I love this kit. You get everything you need. The only thing I don't care for is the top coat which seems more like a sticky glue and ruins brushes. Next time I will try to use a gel polish for top coat instead. Kiara Sky's YouTube has some amazing tutorials and you can learn how to properly build the apex etc. Also if you have too many layers don't forget to use the Seal Protect in between to harden the powder. First time user advice: perhaps don't do too many layers unless you have an E file to shape up the nail properly. I had chunky nails and really needed to work on mine. A little bit goes a long way. Put a white piece of paper underneath each powder you work with so you don't have to waste fallout and can put it back in the tub if it doesn't appear 'contaminated'- for personal use. As for professional I can't speak because I'm not a professional but rather a DIYer and nail enthusiast that just isn't satisifed with anything until I do it myself! =D Beats buying from the direct site as you don't have to deal with the exchange nor duties etc
The product is fantastic and so easy to use, however I received two Medium Pink powders and no light pink as described in the kit contents on the Kiara Sky website, as well and more disappointing the seal protect bottle had a broken seal in the top and leaked, so I'm out about quarter to half the bottle which is very disappointing especially considering paying 155.00. However to rate the product itself on its own: I love it!! so easy to use, my nails look natural and so strong. I messed one up and had to soak it to remove it and this removes so much easier than gel. I highly recommend this product. Just be careful you check all the contents in your kit before you use it.
I love this system! I have brittle nails and I can never get my natural nails to grow past the tip of my finger. With this system I can. My intention is not to have extra long nails or tips. I don't put as as many layers as recommended because it becomes to thick for me. I only dip 2 times in the light pink, apply the seal and protect, buff, apply an other coat of seal and protect and then one coat of the top coat. I've done it 3 times now and it takes me about 30 to 35 minutes from start to finish. The longest part is doing my right had... If I had to buy again, I would not buy a kit, I would only buy the bottles 1, 2, 3 and 4 plus the clear dip. I use a paper towel to clean my brush between every dip in the bottles. I have not had issues with bottle no opening or brush clumping up. You can also use regular polish over it. Youtube was very helpful to learn how to do this correctly.
