B Gifted: At home gel manicure kit

I'm not sure how she does it but my sister Whitney is notoriously good at picking out presents. She never has to go off a list (even though I always provide one) and always manages to surprises me. She gifted me an at home gel kit for Christmas and it was been the gift that keeps giving. With a full-time job, I don't always find the time to re-paint my nails every 2 or 3 days like I use to and with NYC rent prices the option of going to the salon every weekend is non-existent.

The red carpet gel polish kit is similar to exactly how you would receive a gel manicure at a salon. Prep your nails with prep solution, apply base coat-put nails under light, apply one coat color-put nails under light, apply second coat of color-put nails under light, apply top coat-put nails underlight, wipe clean with post solution and done!

Some self nail painting talent may be required but with practice and patience you'll nail an awesome manicure. My gel manicure from this kit typically lasts me 5-7 days. OH and don't worry, there are plenty of color options...
