At Home Gel Nails

Hello Dollies ❤❤

A few months ago I noticed this girl in my class that always had really cool gel nails. She always had funky colored tips but in a very cute sleek way. At first I just thought they were nice but didn't really think about getting fake nails because I haven't had mine done in about 4 years and I really hate the condition of my real nails afterwards. And I am really enjoying the look of natural nails that don't look so bulky!! But when I was watching youtube beauty channels I came accross a lot of people who do their own gel nails at home?! ( I seriously didn't know this was possible, don't you have to go to school for this?!) So I jumped right on Ebay and started ordering my supplies aaaaand had the absolute worst ebay experience of my life!! I just recieved my dryer today and it is May!!!! I had to deal with getting the wrong product and then sellers seriously trying to get out of paying a refund by avoiding every question I ask!! Anyways......

I rushed home today so I could try this out and man oh man was I dissapointed!! I don't know if it is the gel I bought or the Nail dryer. I am so turned off by Ebay right now. I know its cheap and you get what you pay for but come on?! Atleast work!! This took extremely long (after 30 minutes of trying to dry this I gave up and put a top coat on) and does it is definetly not what I was hoping it would look like. It is my first time so I am hoping I will get better and maybe even do a step by step tutorial (if they ever look good enough!!) but at the moment I am a little sad I trimed my nails to do this :(

I am doing my gel nails by myself too. I needed a little to find out how it works best for me and it needs around 2 hours, but i prefer the DIY cause it saved me hundreds on euros (and dollars) and i can do the nails however i want them and change it if i don't like it. I have very thin natural nails so this is just the best method for me! I use the same gel as well
