Rated 1 out of 5 by from Honey Bare Gel Polish Awful! This gel polish buckled and cracked before I could get it under the light to set it. Something terribly wrong here!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as expected. Not long wearing You are lucky if you get a full day out of this. I did everything by the book. I did not have the burning reaction others have reported.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good Colors, Not What's Advertised I adore the colors that I had purchased (Classic Vinyl and Mermaid of Honor), but don't be fooled into thinking you won't need a top coat. This is not an all in one system as they advertised. I tried it as they recommended, spent the evening with my toddler, and already all of my free edges were chipped. I touched them up and threw on a gel top coat and am hoping for a better result. So far so good. I'm not sure that it's worth paying the extra from their regular line when there is seemingly very little difference.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Chips easily I got the color Spiced Plum on clearance ($2.49, it was a steal) and loved the color itself.. I didn't really know what the "one -step" feature meant so I applied it as I would my normal gel polish: Foundation, 2 coats of color, and the Top it Off. I don't usually like to go through the hassle of sealing the free edge but this color was slightly chipping after less than 24 hours. Maybe it's my technique but other brands/types last a lot longer, even the fake Gelish polish I bought on Wish. I will use it because I paid for it and the color is magnificent but in the future will purchase the Gelish not the one-step.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible burning rash I bought this and at first it seemed fine but then after a few weeks it started to burn and anywhere I touch on my body I broke out in a flaming red rash. My nail beds got so red and my nails became so brittle. This is the worst gel polish I ever used it’s taken almost a year for my nails to become some what normal. No one should use this. It’s terrible and I’m not kidding it made me break out anywhere I touched on my own body.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks great for a few hours Like other reviews I would say that it chips and peels off really fast. It looked great when you first put it on but does not last long. I have the 16G Geliah lamp and I used the 30 second light time each coat. I put it on at 8am, by noon I noticed a chip and by 2pm I had just peeled the rest off. Plus it did stain my nails already too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Challenging I am a retired nail tech. of 18 years and this gel polish is very picky and challenging to apply without it bubbling up. I’ve done my homework on how to apply. The thinner the better. Even after light drying some stay tacky for quite awhile. A few even just pealed off within an hour. I would not recommend this brand. I purchased 3 colors and they will be returned. Very disappointed
Date published: 2018-06-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loooooove I’m not sure why this is getting such awful reviews. I’ve had this one for two weeks and I don’t have a single chip on them. Only sign of where is my natural nail growing out! I use this this a base and too coat so maybe that’s why get extended ware time but this stiff is amazing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Long Wearing I bought this polish about 2 weeks ago, and overall I am not impressed with the wear time of it, however, the colour is beautiful. I tried it without a base or top coat (like it recommends) and it peeled off within a few hours. I then tried it with just a base coat and the polish and it again peeled off within a few hours. SO then I decided to try it with a base and top coat. It stayed for about a day. finally I tried it on top of my gel nails (IBD Builder Gel), with a base and top coat and that has seemed to work the best. (Every time I applied it, there was full and proper prep step of the nails)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful but SO PAINFUL I have used this line of gel polishes in black and I haven’t had any issues. But I tried this color yesterday with my normal procedure, I applied well, didn’t peel and looks beautiful!!! BUT later that night my finger tips started to hurt/burn/itch. It hurt so bad I could not fall asleep. Even in the morning my nails burn and itch, the feeling hasn’t subsided. I’m so disappointed because this color is sooo beautiful. I will be returning it :(.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from If you like to peel nail polish you will love this The only good thing about this polish is the pleasant feeling you get from of peeling off the polish from your nails. It lasted 1 hour and by the end of the night all the polish was gone. Tried it again with a top coat and it was all gone within hours.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad reaction Whatever is in this product caused my nails to burn and stained my nails. Nails became brittle and sensitive after use
Date published: 2018-01-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PRODUCT I love this product! Although, you must put a get primer on your nails to ensure long wear. I love it, it is not sticky when finished. Very simple to use and fast. Would definitely buy again!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Falls off immediately I put this on to last at least a week, not a day. within 24 hours it is lifting. Love the colour and application, hate that it doesn't do what it is supposed to do.
Date published: 2017-12-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly if applied correctly I use 2 very thin layers and have NEVER had it bubble, ripple, or chip. You have to take the time to apply it thin and do not get it on the cuticle or it will peel and/ or bubble. I've worn several of the colors over 9 days and never had a bubble or chip so it HAS you be application technique issue.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Only Lasted 3 days before chipping/peeling. I decided to try this brand out and it was a beautiful color, easy to use, and I received many compliments on it. However, it started chipping by day two, and by day 3 the gel peeled off. I guess it's good if you don't want to commit to one color of polish and it's easy to change but definitely wouldn't purchase anymore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far I love it Goes on smoothly, I'm on day three so far no issues I've done dish, laundry and keep in mind I has an infant I got three different colors I've only tried honey bare. Can't wait to try the other 2.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from UNO don't waste your money!!!!1 Bought a week ago, this stuff is the biggest waste of time and money there is, peeled off in less than five minutes after taking numerous tries to get a smooth coat, it is junk.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Faded to different colour in a day I bought the gelish uno in "you're such a girl" because I wanted the candy pink. Well it took 5 coats to be opaque, then it turned peachy/orange a day later. Would never buy again. Super disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for in between manicures First off, I think the reviews on this are a bit harsh. What do you expect? This is a ONE step gel polish compared to your usual THREE step and the product does not guarantee long wear. Have realistic expectations with this. I have had this on for 8 days. A couple of nails on my right hand (I'm right handed) have significantly chipped. My left hand is still intact. It is looking a little dull at this point. I think this is great for quick wear in between regular gel manicures. If you need something to get you thru a week or so. It's also super quick to apply. I haven't tried to remove it yet. I'm going to keep it on for a full 10 days but I'm guessing due to the less layers and bonding it will be easier to remove than regular polish.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Caused pain I bought this item and returned it. After 30 minutes if having it on my finger tips started aching. I soaked them in acetone to remove the polish and it didn't come off. I had to scrap it off and my nails are stained.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from True to color lasts long! No burning or foul smell. Color lasted 2 weeks. Will definitely buy more colors.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money It chipped the next day and every day afterwards. Awful, will not buy again.
Date published: 2017-06-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PRODUCT I love this product, i think it stays true to color, no burning, lasts 9 days at least and applied smooth and quick. I noticed none of the complaints that other have had, will continue to use for A long time. I recommend a higher wattage light as it cures quickly and lasts longer

