With the state of the world being what it is, there's never been a better time to invest in your own gel manicure tools — especially if you're the type who likes to keep their nails perpetually polished. "Salons are opening and closing and opening and closing," says nail artist Tom Bachik. "It can be a difficult time to go to the salon and have your nails done." Buying a gel manicure set he says, is one of the best ways to get professional-level nails on your own time. Plus, as nail artist Gina Edwards points out, using one at home rather than traveling to a salon is far safer these days.
