So anyhoo I kept looking at different brands. I've gotten the CND (c&d?) shellac at a salon and thought that was the only way to go. Then a gal at work started showing up with cute manis that she was doing at home and was using Gelish. That appealed to me because we actually do have a Sally supply store here so I could buy local. But THEN! I was reading blogs one morning and came across this post. Here's a lady who had already been doing her nails for a couple/few years and had tried out this product, Couture gel nail polish. I was curious so I clicked the link to the website. Really, it was the variety of colors that got me. And it comes with an LED light which I know the Gelish brand also uses so I can probably add those colors into the mix as well. I was sold.
Yes, it's an investment. But even going to Walmart to have my nails done I would pay $20 and usually tip $5. I opted to buy the deluxe package that comes with 3 colors and then I also ordered one extra and Jan also ordered some colors too. I found a coupon code on facebook for 15% off. So for the price of roughly 5 manicures at Walmart I now can do my own at home. In my pajamas.
It came in the mail yesterday so of course I had to try it out last night!!!! Pictures are not the greatest, turns out it's hard to get a good picture of nails! And it was at night so lighting is a factor as well. The first one is probably the truest to real.
I'm glad I decided to finally buy the kit! Now I'm looking for more colors! Neon would be fun :) Tee hee
