At Home Gel Manicure Review
So, a couple of weeks ago I saw this idea about a home gel manicure. I was really intrigued. I love to paint my nails, but with cleaning the house everyday, washing hands, washing dishes, and just taking care of the kids my nail polish rarely lasts 3 days. By day 2 I've got wear and tear on the edges of my nails, and by day 3 it's already starting to chip. When I saw the idea that I could have a manicure last for weeks, rather then 3 days, I decided to try it.
I followed the directions exactly as she had them.
I lightly buffed my nails and wiped them with acetone nail polish remover to remove any debris and oils.
2 coats of Gelous Nail Gel, letting each coat dry between coats.
1 coat of the nail color of my choice. I used Rosy Outlook.
1 coat of Gelous Nail Gel, making sure to swipe my nail tips. Let dry
1 coat of nail color again, let dry and follow up with a top coat. I used Out the Door
The results were surprising. This was taking February 12, 2013
This was taken February 17, 2013
Edit: I should note that I did this same method to my toes, and they still look as good as they did they first day. Perhaps I'm to rough on my hands. Ah, the life of a mom!
Until Next Time,
