Many companies have released at-home gel manicure nail polishes. Basically, you buy a special top coat for it and it should deliver the results of a gel manicure you would get at a salon with a UV lamp.
I bought the top coat and a “jovial marooned red” named Gala-Vanting.
I applied two coats of the color. It went on smoothly and gave me good coverage. After waiting 15 minutes for it to dry, I applied the top coat and let that dry. This is what my nails looked like the same day.
Not bad looking.
The manicure is supposed to last for two weeks. Here it is after one week.
The right hand isn’t looking so great.
Would I recommend this? No, I wouldn’t. I think it’s not better than the regular Essie line. I would tell you to just buy from that line instead.
Solely for research purposes, *cough cough* I would try one more shade from Gel Couture to see if perhaps I have better luck with other shades. If you haven’t bought this yet and are contemplating it, you’re not missing out on anything spectacular.
Are there any at-home gel nail color products you would recommend?
