I have never tried a dip kit before and I am very impressed. The packaging is great; helps keep everything in order. It comes with 2 spare bottle brushes just in case your brushes start to get powder color in them (I just cleaned the brush before dipping back in the bottle). The application process is very fast and I love that it dries very quickly! The only downside I have found so far is that the bottles of powder are filled to the top so when you dip the first few times, the powder overflows. I don��t like to waste anything, so I wish there was a little more head space to prevent this. A slightly larger jar would be able to fix it. Also, I��m not sure if the bottles of base, fixative and top coat will last to use all of this powder, so I may have to buy more. But all in all this is a great product!
