I have been using this for a few monthsI decided to start doing my gel nails myself and bought this brand. I tend to have a problem with it staying on the 2 weeks. I apply the primer across the nail and let it dry 30 seconds before applying the top coat. The first place I start having problems is at my nail bed. What am I doing wrong? I love the product other than that.

Here are some extra tips for adhesion:
Lightly buff the nail to remove any shine
Then wash hands, using plenty of soap on the nails to remove natural oils, before drying thoroughly.
Use cleanser and air dry for 30 seconds
Use the primer all over the nail, including capping the nails horizontally and going just over the edge of the nail
Cap the nails with each layer of polish too - you can try a 'double cap' - paint the tips horizontally, then paint the nail from just above the cuticle to tip as normal before capping the edge again.
Ensure you avoid the cuticle area and skin at the side of your nail to prevent any lifting at the bottom or side
Avoid prolonged periods in hot water immediately after – if you are going to wash the dishes or have a long bath – do it before :-)
Do not use hand cream on the day of the manicure.
Hope some of these help - let us know how you get on.
I think Sensationail is good value for money comapared to other gel nail products. Lots of colour to choose from.The gel primer bottle is small which was good as it leaked and I lost most of it so had to order a new one but at least it's not expensive. I found the Jessica primer also leaked and that was bigger and cost more!
I must say though that the colours on the boxes do not reflect the colours in the bottles............
But they are easy to use and the instructions are easy to follow.
Like superglueI really didn't get along with the primer. I found it made the polish so hard to get off it was like I's used superglue! Not sure what I did wrong as other people seem to get along with it.

everybody's nails are different and this works better on some than others. However, if you are having problems with removal we suggest just using the primer around the edge of the nail and that should help.
Jessica Buckley Love the black but I find when you do it you have to cure for 90 seconds I find that with dark colours you do have to cure for longer otherwise colour can come off. Love it with the neon gems tell me what you think!☺
