Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and stay on well Acrylic lifts on my nails too easily, so I thought I'd try this because my nails love gel. Gel doesn't lift on my nails. I used this kit with tips. I'll probably try the forms eventually, but tips are easier. The system is easy to use. It'll take some practice to get perfect nails, but for my first time they look pretty good. It's faster than acrylic and for me it stays better. I tried dip powder before this and I hated that. Orly GelFX is so much better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never Going Back To Acrylic! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! I dont know how some reviewers are giving this product less that 4 stars. Tips i can give is PREP your nails. push back cuticles, dehydrate nail bed and do not flood the cuticle. if products touches skin, it will capture your natural oils and prevent proper adhesion. watch tutorials on youtube. i promise you will love this! also, i read a review that said it didnt dry. it leaves a tacky residue like most gel polishes. you just have to wipe your nail with a cleanser, hope that helps!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product I’ve been doing my own nails for a few years and I’ve tried many different methods, but this one takes the cake. I love how easy it is to use and create your own nail shape. It’s a great starter kit. I’ve purchased two more bottles of the Builder in a Bottle Gel, so that I can create more sets. They generally last around 2 weeks unless you’re washing your hands often and frequently dousing them in sanitizer during work then it’ll last around 1.5 weeks without a touch up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best... & I've had nails for 20 yrs I don't get the one star reviews for Orly Builder in a Bottle system. I've had my nails done forever, acrylic, gel, silk everything... and started doing my own gel nails two years ago at home. Tried several different brands and this is hands down the easiest and hardest finish. I have paper thin, flat nails, when they grow they turn up at the ends and have no firmness. So I need something to make them stand up to every day wear and able to build on top, easy and capable of filing down to right shape. I use a 34w LED lamp (I get split, bloody cuticles from UV) with three timer settings and it sets up perfectly. I think maybe some of these users are not using a high enough wattage lamp possibly. The only negative is the price, but if you compare to one salon gel manicure it's a no brainer. Love this stuff!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dont Waste Your Money It is really hard to do even with help from someone else. The gel takes forever to harden even under light and its super thin and flimsy. the form stickers are horrible. most definetly not worth the price

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable for real! I cannot believe this hasn’t come out sooner! An amateur can do this with professional results!!! I just wish the kit came with a light, the results are shocking!! If I could give it more stars I would, I did mine with tips too and wow unreal, I will never use acrylic powder again! Look out nail salons when this catches on!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING! I LOVE this product! I am not super nail savy but this product is definitely beginner friendly. I started with the nail forms the kit comes with but wasn’t crazy about them. I ordered a box of the fast forms and LET ME TELL YOU ... fantastic! At least for myself the forms make using the builder gel a lot easier. If you want to extend your nails without tips or acrylic this is what you need! I’ll attach a picture of me using the builder gel to create length and encapsulated sequins. A MUST BUY!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just slightly okay. Box arrived open and with extra primer. Couldn't get any application to stay more than a day, they just peeled off, but not sure if that was my fault or the product. Other than that I liked the product but trying a different product next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and Looks Good I have fell in love with this product. I bought it when I was needing a manicure during the COVID-19 and my nails were in rough shape. It was easy to apply and looked amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Last about 2 weeks It work good, it last about 2 weeks just like it would be if you got your nails done by a professional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product - just as easy to use as gel polish. So easy to use and I make the nails the shape and thickness I like -- not how the nail tech does.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good system It was very easy to use. It lasts very long and fillings are super easy. I had trouble using the nail sculpting stickers but ended up getting better results using nail forms. It’s very hard to remove. Overall its a good system for people who are on the go and don’t have a bunch of time to go to a salon. Great for quarantine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff Followed the video and they came out great! All though the nail forms were a little tricky for the nails that weren’t very long to begin with.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of time money and effort Extremely hard to make nails look smooth and even and alike. The forms are a joke.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy AF this stuff was so easy to use, it literally to 10min to do completely. i did an over-lay; applied my stickers( I can’t polish my nails); applied my top coat

