I can do this myself and it's not expensive. Going on like any polish and coming off the same way. It doesn't dry my nails and make them brittle like other wrap and acrylic polishes. I put it over my colors as a topcoat, or by itself. I haven't tried the colors yet. My hands are in water a lot on occasions and I wrap it over the tips so water won't get in . It's also cheaper than Walgreens.
