Happy Monday! A couple of my girlfriends were in town for the weekend and one of them brought her gel nails kit, which is similar to shellac (thanks, Dal!). I tried it out and I am officially hooked. In fact, I love it so much I wanted to share with you guys even though this isn't my normal "genre" if you will. Hope you like it!
Gel Base Coat
Gel Color Coat
Gel Top Coat
Alcohol (NOT Acetone)
The first step is to use the black side of the file to buff your nails a bit so the base coat has a rougher area to stick to.
After buffing, put on the base coat.
Then, put each hand in the light for 1 minute.
Then two coats of the color, using the light for 1 minute on each hand after the first coat and after the second coat.
Then one coat of the top and 1 minute of light after on each hand.
Lastly, the magic step. Take rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball and rub it on your nails like you are trying to take off the polish. This removes the film on the nails.
Now you are done!! So pretty!
Has anyone else tried this at home? I would love to know!
