Mally 24/7 Gel Polish Nail Color
Mally 24/7 Gel Polish Nail Color
Not impressed at all. Pricey and probably the smallest bottle of nail polish I have ever seen in my life. Don't waste your money
PLEASE WATCH VIDEO(s) FOR GEL POLISH FIRST
I read some reviews here that show customers are obviously confused about this gel polish. One in particular was upset because it didn't dry and she had to buy what she thought was a "dryer" to get the polish to set. Unfortunately, she will likely be upset again when she gets that although it will help. Like all gel polishes, it's a process. It's not at all like old fashioned polish that you wait for it to air dry. You really need the entire kit. Nail prep, base coat, the light to cure it, top coat and you can probably get away without the cleanser to set it as alcohol will probably do the trick. You have to time each layer and it will not dry until the final step of wiping it. Once you do that, it is completely dry. You could dig your hands in your bag and scrounge around for your keys without a worry of a dent, smudge or chip. No wait time at all. Only if it's done right. I felt bad when I read that review and felt I should say something here before more people are disappointed. If you follow all the instructions, this is a great product. This lasts for weeks but needs to be done right. Another reviewer suggested color charts. Initially, I thought it was a great idea. Unfortunately, I'm not sure you can trust the printer to get the colors correct. Have you ever picked up photos and the color is off? Same thing could happen with a chart so the color may not be an exact match as the ink used to print. I just thought I'd let people know to save them some aggravation. Hope it helps.
Also a longtime user (2 years!) and refreshed the basic kit just once! Fave colors, Cruella, Aristocrat, Spice up your life (darker side of Aristocrat - awesome neutral), Sapphired Up, Tutu, and now Bubbly for the holidays! Wonderful system for fingers and toes and I agree, lighter layers last longer!
Great additonal colors for the kit!
I received this entire SET as aTSV at least 2 years ago. This system is easy to use for those who cannot do their own nails....like me! These colors are fantastic, and the price is more reasonable than you thing since this lasts 2 weeks if the manicure is done properly.I have tried many colors,and my fave is still Mally's Baby- a soft and classy pale pink with SUBTLE hint of sparkle. A quick tip I learned was to use the bare, minimal amount of polish and the same goes for the base, primer, etc. This way your gel-mani lasts much longer. The first two times I used too much polish and the same went for other layers, so my nails were much too thick in appearance-my fault! ALso, the manicure did not last long since the thick layer peeled off which is my fault. BTW, I read a few reviews trying to find descriptions of new colors to buy ...and I noticed reviews stating, "this does not last longer than other polish," or "it doesn't dry quickly," which is not accurate at all. These polishes are not gel-like polishes, but they are REAL GEL POLISHES to be used w/ a gel system, and they DRY QUICKLY PLUS THEY DO LAST!! Lastly,just a gel-manicure safety tip- if you do not use Mally's amazing gel system, whether it be at home or in the salon, please make sure you only use LED light to cure the nail, which is what Mally's system uses. I have seen professional and at-home gel systems that use "UV light" instead of LED which is upsetting since UV light is unsafe. Mally's system uses LED light which is 100% safe!
Best GEL polish/kit for easy home use
Love the color choices of polish for the "at home kit", perfect GEL nails every time which lasts.
I LAUGHED when I read the reviews about the polish "not drying" or "not working"...DUH, its NOT regular polish that'll dry on its own. Buy the kit....IT WORKS saving you $25 to $40 for each gel manicure in the salon.
It is difficult to get an idea of the true color by looking at them online. It would be great if you could order a color chart with larger sample squares on it to judge by at home. Ideally one would have come with the original kit. Since it is quite an investment to start with!
I bought Mally's complete gel polish kit (with light) about six months ago. It is absolutely wonderful. Polish never stayed on me for more than a couple of days. Now, it is two weeks before I need to redo. My favorite shade is Mally's Baby - so pretty and natural, with a little sparkle. One thing I have discovered: less is more...if you put the base coat, polish, or top coat on thickly, it is possible that your nails will chip or peel. I use very little, and it lasts and lasts, looks beautiful, and really helps difficult nails grow out. Thank you, Mally - love your products.
There's more to this polish than meets the eye!
I purchased 3 of these polishes because I like Mally products and thought this would be great. What a surprise when I started applying the gel polish and it wouldn't dry. Now, I'm by no means stupid or naive, but after 2 tries and the polish wouldn't dry, I knew there was more to this. So, I did my research and found out that you need to buy the nail dryer ($65) in order for this polish to 'set.' No where on the description of the polish does it tell you this! It says to "cure" the polish for 60 seconds, when in actuality it should say that you need to purchase the nail dryer. So, after having had invested $45 on Mally gel polishes, I got the dryer. I'm waiting for it to arrive and I'm sure the other positive reviews will be true. The colors themselves are deep and beautiful, so I'm anticipating marvelous results.
I ordered Forever your girl and it is my new "go to" color! The perfect pink!!!
Caribbean Sea Is A Washout
The Caribbean Sea color is green as shown on the bottle, not blue as shown on the nail online. That was unpleasant surprise #1. Surprise #2, which was even more unpleasant, is that the polish is uneven and see through even after two coats. Granted, my nail tech and my stylist both told me to use "really thin" coats, so that may be just something I have to work out. Otherwise, the other colors I ordered were true to color, and I look forward to trying them out!
This color looks really good. It stays on really well with the mally system. It did not chip for at least two weeks.
We've been using Mally's kit since December, and absolutely love the results! So much better (and cleaner) than the salon. Just tried BackinaFuschia - my favorite yet! A great hot pink summer color - and also did my toes. Looks profesh! Btw - I still can't believe I'm reading that ladies are trying to use this polish without the lamp...you must have the lamp/kit to use the gel polish, or take it with you to your salon...PS..on Mally's website free shipping is offered and she carries all the nail products...have fun:)
