I rarely write reviews but I couldn't help but do it this time! I was skeptical when I purchased this and I received it today. Tonight I decided to give it a try. I have been doing my own acrylics for years and always have flaws no matter how hard I try! I watched the DVD and decided to do pink and white instead of colors or just clear. I laid the form over my nail with the tip on it and marked the top where my natural nail and the tip met as a marker for where the pink ends and the white should begin. I put a ball of pink on it and spread it around and did the same with the white. I held it in place for a few seconds and went on to the next nail while that one dried. The forms popped off much easier than showed on the DVD. My nails have NEVER looked this good!! They came out perfect; no buffing needed and have a glass-like shine! I didn't even need a topcoat!! These are worth much more than the price that I paid! I'm in love and am sooooooo glad that I made this purchase! Don't miss out on these ladies! Such a life and time saver!!

I've been doing my own acrylic nails for over ten years. I was on the Sally's site looking at the nail primers and this came up as a suggested product. I looked at the video and decided to order it. I thought even if it was a total bust, it was so inexpensive, it was worth a try. I was apprehensive about using it, so I waited until I had a day off so I wouldn't be in a rush. My nails were a disaster. They were long overdue and badly damaged from a huge landscaping project my husband and I had just completed. I watched the video again before starting, read the enclosed directions, and plunged in. I started with my left thumb nail as I'm right-handed, waited a few minutes, and then popped the form off. I had a perfect and unbelievably shiny new nail! As I went on, I got better and it went faster. I found I could do 2 or 3 at once and file down the ends of the ones I'd just done while the new ones set. After so many years of doing my nails, I had the most perfect acrylic nails ever! The professionals don't get them that perfect, which is why I stopped going to them in the first place. I think the next time will go even better and faster. This product is a stroke of genius!

Haven't Used MIne Yet But....
I have watched a bunch of videos on YouTube and I've been a nail tech for 20 some years. I do my own tips and acrylics on myself and as I get older and my hands hurt more, it takes me longer to do kine at home. These look like the perfect solution! It seems fairly easy and I will be trying them next week when I put on a new set of nails. I like to give y nails a week long rest between sets because I change them every two months or so and just can't hardly wait to try these out. If the work half as well as everyone says that they do I'll be happy. I hate all the filing that I usualy end up doing on my own set but these come of looking like glass! I'll do another review after I use them.

I bought these about a year ago but was afraid to try them because I had no experience using acrylics. Finally bought the powder and tried it with the forms. The results are truly amazing! Very easy to do -- if you don't get the mix quite right, just add more powder or liquid. Hold the form down on the nail for about two minutes then you can let go and let it 'cure' for about two minutes more. The form pops off completely clean and the nail is so shiny and perfectly smooth with no need to buff. What a great product - highly recommend.
