{Test This} Couture Gel Nail Polish Kit

It seemed like gel manicures were the answer to our prayers–the chip-free, smudge-less gel polish dries in two minutes flat and maintains an unworldly shine…for weeks! We’re sold on the concept, but not so much on the $40-per-application salon bill.

So, when we heard that Couture Gel Nail Polish released a kit which provides you with “everything you need for a salon-quality gel nail polish manicure at home”–we couldn’t help but wonder: was this the perfect ten?

The kit retails for $129 and contains 3 shades of polish, a base coat, a top coat, a salon nail care kit, a zippered carrying case, a UV lamp and an instructional DVD. The manufacturer promises “easy application,” a “2-minute dry time that results in diamond-hard nails,” “a 3-week hold that continues to look fresh until you take it off,” and “no smearing, chipping, smudging, or scratching off — ever.” Did they nail it with this one? We want to know! 7 FOFs will test this at-home gel manicure kit.