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Chipped immediately I tried this polish twice and both times it chipped within a few hours of application. Also, before curing it looked nice and smooth, but after curing it appeared gloppy. I'm returning this polish.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Burning sensation Polish was goopy when applying, burned under light, and burned all day. Removed it and fingers are still sore!
Date published: 2017-05-13
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Changed colors under light Returned because within 24 hours it went from a pretty neutral color to a yellowish sickly neutral. I guess it reacted to the LED light.
Date published: 2017-05-04
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Smells awful and burns during curing I was hoping to shave some time off of my manicure and pedicure by trying the Uno. Boy was I wrong. This stuff stinks so bad. It smells like--forgive me--poo. Plus it burns during curing. It's going back asap.
Date published: 2017-04-24
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good buy something else I bought this and only got to use it one time. I stored it properly and the next time I went to use it the brush was totally mangled from just being in the bottle. I figured I could work with that since I have a steady hand but the polish was also dry and goopy. Not a good purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't like this product I tried it twice. The first time was ok, the second time about 3 months later it burned after the light treatment. Then it started burning again while I was sleeping. I had to wake up and remove it.

How long do you leave it under light

Asked by: SuziQ427
30 seconds to 2 minutes it depends on how thick you apply the nail polish. 30 seconds-thin coat 2 minutes-thick coat Anywhere in between a thick and thin coat I would do a minute.

How do you remove the color? 

Asked by: Kimmi1245
I cut cotton pads into little nail sized squares, dip them in acetone, then place the square on the nail and wrap my fingertips in aluminum foil. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes then the polish bubbles up and scrapes off very easily. It will usually scrape off just by using a nail, but I use a tool I got at Sally’s. It seems easier on the nail than filing it all off. I’m kinda particular about my nail process though. It usually takes me 45 minutes to do a whole mani (removal, nail care, and reapply). UNO gel polish is my favorite gel polish so far. The only downside is that I think it has a bad smell to it right after it’s LED cured, but it washes away easily and I don’t notice it after that.

Has anyone ever experienced an allergic reaction with this brand? After i cured my nails with uno my cuticles felt SO itchy and after a couple of days the skin started to swell, crack, and eventually peeled off. Took two weeks to clear up :(

Asked by: Bianca Ali
Yes, I am experiencing the same. I have some pictures if needed.

Do I need to use Top It Off with this polish?

Asked by: Arlenej2018
You can if you want to make it shinny but not needed.

is it not supposed to have a brush for polish instead of a stick like thing to use?

Asked by: pammie12
The ones with the stick are the "tester" - Ive noticed that often sally only has one bottle on display, the bottles for sale are kept behind the check-out counter. Sally does not do a good job about communicating this process to their customers, but the ones with the stick are not intended for sale, just to see the color.

why does it bubble after the uv light

Asked by: vernag97
I use 2 very thin layers and have NEVER had it bubble, ripple, or chip. You have to take the time to apply it thin and do not get it on the cuticle or it will peel and/ or bubble. I've worn several of the colors over 9 days and never had a bubble or chip so it HAS you be application technique issue.
