DIY GEL MANIS
The success of salon-only gel-polish manicures such as CND Shellac and GelColor by OPI has opened the door to at-home systems that aim to achieve similar insta-dry, long-lasting results. One caveat: Be sure to apply the base coat, polish and topcoat in thin layers—too thick and it will peel—to bare, dry nails. (Any lingering water, oil or hand cream will negatively affect how the colour adheres.) Between each coat spend a few minutes under the LED lamp, and you’re done. The best part? Removal doesn’t require a salon visit, since the kits contain a super-powered acetone remover.
