I always get gel polish and a manicure at the salon. I like gel polish because when done correctly, it lasts on my natural nails. I Do NOT, however, like having my hands under the lights, the extra cost or how difficult it is to come off when its time for a new manicure. Also, I noticed that sometimes the gel at the salon would peel making it not worth the extra money. I purchased the Gel Envy along with the Diamond Top Coat and took it with me to the salon. (I would have done it myself but I cannot paint my own nails) I have short nails, filed rounded. The salon used their own base coat. They gave me two coats of the Gel Envy and 1 coat of the Diamond Top coat. I spent two rounds under the nail dryer. The color lasted for two weeks. It did not peel or chip. The color was vibrant the whole time. The only place that didn't have color was at the cuticle line where the new nail was growing in. It cost me $10 for the manicure plus the cost of the polish which is mine to keep for...
It's overpriced here. Apply the polish as thinly as you can; it will bubble other wise. I get about four days wear before the edges show wear and tear.
I have been a nail abuser all my life. I teach piano and my students nails looked better then mine so decided to let them grow out. I went and got a manicure and not even a day and it started chipping. By day 3 could not stand it so off it came. I did some research and decided to try the Gel Envy. Well it is day 6 and still going strong.Notice a little tip wear but only noticeable to me and I do play piano so its to be expected. I am so excited that this polish lasts. I am ready to try another color but this still looks so good do not want to remove. I love this color, it is almost red, kind of a red/pink. Pretty. Do not understand the negative reviews. I cleaned with alcohol, put on two coats and one top coat the first day and another top coat the second remember to put the top coat on the tips. It works for me.
