I know some people are quite wary of trying actual gel polish, including myself, but companies like RCM that make home kits make it SO EASY. In total, I took about 40 minutes to finish my manicure, but the best part about gel manis is that there is zero wait time. Once you are done, there is no denting, sheet marks or smudges to be had. Your manicure will be shiny for weeks! I have had my nails for one week now and they look just like in these photos from Day 1. Seriously.
I am wearing two coats of the deliciously black Black Stretch Limo* and three coats of My Main Beach* as it was quite sheer upon application. Perhaps a little too sheer for my liking. If I plan on wearing neons again, I will take the same route that I do with regular polish and put a white polish down first.
I have talked about Red Carpet Manicure before and this is still one of my favourite brands for gel polish. You can find Red Carpet Manicure at London Drugs.
