My Gel Nails Journey

Hello ladies. How are you all keeping? Today I would like to write how it came about that I started to do my nails.

My first ever encounter with false nails were actually acrylic nails. I started to do them on myself. However my nail plate is... weird and they only stayed on for a couple of days. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures from those days.

Then my best friend from college introduced me to gel polish. I started to extend my nails with tips and applying gel polish onto it. I was doing gel polish nails with tips for 11 months. However, back then I was still working as a laundry assistant and because gel polish is to be applied thinly, my nails had no chance of surviving at work :( I needed something that was stronger than gel polish without it being acrylic, so I decided to buy myself a beginner's gel nails kit.

I have been practicing gel nails on myself for a couple of months. They stay on for weeks. I change them every 2 - 3 weeks, firstly because my nails grow so fast under gel and secondly I get bored fairly quickly of the colour and design.

Couple of weeks ago, my friend "sacrificed" her nails and for the first time I did nails on someone else than me. I was fairly happy with the result and I hope my friend was too.

I also did my nails during that weekend, however for my colour I used the SOSU "Vanilla Sky" Nail Polish that I will review soon ;)

I guess all that is left for me to do now is practice. Eventually I will get better at it every time I get to do nails on someone.

As a side note, I will be doing my nails for Tenerife. My friend and her mom also asked me to do their nails. I will show the outcome on my Facebook page! So go ahead and like it :)

Do you girls get your nails done? Are they acrylic, gel or gel polish?

That's all for today! Thank you for reading.
