Rated 1 out of 5 by nursetraveler from Chipped on the first day I have used the other polish strips from Sally Hansen and was really hopeful that this kind would last longer with it using the light and gel polish. It didn't. My polish started chipping and flaking off on the first night, and I followed the instructions exactly. I bought the kit with the "shall we dance" color. It is SO fair and light, almost like you have nothing on. In my mind, I would have liked it a bit more pronounced, especially if you are going through all the trouble of putting each nail on (which with the light, can take time). Overall, disappointed especially for the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by popptart from Broke on the second use I'm so disappointed! I use the nail strips all the time and thought I'd try to make them last even longer with gel. The strips that came with the kit were thick, stiff and unusable, so I used standard strips and the gel coat locked them in wonderfully. But the next time I tried to use the lamp, the power source snapped. I got one manicure out of the whole thing and am frustrated that I spent the money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Loolaloves from Great for pedicure! Being a yoga instructor I do everything to keep my feet and nails in good condition since I show it to people every day. Up until I started using this product I couldn't find a nail polish that would last more than 2-3 days ( being on the yoga mat probably does not help either to keep the polish on) . This one lasts around a month in perfect condition + the shine is superb! I don't even know if it is for pedicure but my tiny feet have no problem fitting underneath the lamp:). Unfortunately I can't get the same success on me finger nails, I suspect it's because I have problem with applying really thin layer on my nails and it starts to wear off after 2-3 days, I prefere miracle gel for manicure much more

Rated 4 out of 5 by Momof6girls from Very Happy with this product. I finally have pretty nails that meet my budget. Like everyone else, I was skeptical about buying this Gel Starter Kit (paid $49.95 @ Walmart). It has been worth every penny. Just used it for my second manicure. First manicure lasted just short of two weeks. I feel more comfortable with the process and getting better at painting my right hand..:) It has already paid for itself!! As much as I liked getting my manicures, my pocketbook was feeling very empty. I would have to agree that Sally Hansen must develop more colors. Are you guys listening????

Rated 3 out of 5 by bttrflypin from Cannot get the polish to last more than a few hours I am having a terrible time getting the polish to last more than a few hours before it begins to peel off. We have followed all directions, tips, and tricks...but still it does not stay for very long. I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong.

Rated 4 out of 5 by juliet from glad I bought it I have never had a manicure because I never thought it was worth the price. Normally I can't keep other polish on my fingers long enough to spend the time to do my nails. Someone told me about gel polish and I rushed out to buy a bottle. Didn't realize there was a whole process to go through. So back to the store to get this kit. I love it. First go around the polish stayed on for about 10 days. One nail I had to redo on the third day and another started losing polish about day 6. I just redid my nails tonight in a different color. The light fixture must have gotten better over time because I can't see how those problems others listed are even possible. My only complaint, like others, is the polish shown is not the true color. Wine Not is actually a plain red color. Bought Red Zin and it's the darker red I was looking for. Given other reviews, I will stick with darker colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by elsab123 from love! I have been using this since it was launched in 2012 (I think). I love it! My professional life calls for hands that are manicured. This system is great, and I frequently refer women to it when they compliment my "always perfect" nails and hands. I'm not into nail art, and I work for a very conservative company #glitter polish is too much, lol# so this little system is just perfect for me. I also love that I have completely stopped picking at my cuticles because I don't want to ruin my lovely nails! I don't have time for weekly manicures, and I can do this gel kit at 11pm while I'm answering emails!

Rated 5 out of 5 by workingmom from MUST HAVE!!! I have been doing my own nails with regular polish for a few months. I tried many hardeners, top coats, fast drying drops. You name it. It would take me around 2 hours to complete the whole process and had to redo them every 4 days if I was lucky. And this was after applying a fresh top coat every other day. I went to a salon to have them do a gel mani as I had heard great things about it. I had them done and it lasted about 10 days before it started to chip and obvious growth. I decided I wanted to purchase my own kit after spending 30 bucks at the salon to have them done. There was no way I could afford to keep them up. I read reviews on the cheaper of the bunches available. I decided to try this one then looked for any type of coupons available. Target happened to have a 15% off with the cartwheel app. So I paid 45 dollars for the kit with tax. Not bad considering I just spent 30 at the salon. I got the wine not kit after reading many users saying the light pink wasn't so great. Seeing how it is summer I didn't want to go with the dark burgandy color right away. Like the color but will save it for fall. I purchased the comandar in chic and a pink color I can't remember the name of. I used the kit for the first time last night. I must say I love how fast it is dry. One of my major issues with regular polish that is takes hours for it to dry. I would say it took me about 30-40 mins and they are totally dry immediatly after. I will say I was worried because each coat felt wet or sticky. But I just kept going and when finished used the alchol wipes and they were totally good to go. I did do three coats of the commander in chic because it didn't look right after two coats. So far all is good. I would 100% reccommend this kit to every person weather you are trying to save on the salon or just tired of the hours it takes to do your own nails. This will save you so much time and lots of $$$.....
