    Removes with pure acetone. You have to soak in it. Wrap an acetone soaked cotton ball with foil wrapped around the finger tips. It's a pain to remove but the longevity is great.

    I'd be interested ito know if it hides the ridges that I have in my ancient nails. It would be great, too if it helped hold cracked nails from splitting!

    I used to get gel nails done, sounds similar and did last forever.

    I have very weak, thin, brittle nails. I got the shellac polish for my sons wedding. They were still beautiful after 2 weeks. I am very, very hard on polish. If I do my own I usually ruin them the first day. No chips or wearing off either.

    I went and had mine done. It does last but I am also concern about the lightening and also the cost...I did remove my own. You need nail polish remover and wrapped each nail with a cottonball with the nailpoish remover that has acetone in it (mine was not 100 percent acetone) with aulium foil it worked wonders and I did not have to pay someone to remove it. Also since I did it myself I do not have to worry about them taking it off and filing my nail thinner. If you have it done you should remove it yourself.

    I had gel polish about 6 months ago and it didn't stag on at all. In fact, it was chipping soon after I arrived home. I wonder what they did wrong? I may have to try it again. Thanks for the positive comments.

    I just started getting these nails as well about 4 months ago and I just LOVE them. I have a gel nail manicure and a pedicure about once a month. I have decided that as long as I can afford it I will continue to get them as I enjoy them sooo much. Amazing how it can make you feel....

    Thanks for all the information. I have been thinking about this for awhile.
