So instead of normal nail varnish, I’ve invested in using gel and a UV lamp. There are many benefits, here are my main reasons for choosing gel over nail polish:
1. They last much longer - 2 to 3 weeks, depending on how you’re using your hands and also how precise your application is.
2. Nails stay shiny throughout, and you don’t get those ugly print marks if you don’t let your regular nail polish dry for enough time.
3. Once they are cured under UV, they’re done and you don’t have to worry about using your hands or smudging!
4. The gels never get tacky/sticky over time like normal polish, so bottles last forever. Also because of this, if you make a mistake on your nail, it’s easy to just wipe off and start again.
The gels I use are from the Jessica Geleration range which cost £13.99 per bottle online. There are lots of other options! The UV lamp can cost anything from £50 upwards.
So, it might seem quite expensive at first, but it is a great investment that will save you money in the long run!
