I’m one of those lucky people whose nails are naturally strong and grow quickly. I am also one of those people that always has chipped polished within a day or two. I don’t really have the time for the upkeep, especially if I am out of town. I was excited to test out the new UV gel nail manicure.
Just like in a regular mani, cuticles are pushed back and nails are filed. Nails are also buffed, so the gel adheres more strongly. A drying coat is applied to each nail, with drying time and light in between. A second coat is applied and then allowed to dry again.
My nails truly were completely dry. No help needed to get my keys from the technician! And they were perfect the entire duration of my trip. They lasted almost 3 weeks. 💁
