Directions
2 easy steps.
1. Color:
Cleanse nails & apply gel polish strips.
2. Top coat gel:
Apply gel top coat.
Cure under mini LED lamp & finish with nail cleansing pad. Done!
No dry time & removes easily with acetone polish remover.
Open, unused strips should be discarded.
Step by step instructions:
The Mini LED Lamp will cure (set) your manicure to a solid, high-gloss finish with zero dry time. Throughout the curing process, nails will feel tacky until the final cleanse step is complete. Do not touch nails between steps of the manicure. There is no need to keep your hand under the mini LED lamp longer than instructed.
LED lamp setup:
Insert connector into port on the back of the LED lamp and plug into outlet.
Note: when first plugged into outlet, lamp may turn on automatically.
Press button on top of lamp to activate - lamp will turn off automatically after 30 seconds.
Unplug LED lamp after use.
Recommended finger placement for curing.
Comfortably position individual finger or thumb directly on the raised guide inside mini LED Lamp.
Ensure nail is positioned inside the lamp so that the LED light reaches each nail evenly.
Tips & tricks before you begin:
Shake all gel bottles vigorously before use.
Avoid contact of the gel top coat with the skin. Remove excess gel from skin with cuticle stick prior to curing - otherwise your manicure will not last.
Using the nail cleanser pad, be sure to clean off the neck of the top coat bottle before closing the cap. This will help to avoid product spill or dry out.
Do not use outdoors - exposure to sunlight will solidify gel product in bottle and on brush.
Do not file nails, peel or pick off gel. If gel separates from nail, follow proper removal instructions.
For best results, apply strips to all 10 nails first, then apply gel top coat and cure one nail at a time.
1. Prep:
Start with clean, dry nails.
Push back cuticles with wooden cuticle stick and shape nails to desired length.
Shape free edge of nail with light and dark pink side of file.
Gently smooth surface of nails with white buffer side of file to remove any shine from the nail.
Give nails a complete swipe with nail cleanser pad to remove any excess dirt & oil. (This step is extremely important as it helps your manicure last longer.) Ensure there is no creamy or oily residue left behind.
2. Select & apply strip:
Select best-fitting strip for each nail.
Remove clear protective plastic cover & peel strip from backing paper.
Place strip against cuticle line and press strip to nail.
Use warm hands for maximum flexibility and to help mold the strip to the nail. Gently stretch strip for a perfect fit and firmly smooth over entire nail.
Run flat side of cuticle stick along edge of strip to firmly bond strip to nail.
3. Shape:
Smooth excess polish strip over nail edge, forming a crease around the edge of the nail. Gently file away excess from nail edge using light pink side of file.
Repeat steps 2-3 for each nail, applying to thumbs last.
4. Apply gel top coat:
Shake bottle of gel top coat vigorously.
Apply thin coat to one nail (completely polish free edge of nail and remove any product from the skin prior to curing) and cure for 30 seconds with Mini LED lamp. Complete this process before moving onto next nail.
To begin cure, press the start button on top of the mini LED lamp mini LED lamp will automatically turn off after 30 seconds.
5. Cleanse & finish:
Once all nails are cured with the gel top coat, wipe all nails with nail cleanser pad to remove tacky residue; manicure is complete.
6. Removal:
Saturate a small piece of cotton the size of your nail with Sally Hansen® nail polish remover (do not use an acetone-free remover). Place cotton over gel and wrap tightly with a small square of aluminum foil.
Check first nail after 5 minutes; The gel should be lifted up off the nail and easy to push off with the cuticle stick.
If necessary re-saturate cotton, rewrap nail and check every 5 minutes.
Gently push off gel with cuticle stick (Do not pull gel away from natural nail plate).

The strips don't stick to the nails.
colorific gal
Unfortunately, my nails started peeling within minutes, and a few hours later, almost all of them have peeled or chipped.
Abby Lowe
You apply the topcoat and then put your nail immediately underneath the LED light for 30 seconds.

Color Name: Starter kit Shell We Dance?
I saw this product advertised in a magazine and got very excited. I used to do the whole messy gel process at home (mixing the powder alone was a pain). I was a bit shocked when I learned the price of the kit but I had a $2.00 coupon so that made it more palatable to purchase.

The kit is available in a few color choices (one color per kit). Then you buy individual Insta gel color strips at 14.99 per box. I chose the kit with the Shell We Dance color strips and also purchased a separate box of strips in the Punch Drunk color.

