    Salon quality

    I love this lineup of products as it provides long lasting wear and salon quality results at home. It is also much more affordable than getting your nails done! Best if used with a base coat and a topcoat.

    Never going to a salon again!

    A few friends bought me this for my birthday and it’s silly to say but it has changed my life. As a person who is prone to getting chipped or nails broken in the middle, I would often find myself having to go to a salon to get gel nail polish so my nails wouldn’t break further. This gel kit came with everything I needed to do a perfect manicure on myself and save the hefty price tag of a nail salon. Would definitely recommend it to someone who gets their nails done often.

    Nice quality

    Very pretty shades. The polish, if applied correctly, does stay on for up to 2 weeks, which is great. It minimizes the impact on my nails, and saves myself some time. My only complaint is that Sally Hansen does not have a wide range of shades, and therefore it creates slim pickings when deciding shades. I tend to purchase other brands as well due to this, as I like to be a bit more adventurous with my nail colors. In stores, you mainly find the red, purple, pink, and nude shades. I personally think it is a decent investment. The bottles are huge, and last quite some time for the price. I likely will continue to purchase in the future.

    Highly Recommend!

    I found this set met my needs and more! I am not one to go out and spend money on nail salons on a frequent basis. I find it more convenient and cost savvy to do my own nails at home. This set allows me to do gel manicures and pedicures whenever I want for basically no cost! The instructions are easy to follow, and the more you do it, the less you will require to pull them out. I do manicures for friends and family frequently with this set. The materials do not need to be replenished often at all, and a single bottle of gel polish lasts forever! I have also found that the lamp works with other gel polish brands asides from only sally Hansen, so you can experiment with other brands as well when one has a different shade that sally does not. I also found that it works with sally Hansen's nail wraps as well, so I can play around with the fun patterns if I wish to do so. The world is really your oyster with these. I also have found that if you are not working highly with your hands (with food, or construction, or such) your manicure will last forever! I work in an office and maybe switch it up once every 2 weeks. I could not recommend this set enough!

    Great Polish for longterm wear

    I absolutely love this nail polish! I can easily put it on, wear it for two or more weeks and only have to replace because of new nail growth and the missing fresh shine of the top coat. There are only two only possible problems with this nail polish:
    1. if you are not a neat nail painter, your nail polish will not last. You have to be precise with the nail polish and only get it on your nails. If you get it a lot on your skin or cuticle area the nail polish will lift on those areas and will in turn make the nail polish peel off of your nail.
    2. Price. like 20$ bucks for a very small bottle. the only reason i continue to buy it is because i like to think of it this way: you would normally have to redo your nails ever two days (pending you redo them every time you get a chip) and with this nail polish you would only have to redo the because of growth, in turn, making the bottle last approx. the same amount of time.

    Sur moi, ça ne tient pas.

    Je n'ai pas aimé du tout. Dommage, car c'est assez dispendieux. J'ai suivi les étapes à la lettre et je suis aussi technicienne en pose d'ongle résine et poudre donc je m'y connais quand même bien et je sais comment bien préparer un ongle pour que la tenue soit bonne, mais le gel se "peel" tout seul. Par contre, la lampe del va bien. Je l'utilise encore d'ailleurs mais avec une autre marque de vernis gel qui tient 2-3 sem.

    Love it!

    I love this set it has everything you need in the box and I have a few different colours of this brand and I like the quality. It’s long lasting, coats the nail great, easy to apply and you use the lamp to cure your nails. Only bummer is they don’t have a lot of colour options, I’m not sure if it’s just where I’m located or in general but would love to see some fresh/new colours!

    Cheap quality

    This kit sucks and is most definitely not worth the price. It comes with a tiny uv light to set the nail polish, and it sucks!!! It’s made of cheap plastic, and it’s tiny. Also, it comes with tiny tiny sampler sized base and top coat and 1 tiny tiny sampler size of color. Like I said. Sucks. Not worth the price.

    Meh

    I bought this looking for long lasting wear with no chipping. After a few days, the tips of my nails have chipped off. I’m not overly impressed, considering each was 12$. I applied the top coat as well which was another additional $12.

    Not so awesome cheap gel nails. Go to a salon

    This product unfortunately really sucked. I had super high hopes for it. I was so excited to purchase this product, and it just ended up being so yuck. First off, the fumes from this is unlike any gel nails if got before, I thought I was gonna pass out the smell is so strong. Much stronger than a regular nail polish. Secondly, the end result just looks like thick nail polish, the same day I did it, they peeled off. I bugged my nails prepped them good, and they gel still fell off. Now lastly, I was going to try it out for a second time, thought hey maybe I just wasn’t doing something right, I went to plug the cord in and smelled something burning and it was like burning inside of the lamp.. I do not recommend this product.
