Over It: Gel Manicures Have Ruined My Nails

I’ll freely admit to being a manicure addict. I own over 20 bottles of polish, always carry a bottle of whatever color I’m currently wearing so I can fix chips immediately, and generally feel kind of naked without a manicure. In an effort to make my manicures last longer, I’ve been alternating regular manis with gel manicures for the last eight months or so. I loved how long the polish would go without chipping (weeks!) and that it never lost its gleaming shine; the only flaw, I thought, was that the color options were a bit limited.

An At Home Manicure That Just Gels

I love having a manicure, but get bored at the nail salon, so I was thrilled about Red Carpet Manicure’s new At-Home Gel Manicure line. The line, which includes a LED light to help set your gel polish, gives you everything you need to do your own gel manicures at home. Why bother with gels? They last much longer — up to two weeks — and won’t chip and crack like regular manicures. Buying everything you’d need to do it at home will cost around $80, which is equal to about three salon gel manicures, so it’s totally worth it. Plus, Red Carpet already has more than 20 great colors, with more coming this winter! Gel on!
