Birchbox Breakdown

With their flawless finishes and chip-free staying power, gel manicures have taken the salon world by storm. But there’s no denying that this trend has a few shortcomings—namely, damaged nails and a premium price tag. Thankfully, we now have another option: Deborah Lippmann’s brand new Gel Lab manicure set. This DIY gel mani kit offers the same high-gloss perfection without any downside.

How to Use

First, apply one coat of Coat Of Arms base coat. Next, apply a colored nail polish of your choice, then finish with a coat of the Shining Armor. Wait one minute between each coat.

What a waste!

This works no better than a regular base and top coat. In fact, I think my Sally Hansen works better than this! I've tried high end polishes as well as cheap ones. This stuff does not work!

Shiny and Long-Lasting
Purchased

After reading the awful article in the NY Times about nail salons, I decided to try and paint my own nails regularly. My nails look almost professional with this base and top coat. You don't need much and it truly extends the life of your manicure. The top coat also makes your nails look shiny and fresh. I noticed that the top coat does come off when I'm cleaning a lot, but I simply reapply. Lastly, this duo dries quickly which is a godsend for someone (like me!) who always messes up the paint soon after application. A bit pricey but totally worth it and the bottles will last a long time!

great stuff

I'm not sure if those who have trouble with this product aren't using it correctly, but I used it with the cheapest color I could find at the drug store, and five days later, it was still perfect. The only reason I took it off was to change colors. I even scrubbed a cast iron grill with not a chip. This stuff is well worth the price.

By far the best!

Super shine and lastibility. It stays shinny. You should get a good week out of this! I really like this product. I use it with my quality lacquers.

polish peels off next day

Do not waste your money on this product. I've used it a few times and have the same bad results.

I paint my nails at night, then by the time I'm done preparing/cleaning breakfast it's chipped off in big sheets! Not even small chips that you can deal with--1/4 nail sized sheets.
