Question
Is there any hardener in this or just polish that cures

answer 1
The gel polish that cures makes your nails seem harder, stronger. It's not a nail hardener but it will keep them from breaking better than a regular hardener.

No nail hardener, just base, color and top coat.

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.

The nail polish remover in this kit is regular nail polish remover, believe it or not. You can buy that anywhere but I'd use acetone by itself. You can get acetone at any department store in the nail polish section. Acetone will remove it faster. Hope this helps :)

If you just want the alcohol then you can buy that separately online or in store but if you need to wraps,gloves,or cuticle stick you have to buy them in a package.

yes, this kit will work with ANY Gel Polish from any brand, it does not even need to be OPI. Many people just use their preference, as I prefer the Sephora/Opi products...

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.

Is this also made to do pedicures?

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).

I believe you get approximately 20 manicures if you use 3 coats each time. I only use 2 so I can get more out. May not seem like a lot for the money, but if you think about the fact that each manicure lasts 2+ weeks, each bottle will give you 40+ weeks of manicures. That's almost an entire year of consistent use!

Well it comes with a bottle of the base coat, top coat, and you get a free gelshine color, so whenever you run out of those, you can just get new ones.

So strange - I've had no issue with peeling. I recommend filing your nail thoroughly so the surface is a bit rough (don't take too much off though) and try doubling the light time (two rounds instead of one) which is recommended for darker colors. My nails will last 2 weeks when I use this product.

Gelshine vs. OPI Axxium
How does this compare to the OPI Axxium that is done in salons? Does it damage your nails as much? Are the colors as good?

AFTER THE TOP COAT AND LAST TIME UNDER LED YOU MUST USE THE GEL CLEANSER ON A PAD AND WIPE EACH NAIL BEFORE THEY ARE COMPLETELY DONE.

Works just as well. You do not have to use OPI gel color. Other gel brands work with this system as well

Question
Curing time - need longer time?
This is my first time using the Gel System. My nails did not seem to cure -- they are still tacky. Is that normal? Should I continue using the light until they seem dry?

Hi - the tacky finish is removed when you use the nail cleaner (the last step). I've been thrilled with the end result. Hope this helps.

Your nails are going to be tacky, even after curing, until you use the nail cleanser as the last step. The cleanser removes the tackiness after they're cured, and then they should be smooth and dry.
