My First At-Home Gel Manicure Was a Raging Success - and I Got Everything on Amazon

If you want something done well, do it yourself - and if you want to stop paying $35 for a gel manicure every two weeks, buy some supplies and learn to paint your own damn nails. Regular manicures are very important to my overall self-care routine, but the price tag that comes along with shiny gel nails often isn't feasible, even for those with a bit of disposable income. A few weeks ago, after paying $65 for a pedicure and a gel manicure, I hit a wall. I logged on to Amazon and proceeded to sp...

Are Gel Manicures Bad For Nails?

As a woman who loves to have her nails looking so fresh and so clean throughout the week, I often reach deep into my pockets and shell out the extra cash for a gel manicure. What appeals to me the most is that I can't mess up a gel manicure for a good two weeks. Normal polish chips, cracks, and peels within the first few hours that I leave the salon, unless I try really hard not to use my hands until the polish is fully dry. But over the past few years of opting in for a gel mani so that I didn...
