|Perfect Pink Gel Coat|
The only time I ever had gorgeous, glossy, chip free nails, is when I broke down and got a "gel manicure". Oh, how I loved not fretting over spending the time and money on a fresh manicure, only to look like a street urchin, within a day or two.
Sadly, the process wreaked havoc on my nails. After a few months, my once granite hard nails, were as thin and slight as rice paper. It took a year for them to return to normal.
Last week, after 6 months of wearing barely there pinks, like Essie's Sugar Daddy
, I thought it would be nice to switch it up and go for a little cuh-lah
. They were glorious for a few hours...What I want to know is how they could possible have chipped while I was sleeping.
I tried to patch them with a coat of sheer and a similar shade that had emulsified into a goopy mess in the 3 years it has resided in my medicine cabinet. Honestly, they looked like awful. I removed all the polish and did the unthinkable and polished them myself with Salma Hayek Blush Peony Nail Lacquer
... suffice to say, at least they looked tidy.
Today while doing a Sephora run, I stumbled upon a product in the checkout aisle that I never heard of, Perfect Pink Gel Coat.
I wasn't crazy about the price point, 30 bucks seemed steep, but I loved the promise of what it might be able to do for my nails.
