i should call it the notw (week)!
i must have been hiding under a rock, i just had my first gel manicure, no, not gel nails, gel nail polish, applied to natural nails. they're supposed to last about 3 weeks and are super glossy, the best part is as soon as the mani is done, you can go about as if your nails have been drying for an hour! it's most likely due to the fact you have to set the nail polish with a uv light. OPI and everyone says you're supposed to soak off the polish when you want to remove it (15 min process) but my girlfriends at work have been peeling theirs off for months with no issues (i can thank them for introducing me, you know who you are!). the gel manicure's won't break the bank too which is awesome! for a polish that'll last up to 3 times longer than a standard mani, i think the average price is worth it. my gel mani was $25 and a normal mani is $10 (at the standard nail salon here), i imagine the prices are higher at spa's.
so, ladies, any experience with gel nail polish? i have read a lot of bad reviews and they typically come from people having their nails done at a salon that doesn't really know how to use the nail polish or they're trying to do it at home without reading up on it first!
new years plans? g and i have not made up our minds yet as to where to go! bleh
