I had been seeing quite a few recs for Instant Artificials, and ever the product junkie, of course I had to try it to form an opinion. When I was in Sally's renewing my membership last month I purchased a bottle of it along with a bottle of Gelous as well.
It's been about a month, and I am LOVING Instant Artificials! There were quite a few days that I had no time to paint my nails, but two coats of IA keep my nails looking gorgeous and strong.
I've also been using it exclusively as my basecoat for all my color manis, and it's just fabulous- I feel like I am getting less tipwear as well.
I plan on giving Gelous a try next and reporting back on it as well. Hope you have a great day!
