Gershion Poly Nail Gel Kit Review

Thursday, January 14, 2021

In 2020 due to lockdown, or multiple lockdowns or quarantines in my city I purchased obscene number of things. I know I m probably not the only one, so I wanted to review a few things that I loved and few not so much loved. I love getting my nails done and have been getting acrylics and manicures for years, but with COVID and being worried about going places and the I decided to invest in the UV/LED light, and a polygel kit. 

Let me start this by saying I am no beauty technically inclined; I have a challenge painting my nails some days (like to a disasters point) but I couldn't be happier with my first attempt. I was shocked at how easy it was, sure it will take practice to get this right. 
The starter kit includes: 6 30ml gels in different colors-1.05oz, 50 dual forms in different sizes, 50 pcs paper forms, a dual headed tool-nail brush and spatula and a base and top coat.

Few things I learned along the way:
  • Less product is better. To much polygel will just ooze out around the sides and make your nails too thick. Dab just a small amount on the nail form and then add more if needed.
  • Alcohol or the slip is your best friend.
  • Cure for 60 seconds on both top and bottom of your nail.
  • You can paint over those (normal nail polish) and set it with gel provided
  • The forms are easier than paper
The only negative, aside from the learning curve if you are clueless like me, is that you need to purchase a gel lamp.
