The last post I tried my own gel manicure. It was not successful. It lasted about 4-5 days. It lifted around the edges and pealed.
I went with my daughter to the nail salon and she got her nails done. These are her gel nail polish on day 12! No chipping, pealing, and in perfect condition. The cost was $30. I think this is the best way to go. Since we are still testing different polish...more to come
