Perfect Formula Pink Gel Coat & Gel Coat Color 5pc Strong Nail Collection
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.
I have been using this and it's great! I guess different strokes! But I love this product!
SAVED MY DAMAGED NAILS
After having acrylics for years, my nails were a disaster. Splitting, breaking, peeling, etc... Now my nails are the strongest they've ever been! You have to follow the directions closely for I would say two-three months, but it's WORTH IT! The more time that goes by your nails will be strong enough to get into a routine you are comfortable with. Make sure to put the lid on tightly to avoid drying out. I've been using PF for years now, I cannot live without it!
It Was Ok
Nail polish started peeling after 2nd day and also the nail polish dry up like a rock after a month.
TRIED THIS TWICE
i purchased Perfect Formula twice and I'm sorry but I found it to be no better than any other nail product that claims to do the same thing. Just my opinion - but I won't be buying the high priced nail products any more.
Do not purchase this product!
Purchased this product and was so hoping to help my nails but after using the product as instructed my nails were worse than ever! It has been over two months and my nails are just starting to get halfway back to normal. After two weeks of using the product per instructions my nails started cracking and peeling , breaking off and were the worst they have ever been- wish I had never purchased this and as far as I am concerned QVC should no longer carry this line!
Best Nail Product EVER!!
I'm shocked at all the previous reviews :( I too have been on the search for
a nail product to help my nails recover from years & years of wearing 'acrylics'.
Immediately, I noticed an improvement in my NAILS!! I followed the instructions
to the letter....and noticed my nails looking & feeling better each day I kept
following the directions! Ladies...you also need to moisturize your hands/cuticles
& wear some type of rubber gloves while doing dishes or your household chores.
In addition....use a gentle nail polish remover weekly & reapply another weekly
treatment using 2 thin coats!!! I love this product so much! You may apply a fav
nail polish on top: This manicure will give you strong nails for a long time.
BUT you must follow the care instructions weekly...be patient...real natural
nails take time to return strong & healthy....you are gonna love 'em!!!
My nails are peeling and breaking even more than before. I really wanted it to work. It starts chipping within hours of applying.
