Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweater Weather Gel review This product worked very well, no issues with application. The color is a deep gray leaning toward purple. It can look almost black from further away but it is a dark gray smoked purple. I put a very thin line of gold dust on the tips of my pinky and ring fingers for a French manicure and it looks very classy. 5/5 would definitely buy again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overpriced Two things 1-couldn’t tell it was half size. $10 for a half size bottle? 2-didn’t realize all gel polished were not the same and that this one needed to be cured with UV. Wouldn’t have purchased.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Peach - not pink. The polish itself is actually a really pretty peach color, but the low rating is for the deceiving color portrayed on the bottle, making it seem much more light pink than it really is. This is definitely a vibrant peach color.

How do you get this Gelish off, if you need to?

Asked by: Ann EDGS
Soak a small piece of cotton ball in acetone nail polish remover and place that on your nail. Wrap your finger (with the cotton ball still on the nail) in a piece of aluminum foil. Let it soak for 10-15 minutes and then sluff off the nail polish with a wooden nail stick.

Do you have to use a light lamp for this nail polish ?

Asked by: Melody McCoy
yes, all gel polishes require a lamp, either uv or led, you have to know the brand of polish and the requirements for the light, usually uv will cure all polishes, and takes longer(2 minutes each coat) and led can be anywhere from 30-45 seconds per coat. The led one is much faster

Asked by: juliaswarbs
You select your polish colors from the drop down box, add them to your basket. To receive your free polish you must add the 3rd polish to your basket- once you go to check out or view your basket the cart will auto adjust the price to reflect the 3rd free polish.

I have a question can I use this to put on my nails an well it be like a overlay an well it help my nails grow

Asked by: Mrs cupcake
It will help prevent breaking of your nails because the added thickness of the polish makes your nails have more strength. It looks like regular polish but is thicker- but not as thick and hard as acrylic overlays. It feels like you have a layer of flexible plastic adhering to your nails.

Can other brands of polish--either gel polish or regular polish--be used with the Gelish bond and foundation products?

Asked by: luvmynails
Hi! There is a technique called the Gelly Sandwich. You can look it up online but, basically, after you do your foundation coats, you clean your nails with the cleanser (or straight alcohol), then apply regular nail polish; do not cap the tips! Note: for the best success, you MUST allow the nail polish to be *completely* dry! Then cleanse again, use your pH bonder again, then top coat, and cap your tips. Following the rules set above, a manicure will last up to 2 weeks. Good luck!!!

I thought Gelish products could soak off with water. Why are some customers who posted here soaking them off with alcohol?

Asked by: luvmynails
Definitely doesn't come off with water. You have to use acetone. It soaks off with acetone.

I would like to start doing my own nails at home. Can someone tell me what all I need to get started? I usually get a French manicure in gel at the salon. 

Asked by: Grandma Yarbrough
Exactly as LeeAnn20 said buy the base kit.  Purchased my kit in Sept. 2016, only half empty in April with once a week usage.   Gelish is the best polish I've found.  The Top Coat is phenomenal!! I have a MelodySusie LED 48watt.  My process file and buff nail surface, wipe rubbing alcohol, Ph Bond, apply foundation coat, 30 seconds curing for foundation, then apply polish, 60 seconds curing, apply second coat, 60 seconds curing, then wipe rubbing alcohol, finish with cuticle oil.  Save $$ per month and weekly compliments.

Why does Gelish shrink when applying??

Asked by: Jenjen1314
From my experience, the gelish polish shrinks when the polish isn't fresh, as in, been open a while. Also, I've noticed inconsistencies when I use gel polish on humid/rainy days. Not sure if this helps, just thought I'd chime in.

is this a shiney polish?

Asked by: janetbartee
Yes, it comes out shiny if applied correctly. I have been doing my own nails with this brand now for 2 years and it takes about an hour to do each time if I follow all the steps correctly, but it literally will last 2-3 weeks without any chipping (just like the nail salon). I hope this helps.

This is VERY sheer. I suppose it's a matter of preference, but I personally would not use it. Sorry, I don't have a specific Gelish color recommendation.
