Question
can you do french manicure?
I actually have a few questions: 1) can you do a french manicure with this set? 2) can you do toes? 3) I have been wearing fake nails for about a year and have soft, damadged nails as a result, can I switch directly to this? or do I have to wait for them to recover a bit? Thanks

I have done French manicure with this light, but bought some additional nail polish (white and pale pink). I have done my toes as well, and I think I love the pedicure possibly even more than the manicure, because it lasts forever. My foot (9.5WW) fits fine under the light!

You cannot achieve a french manicure with what's included in this kit alone. You can only chose one color to include with your purchase of this set. So actually, I guess if you just wanted white tips you could choose one of the 'white colors'. There are a lot more color choices available in-store than on-line.

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.

Question
Will Sephora sell the nail pads and pink buffer separately?
I've owned this system for a few months and I love it! Currently, I'm running very low on the nail pads and my pink buffer can use a replacement. Will Sephora be selling these items separately from the whole system?

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)..

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.'

How often should one take a break from wearing gel polish?

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.
