NOTD: Gel Nails!

5 years ago

This past Friday a couple of my friends and I has a girls day. We went out to lunch then went to get our nails done. There was a place by my job that was advertising 50% off of most services, so we had to stop by! I was reluctant to get gel nails because the last time I did, the French tips started chipping within a couple of days! Which sucks when you consider that I paid over $30! This new place was a steal though! I got my gel nails + manicure, pedicure, brow and upper lip (peach fuzz, NOT mustache! Lol) waxed all for $33!!!! Around the same price I paid just for the nails last time.

My manicurist used the brand Gelish gel polish. My nails are actually a neon pink in natural light, which I thought was perfect for summer! So far I`m at 4 days chip-free and I`m hoping to go at least another week that way! I usually prefer doing my own nails just because I get bored having one color on too long, so I probably won`t be getting this done too often but it was a nice change!

For those of you who don`t know what gel nails are, it`s basically a special nail polish that uses several layers cured with a UV light. This process is said to go without chipping for around 2 weeks. It also gets pretty thick which helps keep thin nails from breaking. I used to get acrylics, but I HATE how those ruin your nails when you take them off! These soak off in acetone and leave your nails in great condition since theres no buffing or drilling involved in the process.

I really like these, and would reccommend them for anyone with brittle nails, or someone who wants long lasting color.

Thanks for reading!
