" ...  Anyway, after I saw the advertisement I started researching the poly gel nails and saw how popular they had become and how many people were successfully doing them all by themselves. ... I plan to do some heavy duty yardwork this weekend which makes all of my glue nails come right off so I will update this review if I have that problem with the poly gel nails.  ...  "

" ...  Overall very happy with this kit, I don’t think the brush is the best- but it works.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Follow the instructions Aka: apply base coat, cure under lamp 30-60 sec, apply poly gel with brush that is slightly dampened with alcohol solution, shape gel, cure for 90-130 sec (better safe than sorry, so cure them long), then WIPE OFF with a cotton ball that has rubbing alcohol on it to get rid of the stickiness, shape/file the whole nail even if the shininess is tempting to keep (this is important), apply top coat evenly, cure again for a long time, wipe off again with alcohol, apply cuticle  ...  "
comment
" ...  I would suggest having nail monomer to keep the brush wet when molding the gel and it really helps with the stickiness.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I used 90% alcohol as my slip solution and the polygel was super easy to maneuver and wasn’t sticky at all.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Used rubbing alcohol for slip solution and ordered a lamp from elsewhere.  ...  "

comment
" ...  Easy to use, instructions are pretty clear and once you get the gist on how much product per nail you need to use its a breeze, dont need to buy the slip solution, i used alcohol and it worked great, had to hold the nail in place while it was curing to avoid air bubbles near the cuticle which was a little tricky but no problemo, very happy with the end result, gotta still test for durability but they feel pretty solid.  ...  "
