Question
Is gelshine the same thickness as a real gel nail done at the salon?
I have a horrible habit of picking my cuticles and dry skin around my nails. They are always enflamed and red. I've realized that the only time I stop doing that is when I have acrylic/gel nails on. I couldn't afford doing that anymore so my naisl have gone back to looking horrible. Then i learnt about this kit... Is it the same thickness as a gel nail or is it more the thickness of a shellac nail? (its the thickness of a gel nail that makes me stop picking)..

Question
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.

Question
It seems a lot of people have complained that there are not a lot of GelShine Nail Colors to choose from...even online...
Does anyone know what GelShine nail Colors ARE AVAILABLE...besides "RED?"...(I assume that IS one of the available colors)...
I cannot seem to find them online here. Anybody?...Thanks.

I really would like to buy this kit (right now), but color choices are somewhat important to me as I DO NOT want to be stuck wearing the same color all the time...right?

Yes, very few colors of gelshine so far, but you can also use OPI gelcolor found elsewhere. I just used it and it worked fine. Gelish seems to work as well.

A pedicure and polish should last you at least a month.
You shouldnt have to use the gel on your toes.
It was made for hands since they are more exposed and used, and plain regular polish usually lasts 2-4 days.
But yes, you can also do it on your feet as well....

Absolutely! I did my toes, and they look great. It is possible to fit the entire foot, with no toe separators, under the light (and I have a size 10 foot).

Does anything contain formaldehyde?
Not sure if I spelled formaldehyde correctly. I typically use 'Formaldehyde Free" products because I am allergic to it. Thank you in advance for your time.

Other OPI Gel Colors
Hello... I am wondering if I would be limited to the gelshine colors or if I could use any other Gel nail polish. I would like to be able to use the OPI gel color Cajun Shrimp but want to make sure before I buy the kit! Thanks

I have used another gel polish brand color and it seemed to work the same exact way, with results lasting for weeks.

Just used OPI gelcolor in My address is Hollywood with this system and it worked beautifully. Cajun shrimp is also available in gelcolor. The gelcolor bottles are much larger because it is made for professional use. I think gelshine may be the same product marketed to the public. Not sure.

Sounds like you missed a step. The top coat should not be sticky if you seal it with the uv light and wipe with the alcohol soaked pad after curing.
