Gel Nail Update: Using Regular Polish

In case it hasn't been readily evident from recent posts, I'm obsessed with at-home gel manicure. I've done a gel manicure kit review, as well as a pictorial and a tutorial, so I won't get too into the nitty gritty here. Instead, I'm going to talk about a little subscriber-inspired experiment I did using regular nail polish. When I created my latest manicure using the Red Carpet Manicure's Pro Kit, the shade Paparazzied, and the Platinum Ice Gem & Jewels Kit, I swapped in butter LONDON's Bobby Dazzler on one nail. In a nutshell, regular nail polish works! Instead of drying when exposed to UV light, you will have to wait for the polish to air dry, making nail art a little trickier. However once the Brilliance coat is on, it acts like a normal, long-lasting gel manicure. In short, if you want to extend the life of your manicure with normal nail polish, investing in a gel manicure kit might be worth it!
