Mally 24/7 Professional 17pc Gel Nail Polish System
Would like to give no stars to this product
I had to return, had a nasty allergic reaction, I don't think any of this product line goes through very much allergy testing, couldn't find "hypo-allergenic" anywhere on the instructions or packaging. My suggestion would be to avoid if you have chemical sensitivities. The product doesn't set as quickly as professionally done nails either.
I'm so happy I ended up taking the leap & buying this. I bought this quite awhile ago & I love that everything is included that you need. The steps are easy & I no longer go to a salon! I like doing it my own home, my daughter loves it & my sister in law now loves it too! My sister in law always does her nails when she comes over. She wants to get one now also.;) It was getting expensive going to a salon & where I went she always cut me. And now I can do it myself & it looks beautiful! I just recently tried on my toes...AWESOME!!!
I am so impressed by this system. I travel a lot, and I like to keep my nails looking nice. However, keeping regular nail polish intact for more than 3-4 days is difficult, and traveling with polish is difficult (spills, etc.) Also, my nails tend to chip, bend and split, and regular nail polish didn't seem to help. Since getting Mally's system, I can't tell you how nice my nails look! Not only that, they look perfect for two weeks - and only then need to be redone because they have grown out, not chipped off! I recently returned from a vacation in Puerto Rico - in the pool and ocean every day - and my nails looked as nice when I got home as when I left! This does take considerably longer to remove and reapply than regular polish, but it is soooo worth it! I really love, love, love it, and would recommend to anyone who is sick of applying regular polish and fighting chips a day or two later! Thank you, Mally.
I used to despise painting my nails, and I never had the money or the patience to sit for manicures. I'd gotten "gel" manicures a few times in my life, and I loved them, but not enough to go out of my way to get them. I always wondered why I couldn't just use "gel" at home, instead of nail polish, because I used to get the Gels on my real nails, without long extensions. When I saw these kits becoming popular I was skeptical. Not of the products, but of my own ability to give myself a decent manicure. Regular nail polish lasts, if I'm lucky, one evening. Between my gardening, and just plain being rough on my hands, there hasn't been a nail polish that survived my fingers. I bought an inexpensive Gel "kit" at the drugstore prior to purchasing this one, just to see if I'd be able to create an acceptable look with this polish. I couldn't believe how beautiful it looked, and how completely professional! People even complimented my nails! However, the "inexpensive" products began coming off my nails within 24 hours...not kidding. I hadn't even done any work with my hands, yet by evening the following day, two nails and two toenail were devoid of polish.
So I bought Mally's high quality kit. The babies last. Really last. They aren't hard to remove, but removal is by far the most time-consuming part of this type of manicure. Since these nails last 3-4 weeks, it doesn't bother me at all! The longer they're left on, the easier they are to remove. At first I removed them fairly regularly because I wanted to try all the different colors. For the first time I enjoy my nails! Now I leave them on, and I can't imagine having my old, ugly, dull nails ever again. This is absolutely the best Gel kit around, and the price is great considering it INCLUDES the LED light AND polishes! No other gel kits are this complete, so overall some wind up being more costly than this one. This one is not only a great value, it's so darned pretty. I've seen some icky-looking LED lights, but this one looks good enough to leave out on my vanity. I love this kit and I recommend it to anyone who manicures that last a long time. If you switch your polish often, this may be a pain in the neck. It's perfect for me.
Not horrible, but not great
First of all, let me preface this review by saying I am not the most patient person and do not consider doing my nails a treat, but rather a chore. The first application, I flew through the process and the end results were not great, understandably so.The next time around, I followed the directions to the letter, but still wasn't impressed with the resuls. I've had this set now for 5 months and I can't say I'm 100% pleased. While overall, the polish stays on for a longer period of time, I still experience chipping and flaking around the edges despite using all the tips and tricks provided. Also, it is extremely time consuming to remove and I'm concerned the process is damaging my nails. The polish does not apply smoothly and I find with the darker shades(and yes I purchased additional colors) they go on very faint. The more I layer, the more polish comes off during the final wipe down. I tried applying a third coat, but it was too thick and peeled off. All in all, I'll continue to use the set but considering the price up front and the cost of the polish and replacement components as well as ongoing application issues, not sure it's that great of a value overall.
I was skeptical to purchase this, but now that I tried it, I'm so glad I made the investment. I did my nails in about one hour and they look amazing. Now that I did it, I see that it's pretty much fool proof. If you could have seen the hot mess home manicure I removed before I used this kit, you would see it was so worth the money. It will definitely pay for itself in just a few visits. I am an arts and crafts person, a sugar cookie artisan, a knitter, and a drummer -- I love working with my hands and they take phenomenal abuse. Mally's kit ensures I won't have to be ashamed of what I think is my worst feature. My last salon manicure and pedicure was nearly 3 hours (with travel), and I ruined it within 10 minutes after I left (not a gel manicure.) So thrilled I can watch my favorite show with a cup of tea, relax at home and do it myself. The reason for 4 and not 5 stars is that I don't like all the colors, even though she and I have the same ethnic coloring (Aristocrat is a nice neutral on darker skin.) Mally, darlin', can you please offer kits with a choice of color combo? Love her enthusiasm and energy!!
Follow the instructions; it works!
I was very skeptical to buy this, but I followed the instructions to a tee, and after 6 days now, no chips!! I always chip in 2 days with regular polish. My nails look beautiful. I am nervous about the takeoff, but will follow what Mally says to do. This will pay for itself after 6 uses!!
Better than expected
This kit is amazing! It is so easy to use and I get a professional looking manicure every time!
WOW and WOW
The gel kit is amazing for 1st timers, people get shocked knowing I did this myself . I followed every single step and I bought an elf concealer brush to remove polish from my sides of my nail and it worked wonders. To those who put negative reviews you have to follow each step, It will work I even used another gel polish with it(IBD gel polish)it cured to a perfect finish..... Thin coats at a time it will all come together.. I was skeptical in buying this product for the price , but it is so worth my loves :)
Love this product, it works great. For anyone having problems just go and look in a mirror and there is the problem. Keep the great products coming Mally!
This nail kit is exceptional. I am a hairdresser in Louisiana . I have had trouble keeping polish on my nails because my hands are always in water. This polish stays on your nails for two weeks like it says. Finally I can polish my nails and not worry about them chipping off and looking horrible.
Thanks Mally for a great product.
quantity too small
Great set, but the bottles are way too small especially the nail polish, by the time I do my nails and my daughters it is going to be gone, for almost two hundred dallors, Mally we need larger bottles. Other wise. I love it. ARE YOU GOING. TO DO SOMETHING.
