MINI Foundation Gel is rated 4.571428571428571 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from So-so at best and definitely overpriced. It's important to find a quality base coat otherwise removing your gel polish will ruin your nails. I tried the ASP brand at a Sally Beauty employee's recommendation and that was an awful experience. I then took a shot on the SUPER pricey Gellish base coat and top coat to find my experience removing gel polish greatly improved; HOWEVER, the foundation AND top coat thicken up SO quickly. I've even had to return bottles that I bought in the store bc I didn't check how thick they were prior to purchasing them. Ugh! A different Sally Beauty employee said that Gellish foundation and top coats are notorious for doing this, especially in warmer weather Additionally, the brushes become hard (and unusable) quickly. Yeah, I know not to paint my nails in front of an open window, etc, etc, etc. These still thicken and freeze up. I now use the OPI brand and am supremely pleased with the outcome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more nail biting! WOW! I have tried acrylics and did not like the cost or what they did to my nails. So, I stopped completely. I have been under stress and when I am, I bite my nails. My granddaughter (15) suggested I try this gel product. I can't believe how easy it is to use, only slightly more difficult than polishing my own nails. The best part is my nails are long again in only a few weeks, stopped my biting them and I am thrilled!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased with results I decided to save some money and start doing this myself. I found it to be much easier than I expected. I get perfect results and have no regrets. This is a great product! I am so glad I tried it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from gelish I am a nail tech.....I usually use acrylic but decided to start trying Gels. I have never really used them before. What I always hated about regular manicures and even acrylics is they always dull out in a few days to a week....this stuff DOES NOT!! Its amazing. I am hooked. I may never use acrylics again. Its been a week and my nails are super shiny. I do wish the bottles were a little bigger but its ok, still amazing. Nails are dry immediately so no more smudging!! One tip....add one extra minute to each best. I actually can walk around while curing!!!! LOVE IT I now own 7 colors,,,just wish there were more colors out....but im sure they are coming??

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it I recently purchased the gelish basix kit and decided to experiment with it. since my nails are really short i wanted to extend them just a little bit. i had some nail tips lying around but no nail glue so i figured i'd used the gelish foundation gel instead. so i painted my nail with a thin coat of gelish foundation gel and cured for about 2 to 3 second under the gelish mini lamp and while it was still under the light i added the tip to my nail to secure it on; when the minute was up i was suprised to see that the nail held on as if it were glued with regular nail glue then i proceeded to adding another coat of foundation gel just to secure and even out the surface. and continued the process used to complete the manicure. only downside is i didn't have any clear nail tips to use instead. but other than that this product is aaaaamaaaaaziiiing
