I had tried every thing on earth looking for a manicure that lasted more than 4 days, but hadn't found it. Then I got a gel manicure at a salon and it lasted almost 2 weeks. So I'm thinking obviously gel is the way to go for me. Then I saw this DIY set on Birchbox and decided to try it myself. It is great! My daughter comes over every couple of weeks for "nail time" with me and there is enough of all the products for both of us. They make it really easy to get set up for doing the manicure and taking it off too. It's time consuming, but lasts so long that I find I get tired of the color before I get my first chip. AND bonus - my nails don't break. I even went camping and came home with dirt under my nails, but no chips or breaks!
In addition I love the Lomasi products because they are free from formadehyde and toluene and Made In the USA! The only downside is Birchbox needs to carry more of the colors!
I will admit that I am not great at painting my own nails so I always got them done professionally. I splurged on this in an effort to save money in the long run. This product is awesome. I have no issues with the polish peeling off, it lasts almost two weeks. The instructions are very easy to follow. It took me a bit of time at first, but no longer than it would have had I gotten them done at a salon. You can order several polish colors, which is great. I hesitated to buy this but am very glad that I did.4
I've had this light kit for about 2 months but have only used it three times. The light now only flickers on and off. When I could use it, it was great however i'm dead in the water for any future use until I can get some help or replacement parts.2
My husband got this for me for my birthday. I love the fact I can do my nails in the comfort of my own home and not pay an outrageous amount of money to get my nails done5
I was hesitant about getting a gel nail kit, but this kit is very easy to use. I love the color that came with it and it is not a long process. Will def be buying more nail polishes for this kit.5
I am really not thrilled with this product. I was SO excited to receive this but it did not live up to my expectations. I applied three different times (following the directions EXACTLY), hoping that each time would be better. Within a few days, the gel was cracking and peeling off just like regular nail polish.
I will be getting rid of mine and sticking to my Deborah Lipmann polish.
