As I get older, I find myself becoming more of a girlie girl. By no means am I, in any way, high maintenance in my ways but I do find myself indulging a little more on myself these days.
Having said, I will jump right in to tell you that for the last year, I have been getting my nails done once a month. I started off getting acrylic nails with a french manicured look and then I changed things up by switching over to my own nails with a gel polish. I purchased spa tools so that I could do my own pedicures. I save a lot of money doing my feet myself and it makes me feel less guilty for indulging on my fingernails. Whatever works, right?
Now, I am over the moon excited because my sister just finished a course and has officially become a nail technician. Do you know what that means? Yes, my toes and fingernails will never go bare again! I have a nail technician in the family and because I’m her sister, I get her services for half off the regular price. Oh and how I plan on taking advantage of this!
My sister has set up a nail studio in her home in the White Rock/South Surrey area. Nails by Gina grand opening will be on December the 1st of this year. In honour of her grand opening, she is offering one of my readers a giveaway of a free set of gel nails ($40 value).
What are Gel Nails?
Gel nails are a type of artificial nails that most closely resemble the natural nail. They are similar to acrylic nails, but still different. Gel nails can come in any color and can include many different patterns and designs.
Pros of Gel Nails VS Acrylic Nails
Gel nails last for a longer period of time than other artificial nails and polishes.
This artificial polish does not chip.
Leaves a glossier finish.
Gel nails do not produce any odor.
There is less filing and shaping required during application.
The curing and/or drying time is quicker when using a UV light.
There is less of a chance of smudging or ruining the manicure when using a UV light and LED light.
