Decided to take the plunge and start a collection of Gelish colours! Gelish is not cheap – it’s more than twice the price of OPI (for me anyway) and I had a hard time justifying the purchase to myself initially because I like to do my nails often, and I usually get bored of a design after a few days.
However, it does make sense to use Gelish on myself because when I do nails for others and remove nail polish for them, the Gelish won’t come off and my own manicure remains perfect. So, I started with a small collection of 8 colours.
I could use my own primer, dehydrator and gel cleanser, but I had to buy the special top and base coat for Gelish as well, so the total damage was $200++. 😦
HOWEVER, I think it was totally worth it! I’m loving my new Gelish-ed nails in Forever Beauty:
