Vogue My Manicurist Nail Drill, and How It's Changing My Gel Removal/Fill Routine

I bought a nail drill to aid me in filing the top coat off my nails. It has been hard on my back as I've bent over my toenails dragging my nail file back and forth across the tops of my toenails. The nail drill really helps a lot! It's also really precise.

In the video below, I show how the nail drill works and what attachment I used. I'm a not a licensed professional nail tech, so all this information is to be taken with a grain of salt and only as reference. This is NOT an instructional video.

Gel Polish wear and tear- Gelish Mini with Sally Hansen base and top coat

I am greatly displeased with this chip. Filthy, dirty, sneaky, thieving chip! Robbing me of at least week more of chip-free wear! Now, it's probably my fault it's there in the first place (incorrect application?) but I am upset nonetheless. I am wondering if it is the Gelish gel itself that is prone to chipping, or the top and base coat from Sally Hansen I used? Perhaps I didn't seal the free edge of my nails as well as I thought I did? In any case, I'll just have to see what happens with the next gel manicure.

Gelish Mini "Rake in the Green" Application video and review

A couple days ago I applied Gelish Mini's Rake in the Green to all my nails. Here's the video:
I thought the consistency was a bit strange, I really didn't like it all that much with only two coats applied. I did three thin coats for my right hand, and I feel like the color turned out better that way. I also used Rake in the Green to varnish my toenails, and either the Sally Hansen LED lamp that I used isn't strong enough for it(?) or the polish's consistency has gone bad, since the gel on the edges of my nails seem to have worn off, and on the first day! This would only be my third time applying gel polish, so I don't quite know how to troubleshoot it yet.
