This gives my nail polish a great finish. I definitely notice my nail polish lasting longer without chips. It's maybe not as effective as an actual gel manicure, but definitely helps normal manicures.
Although the top coat goes on beautifully and super smooth and shiny, my nails always chip within a few hours ( I do wash my hands often at work though) The base coat also stains my nails yellow..don't know what's up with that
Absolutely worth the investment vs. 45 dollar gel manicures that end up wearing off early for me anyway. The shine is beautiful and it makes my nails feel stronger.
I do my own nails often and the gel lab has been an absolute game changer. It truly extends the life of your mani and makes your nails much shiner. I highly recommend!
If you are OCD about your nails and really want to devote the time and money into doing them right yourself, this is the set to use. You have to be really precise with a brush, and the minute between coats (2 for the last) makes the process definitely go slower. But for your effort, nails don't chip for a week and are virtually dry in 15 minutes!
I was skeptical of this product, I can afford to get my nails done anymore every two weeks so I have been looking for a cheaper solution. All I can say is WOW, the easy way it applies and the fact that you can use existing nail polish you have is awesome. My nails really look professionally done. I have gotten compliments all day today!
When I first received this gel lab set, I was amazed at how well it worked. It made my nails incredibly shiny just like getting gel nails at the salon and kept the polish from chipping nearly as long. Plus it doesn't require an intense removal process like salon gel nails; regular polish remover does the trick. However, after a month or two the top coat got so thick and sticky in the bottle it's almost impossible to use now. The base coat is still great after tons of uses, but I've switched to another top coat.
I finally found it: the nail finish that leaves a professional look. I love it so much that, after buying the travel size, I bought the full size, long before I've finished the wee ones. Good news/bad news? It peels off easily, so you don't have the residue left around fingertips when you use remover on dark colors.
This really does help protect from normal wear and tear, chips, and tip erosion. I'm able to wear a color for 3-4 days with this while I'd normally only get 1 day of wear. The top coat is thick so pay attention to the instructions and apply as they say.
White it's certainly better than, it doesn't live up to a real gel manicure. I like it better than regular gel manis, it doesn't compare to regular gel manicures. Good for the money!
