How To: Gel Nails At Home!


Today I tried out gel nails for the first time!  At first I was very nervous about the whole thing as I am not a nail expert nor am I very good at painting mine in general...so I fully expected this to go horribly wrong.  To my surprise it didn't!  I used the Red Carpet Manicure Gel Polish Pro Kit which comes with a professional LED light, Max Adhesion Prep, Base Coat Gel, Seal & Shine Top Coat Gel, Nourishing Cuticle Oil, "Red Carpet Reddy" Nail Gel Polish, Pre & Post Application Cleanser and Nail Gel Polish Remover.  Phew!  That's a lot of stuff...especially for a total beginner like me!  Can you see the concentration in my face?!  Thankfully the kit also comes with very clear & concise instructions and it was actually very easy to do!


I was extremely pleased with the results - I did my nails during Emilia's nap time and when she woke up I was ready to go about my day with beautiful shiny, glossy nails without having to worry about them smudging or getting messed up.  The manicure is supposed to last a few weeks which sounds AMAZING and suits busy moms perfectly but I can't comment on that yet so I will give you an update soon!  

The Red Carpet Manicure Pro Kit is available for €95 here and individual polishes retail for €13.50.  To watch my full tutorial on how I did my at-home gel nails, click here
