If my natural nails were in better shape these would have looked great. I've been buying the complete coverage artificial nails. This is the first time I've tried tips in a while. I had acrylic on my nails for around 12 years and they have been free from just about everything for the last 10. But they don't get very long and aren't very strong and my husband always comments that I should "treat myself to manicures", like anyone has time for that! I've tried everything under the sun and this kit, by far, is the easiest. Especially for the cost. I don't polish my nails very often so this is something I would like to be able to do without paying $40-60 at a salon. In the past, I've let the directions intimidate me and didn't want to spend the money on the UV lights unless I knew I could actually do them myself.
There are two complete sets, one French and one natural. I put on all the tips and then did my right hand first, more or less, one finger at a time so the neither the activator nor the gel would dry in between. When I try this again, I will file the ridge a little more, and pay closer attention to that area. It says you don't have to file because the gel is self leveling, which is true. But unless you have perfect nails, the edge will be wider or as in my case, my natural nail is more curved on some fingers than others so the corners are lifted.
Overall, I was very pleased with the results and will buy this again.