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for strengthening! Purchased this finally! Was going back forth between this and another company. Zoya just launched a similar system but I opted for this. It definitely does build the nail! It may be a bit to thick for my nails as my nails are pretty thick naturally. I was also wanted to extend my manicures, so we will see on that!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product it is very easy to apply I really like it but peeled off some after 1 1/2 weeks
Date published: 2019-11-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff! I used this as an overlay to strengthen my super thin nails and it’s so easy! My nails are sort of wide and pretty flat so the technique in the video where they just drag the brush down the center doesn’t really work for me. I copied the gel artists I’ve seen on YouTube and dragged the product back and forth across my nails then turned my hand upside to let it pool in the middle a bit to build an apex and help keep it from flooding my cuticles. I scraped away any that get on my cuticles while they were upside down too, then flipped them over and went straight into the lamp. There’s a little heat spike but I just pulled them out for a second if it got too bad. This is 10x easier to use than polygel which I already thought was amazing compared to acrylic, which I am horrible at lol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality gels at a good price. very easy to use. Levels well, without leaking to skin as long as you follow easy instructions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from New Nails Appears to be a great product but not easy for a novice. One gets better with each application.
Date published: 2019-08-20
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good in theory. This kit is essentially everything that I was looking for! A better alternative to going to the salon but easy enough for the layman who doesn't know how to do nails. Easy application, and beautiful but they don't last! I think the longest time period that I was able to keep these on for before they started peeling off was 5 days. There were applications that would barely last me the day. If anyone has any tips and tricks as to how to keep them on longer I'm all ears but based on my experience with this, I wouldn't recommend.
Date published: 2019-08-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best! I tried other builder gels before this one and this one is hands down the best, I haven't experienced any lifting like i have with other builder gels. I love that the kit comes with everything forms, primer, top coat, file its definately worth the money. Pretty easy to do by yourself and looks really nice. I love that I dont have to wear tips or acrylic for length or strength because this stuff gives me both! I will definitely continue to purchase and use.
Date published: 2019-08-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Omg yesssss buy it now!! So I never write a review...EVER! But this was one of the easiest products I have ever used! I tried acrylic, gels, gel manicures and more...but nothing lasted or looked natural...I was sick of going to the salon and paying a ton of money for something I hated when I walked out the door! The best part...they soak off!!!! No damage! And they were easy to apply...I will warn you that you need to file a lot to make them smooth. However, once you get the hand of’s easy!! They look natural which I what I could make them long very easily!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Crystal Clear I absolutely adore this product. It is clear as anything and easy to work with. The bottle is clean and the packaging sleek but not unapproachable. The gel levels beautifully and encapsulates well. I love it! My only feedback for Orly is I need a bigger bottle! Or a refill container in a larger, salon size. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product! I’ve done my own gel manicure and acrylics but wanted to do something different. This kit was amazing ! So easy to use and I love my results! I hope they wear well as I just did them today, but I am so happy I decided to purchase this kit to give it a try!

Does this have a strong smell? 

Asked by: Savage46
No, not at all. I love this stuff, been using it for months. Has really helped me to keep my nails from breaking.

I'm confused about the curing time for the primer. I am not using this as a nail extender, I'm just doing an overlay on my natural nails. after applying the primer do I cure it? Or do I just apply the builder right over it?

Asked by: Cubankurls
In addition to my previous comments: The primer is not an overlay. It is a prep to using the builder gel. That would be the overlay you want.

Should you apply the top coat of this product if you are going to do a gel manicure over it?

Asked by: NeenCC123
No, the color sticks better without the top coat of this product. I use a different top coat after nail color.

I know this product is self leveling but could you use it with dual forms?

Asked by: Rachel63
Orly makes dual forms for this exact product on their website so based on what the manufacturer makes yes you can. Check out their site for more info.

Can this be applied over false nails?

Asked by: Summer96
Yes! I apply over false nail tips all the time. Be sure to file appropriately so that there is no shine on the false nail just like you would for the regular nail. Be sure to use the primer as well.

Will this product be available again or is it in the store

I have had trouble with the nail forms. When I remove them the extension gel form comes off as well. Does anyone have suggestions on how to prevent this? Should I be removing them from the side, or pulling outwards? Or not waiting long enough? Thanks

Asked by: Sienna K
You are connecting the gel to the nail yes? Because if you're just putting the builder gel in front of the nail and not actually connecting the two then it will come off when you take form off.

When would you apply polish? If I have a gel polish would I add before or after I cleanse? Thanks!

Asked by: bcbh8308
If you watched the video above.. you’d apply the polish immediately prior to the step where’s shes applying top coat
