Beauty Trend: Gel Nail Polish

So this idea of going to the nail salon and getting a manicure that barely lasts 3 days just didn't do it for me anymore. So I am now a gel nail polish convert and I've picked the following polishes for my small collection which includes gel polish strips.

Sensationail Gel Polish Starter KIt

Sally Hansen Salon Pro Gel Kit

Red Carpet Manicure Pro Starter Kit

Though I started my collection above, I've yet to get the LED light needed to set the gel polish. Then there's special solution needed to remove the gel polish. If you're going in the direction of DIY gel polish then getting one of the starter kits above is best. I've learnt that you save way more getting a kit than buying everything individually since the LED light alone costs at least $25.

Since I haven't gotten my kit, last weekend I went in for a hot pink gel manicure and I'm loving it.
Now that being said, I still go to the nail salon and use regular polish for my pedicures. Pedicures seem to go a while without peeling or chipping, so there's no need to use a gel polish on the toes.

Are you a fan of gel polish or do you prefer regular nail color?


  1. I have a gel nail set I ordered online, it works good but mine seems to peel pretty quick compared to getting them done professionally.

  2. I will have to give these gel nails a try. Thank you for sharing this information
