Gel Nail review

I finally got around to trying Gel Nails almost two weeks ago.  I wanted to give it enough time to decide how I liked it.

To be honest, I'm still on the fence.  I love the fact that it stays put and you don't have to worry about it.  At almost two weeks since I had it done, I have only one chip on my thumb and I've started picking away at where it's grown out from my cuticle area.  And now, I can't stop picking at it.

The pro is that it lasts a while and continues to look great for a week.  It goes downhill from there.  I enjoy painting my nails, and changing it up often, so I think I'm going to do the gel nails only when I have really big meetings or go on vacation when I don't want to bother with nail polish.

It's an awesome idea and really a great product, but it's just not for me.  I'm going to buy some acetone tonight to soak the rest off and go back to painting them a couple of times a week!
