Completely useless. It took me 3 hours to remove my gel nails. The first nail took about 40 minutes, after that i had to just wrap all fingers in soaked cotton balls with this liquid, though you're not supposed to do it. But if i didn't, it would probably take me all night. They have a "satisfaction guarantee"claim on the packaging - don't believe it. I reached out to them regarding shipping options for the return, after 4 days, still no answer. Complete hoax!

I made many mistakes with this product in the beginning! However, after learning from my mistakes I have come to fall in love. I will tell you that I started out purchasing the lamp by itself with lovely leechee.
This color was too transparent & after reading the directions “in the box” I discovered I was also supposed to use the special primer,. My nails lifted & peeked the very next day. I had read The glowing reviews and was determined I could make this work.
The NEXT weekend (lol) I went to Target & purchased the printer for 3$ & picked up “made me blush” “express gel”.
YUCK! The post was so thick and gooey I could not get it to a thin consistency no matter how much I shook the bottle. I read some more of the reviews and discovered I also needed to purchase the base and topcoat and the gel cleanser.
The FOLLOWING weekend I went out and purchased the gel cleanser, base and topcoat at Walmart. All for about 17$. I spotted and fell in love with the midnight rendezvous and picked that up as well. I was hoping that the “express” was the nature of the “made me blush” nightmare.
Thank God, finally! What a blessing! I love this kid! Gorgeous manicure, very shiny and I hope it lasts a while. If you’re having problems make sure that you watch the videos and purchase the Entire kit as a whole or the primer with base and topcoat separately along with the lamp. It’s worth it.

I started out using the Nailene Salon nails, glue on nails after my nails became extremely weak from one application of CND Shellac from a nail salon (they filed my nail beds down way too much!). I found because I’ve got flat nail beds that I needed to by the thinner more flexible range of Nailene Nails - the Ultra Flex. Unfortunately these come in only one colour and two lengths, medium and short. As a Remedial Massage Therapist I need to keep my nails relatively short else I pinch or scratch clients. I found using the Nailene Ultra Quick Glue helped my nails last up to 10 days, usually just needed to re-glue my thumb nails once or twice due to my flat nail beds. I got lots of compliments on my nails with most people thinking I’d had acrylic done. I wouldn’t bother using the adhesive stickers that come in the kit for anything but one day wear if you want a quick glamour look for a night out, they certainly don’t stay on when I’m contact with massage oil!

I am loving this gel transformer kit! I've been using a lot of no-lamp "gel" polishes lately, and they have not been holding up to my current routine. I was tired of doing my nails every couple of days. I'd been eyeing the Nailene sensationail coloured polish sets for a while, but didn't want to lose the great shade range regular polishes I have. The transformer kit was on sale for $38, so I took a rare blind leap and bought it. The kit has a black bottle of clear gel polish, a tiny bottle of alcohol, a primer, an orange wood stick, a tiny led lamp that plugs in, and a lint free wipe (which my kit was missing, boo). You can buy refills of everything, although I'll be buying just regular rubbing alcohol. I haven't tried the sandwiching method yet, I've only done the mixing method, one with cnd vinylux and one with my old favorite rimmel lasting finish (that was getting goopy, it was a last hurrah). Both have lasted well over a week, with the tiniest chip only on my thumb. Very minor tip wear, still shiny and beautiful. A couple of nails have micro cracks from my nail bending, but it's only noticeable when I get up close. My nails have grown out and are getting too long for my taste. I have done a ton of cleaning, hand washing dishes, laundry, swimming, and playing Lego with my daughter (prying the tiny pieces apart is usually death on my manis). This is incredible. My picture is of the second mani I did using the Rimmel polish (orangey red), grown out and still basically perfect after 9 days. Clean up cuticles, file nails, wipe off with alcohol, and apply primer. While that dries, mix 6 drops of regular polish, 6 of the clear transformer. Apply a thin coat of the polish mix, cure for 60 seconds, apply another thin coat, cure for 60 sec., and then do a coat of just the clear, and I cure for 60 sec. Then clean the stickiness off with rubbing alcohol on a piece of paper towel. Rock solid and keeps my nails from breaking. I'm really pleased with my new new nail routine, highly recommend and happy I don't have to reinvest in new gel polishes. 100% will buy (the refill) again!

Inexpensive nail glue for use with artificial tip sets. Must be soaked off in pure acetone. Be careful and don't use too much nor too little or bubbles can form.
