I got tired of going to the salon and paying $35-40 for dip. finally decided to buy all of the essentials; bond, base, seal protect and top. I also bought the Clear dip, to help with the shine. I saw images on google of the Creme of the Crop, and it looked like the perfect sheer nude. Well I was not disappointed, this is a wonderful that really gives a great professional look. I would def recommend buying this dip.
If you're like me, I would also recommend buying the essentials and a starter color you'll know you'll love. I paid around 92 bucks, with the AB10OFF coupon code. One of the things I hated about the salon, was the drills the techs would use. I find using a hand buffer and file does the job just as well, if not better. I managed to do my first set within an hour and some change. Once you get through your first set, you'll actually see how easy it is.
I still go to the salon for a basic pedicure, but I've always enjoyed doing my own manicures, I am glad I can keep doing with my dip.
Also Kiara Sky has one of the best customer service I've experienced. Any email concerns I had, I always got a direct and honest response back. Their Youtube channel is also amazing too, especially for us DIY folks.
