Whether you're in a salon or doing it yourself at home, the standard gel manicure process is pretty simple: Prep the nails and cuticles, apply a base coat, two coats of polish, and a topcoat. The only difference is that you'll need to "cure" each layer of polish under a UV lamp until it hardens (usually somewhere around 60 seconds). You'll also need to swipe your freshly manicured nails with some alcohol to remove the sticky layer of moisture that rises to the top while during the curing process.Read more

Last year, I discovered a nail fad called Apres Gel-X, which is a type of nail extension that's supposed to be less damaging than the acrylic kind but just as durable, so I decided to go to my nail salon and try them out for myself. The verdict? I loved them! The problem? The cost. When my go-to nail salon closed due to COVID restrictions a few months back, I figured it'd be the perfect time to invest in the Apres Gel-X Extension Kit ($94) and try my hand at creating salon-worthy manicures on my own.
Dip nails are a type of manicure, and a fantastic alternative to acrylic or gel nails and nail polishes. The basic process involves removing all existing polish, shaping, and applying a bond or dehydrator to remove any oils and debris. The surface is then built up using a base coat and natural powder for thickness and durability. Next is the color. A couple of layers are applied using the base coat, after which you would dip the nail into a pot of highly pigmented powder, or pour it on the nail. The process is repeated a few times for each nail, depending on the effect you want to achieve. The look is finished off with a sealing or activating coat to harden the powder and a top coat for that extra beautiful, fresh manicure shine. You can do dip powders on both natural and false nails, making it an excellent option for everyone.
