This was the best purchase ever. With regular or even gel polish my nails chip within 1-2 days. These lasted almost 3 weeks. And honestly could've lasted longer, but I took off cause I was ready for a change. Disclaimer... I did not use the gel polish that came with it. I used a regular GEL top coat from Sally's that did not require a light. Then I would apply a regular top coat every other day or 3rd day and they were great. I did have a little fading on the tip of my nails from rubbing and tapping on a keyboard at work all day. But honestly no one noticed it but me. And if it got too bad I just took one of the extra strips and reapplied it to the part that had come off. I LOVE THESE GEL STRIPS!!!! They are way better than the more expensive $15 a set JAMBERRY nail strips by far!!!!

BEST PURCHASE EVER!!!
Love this product!!
I love the Sally Hansen insta gel strips!! They are very easy to use and they last for a long time. If you take your time and follow the instructions they will stay on way longer than 2 weeks. Just a few tips; You really have to make sure your nails are super clean, I always make sure I clean my nails really good with nail polish remover, even if you didn't have polish on them beforehand. The natural oils on your nails will make the strips not stick as well. And make sure you don't get the gel polish on your skin! It hurts trying to get it off after it dries. They definitely last longer than regular polish but not as long as getting acrylics.
Great option for at home gel manicure!
I love love love this product... The nails look great I can do them on my own time and even better then the salon because I am super careful with my cuticle... The lady that said that it never dried on her... I thought the same thing but if you use the towelettes they give you right after the cure time... Do not touch them just use the towlettes right after cure it takes away the feel of not completely dry then right after that they are dry and super shiny... Such an amazing idea! I can't wait to try lots of driffrent colors I started just with the simple kit... Shall we dance.. :D love it! follow intructions people! It does not say touch it after cure it it says use the towlette..
I had bought these right after I had taken off my acrylics and obviously my nails still had glue on them and peeled right off:( but Im sure if my nails were cleaner they wouldve stayed on longer. I had them on for about 4 or 5 days and they looked great but some chipping (then Gin probably from my nails not being clean enough). I think they were very easy to apply and were very shiny! But a bit pricey! I would definetly buy refils and reccomend this product. I had read another review about a lady said that her gel polish didnt dry and it stayed tacky even after putting it under the light, and i myself had the same problem, then i read the instructions and it says to use the cleanser pad to wipe off any of the tacky residue. In all i will buy again and i reccomend it!
Doesn't exactly harden as described
Because I'm too cheap to pay for a salon visit every 2 weeks to have gel nails done, I decided to try this product. I'm no stranger to the Sally Hansen dry nail polish strips; they work great, so I thought the added layer of gel cure with the LED light would be great. I followed the directions exactly, shaking the clear top coat vigorously before each nail and it still didn't dry, even after two hours under repeated LED cycles, cold water and a cool hair dryer. I finally put a clear top coat of regular polish on top of it, did one more cycle of LED light, and then it cured! Now that I know that, I won't waste two hours on it again. I'm excited to try othe colors. I'll have to update or write another review when it's time to take this coat of gel polish off.
