    This stuff is AMAZING! I bought it at WalMart for about $3.50 and it works like a dream. I had given up polishing my nails because they wouldn't last more than a day, and gel nails were just too expensive to maintain. Used 3 Minute and I'm thrilled: I'm on day 3 and they still look great, almost as good as gel nails. Fabulous product! Thinking of investing in their stock because when word gets out, look out.

    This is the best base coat ever! I love it so much that I never have less than 3 back up bottles stocked. I have been using it for over 6 months and it is the secret to my success. I use 2 coats of this as my base for every manicure, 1-3 coats of color, fast dry top coat and done. This adds a thin yet strong layer to my nails which keeps them from breaking. My color sticks like glue to it so my manis last forever without chipping. The longest I've gone with a mani is 5 days but that's only because I got bored with it (I usually do my nails every day or two). I have never experienced any damage or staining from the product. I really can't say enough great things about 3 minute Artificials! Attached picture is the length that I have currently achieved.

    My nails are (were!) dry and want to peel and split. I have used this for 3 weeks, applying one coat each week. I remove the polish on the weekend, let my nails 'breathe' a day and then reapply. I have noticed that my real nails seem thicker and there seems to be less 'grooving' showing, even without polish. The polish has a very light pink tint to it, so it makes your nails look healthy and clean, not really 'colored.' I remove this with non-acetone remover and a cotton ball and it comes off fast and easy. Would definitely recommend!

    How do you remove this product? Does the gel hardener damage natural nails? What color is it?
    by Sally 10/1/2013
    • After 6 days of wearing product there was no damage to my natural nails. I took the polish off with regular asatone nail polish remover and a cotton ball...It took a little bit of time (but I also had glitter on) The color looks pink but it is actually clear and goes on clear. I had this on for 6 days with no chipping and it gives a really nice shine to the final coat!

    • You are supposed to be able to remove it with nail polish remover and it is not supposed to damage your nails. However, my experience was that it did not come of with nail polish remover (non acetone or acetone) and it did damage my nails. My nails where dry and brittle and broke occasionally but now they peel and polish won't stay on them for more than a day. I made a full review of the product if you would like to read it for more details. Also it goes on clear.

    • Regular acetone nail polish remover. Comes right off. Does not damage nails. This is my experience.

    • It comes off easily with regular nail polish remover, nothing like gel nails. It is clear, and it hasn't damaged my nalls. It's just like a top or base coat except that it is much better. I am getting a full week out of a manicure, when I formerly got only about 3 days. I think it's pretty amazing stuff.

    • Use regular nail polish remover (acetone or non-acetone). There's no damage at all. It's a clear pink polish, no real color to it once it's on, but it would work well for a French nail base.

    • I use a cotton ball and non-acetone remover. It comes off fast and easy! I've used this for 3 weeks, and have not noticed any damage or discoloration to my natural nails. My nails have only benefited from this product! The color is light pink in the bottle, but goes on clear. It makes your nails look very clean and healthy - but not really 'pink.'
