Absolutely. I only got the free Sephora nail polish included with this kit, and bought several other brands, including Gelish, Sensationail, and whatever I picked up at Shoppers in Ontario, and they all work beautifully with this system.

Question
can you use salon grade OPI gel color polish?
I have access to purchase OPI products at a beauty supply house and am having trouble with my system. I am using the OPI gel polish from there and did not recieve the polish with my system. I have been VERY disappointed with my system. I get even more discouraged when I read all the rave reviews! I have been getting professional gel coats for a while and was trying to save myself some time. Please help.... and how do I get the polish I should have recieved with my intial purchase.

thank you for your time in this matter.

I checked the OPI website, and their regular line is pretty responsible, so I assume their Sephora line is as well.

PETA's response in Feb 2011 after the buyout by Coty: ' We are very pleased to report that PETA has received written confirmation from OPI assuring us that its animal-testing policy will not change and that its products will remain cruelty-free. We feel that it’s imperative for consumers to continue buying OPI products in order to support the company’s anti-testing stance and to show parent companies that the market for cruelty-free products is huge.'

Tough question..Personally, I never give my nails a break and they do fine like that. I think that as long as you are properly removing the gel polish then you should be fine. This is crucial because if you are scraping the gel off then you are damaging your nails and then that may become a problem. So use the wraps in the removal kit and your polish should slide right off and then I dont see why giving them a break would be necessary.

I let my nails go dry for a full week and only apply oil to the tips to let them "breathe" so I go 2 weeks with the gel polish, 1 week off. Not sure what the "recommended" time is though.

I just wrote a review on this topic. The Sephora store associates told me I could use regular polish as long as I used the gel base and top coats. NOT! It ended up a smudgy mess!

Are the nail pads available for sale? I've gone through the initial 25 count that came with my kit, but I'm not seeing where I can get refills.
The nail pads were included with the kit to use with the Nail Cleanser.

They are sold online. If sephora does not carry them just search OPI gel color on your web browser and you will find them

I found a cheaper set of removal at my local Wal-Greens as Sephora is a long drive for me. It was just a foil and small pads - it worked just as well and it pulled up the gel polish super easy with the acetone.
