Have you heard of Bio Seaweed Gel (BSG) polish?  If not, let me give you a brief run down.  I was lucky enough to be selected by BSG to receive some of their products, for free, to review and help spread the word about healthy gel polish.  Bio Seaweed Gel is a gel polish system that is 5 free, which is what makes it healthier.  Yes, I was surprised too when I read that!!  BSG has two different product lines of gel polishes; one is the typical 3-step application (base gel, gel color & top gel) and the other is the Unity All-in-One Gel Polish (which is what I received).


The BSG Unity All-in-One Gel is a 1 step application because the base, color, top & strengthener are all built into one...hence the name All-in-One.  This means that all you have to do is apply the gel color and you get everything else included.  It cures in 30 seconds under a LED light and 1 minute under a UV light.  I tested both methods and the gel polish cured perfectly with no problems.  I have a 7 watt (Sensationail) and a 7.5 watt (Kiss) LED lamp, and a 42 watt UV lamp.  Another great thing about this gel polish is that this is a "no wipe" formula meaning no tacky or sticky residue left behind to remove.  This also means there is no need to purchase any gel cleansers.  One of the best things about this gel is that they state that it will cure under natural sunlight in 2 minutes depending upon the strength of the sun!! Yes!!!  As of now, I have not tested this out, but I will test this out later today (4/24/14) when I get home and provide an update.

If you want to lengthen the durability and wear of your gel manicure BSG offers 2 different top coats; the no wipe top coat (can also be cured under natural sunlight) & the diamond shine top coat (cannot be cured under natural sunlight and requires wiping with alcohol).
