$1.99 Gel Manicure? Sign Me Up!

I'm not one of those girls who paints my fingernails.  Toenails?  Yes.  In the Spring and Summer.  Painting my own fingernails has always been a challenge in and of itself.  Sure, I can get my left hand just fine, but use my left hand to paint my right and suddenly I go from salon quality to 2-year-old quality.  Not only that, but the polish chips off so quickly!  I find myself loving getting gel manicures at the salon, but don't want to spend the money to do it twice a month.  Then there are the at-home systems and I don't want to spend the money to buy something that may end up being a huge flop and costing me $70.

Well, this past weekend I discovered the most AMAZING nail polish.  While I'm not a fan of SinfulColors (it's too thin), I AM a fan of SinfulShine with Gel Tech!  It goes on thick, dries fairly quickly and has the most amazing shine!  Best yet, it's lasting!  I've had it on for 4 days now without any chipping!  I'm determined to see how much longer it will last.  Before, I could only go a couple of days before chipping occurred.  They don't have a whole lot of color options yet, but watch out for this!  It was only $1.99!  After finding out I loved it, I headed back and bought 3 more!  This particular color is called "Rebel."  Fantastic!  Can't wait to try the others!  Stay tuned!  I might have to put this in a giveaway in the near future!

  1. I am so exited to try this polish! I recently was sent a Sally Hansen gel set and UV lamp from Influenster, and it's not that awesome. I was super bummed! But this seems like its a great alternative!

    1. Yeah...I wasn't sure about the Sally Hansen kit and I really didn't want to spend that much to find out it wasn't all that great (pretty cool you got it for free...I have still yet to get anything from Influenster)! I got really excited about this polish, though! You'll have to let me know how you like it (and what color you try)!

  2. I loooove Sinful Colors... even the regular ones. I like the consistency a lot... I think it goes on very easily. I usually don't have to do more than 2 coats either so it's not TOO thin for me. 2 coats is usually my limit! haha

  3. Girlfriend, if I could get my manicures to look like yours, I would always do my own nails! You must have a steady hand!!

  4. Um, sign me up, too! I get pedicures in the spring and summer but I never bother with my nails. Regular polish chips too quickly and gel or shellac is expensive and I feel like it ruins my nails underneath, plus to have to pay to have it taken off. Is that polish easy to remove, and does it do anything bad to your nails? I'll have to try it!

  7. Thank you so much for sharing this. I don't paint my nails that often either, but when I do I want it to last. Love the color you chose.
