With all of the new "gel polishes" available out there today, I feel they are coming at me too fast to properly experiment with them all!
So, who all has tried what?? And what were your experiences with them? Ie: prep, application, removal, wear, customer service, colors available, etc. Do you have any pics?
I don't even know if I can remember all the companies that have them out now, but; NSI, Geleration, Gelac--and what all else?
I would just like to know what everyones experiences are, so I can make some judgements about what I should try out.

I like my Tammy Taylor ones, gelish, NSI and ESO. I hated the shellac and the OPI (forgot how to spell theres).

Yup, NSI Polish Pro is the new SOG Polish from NSI. Lots of interesting colors, I am thinking about trying some out.

Hi Girls! Just checking in to tell you that I've supplemented my Shellac stash with Geleration colors by Jessica. Im lovin them! Application has to be really thin, and the darker colors should be cured longer than 2 mins but the results are beautiful :)

Does she have a variety of colors or is it mainly the pink/red/brown variation like Shellac?

I love Gelish! I have tried Gelac, Shellac, and several of the pot versions.
I can say this definitively, I DO NOT like Hybrids, lacquer/gel combos. I do not think they hold up as well, nor do they have the kind of consistent application that I desire. Also, they have a long term impact on the nail that to me is undesirable.
Love love love Gelish, like Jessica's Geleration and a brand new one by Artisitic called Colour Gloss. All of them are pigmented gels formulated to go on like polish and soak off with little or no impact to the natural nail.

Well, I am still stuck on Gelish also, and I have now tried Shellac, Gelify, Gelleration, P2 and Eco.
What is your experience with Gelac? It is also in a bottle, right?

Hello, this is my first post!

We had a big show here in the UK yesterday. I managed to get 6 of my natural nails gel polished, all by different companies. I will road test them for a couple of weeks on myself and see how each one wears and then removes.

In no particular order, I have on: CND Shellac, OPI Axxium, NSI Pro Polish, Young Nails Mani Q custom blend (with my own polish), Harmony Gelish, Nubar Gellicure (I wrote everything down including prep/pep, timings etc. and I know which is which). I couldn't get anywhere near the Jessica stand which was a shame.

The shine is more or less the same on all of them. Only one is as opaque as I would like. Two were done in LED lights, the rest in UV. Of course all the techs applying the gels were experts so they made it look easy - only one seemed to be having trouble! I was only worried once about over buffing of my natural nail.

If any one is interested, I can post more pictures to show wear over the next few days/weeks. I still haven't decided which system to go for myself!

Very cool.....I like the Gelish out of what I have played with the most so far. Hope TT comes out with one :)
