I'm not sure if you've heard me mention my upcoming birthday (only 384895 times), but it's in 9 days! I'm really hoping to reach 1000 followers by then, if you'd like to help. Also, in 9 days I'm headed to Disney World to celebrate, so I'm clearly still 9 years old. And yes, I just went there in February. What can I say? I love to travel. And when I do travel, I love having a gel manicure. Here's how to:
Why Gel Nails?
I think the biggest complaint with polish is that it chips so fast, depending on the brand. What makes gel nails awesome is that they can last up to 3 weeks! They're great for weak nails too. I was sent a kit from the lovely Maria at Nailuv. I love having a kit because I don';t have to go to a salon and can do from the comfort of home. Nailuv's gel nail polish formula is a long-lasting, smudge-resistant soak-off alternative to nail lacquer that can be applied and removed at home. LED and UV-curable, Nailuv’s gel polishes glide on smoothly for a sheer or mirror-glass finish, and removes easily. There are currently 36 long lasting, very durable high-shine finish gel colors to choose from.

How Do You Do Gel Nails At Home?
Make sure nails are clean and dry. Paint a coat of the bonder and allow to dry for 30 seconds.
Paint a coat of the clear base coat and cure for 30 seconds (2 min with UV lamp).
Thumbs are recommended to cure separately.
Make sure to keep the product on the nails and not the skin.
By the way, how cute is that heart-shaped lamp??
Next comes the fun part! Choose one of the 36 shades and paint a coat. Be sure to paint the tips/underneath of nails. I'm using Lovestruck, a pretty glittery raspberry shade.
Cure for 30 seconds.
Add a second coat of the polish and cure again.
Paint one last top coat and cure for 30 seconds.
Use the cleanser and wipe away the top sticky layer. Use the remover to easily soak away gel polish. Enjoy your shiny gel manicure.
