The top coat is amazing. It is a little bit thick but i was still able to apply a thin coat. It also dries very quickly and lasts for ages. The base coat is very thick and glugy, making it a bit harder to apply a thin coat but still manageable. The base coat didn’t cure under my UV light which was strange because the top coat and all the other colours I have do. Over all they’re good products, it’s just a little annoying to wait for ages for the base coat to dry
The first time I received this set, the base was semi dried and so thick that I couldn’t pull the brush out from the bottle. Thinking it was a one off, I ordered another set, but like the first it too was too thick to use. Aimeili needs to fix this issue, otherwise the polishes are great
im not sure if its because of the primer, but when i apply the base coat, i notice that it pulls away from from my cuticles? i dont think base coat should be doing that (the primer i use is by the same brand as this top and base coat so the products should work well together)
This is my second time trying this product and both times I have been equally disappointed. Out of all the gel base and top coats I've used this is the worst set.
Before even curing there's a problem, it separates as it's applied so there's no such thing a smooth application. You have to apply so much product just for it to stay together on the nail lomg enough to pop in under the light.
Once cured it's sticky and needs to be wiped (this is supposedly a no wipe top coat).
My third problem with this product is how it makes my black gel polishes blue once cured over top.
I regret wasting my money on this a second time, I tried to give a second chance because of all the good reviews but yet again I'm stuck with a crappy product.
After using twice would definitely not recommend this brand . Don't need much apply thin coats in between each cure. I did 2 thin coats, cured for 3 minutes each. The finish is in the middle between a hard shellac but didnt like the plasticy gel like finish. I like that it DOES NOT SHRINK though! Got a bad reaction on cuticle my skin but healed when took off product within a day or two and scabbed over. This product is obviously not for me and had to return what I could. Glad my usual brand HMD is safe for me.
The product was fantastic at first and very easy to use with the Amelie colours i purchased. However, I purchased the base and topcoat about 2 months ago, and I went to use the topcoat and the brush had hardened and the product was essentially no good. Very goopy and difficult to apply. I have been storing it in a cool dark place so I don't know what happened. Overall the product was fine but two months later it is no longer useable. A bit disappointing.
I purchased the Aimeili top coat and base coat bundle. The top coat is okay: you certainly do not require alcohol to wipe off any sticky residue, so it performs as advertised. The shine on the top coat is not as long lasting as the China Glaze Gelaze top coat I previously purchased. The base coat however is another story: do not purchase the Aimeili base coat. It DOES NOT apply evenly. You will notice while applying a thin, even coat on your bare clean nails, that within a few seconds the coat starts to pull away at certain parts of your nail i.e. it does not look like the base coat was evenly applied. It's hard to explain but just imagine painting a perfectly coated nail with base coat, and then within seconds, circular spots start to "dry up" on the nail so that the nail is no longer evenly coated. It's weird and have not experienced this with other brands. So your nail polish will not apply evenly over this base coat, as you can imagine. AVOID THE AIMEILI BASE COAT
The base coat is sticky. Makes it hard to manage while applying other coats. When I used this in combination with gel colours everything peeled. Top coat doesn’t go on smooth. I’m finding better longevity just using the base coat and clear coat rather than any colours
The top coat is very Good. But for the base coat, after dried by the nail lamp, the nail surface is uneven and has some bumps no matter how thin I applied it on my nails. I don’t know it is only because of this bottle, or my application skills, or it is how the product is. Can’t figure it out, does anyone else have the same issue?
This product is super easy to use, however when the topcoat arrived it seemed like the bottle had been opened as the brush bristles are super hard and lots of hard plastic-like looking hardened nail polish kept coming out. It cause my manicure and pedicure to have to be redone as it left brush marks all throughout. If topcoat applied like base cost I’d love it!
