First, I really hate doing my own nails. I used to all the time, but then I discovered a great salon near my home and I started treating myself to manicures and pedicures. (Oh...those massage chairs! I need one in my house!) I would usually get traditional manicures but, one day last year I decided I would try a gel manicure and see what all the fuss was about. I am now addicted! Although my own nails are relatively strong, they do tend to split and the gel manicures have solved that problem entirely. I also keep my nails short because I am always using them to mess with my camera to open battery compartments, etc. (not to mention opening that stubborn makeup packaging!) and the gel manicures keep them from breaking and chipping. The biggest problem I have with gel manicures...I always wait so long between them that I get that big gap on my fingernail where the new growth is. Here's a photo of what my nails looked like before I "fixed" my crisis.
I can't say yet whether or not I would repurchase these or not. I want to see how they perform and see how long they last on my nails. I didn't put a topcoat over these as the package directions say that you are supposed to just peel them off. I will have to give an update on how these perform. But, at least my nails look decent for New Year's Eve now!
That's it for today my lovelies! Have a wonderful New Year's! Stay safe, DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE! In my area, some taxi companies give free rides if you've had too much to drink. And, many tow companies in my area offer a free tow to get you and your car home safe and sound. Check in the area where you live and see if there are taxi companies or tow companies that offer the same type of services.
