Gel polish manicures are the way to go. Seriously. A gel polish lasts two to three weeks with no chips or wear. Nail color looks glossy from start to finish. These pricey gel polish manicures were once only available at the salon, but are now at the ready for home use. The best kit I have tried to date is definitely the SEPHORA by OPI gelshine™ At-Home Gel Colour System.
SEPHORA by OPI gelshine™ At-Home Gel Colour System is a complete at home gel polish system. It contains absolutely everything you need to create a flawless gel manicure from start to finish. From the rich, glossy gel colour, the advanced LED lights, to all the essentials to prep nails and remove the gel before your next application, this kit includes it all. Sephora by OPI's patent-pending formula cures in just 30 seconds under the innovative light, for an instantly dry, smudge-proof manicure. It does not get any easier.
Like I said, it is easy to use. I was surprised at how easy the whole system works. I mean, I have watched my manicurist do it dozens of times on me, but seeing all the products and steps still seemed complicated. Then I saw the wonderful step by step illustrated flip chart that the kit includes. They thought of absolutely everything for the system.
The system includes:
- gelshine™ Base Coat - the first step in the gel polish manicure
- gelshine™ Top Coat - the final step in the gel polish manicure
- Gel Colour - you get to pick a color to come with the kit!
- gelshine™ LED Light - the most important part of the system that cures the polish
- Nail Pads - to use with the remover
- Removal Nail Wraps - it takes a while for the polish to be removed, so these wraps make it easier
- Nail Cleanser - to use pre-manicure
- Buffing block - nails needs to be buffed before gel polish can be applies to make it adhere better
- Nail & Gel Colour Remover - to remove the gel polish
- Brush-On Cuticle Oil - to soften cuticles
- Cuticle pusher - to push cuticles back before using the polish
You have a pretty good choice of shades too. There are 18 available right now with hopefully more to come soon.
I have used the system on both myself and daughter. Both of us experienced super glossy nails that lasted three weeks.
The price may seem expensive at $159.00, but in the log run, this system will actually save you so much time and money. I promise it is simple to use and worth every cent. Shop for the SEPHORA by OPI gelshine™ At-Home Gel Colour System exclusively at Sephora.
