Nails ~ Ahoy Gelaze Gel Polish by China Glaze w/Sephora Gelshine Top Coat

Ahoy Gelaze Gel Polish Sephora Gelshine Top Coat

I only do my nails once every two weeks now since i've been using gel polish.  I do go back and forth from gel to non-gel just so I can use some of my regular polishes sometimes.  For this manicure i'm using Gelaze Gel Polish in the color Ahoy by China Glaze.

I think i'm getting a little better at applying the Gel base, though I still haven't mastered the part where i'm supposed to only put a little on.  So after two coats of my clear gel base, I proceeded to use the Gelaze.  Although the polish wasn't watery, it was very very sheer.  I had to apply three coats to get the polish to show up.  Curing time under the UV/LED light was 30 mins so that was good because it allowed me to get finished quicker had it took 2 mins to cure each coat.

My favorite all time gel top coat is Gelshine by Sephora.  I've never seen a topcoat that shined as much as this one. I might have at least 4 backups of this because I found that you can cure it over regular nail polish as well. It takes 2 mins to cure, then just wipe the sticky off with alcohol and you're good to go if you're using regular nail polish.
