Bought the starter kit with pink chiffon. The color is a very wearable and pretty pale pink. Worked in VERY thin coats since I hate messy/thick looking gel polish. Took 3 coats to opacity and was very easy to work with. The color itself is very soft and pretty, almost a nude pink and is a color I would have bought in regular polish. I think I will get a little bored of it before it wears off (if this stuff lasts as long as it says it will) but I really do love it and it was my favorite option out of the starter kit colors (the rasperry wine looked too red for me).
Will update if it lasts. Easy to apply as long as you have a steady hand and enough experience with regular polishes. Don't forget to wipe clean with the cleanser - takes the tackyness away and is a MUST for any gel polish. If you aren't very skilled with regular polishes I would not recommend starting gel polish since neatness and very thin coats are key!

So I am writing this review and also hoping to get some answers to questions, that i have as well :) I am a NEW user of the gel manis & must say that so far i LOVE them! I had one done in the salon and i was pretty impressed, then that gave me the idea to try doing them on my own. A couple days later, i bought the Sensationail starter kit and WOW! i did great and it was all done BY ME. SOLD!!! lol. But this particular color itself, was a bit sheer for my tastes. It says 2 coats, which i was unhappy with the outcome. It was a bit streaky i found. Can a 3rd coat be done? or not? i didn't dare try as i didn't want to mess up the process-as it seems to be pretty strict on what is needing to be done & how, ect... But feel like a 3rd coat, would have been what was needed to make it PERFECT. Other than that, what a great system! HIGHLY RECOMMEND XOXO
Can u ladies help me with a few additional questions, that i have about Gel mani's- in general possibly?
Here they are!:
1) Since i have all the fixens for the Sensationail kit, like their top coat, base, their light, ect,..
BUT Am I able to buy just a different polish?-as long as it is a gel one? If so, what is another good brand to try out?
I ask this b.c. this brand seems to have such a limited color selection it appeared... :(
2) Is a 3rd coat ok to do? i have 2 polishes from this brand, & each says only to apply 2 coats?
3)Are these removal wraps really worth it? and what all do they entail?
i bought that metal removal tool and didn't find it to be that much more helpful, that the wooden stick that was provided!
Also, what is the orange stick that everyone keeps mentioning on here?
4) Can you use this system on your toes too?> or just hands?
5) Is there a better/bigger curing light? and if so (& if it happens to be a different brand), can i use all of my current Sensational products,with this new light or doesn't it matter?
6) hand designs.... i wanna do some and was told that you can use normal (non-gel) polish for this & that it will NOT effect the gel mani in any way? is this true?
how do i remove that? what type of nail polish remover is needed? acetone still?
any good sites to check out? im looking for something SIMPLE & EASY ONLY LOL
I know that this is quite the list of questions BUT any help would BE GREATLY APPRICIATED FROM U LADIES OUT THERE!
Hope to hear feedback soon! Thanks soo much....:)

I thought the color was a bit streaky and it chipped easily. It was my first time applying it though. I do love the Sensationail kit thought! And bought a ton of colors. I look forward to trying out and reviewing the rest of them.

I got this colour with the initial LED lamp purchase, and I'm happy with the colour! It's soft and the pastel colour made practicing putting on gel polish less disastrous than the scarlet red or raspberry wine that I might stain my cuticles with.
It doesn't really show in pictures, but the colour might be a little too sheer - you can see the whites of my nail after 2 coats, and some of them don't have a full coverage (look streaky).
The gel polish itself is fine, but I probably won't buy this colour again bc I'm hooked on Pink Daisy.

I use this with Gelish base coat and top coat because it makes it easier to remove and wears fabulously so this review is based on the color only.
Chiffon Pink is a GORGEOUS, absolutely perfect (for me) pastel pink. It's not too light and not to dark and best of all it doesn't make my nails look dirty as it grows out like some pinks do. I am fair-medium with cool undertones. I do get a bit of a tan on my hands because I drive a convertible & am remiss in putting sunscreen on my hands, (sadly they are paying the price) and this colour looks good - not tacky or what I call Snooki-ish. I have gotten many compliments on this...more than on any of the other gazillion high and low end regular (not gel) polishes I own. After hunting for years for the perfect pink I found it. It goes on beautifully but I do prefer three coats. It has no shimmer. The Gelish top coat makes it look like glass. Love it!
