Rated 5 out of 5 by from Longer lasting manis My natural nails are very thin and flexible, even with standard gel base coats. This product helps my gel manicures last longer, and it adds some strength and hardness to my nails. Works best with the accompanying top coat; works ok but not as well with gel top coats from other brands.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good buy for the nail diy-er Very easy to apply. The videos are very helpful and their instructions are detailed. My manicure lasted 2 weeks and I have hard working hands. Can be combined with regular nail polish for cute manicures. Removal is tricky, I suggest an e file for easier, speedier removal. Overall I like it, would buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even a beginner can do this!!! This was the 1st time doing my own nails & they definitely look like a professional did them. It was not as easy as the video but I made it work with not a lot of effort. You have to try this! I’m impressed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well Products are easy to use and I found them to work well. I do have some lifting issues but I tend to with most products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I’ve had fake nails on for years. I’ve done my own nails with acrylic, hard gel, gel polish, you name it, I’ve tried it. In recent years, I found a salon I liked, but due to Covid, I was unable to go. I picked up this kit on a whim to start doing my own nails again and I LOVE it! So easy. Once I got the hang of the process on two or three nails, I barely even had to file the rest. Perfect form and shape every time! Buy this product. It’s awesome.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gel doesnt stay put The gel was easy to use and looks great. he only issue I have is that when you wear it for a few days it starts to peel off. I don't just mean the polish area, but the whole gel nail comes off.
Date published: 2020-08-03
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 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.

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
1. Are you pushing cuticle back and using a light file to remove the shine on your nails? 2. You must use a UV or LED lamp to cure the product. I cure base coat, product, AND top coat 60 seconds at least. I highly recommend you read the instructions as well as watch many you tube videos on how to apply polygels. There are some great instructors out there as well as DIY's. Then, practice, practice, practice! Good luck!

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.
Answered by: GHothersall
Date published: 2020-12-24

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.

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
