Gel Nails… Which is the best?

Beauty/ Nails

Ok those of you who are regular readers will know that I get my nails done at a Salon every three weeks; I have Gelish nails and I love them!

Being the penny pincher that I am; I am really wanting to get myself a kit so I can do them at home! But I am confused and would really like your opinions on what to buy! I would just go for Gelish straight off but it is expensive… so I need to know what is as good as Gelish, if not better?

What kit should I buy or avoid? Would you recommend me doing them at home or am I just better off staying with my nail technician?

    I bought a gel kit when I want on Mat Leave as I couldn’t justify Gelish every 3 weeks with no income. But I used the kit a couple of times and couldn’t be bothered with it. It was so time consuming! Maybe the equipment they use in the salon is better but it was taking 2 mins to cure each coat on each nail and getting the stuff off was a nightmare. I went back to work this week and I cannot wait to start getting my nails professionally Gelish’d again.

      Thanks Claire, this is what I thought would happen with me… Think maybe I’ll stick to the salon. The perfectionist in me would like to go every two weeks instead of three though and I just can’t afford lol x

    It’s funny because I was reading a review over at Katie & The Kids today about a kit that she has been testing! It sounds really good I’m quite tempted myself 🙂
