My fingernails are naturally pretty strong and grow long, so I like to keep them polished and looking nice. Gel nail polish is one of the greatest inventions ever… no more chipping and peeling after just a couple of days.  Gel polish typically lasts about 2 weeks, and it stays super shiny like it was just applied.  It protects your nails and makes them stronger, preventing them from breaking or ripping.  And one of the best advantages is that it dries instantly after curing in an LED or UV lamp, so you can immediately get back to work without having to worry about messing up your polish.

I was getting gel manicures at my local salon every couple of weeks, but it was an expensive habit to maintain.  After watching the professionals at the salon do my nails so many times, I thought I would try to do it myself from home.  I did some research on the different brands of gel polish and decided that Gelish was the best option for me.  It was easily accessible on and cheaper than most of the alternatives.  Gelish also has a pretty big selection of colors to choose from.  I purchased all of the equipment that I needed to get started for about 0, which is the equivalent of about 4 manicures at the salon.  Now I do my own gel manicures from home, as well as for a few family members and friends.

  1. If you get polish on your cuticle or skin, remove it with a brush dipped in alcohol or nail cleanser BEFORE curing your nails under the light.  If you allow the polish on your cuticles to harden it will likely cause the polish to peel or chip.  Try to keep the polish on the surface of the nail only.
  2. If you mess up it’s super easy to fix as long as you do it before curing.  Just wipe the layer of polish off with your nail cleanser or alcohol (use a lint-free pad or paper towel), then just re-apply the layer.
  3. Cure time:  Typically gel polish cures with an LED lamp in just 30 seconds, or 2 minutes with a UV lamp.  Read the label on your polish for curing times.
