- "Putting them on gets easier and faster, and they last a long time - about two weeks (or longer if you add another top coat every week, which is what I did when my nail broke and taking it off would mean that it would hurt)." in 4 reviews
- "You have to make sure the strip is just smaller than your nail bed (or else it WILL peel within 5 days)." in 1 review
- "I start off with the base coat then use a gel polish-not the strips given- and then the topcoat." in 1 review
Second, these take much longer to apply than regular polish. You have to make sure the strip is just smaller than your nail bed (or else it WILL peel within 5 days). This is problematic because you may have to cut the strip to size before peeling the backing off. Once you peel the backing off, you have one shot to stick the strip to your nail.
I am only not giving this an "F" because the gel top coat works pretty well.
Like any nail polish, the wear depends on how often you wash your hands and what products you come in contact with. However, I love how I can get a spot-on mani without any dry time at home, plus these come in lots of cool colors and designs.
