I'm thinking that the ONLY person in this thread that rated this product a "5" must either work for Deborah Lippmann, or she got the ONLY good set on the planet. Regardless, this was a colossal rip-off for me. I paid $45 for the Gel Lab Pro base and top coat, and both times I used it was an epic fail. You live and you learn: Expensive doesn't always mean better. Both times I …Read more

This nail polish is advertised as a substitute for gel nails. It's supposed to last longer than regular nail polish and not chip. I just tried two different shades, one regular and one sparkly, at Sephora - both shades rubbed off around the edges of my nails the very next day! Typically, nail polish on my hands lasts around 3 days without chipping so this is really poor performance for …Read more

Unfortunately this product has nothing to do with it's names meaning or what do we usually expect from gels. It chips and peels easily, it doesn't last long even on toes. While my pedicure usually just grows out, now I really have to change my toe polish every 10 days... Disappointment.

After using this product with different nail polishes and playing with the thickness I've concluded that this while nice, is not durable. My nails chip and peel very easily. The top coat shines like justice, but I don't need shiny chipped nails. I associate gel manicures with longevity and a hardening effect to the nails. I had expected more and love Deborah Lippmann

This is touted as the healthy alternative to gel manicures. I have stopped getting gels because they thin out your natural nail and make them weak and prone to breakage. This looks nice when you put in on, but I think gel-like is a stretch. It's shiny but no more so than any other top coat. But here's what really bothers me about this product, it says it will extend the wear of your …Read more

This is a holy grail nail polish top coat for me. It extends my nail polish significantly, while maintaining it super shiny. Take into consideration that this is only from the use of the TOP coat. I purchased the duo but only used the top coat because I was in a hurry. I'm sure that if I used both the base & top coat that it would extend my polish even longer and keep it even shinier …Read more

I paid 45.00 for this, which breaks down to 22.50 each for a top coat and base coat. Sadly, the price was the only thing that was epic about this combo. I followed directions exactly as written and also consulted the website for more information and followed the tutorial.
I had minor chipping the next day and major chipping by day 2. Absolutely unacceptable at this price point. I've …

Not impressed with this product. I love Deborah Lippmann polishes but I don't find her Gel Lab being a success. It is expensive and my nail polish did not last any longer with this product despite following the application instructions to the T. As a matter of fact the topcoat would began to peel off after 3 days. I gave this product 2 stars because the feel of your freshly polished nails …Read more

So I tried DL gel lab and was underwhelmed. I find it did not extend the usual wear of my nail polish compared to my usual base coat (Orly bonder) and top coat (Seche Vite). However both the gel base and gel top coat apply easily. Dry relatively quickly. Nice high gloss finish, but again I feel I get the same results if my usual products which are half the cost. I just think it's way …Read more

At $45 US for a top and base coat, this is certainly not a cheap set. But my love for all products Deborah Lippmann, the promise of "healthy" gel nails, and a store discount enticed me to make the investment. I have since tried this set on three separate occasions, very carefully following the instructions and using Lippmann polishes only. The result? I find this top and base coat …Read more
