Gel nails nighmare story

First.. I should tell you guys that I love long & nice looking nails. In 2013 I've decided to do my own gel nails at home, so I watches lots of videos on youtube and read lots of articles about it. Later I've realized I should talk to someone, who actually knows how it works, so I visited a beautician near my city & get my very first gel nails.

I wanted something simple, but nice & elegant, so I choosed a french manicure with tiny hot pink glittery stripe. Since I normally had my natural nails long it wasn't anyhow hard for me to do things such a like typing on my mobile phone or lift up some things. Your nails are also pretty strong, so I found this helpful, because my natural nails are quite easy to break if I'm not wearing any nails polish..

~What's gel nails~

Gel nails originally referred to nail extensions made using a hard gel product hardened by curing under an ultraviolet or L.E.D. (light emitting diode) light.

~Different gel~
There are two types of gel, hard gel and soft gel. Hard gel gets its name because, once cured, is tough enough to be made into a nail extension. Soft gel refers to the gel products that are too soft to create a nail extension.

To apply gel nails takes about 2 or even more hours, depends on the practision of your beautician and what gel (& also paint) do you want. You should visit your beautician to refill your gels nails every 3-4 weeks or if you have any broken gel nail.

The second time I went to (already refill) my gel nails I've picked up another french manicure, which is really girly & elegant. This time I decided for light pink glittery nails, which are really simply looking.

I also have ordered my own white, clear & base gel, UV lamp, nail clippers, different nail files & more stuff that you need to do your own gel nails at home. I've tried to do gel nails for my mom & sister, but the gel just hadn't dry (I don't really know what was wrong, maybe those gel were not the best quality). Anyway, I'm about to try to make gel nails using my natural nails, so let's see if it will be better this time.

I'm sorry to say this, but... I DON'T recommend gel nails to anyone, because those tips & nail glue will completelly destroy your natural nails. It took me about 3-4 months to get my healthy natural nails back. It was so easy to have a broken nails and also impossible to have long nails that time.
