DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT. DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT. DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT. IF I COULD GIVE IT A 0 AS A RATING, THAT IS WHAT IT WOULD GET. I began using this product hoping to achieve the long nails I had right after I removed my acrylics, because my nails have been very thin as of late. They would not grow, broke very easily, etc. I put this on the first night, and it BURNED. My nail beds actually burned, not a tingly feeling, a BURNING feeling. It was very unpleasant, but bearable. I left it on though, and after about forty-five minutes it subsided. The stuff actually chipped THAT NIGHT and looked horrible, mainly because it's a very light pink color, so it was obvious it had chipped, and it really just made it look like I had some sort of nail disease. But other than that, it was fine after the burning. A couple of days later I decide to take it off and repaint it, since the box says to apply two times a week, I decided that this would be my second time. BIG MISTAKE. I removed it and put another coat on. The burning happened again, only this time it became unbearable. I had to remove it. When I did, my nails were STILL burning. They were weak, thin, and there had been no improvement, but how could there be if the stuff was too painful to even leave on?? It's been about five days since the first time I applied Nail Magic to my nails. It has been off since last night. My nail beds are RED. The end of one of my nails is way way way too far down past the skin. It doesn't look like a nail, it looks like skin. It hurts to touch things/ apply pressure to things with my fingers. My nails are continuing to break. I'm really worried about the red nail beds, though. I don't know what to do about any of this, and am going to see my manicurist tomorrow to see if he knows what it is/ how to remedy it/ if I should go see a doctor. PLEASE, DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.

Let me start out by saying my skin is ridiculously oily. With any other foundation, I can literally wipe my finger across my face and there it will be covered with oil and whatever foundation I had on that day. Not the case with this, though. It lasts longer than any foundation I have tried for my oily skin. It gives a very matte finish and the coverage is amazing. It looks natural. As other reviewers have said, it does tend to make my cheeks a little flaky, but that is easily remedied by moisturizing them before application. I would definitely purchase this again. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed!
