Phew what a product name, I have recently removed my gel nails mainly due to not being able to find the time for an infill before a trip to London & after breaking one I popped to Boots one evening after work to pick up a kit & thought i'd review it as I got a few questions on Twitter.

- The tips have a little ridge where you should glue up to & then with your nail tip meeting the ridge at a right angle push down on to the nails so that the tip of your nail meets the ridge of the tip and it makes sure there are no air bubbles under the tip, this isn't included in the instructions but makes a big difference to the overall appearance.
- The blending of the tip is an important step if you plan to keep them polish free or use a sheer polish over the top as it can be noticeable underneath the gel, just soak the edge in lots of the cleanser then go at it with the file and it is relatively easy, it is totally skip-able if you want to paint over them.
- Seriously use a well ventilated room as it is strong stuff, I actually burnt my lungs doing this & was wheezing for a couple of days & also don't bend your head over your hands as it really makes your eyes hurt.
- I personally found it easiest to apply the gel to a nail & then the activator straight away instead of applying the gel to all the nails then the activator as the activator needs to be applied over wet gel so it saves you having to rush so you can be more precise & make sure the nail is fully covered and even.