I was surprised to see how small the LED curing gadget was. I figured it was going to be battery operated but was happy to see it had a power adapter.

The instructions are fairly easy to follow. I read through them all thoroughly however before starting.

The kit includes two alcohol prep pads, an orange stick, a double grit file, gel top coat and 16 color strips of various widths. I thought 16 was a strange amount. I mean, most of us have 10 fingers. So why not 10 for a lower price or include an extra 4 for an even 20. That would allow for two applications right? I was kind of irritated to know I paid for an orange stick, a file and two alcohol pads because those are things that I (and I think most of us) already have in our nail care kit.

I started by filing my nails to the desired length and shape. I softened and pushed my cuticles back (this is important in order to place the color strip evenly at the base of your nail). I washed my hands, dried completely and then swabbed my nails with the alcohol pad.

I examined the color strips and selected the needed sizes for each nail. The strips are fairly long (over an inch) with a tab at the ends.

Color Name: Starter kit Red My Lips
I bought it because I was tired of doing my nails every 3 days. I got the kit and I red the whole instructions, I purchased the additional base coat (which is not included in the starter kit), and a cheap simple acetone (to take it off just in case). I filed and cleaned my nails with simple alcohol before applying the base coat, followed by the strips and then the top coat. I was freaked out at the end because my nails where super sticky, but after reviewing the instructions one more time, I had forgotten about the cleaning with alcohol one more time (to get rid of the sticky residue).

I red the comments before buying the product and most people said they peel off easily, that is does not last a week. In my case it lasted 2 weeks!! without losing the shine. It chipped just a little on my index fingers, but it was not noticeable at simple view. I decided to remove it because my nails have grown and because two weeks was enough of having the same color.

To remove was a little tricky, as you need to soak a little cotton ball with plain acetone-based nail paint remover, put in on top of your nail and wrap it with aluminum foil. Let it stand for 3-5min, and then wipe clean. The gel will come out entirely.

I had a box of regular SH nail strips (not the gel nail strips), and I used them in my second manicure and it worked the same as the gel manicure. They also are a little bit cheaper than the gel version, which is a plus when buying them. I did not buy the SH gel remover solution or the cleaning pad, as they are the same as acetone nail paint remover and isopropyl alcohol.

Color Name: Starter kit Shell We Dance?
I tried Sally Hansen Insta-gel strips for the first time, and I followed the directions explicitly. The process was easy enough, and they do dry instantly after using the UV light, which is nice. However, less than 24 hours later two of my nails have already chipped. For this reason, this system is not worth the $14 it costs for the strips each time you want to do your nails. For that price you might as well go to the salon and get a manicure done. I also do not like that you basically have to soak your fingernails in acetone nail polish remover to take the polish off, which I understand is true of all gel polishes, but its just not what I feel like doing since I just did my nails last night. I do not recommend this and I will not be purchasing again.

I wish I could give it zero stars. It peeled within 20 minutes, and I followed the directions to the letter. So disappointed. Don't waste your money.

Color Name: Starter kit Red My Lips
I would recommend buying the LED light and the gel top coat, and that is all you need. I got the strip starter kit as a gift, and was not thrilled; I have not had good luck with the strips in the past! After a week of debating whether or not I would use it, I decided to use it my own way. I used a regular base coat (I love Orly Rubberized Bonder) and two coats of one of my OPI polishes. After letting each coat dry COMPLETELY, I followed the instructions for this gel top coat and cured each nail. I was nervous at first because they felt tacky after 30 seconds under the light, but then I finished reading the instructions and that is normal. After wiping with an alcohol pad, they were completely hard and crystal clear like I had gone to the salon. I did a second coat so I could close in the tips to save my nails from chipping. 3-4 days later, I did a third coat to cover my tips again because I hit them on everything (and enjoy tapping my fingernails on hard surfaces to hear the sound). A week later, I have no chips and it still looks glassy and truly professional. Definitely follow the directions, and I don't see why you should have any problems. (It says don't let the gel polish touch your cuticle/skin, so take the time to clean it up if this happens. Otherwise it won't seal to your nail.)
Don't waste your time buying gel polishes or the strip refills. You only need regular nail polish, this gel top coat and the light! I've been shopping around and have found the top coat for $5 on eBay. That's the cheapest I have been able to find so far. It is a small bottle, but still has a lot in it after my three coats. I am secretly hoping I get a chip soon just because I want an excuse to take this color off and have another perfect looking, glossy color to look at! It is money well spent.
