I live in the Stone Age or something.. because I’d never tried out the wonders of gel
I haven’t managed to get a proper manicure since giving birth. It’s not practical, because it’s hard to find the time and the nailpolish smudges or scratches easily since I handle Hunter so much and do the dishes/wash stuff constantly.
I’m glad I decided to take the leap and try out gel nails with babyflite. The whole process is almost identical to regular nail polish application, except after each coat, you stick your hand under a UV lamp to ‘set’ the polish. It sets super hard and shiny within 2 minutes and DOES NOT SMUDGE! This means I could bang my fingers around and go about my usual business and household chores without fearing I’d damage my pretty new manicure.
Freakin’ amazing. And to think it took me this long to find out about gel nails. Sheesh.
I am a total convert. It’s amazing how regular nail polish absolutely pales in comparison now. The advice is to get the gel nails done once or twice, then get them removed (this is done by soaking them in a solution for a few mins) and leave your nails be for a few weeks to ‘breathe’. Same as a regular manicure to be honest, as I don’t like having stuff covering my nails constantly.
