I Discovered gel nail polish and I love it

what I have on are the colors simply sheer (which looks like it has a pink tint but really doesn't)
and sheek white

So I Went to Sallys Beauty supply about maybe two weeks ago and I saw this brand "gelish" I originally went to buy and orange nail polish which I didnt end but buying since I got sucked in into buying this kit they had which came with everything you need (supposedly) for $30. I also bought  three colors which may I say this stuff is not cheap. A bottle of gel nail polish is $15 it was on sale for $9 which is less but still a lot for the tiny little bottle. I got home and immediately had to try it so I did. It has been 18 days and my nails still look pretty good. This is suppose to last about three weeks no chipping or dullness but by the 3rd week you can see nail growth.

The pros are!!!!
they have a pretty good variety of gel nail polish they have like 78 colors I think
It lasts quite a long time ( I still haven't seen and chipping)
its a money saver vs getting a manicure every week
great for people who are trying to grow out their nails or have very thin brittle nails ( it adds a little bit of thickness to the nails not as much as acrylics)
not as harmful as acrylics

The Cons..   tan tAn tannnn....
they are a little bit expensive (I will tell you what items you can skip in my opinion just keep reading)
can be time consuming since each coat requires it to cure under a UV lamp
watch out with the nail filling of the natural nail plate it can be damage if you file it to much
(I recommend using a nail buffer just to remove the shine and if you remove them and decide to put them back on only file the nail growth)
can be a hassle to remove them but if your into nails ahh its worth it!

In conclusion
I love the idea of gel nail polish. they look nice and clean always shiney.
  The items you really need are the Foundation coat , gel nail polish, the Top it Off sealer and a UV lamp which many ebayers sell for a reasonable price. The nail cleanse and the liquid to remove it is basically nail polish remover it has acetone! To remove them all you do is file off the first coat and soak in nail polish remover until its all gone.

Oh I almost forgot to mention dont buy it from sallys unless you like to buy over priced things.
At sally s they have the minis for the same price as a regular full size gel nail polish which is $16 you can try searching, eBay, or which is where I got mine it was like 30 cents less lol.
