Let’s talk nails

So are used to get my nails done religiously before meeting my fiancé. About two years in a relationship I stop working became a stay at home mom in stopped getting them done. With the wedding coming up I obviously want to have a nice set of nails done so I figured I do them myself. Instead of paying 30 to 40 or even $50 for a set of nails every month or so invest that money in a poly gel kit and a UV light and your set. I got a poly gel kit and a light off of Amazon for under $50 and have done my nails at least seven times and have three more sets left in the tubes. It takes time and practice but worth it if you want to save on that expense a little. Let’s talk nails 1Let’s talk nails 2

    Very nice! I looked into a poly gel kit but decided to try out a dip powder kit instead, I am a bit intimidated by the poly gel lol. I love doing my own nails now and not having to pay so much money each month. Maybe I'll try out poly gel next!

    Poly gel comes out smooth no need to do a big amount of filing unless you are doing the shaping. Also doesn’t have a string smell just the base and top coat do a bit.

    I’ve been using a dip kit my daughter got me for Christmas and it’s such a learning curve! But I’m determined not to waste her gift.

    Dip kits seem so easy in theory. I got poly gel to cut down time on filing and shaping the tops of the nail

    I often fail between “theory” and “real life”

    I went to school for 6 months to be a nail tech when I was younger and no one in the class could figure out or master the UV gel nails. I personally would never attempt that as a DIY. Some things are better left to the licensed professionals.

    I've just started trying out polygel too and so far I really like it better than the dip powder and acrylic I've tried.Let’s talk nails 3
