Salon Gel Nails At Home

If you have ever wondered if there is a way to get salon gel nails at the comfort of your own home, I’ve got good news for you! There is a way to do it and for a low cost too. All you have to do is run to your local Target or Walmart.

Once you g t to your local Target or Walmart snag one of these SensatioNail polish to gel transformers. These are only $25 and change which is definitely affordable for gel nails. With this you can either purchase their nail polish colors or transform any regular nail polish to a gel manicure!

It’s also easy to do instructions:

1) Prepare your nails for application of gel polish.

• Remove all polish from nails

• Wash and dry hands

• Push back cuticles with the slanted edge of the manicure stick

• Use the silver side of the double sided nail buffer to shape nails.

2) Buff nails with pink side of the double sided nail buffer.

• Buff until natural shine from nail is removed

• Remove any dust from filing and buffing

3) Squirt some of the gel cleanser onto a lint-free wipe and wipe off each nail

• Do not soak the lint-free wipe, simply dampening the wipe is enough

• Let nails dry for around ten seconds after application

4) Apply one coat of gel primer to each nail

• Use sparingly

• Let dry after application

5) Apply a thin layer of the gel base & top coat to the dry nails

• Avoid the skin alongside the nails and cuticles

• Cap the top of the nail by running the nail polish brush along the nail tip

6) Place nails under the LED lamp for 30 seconds

• Place hand under plugged in LED lamp and the sensor should automatically turn on the light

• The light will automatically shut off after 30 seconds

7) Shake the color gel polish or regular nail polish and apply a thin layer to the nails

8) Place nails under LED lamp for 60 seconds

• Place your hands under the lamp and it will automatically turn on. Once it turns off you will have to put your hand under the lamp for another 30 seconds

9) Apply a second coat of color gel polish or regular nail polish

• The light will automatically shut off after 30 seconds

13) Squirt the gel cleanser onto a lint-free wipe and wipe each nail

• Wipe until each nail is smooth to the touch and there is no sticky residue

• If necessary repeat step twice

REMOVAL: Picking off the shellac manicure or removing it incorrectly can cause damage to your natural nail; however following the proper removal technique will ensure your nails remain unharmed.

This manicure can be removed in three easy steps:

1.) Use the gray side of the Double Sided Nail Buffer to buff the shine off of the polish on your nails

2.) Soak nails in pure acetone for at least 15 minutes

• The longer you soak the nails the easier the polish will come off (don’t do this for more than 30 minutes)

3.) Scrape the dissolved polish off of the nails using the manicure stick

4.) Repeat each step however many times is necessary to fully remove the polish from your nails

I followed these steps and my nails look amazing and are definitely salon grade nails! I was super happy with how this product works and recommend trying it out!
