Hi, guys and girls! Sweet Kara here. I’ve missed you all (as always!) and I promise I’ll start posting more regularly now that I have the free time. It’s been a hectic week, but it’s over now (thank God!).
Anyway, enough about me, and more about nails!
Today I wanted to take a look at something that all of us nailphiles love: Gel Manicure Kits. These kits were some of my earliest experiences with nails. I still remember my grandma Val getting me my first gel kit for my 11th birthday. Mom wasn’t too happy, as she thought I was too young to do my nails, but once she saw how much I loved it, she gave in. She not only let me keep g’ma Val’s present, she started shopping for nail products with me. And, thus, my love of nails began.
Of all the gel manicure kits, my personal favorite is the Sally Hansen Salon Pro Gel Starter Kit.
I bought these over the weekend, and they’ve been fabulous. One thing I love is that the drying time is highly variable depending whether or not you use a light. If you do use a light, it’ll dry in no time. If you don’t use a light, it’ll dry much, much slower, allowing you to add multiple coatings without having to rush things. Speaking of which, the coating is excellent; thick and vibrant. I’ve worn it for four straight days now, all while being busy with my hands (don’t ask), and it looks as good as the day I put it on. You can tell this is top-of-the line polish.
They say you get what you pay for. In the case 0f this gel manicure kit, you get what you pay for and a whole lot more. Sally Hanson is quickly becoming one of my favorite brands.
Of course, you guys and girls don’t have to take my word on it. As always, you can click on “See Customer Reviews” to see what others think of the product. With over 50% of Amazon reviewers giving it a maximum 5 stars, it’s safe to say it’s a high-quality product. My nails haven’t looked this good in a long time, and after the week I’ve been through, I needed it!
