Gel Manicures

March 16, 2011

Beautiful fingernails, long or short, can be flirty and fun….and almost a sex-symbol in their own right! It’s great when you have finally grown them out….and so oh-so maddening when one of ten perfect nails breaks right before a hot date or a night out with your gal pals. Been there a time….. or fifty!!  How about you chicka?

So you decide to go for it and let a salon, a friend, or even yourself pretty-up your hands with gel nails because you realize you need strong, natural looking, glamorous fingernails 24/7. You never know when you’re going to need to look fab on a moment’s notice right?

Gel nails are a great solution because they look just like your own nails, but us savvy glamour girls also know that the “regular” brands can be made of some pretty harmful stuff. So we’ve tracked down some brands of gel nails that use ingredients that are better for you – doing the legwork so you don’t have to. Go ahead; send us some great big sugar kisses as a thank you!

  • Quintessence – Claims of a nail product being “Totally different and superior” and contains “No harsh chemicals, does no nail damage, and has no noxious odors”! This really got our attention. The words “fast” and “easy to use” didn’t scare us off either!
  • Organic Nails – Organic Nails makes a line called “Synergy Gel,” and they offer a complete starter kit. The website isn’t super user friendly, so we dug a little deeper and found their products on eBay. Just type “organic nails” into the search feature, and you’ll find bargains galore on the product.

For rock star fingernails, you don’t need to end up harming your hands. Take a little time to make sure you’re using the right products for eco-chic nails.
