Gel Nails - a revelation!!

One thing I LOVE and that makes me VERY happy is painted finger and toenails.  Despite sometimes looking as if I have been dragged through a hedge backwards (that's naturally curly hair for you!) I do think you can look extremely polished with nicely painted nails. 

I have been known on occasion to paint only the toes that can be seen peeping out of summer sandals (yes, you do that as well, great welcome to my club) but there is nothing I like more than a good manicure or pedicure.  My trouble is, they always chip after a few days and so end up costing me about £5 a day for the pleasure of being groomed.

A few weeks ago my nail technician (what a ridiculous job title) told me that they were using a new gel based polish that lasted for 3-4 weeks without chipping.  It was a little bit more than my regular manicure and so I went for it.

Ladies, let me tell you - BRING ON THE REVOLUTION! 

It was amazing, it lasted for 3 weeks and 2 days before I got my first chip.  Sadly, I am now sporting very chipped nails as unlike normal nail polish you need to make a return trip to the salon to get the polish soaked off - I just haven't had the time to do this but if you have a special occasion or are going on holiday then I can highly recommend this process.   My next question is how long until the likes of Chanel develop these formulas so we can self mani?!!

Peace and Love
