Rated 5 out of 5 by CrazyMarie When product is not old, it works great.
I normally shop at one local Sally's. The few bottles of resin they had on the shelf were apparently old, because it would not adhere to my nails. I ordered a bottle on line thinking it would be new. It was, and it worked just like expected. I think there should maybe be an expiration date on this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by frost great for wraps
This is a good resin. I recommend using it with a wrap, not alone, or the ends of your nails will be too sharp-feeling. Also, it's a little brittle alone, but wears well with a wrap. Applies easily once you get the hang of it: squirt a THIN line down nail and then tilt the bottle so it doesn't keep running out as you smooth it around with the applicator tip. It can flood the cuticles easily, so use a cure spray or use extreme care how you hold your hand while it dries. Don't even try to use a nail brush because the resin will make it hard in seconds.
You will need a medium file to smooth it out once it's dry. If you intend to polish over it or to use a gel sealer, you will need to use a fine file or nothing can grab to the shiny finish. I definitely recommend purchasing the extra application tips, because the resin remains will plug the tip after a couple applications, even if you "burp" it like the instructions tell you. I haven't tried the resin activator spray because I already had Hurry Up Nails spray, which dries it instantly. To redo your nails, it files easily and also soaks off with acetone.
