When it comes to gel nail polish, I have to admit, I am super behind.
In all the years it's been available, I only tried it a few weeks ago. :P
The reason behind my apprehension was because I like to keep my nails short and the fact that I need to get gel nails removed professionally.
But because my friends are all into it and have been doing it for quite some time, I finally decided to give it a try during a visit to Beauty and Butter, Megamall.
The reason why I love getting my footspa and mani-pedi's here is because their "Butter Girls" have really light hands. It never hurts and their tools are always sterilized and sealed before use.
So back to gel nails...
I am one of those people who manage to botch their manicures mere seconds after it's done. No matter how careful I try to be, it just ALWAYS happens.
And this is why I have turned into a gel nail convert.
For clumsy people like me, gel nails are perfect. They dry sturdy and quickly after a few minutes under UV light. Once pronounced dry by your manicurist, you can abuse it any way you like :P
And they will look perfect until the day you decide to have it removed.
To counter my short nail fetish, I just trim them even with the polish still on. I don't recommend this but it works for me especially when I get too busy to schedule a trip to the nail salon and I cant stand the "long-ness" of it anymore.
But of course, it's always better for the health of your nails to have it removed professionally within a couple of weeks getting them :)
So I think gel nails in a bright red are super perf this Holiday season cause it'll last you 'til New Year and all the parties in between!
