I know this may seem kind of a silly thing to blog about. But here is the thing...I have terrible nails. They are always breaking and short and fragile. Then I start to pick at them or bite them. I don't bit them so low that they look terrible, but they don't look pretty. I really want to have a finished look, as my mom would say, in my new job. I also had a wedding to attend a few weeks back so I looked into this gel manicure. For those that care, it is a manicure developed by OPI during which you put your nails under the UV lights between coats. It gave my nails a pretty solid base for almost 2 weeks. I know someone who has hers for over 3 weeks, but mine was done by 2. Part of that was because I have my hands in water and cleanser so much. I mean, seriously, I am always cleaning something or washing my hands. My nails are growing so prettily and the polish does not chip!
The drawback, of course, is the price. I don't know how long I will keep this up, but it is worth the $35 price tag for now. Pictures to follow!
