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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money I tried applying the polish as directed, it chipped the next day. I tried applying the Top It Off from the Gelish set over the Uno Gelish polish. It peeled off the next day. The original Gelish multi-step polish works better. I'm returning this product

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Finger tips swelled I have 3 colors. Easy application but a burning sensation when using the led light. I was cautious to use the correct wattage light as it is a warning on the bottle. Sensitivity and slight swelling to the tips of my fingers each time I've used it. Chipping was a problem also. I'm throwing them away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It I use Gelish on my nails all the time. I usually use the multi step products and I love them. I tried this and I love it also. I would use this over the multi step except I can find more/different colors with the other. This stays on for many days and if I need to touch up a tip it is so much easier than the multi step! Mine does not flake off immediately! It holds tight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So surprised! I recently tried the UNO polishes and was so surprised! I was skeptical about the single step and how durable it would be. (I am a mom of 2 toddlers, in and out of car seats with buckles that always destroy my mani.) Not only did the UNO gel survive the car seats, it lasted for 2 weeks without chipping or peeling. After the experience with the first bottle, I went back and purchased 3 more colors.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I was excited to try this brand because I too loved the color options. Bun unfortunately it peeled and chipped in less than 5 days. I did use a top coat just to add shine and add some thickness to my thin nails. Unfortunately it just did not work out. I will be returning this hoping they will accept returns without a receipt. ☺️

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pealing within minutes I bought this a while back in a pink colour exited becase it said that no base or top coat was needed with some promising reviews I read online but it was pealing within minutes of curing it

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy I do my own gel nails, for years now and they last 2 to 3 weeks. With no chip. I only use opi and gelish. I decided to try this brand because I love the variety of colors, but returned the gel polishes the same day. It chipped and peels off like regular nail polish. Not worth it at all, you are better off buying regular nail polish.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Started chipping like regular polish I've been using gel polish since regular nail polish doesn't even last a day on my nails, this started doing the exact same thing. The very next morning it started chipping off. The color was so pretty (honey bare) definitely upset it doesn't last long.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Started wearing off the next day. Not like gel at all. More like regular nail polish.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love the Colour - hate the quality I really love the durability of the Gelish nail polishes with the UV light. I find it a long process to do the top coat, several coats of polish and then a top coat, but I love the result. So when I saw that this was one step, it was happy! Unfortunately, the quality wasn't there. I had two fingers lose their polish within the first 24 hours and a third the next day. I absolutely love the colours I got, but I am going to try to do it with all of the regular steps to see if that helps it stay on longer. In short, I love the idea of one step, but in reality, it didn't work :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for some nails We have "Ruby Lips" (an orange ruby color, wish it was more purple), "Electric Kiss", "Mermaid of Honor", "Sprinkles on Top" and "Teal Then". There are three of us in one household that use the polish. The very first time we used it we didn't read the directions and put it on way too thick, which left it bumpy and only lasted a few days. The next time we gently buffed our nails, used a dehydrate & cleansing wipe and applied one thin layer, dried for 45-55 seconds, applied second layer and dried for 45-55 seconds. On one person the polish looked great after over 7 days, although all the shine was gone by then. This person types daily, scrubs dishes and handles cleaning products. Second person no issues for the first 4-5 days before it started to chip along cuticle side, but they are prone to pick at their nails. Last person seems to have an issue with ever color where one nail will chip but the others look great for 5+ days. We think maybe it has to do with technique or some of us having more oily nails than others for the chipping to occur. We will continue to use the product because we love the colors and that we can have our nails completely dry and ready to leave the house in less than 10 minutes total. Plus it removes nicely with the three different soak off products we have tried.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible performance This product was such a disappointment. I love the colour "magic mauve" and was hoping it would be my new holy grail of gel polishes. Sally doesn't carry this colour in any of the other gel brands and it's the perfect nude shade for darker skin. But the polish peels and chips within a day of wear. I use proper cleansing wipes, and I've even tried using it as a normal gelish polish, with the foundation underneath and top it off on top, but it still peels by the next day. Save your time and money! Wish I did.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Easy to use I was really excited to try this product since you don't have use a top and bottom coat. I applied the gelish polish as directed and with in one day of work both hands hand some big chips. Unfortunately I will be returning this product as it doesn't last longer than regular polish.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money! I am a long time DIY gelish user, with great results. I prepped my nails as I would for a regular gelish manicure, then applied uno. It chipped within hours! The texture is thick and gloopy, full of little bits of who know what. Straight into the trash it went! Shame, as there are some beautiful colors that aren't part of the gelish line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from glad for these - less damaging than multi step gel I have the dragonfly color and not had a problem. I am pretty sure I even thinned it with the gel polish thinner I bought at Sally. I do use nail primer for gel polish on my nails though and I still cleanse the nails. If I don't, things chip faster no matter what. Right now I've had this color on for 6 days with no chips and no lifting at the cuticle. I also tend to use a glitter top coat for some sparkle. My nails are broad and thin and so no matter what kind of gel polish I use I have to put several coats to build up the strength of the nail. (I wear nail polish for protection of my nails, as well as color, and so regular polishes just don't cut it except when I have no time to redo gel color, because they just don't stay on and seem to allow my nails to dry out faster. When I have gel on, my nails do get some more arch to them (preserves moisture?), but when I have regular polish on they tend to stay flat. What I like about these particular one step gels is that they don't seem to damage my nail like the previous multi step gels have and possibly that is why I find it is also easier to get off. Hoping to try some other colors soon. ALSO - I had chewed my pinky nails (terrible habit I know, which is why I tend to keep polish on!) too short and so I stuck an acrylic on there to protect them till they grow out. I used this polish on those acrylic nails and it works fine there too. Though because of my currently short natural nail I often have to replace the acrylic.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Impressed I have been using Gelish polish at home for almost 3 years. I was at Sally the other day and saw the uno line of Gelish. I painted my nails Friday night the mermaid of honor. It is sunday afternoon and I have two nails chipping. The polish applied like other gelish products. The polish is a dark color and I did experience some shirking. I had to use three coats to get good coverage, more than I expected with the more uno. I don't think I saved a whole lot of time my not applying the foundation and top coat. The shine is ok but not as good as the regular top coat gives. I use gelish because I can do may nails once and be set for two weeks. Uno is chipping after a weekend. I don't know if I will try any other uno colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Honey Bare Discovered this one on my last trip to Sally's last week. I'm such a sucker for polish. I had my reservations since it's from Gelish, but i decided that i had to try it. LOVE. IT. The formula is thicker than I'm used to for a gel but still flowed nicely onto the nail. The pigment is fantastic. Even for this nude color, there was good coverage in one coat. But 2 coats is perfect for full coverage. I was actually able to keep it on for a whole 6 days. For me, that's quite a feat. The regular gels start to lift on me after a few days. I even like the size of the bottle. Not too big. but not tiny like some of the minis that are actually microscopic. And the biggest plus for me, the finish is SUPER SHINY! I love a glass smooth super shiny finish and this has that. SCORE! I will definitely be getting more colors soon. I have to admit, I vowed a few years ago to never use another Gelish product after I broke up with them. I was sick of spending endless hours hunched over my nails and lamp trying to get decent coverage out of their polish. Coverage sucked. Formula sucked. Pigment sucked. Wear sucked. I think Gelsih finally NAILED 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.
