    i think there are 2 types of gel nails

    the traditional one requires filing to remove the gel while the newer one only need to soak to remove them.

    i did my soak of gel polish. indeed it can last very long. however, to remove it is not really about soaking it off. they soak, and use a metal piece to scrap off, then soak n scrap. my nails now feel so brittle and alots of "scar" on the nails.

    i dont feel it worth. and also to remove cost $30 (depend on where u go)

    Babes, this is also another soak off gel. You can see it often in Japanese nail magazines.

    Here's the full range, total of 48 colors. They will launch another new batch of colors in March.

    It seems like most salon are charging $100 for a set (both hands and feet). Kinda expensive for me too..

    Hi girls, I've been doing gelish manicures at fingertip for $35 inclusive of classic manicure. Soak off removal is $20 and gradation is $10. However, these are promotional prices so I don't know if they still apply. I've done gelish about 4-5 times and I would recommend it for sure! You can see pics and reach more at my site actually. Just search for gelish when you get to nailartexpress.wordpress.com

    Having tried various other gel nail polishes before (OPI, IBD) in both soak off and non-soak off varieties, I was a little skeptical of this product. I found it by accident while I was looking for CND's shellac. Another company recommended this product because CND has a shortage on their products right now.

    When I received this product, I brushed the base coat by Gelish on first and cured it for one minute under a UV lamp. Then, I brushed this on. I was really surprised at how easily it went on, and how pretty it is. It is a light pink and very sparkly. After two coats, it was completely opaque. I was very pleased at this point because the other gel polishes that I have tried before go on so sheer that you have to put on five to six coats to get the color you want. By the time you have put on that many coats, you have a fake nail instead of a polished natural one. This product made me feel like I had my own natural nails.

    After putting on two coats of this polish, I topped it off with IBD intense seal and cured it for two minutes. The result was a beautiful set of nails that took only about ten minutes to do. So far, I have had them on for four days, and no chips. I am rough on my nails, and I wash dishes, type a lot and clean constantly, so I usually have chips after a day or two. This is my new go to nail product!

    Where did you buy your uv light and gel sets? Can I do extensions on my own?
