    I wear gel nails ALL the time... they are fantastic. I have never experienced yellowing, or any issues at all.. I know they aren't good for your real nails, but they look great - and I feel great about them.

    No complaints here.

        Koolatta - sounds like it should hold up according to everyone else! Maybe do a trial run before you go like I am, to see how long it lasts.

          Your nails look great Lisa. They are the perfect length. They remind me I need to get mine done!

              I've used gel for years - gel won't yellow (acrylic does) and actually does not damage the nails if it's done right. All the nail tech should do is file the top layer of your nail with a nail file and they should never use a drill - everything should be done by hand.

                Alright ladies, it's time for an update!

                I AM NOT HAPPY WITH THESE THINGS!!! A few hours after I got home after getting them done, I noticed some whitish spots on the edges of the nails. I realized that I could lift the gel off. That happened to one nail. Now, it's been a week, the white has chipped off one whole nail and is lifting on about 7 of my fingers. I dunno if the girl didn't do it right or something, but it's so annoying. I've tried calling a few times and left messages with people to discuss the issue and have the owner call me back, but she hasn't yet. I plan on calling again today, and if I don't talk to her, I am stoping by after work. I don't think this is acceptable to be coming off in a week. They don't look nice at all anymore when looking closely. I'm not sure what they'll do for me, but I hope it's something good. Anyway, it seems like I'm the only one with this problem, so please girls, who haven't tried them, don't be afraid, it's probably just me! lol Just thought that I would let you all know!

                  Lisa, she didn't do them right. My moms best friend is a nail tech (she only does gel) and I asked her about it on facebook chat- they didn't put a thick enough layer on gel on when she did them. My moms friend puts a very thick layer on and then thins it by filing them down. Your girl probably did a thinner layer and didn't thin them with a file.

                      I just called and couldn't talk to the owner but I talked to someone else. I told her what was happening and she didn't know anything about it because she doesn't do nails, sheesh! Anyway, I can't get an appointment until next tues, and she's like, "it's for a fill right?" and i'm like, "no, I don't need them filled, I need them fixed because they aren't done right - you dumbass" (ok, I didn't say that part, but I really wanted to!!). anyway, I plan on stopping by either tonight or tomorrow to show them and I either want my money back or fixed for free, whatever. I'm upset now and it pisses me off!
