Excited to do your nails. Gettin’ your favorite color. Polishing your nails. Waiting like forever to get it dry. You think it’s dry, so you go and sleep, chill, shower or whatever you about to do and what do you see…either prints or the color is just one big mess on your nails. Story of my life hahaha. Let’s not forget the chipping that happends after like one day of putting a new nail color! I have found my miracle…it’s gel polish! I’ve read so many reviews on gel polish and the brands that’s out there and I was really wondering how effective these products are. Ladies, if you were in doubt or planning to buy it, I would definitely say: GO  FOR IT!
No worries, it’s not like acrylic nails or anything. It’s simply just nail polish that cures under a UV or LED lamp. I wasn’t left with any damages whatsoever on my nails. I love how fast my nails gets dry and I mean really fast! It normally just takes 60 seconds for the polish to dry depending on the uv/led lamp The nail color can stay on easily for about 1,5 to 2 weeks. Personally I keep it for one week at max. because I get bored with the color after a while hahaha. The things you need are: uv/led lamp (I have a uv lamp with 36watt). Don’t go for anything lower than 36W otherwise the gel polish won’t cure! The other things you need are base coat (for uv/led lamp), gel polish, top coat (for uv/led lamp). Don’t skip any of these products ladies, otherwise you won’t get the result you’re expecting. 
People might be familiar with CND Shellac gel polishes  but I didn’t buy the products from that brand. In my opinion, it’s just way too expensive. The top coat and one gel color that I have is from the brand called Kiss. Good quality as well! I bought mine via www.aliexpress.com. The ”brand” I use is called Cristina nails. It’s comes with more than 100 colors! You can order a bundle of colors for a very good price and the quality is excellent! CLICK HERE to order yous.

    Thats a really pretty color! Gel nails are really popular in Japan so I've gotten mine done, but when I got glitter gel nails, it was a pain to remove them so I haven't gotten them since.. I just stick to regular nail polish, but I make sure to use a good base coat and top coat so it doesn't chip so quickly!

    Hi, what country are you located in? I'm wondering how it took for your items to arrive? I bought a 24pc set from eBay for $45, I know it was risky but the seller had over 2500 positive reviews and 400 negatives, so I ordered. It's been 4wks (30 days) and i'm getting worried because PayPal gives us 45 days to dispute the claim, so i'm going to wait 10 more days and if it doesn't arrive, i'm going to file my claim.
