I’ve never had a salon gel manicure but have used home nail strips and nail wraps and decided to give these a try. I absolutely love them! I used the builder gel and a top coat and they stayed on for a full 2 weeks looking beautiful. They were so easy to take off without any nail damage and I was happy to see how much my nails have grown while wearing them. I am currently letting my nails breathe for a few days with just cuticle oil applied daily but will putting my next set on this week! Can’t wait!
Application was awesome as always and could have kept on for 3 weeks but changed at 2 because I am impatient.
I was able to get a full manicure for both myself and my 12 year old daughter out of one set. My daughter's lasted a week (she's a picker) and mine lasted 10 days. After ~3-4 days my hair was getting caught at the cuticle line on a couple of the nails. I tried the acetone "trick" but they still caught. I will be extra cautious about making sure all oils are removed at that area and to not touch that part of the gellies during application next time to see if it stops catching my hair. On day 10, I had one start to peel up at the free nail area so they all came off at that point. I was worried about my splitting nails being weaker but somehow they felt stronger after removal. Shocked! Cannot wait to do our next mani. Still waiting on marshmallow and clear top coat to be back in stock for our next order.
