So far so good. The bottles were slightly smaller than I thought they would be but that's okay doesn't require a whole lot of the product. The nail remover didn't work as well as I thought it should but that could be because I was removing acrylics with it and not gel. :) lol

Gelish Basix Kit has outlasted any other gel nails I've had (salon and at-home). I painted my nails one week ago and they are still going strong - no chips, no peeling. In the past, gel nails have only lasted a max of 3-5 days on my super oily nails so I'm absolutely impressed! It looks like I'll get a 2 week wear out of this color, if not, more (the package says color lasts 21 days - fingers crossed it does).
I've used Sensationail in the past and I've had to do 2 nails at a time because the product would slide around my nail and flood my cuticles if not cured immediately. With Gelish I can do my whole hand at once without worry!
I wish they would sell larger bottles - it'd be worth the money!

I purchased this kit after looking over a few option. Wanted to do my own gel polish to save money and time. This kit is a great price and has everything needed. If you want color you will need to purchase that separately. This kit works wonderful cures perfect with a light and proper application. Great price compared to others out there.

This system works just like they say it will. I rarely did my nails with regular polish because the time spent was not worth the result. I really love this system and the colors they offer. I have recommended it to friends and all have thanked me for the advice. (I don't recommend products often since a lot of variables come into play.# The results were good from the start, but with practice I have gotten even better results. My nails grow longer now due to the strength of this product. I will say that I have managed to keep sets on for six weeks at a time. By carefully doing each step as recommended, they last two weeks easily. The problem at that point is that the base of the nail starts to show where it is uncovered. So, I carefully go through ALL of the steps over the top of the polish already there. After another two weeks, I do it again. Two weeks later, I remove them and start fresh. In answer to the questions: YES-- you can change colors at each two week interval. NO -- it doesn't get to be too thick, you make the layers thin as you are going. NO -- they don't perform any differently with all those coats on #in my opinion, it makes my nails nearly indestructible.) YES -- removal takes a bit longer, but it is well worth the time since it is only once every six weeks. Not only do I recommend this to my friends, I have purchased it as a gift for my nieces.
