I only trained as a nail tech this year and I was trained using Bio Seaweed Gel. I have no experience of using any other Gels so have no way of making a comparison. I can say that from using the product that the gel is too soft to sculpt with and you always need to use a tip but on the back of that removal is quite easy as you can soak it off. The soak off is not 5 mins like the claim it's more like 10-15. I'm not too sure what else you'd like to know but feel free to ask.
