Some say....certain things should be done by professionals. And they are actually right. I wouldn`t have surgery by my General Practitioner indeed. But when it comes to doing my nails, I`m willing to try out everything myself. Applying gellac with an UV lamp...wow I reaaalllyy wanted to try that! I`ve had acrylics last year, that`s where my polish obsession started really, and I wouldn`t choose that again. As I am very clumpsy and at work I walk around with "heavy" boxes as well, I`m always afraid some of the nails might tear or partially get ripped off bleughh.
I orderd my lovely pink UV lamp from Evulbay and picked out Gelac from IBD at one of the polish-netshops I regularly buy my polishes at. I picked out a bonding base-coat, colored Pink Kiss and topcoat. Each has it`s own cure-time for the UVlamp.
It resulted in a lovely glossy healthy pink colored gel layer. It`s not too thick as gel or acrylic nails would be, but it`s a bit thicker then normal polish would be. Other polishes can be used over it...and can be cleaned with regular polish remover (acetonefree ones ofc). This Gelac is a so called soak off gel...should take up to 20 minutes soaking in acetone to get rid of the layers. The only thing that worries me a bit is when my nails will grow...it will leave a gab between my cuticles and the gel..how will I restore it?! Will see about that ;)
