Perfect Formula Pink Gel Coat & Gel Coat Color 5pc Strong Nail Collection
I do not understanding the reviews that state the polish does not last and chips. I have used this product for sometime now with great results. I went off the acrylics quite a while ago and this product helped me to get through the regrowth period. I now have strong and fast growing nails. I just took off the red that I used for a Valentines Day dinner and dance. I had it on for over a week. The red is a perfect red. You need to put on the clear coat first then 2-3 color and then a top coat of your choice. These are fast drying. Don't forget to seal by coating the very tip of the nail. I got this set as a xmas present from my girlfriend per my request. Try this. You won't be sorry.
Fooled my nail tech!
After 10 days of wear, I went for my monthly manicure for shaping and cuticle treatment. My nail tech was convinced I had them done professionally and that it was a nail gel!
I already have healthy nails--nothing artificial. I wanted this because it promotes healthy nails AND dries quick AND looks like gel but isn't. This product did all of this.
Application was so easy and quick. I love the new taupe color in this set. The file was nice and gentle which makes it easier for me to shape my nails.
Do to health issues my nails have become very thin, breaking and did not look healthy. Since I've started using this product my nails have gotten very strong and looking great. I have followed the directions to the "t" taking it off and then putting on new every week. I love this product
Waste Of Money!
Sorry, but I have used this for three months. My nail are the same. The grow a tiny bit then break. I always keep the polish on for a week then take it off. Start again.... Nothing has changed with my nail. This is so expensive to buy and it does not work ,
I loved it !
But expected all different colors
2 of them
looked identical even though they were different colors.
it was the 2 of the lighter colors.
i used it all though i loved them.
Miracle for Your Nails
I can't live without this product. Ok, I can, but I don't want to. I put this on my nails and within 1 - 2 weeks they've grown to a very nice length. With out it my nails chip and don't grow very fast. So, once a week, I'm removing the old coat and putting on a new coat and my nails always look beautiful and they're strong. Awesome product!
To begin with, my nails are not horrible. I have pretty much been able to get them to grow. However, periodically they would break and it was always way down below the nail base line. Also, recently I have been experiencing splinting on a couple of nails that has been preventing them from getting long. Nothing I used worked to protect those nails from the splinting till this product. It is so easy to use and has kept the splitting in check.
perfect formula nail collection - worst purchase
I have used the pink nail gel for about 1-2 months now. Every single one of my nails have split and peeled since using this product. They are very short and look horrible. I have never had this problem before using this nail gel. Definitely not worth it. I am now waiting for my nails to grow out normally.
Not what is claimed!
This did not work. I have very brittle nails, and they are just like they have always been, except they have polish on them. I like the color, but the claim it helps with brittle nails is not true in my case.
My nails grew but we're still brittle. I was disappointed by how expensive this was and that my nails still peeled.
First of all let me start by saying I had acrylic nail for over 15 years and in September I soaked them off refusing to be a slave to the nail salon anymore.
UGH!! my nails were weak, brittle and down right embarrassing.
I have seen this product advertised on QVC for years but having acrylic nail i really never paid any attention to it. But after trying all the store gimmicks for brittle nails. I gave up. Lotions, oil and potions weren't doing anything for my weak splitting nails.
I thought what do I have to lose? I can return this item if it doesn't work.
2 weeks later, (not kidding) I saw improvement! My nails were harder and the splitting stopped. I am now well in 3 months of use and my nails are great! I just have this set to my 87 year old Mother who had weak splitting nails. She loved the pink gel coat because it makes her nails look like she had a french manicure and she can do this herself.
We are both so happy with this product we can't say enough about it.
I also found that this lasts 7-9 days no chipping. I will say I also have the red gel coat and I did find that the red chips and lasts on 5-7 days. But red has always been a hard nail polish color to make last for some reason. But all other colors last 7-9 days.
Average is accurate
I was really excited about this product. Had been watching it for a long time, especially hopeful about reclaiming my nails that used to naturally grow very long, but now split before they can grow. Filing with the standard store files makes a mess of my nails, so I really had my eye on both the gel coat and nail file. The gel coats are average. Per the instructions you have to do your manicure weekly to be effective. I don't know about you, but my goal with a manicure is to extend the wear and get two weeks out of it. No, no cannot do. If you want to get the "benefits" of the gel coat you must apply a new base coat weekly. Regarding the colors (beauty in the eye of the reviewer) the two larger sizes are good; you can't go wrong with clear and the Pink Gel Coat is a clear with a very sheer neon type pink under-tint meant to cut any yellowing of your nail. Both are utilitarian but I have not experienced the before and after shown in the photo's, and continue to have splitting and breakage. The Powder Pink shade (small) is o.k., to be opaque you will need to apply three coats. I never have but it would be a cute summer shade, totally neutral. The throw away shade, for me, Classic Red, it is not red at all it is Persimmon, a pretty fruit in a bowl but a hideous color. It isn't a tomato red it is orange. Red is very personal, I absolutely think including it in a kit is unfair to us, it would be much better to include their Taupe or another neutral. My classic red went into the trash. The nail file is nicer than what you find at your local Beauty Supply or Drug Store. Don't do what I did, think that you will file the nail instead of trim it with clippers; that created splitting in nails that never split before! Honestly, I think the nail file is the best part of the kit. I've been using it for about 4 months still have short nails.
