I'm on the far left - you can't see my nails.
I again went without the optional base coat.
This time the gel didn't seem to set. I did it last Wednesday and it still feels a little tacky. The gel also started chipping by the end of the week, tip wear as well.
You can see the tip wear and a chip in the photo - also see my broken nail!
This colour has the 30 second fast cure and I did put the nails in for 1 min instead but I'm sure that wouldn't have changed it. Plus it had the normal top coat. I don't really know what went wrong.
Anyway, only five days in and I already need to replace it.
I'll try this colour near Xmas just in case it was user error...
