Gelish Manicure

I did Gelish manicure recently!

I like it.
I dont know what is Gelish about, google for it and I get is advertorials or blog entries from people that seems really happy of their manicure. This is the closest I can get to perhaps a more neutral explanation.

Gelish is a soak off gel nail product that applies similar to regular nail polish, but lasts for up to three weeks with no chipping or fading.

Gelish is a UV nail gel that is applied in several steps, requiring either a 36 watt UV or LED lamp to cure the gel. Gelish nail gel is similar to other UV soak off nail gel systems, such as Shellac or OPI Axxium. Nail gels can be applied to your natural nails, without causing the damage of acrylics. Nail growth with nail gels is covered with a fill-in coat, similar to acrylic nails. The product is brushed on like regular nail polish.

So I did mine too, as it is shown above, I did french style, cos my dearest Kim is fully booked in these upcoming week, so I’ll better do something that is lasting into Chinese New Year , and even if it starts to strip, it isnt too obvious or unglam, so I thought of French.

Information online says it’ll last 3 weeks without chipping or fading.
I guess thats the coatings for Gelish nail polish itself.

I’ll say its not so bad for a first-timer. Especially considering I always do hotel when I’m overseas.

Its like literally above a 24hrs convenience shop. You walk a flight of steps down to the convenience shop.
