsin
I use this at home for myself
Mia from Mississippi
The first few times I tried painting my nails, I hated it. I kept trying to get the layers of polish super thin, but it just kept peeling off in a couple days. I finally decided that since I couldn't get the layers thin enough I should cure my nails for double the time.
That finally worked and now my manicure lasts for 2 weeks before I have to remove it. If you can play around with it and get the layers super thin, you probably won't have to cure as long. I'm just no good at thin layers so I make up for it with curing time.
Cscotty from Cleveland
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!
Margot from Southern California
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.
