This is my first time using polygel and it's great! I've managed to do a really good job on my nails and so far they've done a great job at work, washing my hands frequently and using hand sanitizer. It's only been a few days, but usually the acrylic nail id's have problems already. Lifting, cracking, breaking, etc. I worked really hard when I was in retail. The product is easy to use, making it simple to avoid big mistakes.
