I loved this color and purchased it on sale— finding out later that it was on sale for a reason. It wouldn’t cure no matter what I tried. I used the polish three times— first starting with two coats, then two thinner coats, then one coat— under two different lamps. It ALWAYS got lumpy and wouldn’t cure. I purchased gel because I am a new mama and wanted to have my nails done, even if that meant doing it myself.. but soon realized it wasn’t worth it because each time I applied, I also had to find time to take it off that same day because it wouldn’t cure. If you have a new baby around, it’s impossible to do that. So instead I walked around most of the day with sticky pealing nails. After four days of trying to find time, I finally got it removed— tried two more times with less polish and another lamp and still had the same result. The polish is no good. :(
