    Pros: This product is very easy to use -- just follow the instructions. Yes they DO stay shiny and don't chip for two weeks like I've read, but had a hard time believing, until I used them myself. I have natural nails and could not get regular polish to stick for more than a day or two before chipping and losing its shine. This gel polish does NOT chip or lose its shine. I am an active mom and part time nurse, and so wash my hands MANY times per day. I also love that the product is completely dry and hard immediately afterward -- I simply do not have time to sit around long enough for polish to dry. I always found it hard to grow my nails out to all the same length at the same time (without several coats of polish for which I did not have time). I have been wearing gel polish now for 5 months straight and have not broken a nail in that time -- unheard of for me.
    Cons: The only downside is gel polish is VERY difficult to remove without removing part of the surface of your nail with it. My solution: I don't remove it. I trim/file my nails every 1-2 weeks and backfill the outgrown areas (or occasionally a spot that lifts and I peel off). I then re-coat the cut ends and put a new layer on top. Works like a charm. So what if the tips have thicker polish than the bases (especially if you only use clear as I do), it just makes them stronger. Love this product.

    Set is nice except the lamp does not work. I used it one time with great success then the next time I plugged it in it was dead. I replaced the cord with another of the same voltage and amperage and it comes on but flickers and does not dry nails in the usual time. I'm very disappointed with it. The polish is really good and lasts well once I get it cured.

    Comments about Sensationail Gel Polish Starter Kit, Pink Chiffon, 1 kit:

    Starter Kit is absolutely a bargain, easy instructions and easy to use even for a novice like me. I paid from $35 to $45 to get gel polish at the salon. The only recommendation would be to use 3 coats of polish if you are using a light color polish, do not forget to smooth your nail surface to get a smooth texture. The only down fall is removing the polish, the hard acetone made my nails weak, I think I used too much, need to find a better method. I do not recommend to used continously, let your nail breathe every so often. The starter kits makes excellent gifts.

    Sensational gel manicure last three whole weeks, its easy and fun to do. I put regular nail polish on top of the gel polish two weeks in just to change things up, when I removed the regular polish 3 days later the gel polish remained perfect underneath. I also tried the base/top coat with regular nail polish, it lasted two weeks and 2 days. SENSATIONAIL IS A GREAT VALUE AND IS WORTH EVERY PENNY OF ITS PURCHASE PRICE.

      Don't be fooled, this is not an "on the go" process. The lamp doesn't seem to be warm enough. Other than that, this gel polish set is an excellent alternative to salon gel manicures, about the cost of 2 manicures. The gel polish that comes with this set is a much better product than Nutranail.

            I was skeptical to buy this product, considering the price. But after reading the other reviews I took a chance, and I have been amazed at the results. It does take a few times before you get used to how to apply, but if you have ever gone to the salon and watched them that is helpful. Nails look the same as the salon and last the same amount of time (about 2 weeks). I have bought a few more colors to go along and they all look wonderful.

                  Comments about Sensationail Gel Polish Starter Kit, Pink Chiffon, 1 kit:

                  I should have viewed the videos that were on the products website before applying as it would have made it easier for me to understand the directions. However, even without doing so, the product was pretty easy to apply for the first time. I'm sure it will get easier as I continue to work with the product.

                  I did have a difficult time not getting the glue/polish on my skin since I have short nails so will have nail polish remover and a cotton swab available for try #2.

                  I would reccommend this product and am looking forward to trying some different colors out.

                  Very good set! It's easy to follow the instruction and create beautiful nails. But it's hard to take it off and the remove in the package is really small.
