My best advice is to try as many as you can. Most brands have an introduction kit, a kit containing their most selled items in a small size you can "test drive".
Test some and find out on your own what do YOU like.
I would recomend trying Akzentz, CND, IBD, EzFlow, Entity, Professionails and LCN, and any others you can get you hands on.

I would recomend the nail house. I have been uing this brand for about 6 months and i quite like this product.

I would contact the high end companies and not only ask them for info on their gels but also keep in mind that it's not just the product you're investing in but the education, customer care and also the continuing support.
I don't see how you can test-drive high end gel brands as the majority of them require the UV lamp that's recommended for the brand to ensure thorough curing etc, what's the point of trying out a gel, not using the right lamp and having service breakdown? You won't get the best results that way.

Also keep in mind... in the beginning while training, or just having finished; you're going to have "growing pains" and no matter what gel you use.... you're going to have problems, even such as you describe.
In most cases, it's the application of the product and not the product itself.
It's said that it takes about 100 sets for the "light to go on".
I wouldn't be so quick to blame the gel.
Keep practicing. It'll come to you. Read the tutorials here on site.
