These are awesome. I won’t be going back to acrylic. When you combine the amount of time it takes, wear and tear, and the expense…. This is a fantastic option. However, o will always be applying a clear top coat of gel polish to whatever I purchase. This particular set actually scratched easily and I have to cut down after 3 days of use, file, gel coat and keep going. That said for the price, I will have a salon looking manicure for multiple sets. This particular color (Mademoiselle), I’m very fair skin and the pink is very translucent so almost just looks like I have on clear nails, would recommend a darker pink bottom for fair skin.
