So today I’m thinking of doing this post a little differently and more structured, so it feels a little more organised. I’d love to hear your feedback as to whether you like it or not!
Today wasn’t too exciting, except I spent most of it trying to get off some gel nails my sister got done yesterday. I know it’s always best to go to professionals but sometimes those who are self taught can be just as good. Especially if they share my philosophy which is; never put something on someone else that you wouldn’t be happy with on yourself. But when that’s not the case things can go downhill pretty quickly…
So my sister got her nails done yesterday (ready for her prom tomorrow) but it was one of those experiences that as soon as it was done she wasn’t happy. (Kind of like when you go to the hairdressers and want to cry about it afterwards.) But it wasn’t too bad we were just going to paint over it and that would have been that. Then parts of the uncured gel came out last night leaving gaps between the tip and her nail. Leaving her with only one option, to take them all of… So if you’re wondering, the unprofessional way to remove gel nails would be acetone nail varnish remover, cotton wool, tin foil and some warm soapy water. It’s definitely not something I’d recommend but it does work and doesn’t damage your nails too much. But we got them off and with a nice coat of nail varnish they should be perfect for tomorrow!
