One day while getting a pedicure last month, I saw a customer getting what was called "Gelish - Soak Off Nail Polish" nails and she seemed uber impressed. I made a note and thought if I got serious with work, I'd try them.
Just this week, while pointing out floor plans and information to customers, I wished my nails looked professional. At my next pedicure, I asked about this "Gelish" nail procedure.
I LOVE THEM!!! It is a thickish product that gets spread on your nails repeatedly, nails "set" in the UV machine and then voila' - your nails are dry the SECOND they are done. No drying time, no waiting, no going over to the "dry the wet nails" section.
And, no "tips" - the product goes over your personal nail. Long or short. As you can see, mine are short, but I took a side picture to show you how natural it looks overall.
I asked for the French manicure, but most options are one color and it would have gone faster. Check out the info online and then ask your local salon if they offer it. These last up to 3 weeks and you just get them redone - no "filling".
Anyone else tried the Gelish nails too?
Clarification: There are 2 different products - Gel Nails and "Gelish" Nails. With "Gelish" nails, there is no sanding, the product is soaked off and reapplied. I read online some salons do lightly sand off the top of the product before soaking off the product, but mine does not. Ask your local salon if they offer or can get "Gelish" brand products. After one week, my nails look brand new and I am tough on my hands.
