Hi! In one of my local shopping outlet places there's a beauty shop which had the W7 gel nails kit and polish for just £39.99 for the starter kit and £5.99 for the polishes! I bought the kit and two polishes. I the kit you get the light (which is glittery), everything you need to do and remove a gel manicure and three polishes; a base/top cot, a bright pink and silver. I also bought a light pink and a beautiful purple!
I haven't really used gel polishes before so I was really excited to try this! I was even more excited when I realised the light cures/dries each coat in just 30 seconds! These are the steps I followed;
Shape nails, push back cuticles etc.
Using very thin coats and taking extra care to keep away from my cuticles I applied the base coat to both thumbnails and cured for 30 seconds.
I then applied base to one hand, cured for 30 seconds and then repeated on the other hand.
I then repeated those two steps for two colour coats and top coat.
I used the cleanser and a lint free pad to remove the tacky layer and my mani was complete!
I find it easier to do both thumbs first as your whole hand doesn't fit in the light and you can keep both thumbs flat if you do them separately anyway!
This is the result of my gel mani!
I love having such a fast drying and long lasting mani so I'll definitely be using this more! Especially over Christmas when I'll be more prone to chips wrapping (and unwrapping) presents etc. Also gel nails are fab because you can use a neutral colour for work, add a glitter/nail art for the weekend, remove the glitter/art and keep the base on! I'll show you more shades soon! In the meantime you can buy your own W7 kit gel nails kit and polishes here (http://www.w7cosmetics.co.uk/product/gel-nail-salon-kit/)
