Gel Nails

I love getting my nails done and tis the season for dark polish colors. However, I ALWAYS chip my nails on like day two. I didn't want tips or acrylics because they had been so damaging to my nails when I used to get them for special events. I had been reading a lot about OPI Gel Nails and decided to give it a try. My fave nail salon is right down the street and I saw the ad that they started doing the OPI Colored Gel. I walked in there and asked for it and the owner, whom I see quite frequently, advised against it and told me to go with Gelish Colored Gel which is the same price. She stated a lot of the clients who got the OPI process said it really damaged their nails and Gelish seemed to be more gentle.

This picture was taken on day 8 and so far, so good. My salon just numbers the colors, so I don't know what the name of this color is. It's a deep blue with a subtle red shimmer.

I read about and found the products here. I plan on seeing how long they can last and will let you know the results and also how they soak off!
