I think people have done it but I dont think the results are quite what they wanted.

I have read that you can but make sure that your regular polish is 100% dry before you put the top coat on and cure it.  I have heard that the polish will wrinkle.  I have also read that you will need to use the gel base coat too.

this, but also the gel products are formulated to work together so I think you get best results by using all the proper products.

I do have some but the color selection is limited. I have some favorite OPI colors that I can't give up.
