i got an led gel kit for my birthday, and am super excited for it. However, I have a TON of regular nail polish at home and don’t want to spend a whack of money replacing it all with the gel polish. Has anyone tried painting their nails with regular polish, then putting the gel top coat on top of it?

I tried with mine and sadly it didn’t work. I used an OPI nude color that wasn’t gel, let it dry for a few hours (which I thought would be long enough), and then used gelish top coat with my LED light. It peeled right off.
I hate spending the money on gel polish too but it is worth it! My manis last two weeks, just like the salon, when I do it with gel polish.

I think you can use other gel nail products with that kit, so you might try Sensationail’s gel transformer kit. You mix their transformer with regular nail polish and then cure under the LED lamp as normal! I’ve never used it because I like their colors fine, I don’t really need/want to buy regular nail polish anymore, but it’s got good reviews online. You can find it at walmart or target, it’s not too expensive 🙂
