To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I think I really like these gel polishes. I've used each color in the nude set and they all seem to do well. They dry in 30 seconds like they are supposed to. The 2 lighter colors had the sticky film after they cured and I needed to wipe with alcohol. The darker colors didn't. I have attached pictures. I used one color for each nail. Showing the different lighting.
First gel color purchase. Better than what I expected, way better than what some of these salons are doing. I do a lot of work with my hands and they still look good after a week. It took 3 coats to get the solid color. Read a great tip about letting your nails sit under the light 2x instead of 120 sec or 180 secs alone. (Pictures are by the coat then final product) Good luck!
I do my own gel manis. I use the authentic gelish foundation and top coa. This product has a consistency similr to the opi brand. My only criticism is that the brush is wide, making it more difficult to apply the product in thin layers. Despite this I would buy it again. You get four great colors for what you pay for one bottle at regular beauty stores. In the picture I used the second color from left to right.
The polish looks fantastic and cures very quickly under a UV lamp. I love that the polish comes with alcohol wipes and a file and stick thingy because it certainly helps. If you don't wipe your nails with the alcohol prior to painting, the polish will peel after a couple days. The good thing is that it doesn't damage your nails when it peels off. To make sure it doesn't peel, I like to paint a layer of regular clear coat nail polish just to really seal it. For the price, it's a wonderful product.
