This was my first time ever trying Poly gel. Figured I’d give it a go since I’m cheap and and don’t want to pay $60 to get my nails done every 2 weeks. Also I don’t wanna be stuck in a nail salon right now. I gave this kit a try and although there was a major learning curve, once I got the hang of it, i was really digging this. Doing my dominant hand with my non dominant was a real pain in the butt, like seriously- i can barely paint my right hand without looking like a toddler did it so I wasn’t expecting good results but they didn’t come out too bad luckily. Although my thumb on that hand looks wonky, kinda like my grandmas lifted toenail lol. I figured I’d leave it for now, it adds character . Plus there’s no way in hell I’m gonna try to redo this now after I spent like 5 hours learning this crap. I imagine once I do it more it’ll become easier. I do like that I can “build” a nail and I don’t need to glue on tips unless I want to. I’d say this is a pretty good investment and I look forward to playing with it a little more.
