I took the plunge and bought this after my nail salon went up in price but down in quality. I got feed up and figured I'd be happier doing it myself. I'm glad I invested in this set. It's tricky to get it right at first, my first attempt was not fabulous, but my second attempt was great. Make sure you follow the directions exactly, use thin layers and be sure your top coat has a nice even coating. You can tell if you coated the nail evenly if when you cure it under the light the whole nail glows blueish white. I didn't do this a couple of times and when I went to wipe the tackiness off the nail it took some color off as well. If you take your time, follow the directions and do thin even coats you will be golden. They don't last as long as the salon manicures, so far it's been 1 1/2 - 2 weeks without chipping for my manicures, but I usually want to change the color by then so it's not an issue for me. If you want to save month on salon visits and don't mind investing some time to do your own nails I would recommend this kit. Plus red carpet has lots of great color choices. The picture is my first attempt at a bright matte color as opposed to the shimmers I've used up till now.
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 was given this as a gift in 2011. It's 2023 and this thing still WORKS just like it did 12 years ago!
I thought I could not wear nail polish. No matter what I did, regular manicures would immediately chip like crazy, even if I went through the trouble of a base coat, top coat, and multiple color coats. My nails would chip halfway off when I washed my hair! I'm not incredibly hard on nails, and my natural nails are not that long. I just wanted to be able to do things around the house and keep a manicure looking nice for more than one day.
I received this set as a gift in December, and after the first use I am Team Gel Manicures FOREVER. I gathered up all my other polishes and donated them - buh bye!
You may want to do some research on how best to apply nail polish before using this set to get the thinnest, smoothest layers possible. Thin layers are the key to success with LED gel polish, I can't emphasize this enough. Also, your layers will feel sticky until after the top coat goes on and you do the final wipe after curing the top coat. Trust the process and don't touch your sticky nails like I did! That stickiness is needed for the multiple layers to attach to one another and form a single hard gel coating at the end. They'll turn super hard and shiny, and that shine really lasts.
After one week, I have only a single tiny chip from doing something dumb when opening a box. I'm a lot more confident about having painted nails with this system, because they don't look ragged and unkempt after one day. I look forward to trying more colors.
Love it wears great
Listen. I'm picky when it comes to my nails. I HATE when I get gel and it peels off within the next day or two. Plus I work a lot with my hands and I'm rough on my nails. I've had this polish for a week now and it's showing no signs of peeling or chipping as it would if I had it done at the salon. Very cute colors and convenient kit. I got a very nice manicure on my first try and I'll keep trying to get better. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
I've always done my own nails but was always disappointed that they would peel/chip in a day or two, where not as thick/protective as salon nails, took way to long to dry, and didn't hold shape as well as a salon job.
Finally bit the bullet and bought this and LOVE it. Super easy to apply, dried super fast, and look stunning. Admittedly I have only done clear, because I need to practice my technique before adding color, but I'm already loving my new nails.
