FingerPaints Gel Polish Base Coat
When this stuff cures, and it does cure fast, it shrinks back, then, about 1 to 2 millimeters of nail tip is without the base. You will have to apply again and cure. After all steps are done look forward to your manicure lasting roughly a few hours to MAYBE a whole day. They peel off like a sticker with very little to no effort. So if you need a temporary color or like to blog about new colors, I would totally recommend this base for easy removal, lol. If you are looking for a base to help your color last a week or two then go with Orly GelFX base or better yet, Gelish base coat. For me, this was $10.00 wasted:(Do not purchase this base! This is the worst one I have tried.

This gel base lasts hardly any time. Though removal is a breeze....half of the nails came off on their own. Don't think I would buy this base again. The nail gel color is rather nice. Would recommend a different base.

Complete waste of money
This gel base coat is the most complete waste of money polish I have ever purchased. I've had it for 2 days. I did my nails the first day, cured with the UV light. I know how to do them properly, I've done them many times, but I lost my other bottle of base coat from a different brand, so I bought this one with a BOGO free deal. I thought maybe I painted them too thick the first time, they were peeling off, I peeled the rest of the polish off (no soaking needed whatsoever) and did them again carefully with thin layers. The next morning, again they are peeling off in WHOLE pieces! I'm returning it today and going to the try the expensive Gelous brand.

Lasted less than 24 hours
Let me start by saying: I've followed the directions from the included DVD and used the Gelish LED PRO:45 light also purchased from Sally's.
PROS: REALLY simple to remove...all you have to do is take a hot shower, just like the one you take EVERY morning and this polish will be off by mid-day. If you want to speed up the process, just wash your hands before lunch that day and the polish will just slip right off...in ONE PIECE! Honestly, the polish does look good while it lasts, but it doesn't last long enough to show off. It doesn't really smell that bad, and applying it is really easy.
CONS: I can't believe I spent that much money on this polish. If this were $2-3/bottle, I would be 100% okay with buying this and applying it directly before special occasions (because that's all the longer it would last), but it's WAY too expensive. It doesn't stand up to normal wear and tear...or even being really careful with your nails.
OVERALL: Stay away. Save your money.
