Bluesky Gel Nail Kit | Why I've Stopped Paying For Manicures

Bluesky Gel Nail Kit | Why I've Stopped Paying For Manicures | Tea And Beauty

Painting my nails is one of my favorite things to do, it really calms me and the end result is guaranteed to put a smile on my face. However it does annoy me how much and how quickly it chips, so imagine how happy I was when gel polish come about.
I started going to the salon to have them done but at £23.00 a time, who can afford that every month really? So I started having them done for special occasions, my birthday, Christmas and I had them done before we went to New York. 

One day I was reading XameliaX's blog and came across her post about the Bluesky gel nail kit, and better yet Amelia was raving about it. So guess what I got for Christmas? Yes you guessed it the Bluesky gel nail kit. So I sat there on Christmas morning after we had opened the presents and walked Rufus, and painted my nails.
First of all I absolutely love the LED nail lamp that comes with it, not only is it small enough to carry around with you, but it is touch sensitive and turns off after 30 seconds - the right amount of time for curing your polish.

As for the polish I was slightly skeptical, even after reading Amelia's post, purely because I tried gel polishes before myself and they have been less than good. However as I sit here typing this it has been 8 days and there's not a single chip. It's going strong still and I am one happy bunny. The polishes are easy to paint on and once you have wiped the tacky gel off, they turn out to be really shiny. 

All you have to do it buffer your nails to rid the shine, base coat, 2 colour coats (I did 3 with a glitter polish), top coat and finally wipe the tacky gel off the top and you are done in around 30 minutes. easy! It does come with instructions, which is a good idea to read through but it is very easy to use.

Now I know people always say getting gel polish off is a nightmare, however with the gel remover and the gel polish remover pads it's easy as pie. Soak the pad in gel remover and wrap the foil around your nail and leave for 15-20 minutes. It then slides right off with an orange stick. My nails still looked happy and healthy even after removing it.

I honestly think this is such an amazing kit and so worth the money, the polishes themselves come in at around £6.50 from JustBeauty or Amazon.
The kit itself is currently £44.99 from JustBeauty.
Have you tried this kit yet?
