ESSENCE GEL NAILS AT HOME
The Essence gel Nails at home coats
I bought those 2 weeks ago. I've forgotten to buy the peel off base coat, so my gel nails wouldn't last long. Once I applied it with the base coat, it is holding since saturday. I already had a UV (or LED) lamp, so I didn't had to buy that. It does work with mine, so if you want to buy them too, and you have a LED/UV, you can always try.
The nail file and hand & nail cream
Another useless product. You don't need the file and the hand cream. And hand cream is oily, so why do they even sell it if your nails have to be oil free? I don't get this, but I haven't bought it.
And now the file. I (and you) wouldn't need that, you can use a normal nail file too.
The primer and cleanser
I personally think you don't need the cleanser, you can also use nailpolish remover without acetone. The primer smells like nail polish remover. I'm not sure if it really is remover, but i think it is. Actually, its made to remove oil from your nails. And so is nail polish remover.
But what do I need to get gel nails?
Here is a list of important things:
This is a cheap gel manicure. It is easy to do, and holds for 3-6 days at regular nails. On my brittle nails it only holds one day (!) You can combinate it with every color you like, and thats why this could be such a succes. You don't have to buy expensive gel colors. The disadvantage is that my nails are damaged when I peel them off. Thin sheetlets are on my nails and it is quite painful. But when I file my nails with a 4 step file, its almost normal again. After all, I think it is a good and cheap product for starters and it is easy in use. Essence nail polish is a good buy!!!
