Luckily, Amazon has a ton of amazing at-home beauty products if you still have not been able to create your own home beauty salon just yet. For example, Vishine’s Gel Nail Polish Starter Kit is an amazing product if you love a gel manicure.
This kit comes with six neutral gel polish colors, a base coat, a top coat, a curing LED light and nail art tools. The product’s description says that it’s a great kit for beginners, so if you’ve never given yourself a gel mani, don’t worry.
To get started, prep your nails with the nail file and other included tools. Then apply a thin layer of the base coat to get the best results. Next, select your gel color (any brand of gel polish works with the kit’s LED light) and apply thin layers, curing under the light in between each coat for 30 to 60 seconds. Finish your nail look with the included top coat, and you’re all done. According to Vishine, your gel mani should last for about two weeks!
One of the best parts of this kit is the fact that the LED light has an automatic hand sensor, so you don’t have to click an on/off button each time. The light comes on when you place your hand underneath and turns off when you remove it.
One happy customer said, “I like this kit because of all the additional tools, gems and such. As long as you follow the directions on timing for using the light and use thin coats (like they do in the salon) it works like a dream!”
Another reviewer highlighted how much money she’s been able to save with this kit now that she doesn’t have to go to the salon as often.
“I have already saved a bunch by doing my own manicures. I have already given myself 6-7 manicures and multiply that by about $30 each. You do the math. The savings are there.”
While perfecting the at-home manicure takes some practice (and patience!), it’s a great way to save some money and master a new skill.
