Ok y'all, today I'm talking about something I'm sure most of y'all have experience with: gel manicures. I think I've only had 3-4 gel manicures in the past 2 years, but none of my experiences have been that great. My last gel manicure was on Christmas Eve, and my nails are still recovering.
I know most nail salons say that gel manicures are ok for your nails, but my nails have always been very brittle afterwards. It's been 2 months since my last gel manicure, but I can still see the dent in my nails where the gel manicure was. I've been taking biotin to help my hair and nails, but the nails are still weak. I'm also concerned about the UV rays that are in the nail dryers, but that's a completely different story.
I love the gel because of the long-lasting polish, but if it is going to take 3 months for my nails to recover from a manicure, I'm not sure it's worth it. What's your opinion on gel nails?
Have a wonderful Monday!
