Nails ~ Purple Gel Polish with Gelish Glitter Top Coat

At Home Gel Nail Polish
I haven't did a nail post in quite sometime and truth be told, I do my nails once a week but not with gels. When I want my polish to last up to to weeks, then I do gels which is a longer process because I do them myself.  This is the gel nail polish that came in the set of 36 pots that I reviewed awhile back here, the set for $45 which is a good deal.  I talked about how well they performed and even made a YT video so you could see them up close.. it's all in the post!

Nails ~ Color Gel with OPI Comet In The Ski

Color Gel with OPI Comet In The Ski

After a week of gardening and re-potting plants, my nails were in dire need of a new mani.  I'm getting better using my new electric drill, I do plan on writing a blog post and doing a video demo using it.  The color I choose was this beautiful lavender, these are the color gel pots that I purchased from TMart.  This color applied a little streaky.  I only use two coats because they are both file off and soak off, but the more you use, it's definitely difficult to remove using either method.

Nails | Deborah Lippmann Across The Universe Glitter Polish Review

At Home Gel Nail Polish Review
 ASP is a soak off gel polish that's quite watery.  It took three coats before I was happy with the color.  After applying the third coat, I applied the Deborah Lippmann glitter polish then cured it under the light.  You can always use any kind of regular nail polish over the gel before curing it.  Usually many people wipe the sticky coating off the gel before applying any kind of regular polish but it's really not necessary.

Nails ~ Fuchsia Color Gel from JunYu Nail Systems

Fuchsia Color Gel from JunYu Nail Systems

Awhile ago I posted a Blog post along with a video showing these gel nail pots that I ordered from China, well this is the second gel color that I used from the set.  I didn't post the first color I tried because it was mainly for experimental purposes, but I must tell you that for the price of these gels, they are excellent!  Click here to read my review on these gel pots!

Nails ~ 36 Gel Nail Color System from China Sold in the US + Video


I felt like a kid in a candy store when my package arrived and saw all these little tiny pots filled with beautiful gel colors.  I could hardly wait to open them so I could record every little detail in a video just in case you're interested in ordering them for yourself.  For $45 you get 36 gel nail colors, they also carry them in 24 and 12 color sets.  You don't get the choose the colors but I didn't have but one or two duplicates in my entire package.  These are actually available here in the US because the manufacturer has a US Distributor where you can order them from.

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.

Nails ~ ASP Brown Sugar Gel Polish with Martha Stewart Glitter

At Home Gel Nail Polish Review

I've almost perfected the at home gel polish techniques thanks to all the at home nail techs on YouTube.  This gel polish was by far the cheapest at $7.99 that I purchased from Sally's and I really liked the color so I though I would give it a try.  Yes it was a little runny and I had to shake like crazy before every stroke, but in the end, I liked how the manicure came out.

Nails ~ OPI Gwen Stafani's Comet In The Sky Glitter Polish

OPI Gwen Stafani's Comet In The Sky Glitter Polish

These three nail colors really compliment each other.  The OPI Gwen Stafani collection has some beautiful glitter polishes and this was one I picked up.  I do plan to pick up a few more for the limited edition polishes before they're all gone because I can see them selling out fast.

Nails ~ Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Top Haute



I'm so in love with the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel line, my goal is to collect every polish in the collection, so far I have eight in counting.  I've worn this color "Top Haute" for one full week, then I decided to use a glitter for a different look.  I've chosen OPI Divine Swine glitter because the two color were very similar.

Nails ~ Gel Nail Overlay Using Soak-off Gel Nail System

Gel Nail Overlay Using Soak-off Gel Nail System
I decided to do my nails using regular nail polish without the base gel underlay.  For the past month i've been using the base gel, the gel polish and the gel top coat only to find I was still experiencing chips after a week.

Nails ~ Soak Off UV Gel Nail System

 Soak Off UV Gel Nail SystemI'm totally in love with this kit!  So far i've used it three times and I feel like a pro. I did not use the white tips because I didn't feel I needed them and preferred to let my natural nails grow. These are the main items in the box. I found out that the Clear gel and the Builder gel is the same consistency so I just mixed them both together. The Cleanser & Prep smells just like alcohol so once that's gone, I will just use alcohol.  The French Bonder is like a nail protein, it's the first item you apply right after cleaning your nails. I did not use the Brush-on Glue because I did not use the tips.

Nails ~ U/V Gel Light Nail Dryer Soak-off Gel Nail System

U/V Gel Light Nail Dryer Soak-off Gel Nail System

If you watch my videos, you'll see that i'm not much of a nail person. Matter of factly, when i'm going out I just wear press-on nails and take them off once i'm home.  This is mainly because i'm a Wigmaker and nails seem to get in the way when i'm ventilating.

Nails ~ Light Less Gel Nail Kit Review

This was my very first attempt to do my own nails and I was very pleased with how they turned out.  I went througbh 3 jumbo nail files needless to say I realize I will need to invest in an electric nail file if i'm going to continue using this product or similar products of this kind. Overall I give this product a rating "A" because it was very simple to use and the products provided in the kit was worth the $17.99 I spent from Sally's Beauty Supply.
