The Gel Manicure at Home
Disclaimer : By learning how to do my own gel manicure at home, I'm not boycotting my favorite nail girls - nothing beats a proper, in-salon manicure BUT I love having this new skill and the option to still be able to have my personal style in check. (My style = short, coloured (black) nails which perfectly finish off every outfit).
I've curated a small collection of affordable essentials for you to purchase, to enable you to do your own gel mani's at home too.
What you need to buy:
a UVLED lamp,
gel base coat,
one of my favorite colours for this Winter season,
a shiny or matte top coat,
lint free wipes &
gel wipe solution/ sterrilizer spray.
How to do it:
(I'll add a video soon!)
File your nails to a pretty feminine oval shape & very lightly buff
Remove any oil with a wipe & sterilizer spray/ gel wipe solution
Apply base coat// cure for 60 to 90 seconds
Apply a thin layer of gel colour// cure for 60 to 90 seconds
Apply a second layer of gel colour// cure for 60 to 90 seconds
Apply top coat// cure for 90 seconds
Remove residue with a wipe & sterlizer spray/ gel wipe solution
Apply cuticle oil. I use @memebodyproducts
