Use Gelish for your at-home gel manicures!

Recently I got my hands on Sally’s At-Home Gel Manicure kit, and I firmly believe this little machine will put your local manicurist out of business. It’s so easy to use, so quick, so FUN, you’ll never want to pay for that shellac manicure again!

Ever since I got the kit, I’ve been on the lookout for good gel polish! Gelish sent me a package of 4 polishes, and I quickly tried them out! Here I’m wearing ‘Tiger Blood” a fun orange-red color! It goes on beautifully, and lasts weeks! The thing I love the most about gel manicure is the no-chipping, no flaking quality of it. It really lasts and lasts!

  • Utilizes specially formulated soak off gel technology
  • Lasts up to 21 days with a beautiful shine
  • Special designed color pigments

Gelish Soak Off Gel Nail Polish is a unique formula that lasts up to 21 days on natural nails and the application out performs other Soak Off Gel Polishes. Excellent coverage with quick and accurate cure times, and a easy removal process. Special designed color pigments create the ultimate in Soak Off Gel Polish.

Gelish Soak Off Gel products do not damage the natural nail plate and can be removed between uses or can be filled like traditional in salon services.

Sally Hansen’s At-Home Gel Manicure Kit will change your life!

THINK: Salon results at home, no manicurist necessary.

I was sent this kit to try out for myself, and I have to admit – I was very skeptical. I’ve had shellac manicure’s done in the salons, and I couldn’t imagine doing that MYSELF at home, and having it turn out half as good as it does in the salons. Boy – was I MAJORLY wrong. This kit is so easy, so user-friendly, if you can paint your nails – you can give yourself a shellac manicure at home.

What do you spend when you go for a gel manicure? $25? That’s what I spend! Now, you can save HUNDREDS of dollars doing the exactly same manicure in your own home! It is so simple to use, you won’t believe it!

I’m wearing the gel polish I put on last week, and it still looks brand new – like the day I put it on. I will NEVER go back to the salon again. Not when I can do it myself – at home!

Best part is, the kit is super affordable! I can’t believe this only cost $70. Pick one up yourself, they’re available now!!
