Gel Nail Polish Starter Kit – CND, OPI Gel Color And Gelish

You’ve read a lot about gel manicure and ready to be a do-it-yourself gel manicurist. Or maybe you are looking for a gift for a gel polish fan. Whatever your reason is, this article will let you know about three Gel Nail Polish Starter/Intro Kits from the most popular brands in the market. They are CND, OPI GelColor and Gelish.

For starter, buying a kit will cost less than buying individually. The kit also has all (most) everything you need to do gel application. It helps you starting your gel manicure without getting panic because you miss something important in the middle of your manicure.

gelish complete starter kit

Like its name, this kit has the most complete set including a mini (pretty small) LED lamp.  The whole kit comes in a small box that weighs only 2 lbs.

It contains:

The Gelish MINI Pro 45 LED Curing Light

It is especially designed to efficiently cure Gelish Soak-off Gel color and products from the Gelish MINI System for a beautiful manicure that lasts up to three weeks. Its compact design is great for at-home personal use and cures 4 fingers at a time. Cures faster than regular uv lamp.

Features includes:

  • a preset forty-five second timer and three 2 watt LED bulbs that never need to be replaced.
  • The compact ergonomic design allows for both comfort and to save table space.
  • The MINI Pro 45 has consistent power and performance from the first second out of the box through to the 50,0000th hour.

International customer needs a plug converter.

Update May 2014: Just arrived! Gelish Pro Kit, a starter kit that’s similar to Gelish Complete Starter Kit, but with larger 5-45 LED Lamp that cures 5 fingers. Read Gelish Pro Kit for details.


CND Shellac Starter Trial Pack Kit

CND Shellac Gel Kit contains all you need to start right away. This is the only kit packed in a retail box, directly from CND. So the colors are pre-selected. Don’t mistake it with many Shellac kits that are custom selected by seller, which are many on Ebay.

There are 2 color options, Chic or Trendy. These have 4 different Shellac colors. The rest are the same.
