Gelous Nail Gel
I purchased this after seeing it mentioned in a bunch of Pinterest posts. I've had trouble getting my nails to grow, they seemed to be very flimsy when they got any length and would break from either peeling or splitting. Since I've used this the last two/three weeks, I haven't had one nail break. Nails feel much thicker. Only downside is the smell, which is very strong, similar to Seche Vite.

I bought this after reading a few DIY gel manicure posts on Pinterest. Every single post said this stuff was the "secret ingredient" to get the perfect, at-home gel manicure. Each post said that it lasts for up to 14 days. I have tried it 3 times now, all with higher end nail polishes, and each time, it has chipped FASTER than if I just use the nail polish alone. I was really looking forward to not having to paint my nails every couple of days. Such a bummer.

Really gives regular nail polish a gel nail look
I bought this product after seeing a Pin on Pinterest showing how you can do gel nails using regular nail polish. The pin suggested using several alternating layers using this product, but you can actually just paint your nails the regular way by using a base coat, nail color, Gelous, then a top coat, and you still get the effect of a gel finish on your nails. It may not last as long doing it that way, but it reduces the time when it is time to change nail polish. I would highly advise when applying this product try using thin coats. It is very thick and can take a long time to dry . Also if you live in a humid environment,this product can become harder to get out of the bottle over time and seems to become harder to apply.

You MUST add this to your manicure kit. After refusing for years to do my manicures because of polish chipping within days, I am in love with this product. Seven days without a single chip has made me a believer in manicures again. I use this product as a top coat after the final layer of polish with a couple a drops of Essie quick drying oil and within 15 minutes my nails are dry. Surely this product could keep a manicure in tack for longer than 7 days but since I like to keep my manicure color fresh, I renew my nails weekly. Because I seldom find bottles of Gelous on the shelves, I ask the clerk if there any in the back and if there are, I buy two at a time.
