Gel manicure knock-off: A follow up

So I promised a follow-up on the gel manicure knock-off and I am sad to report that it started chipping when I came back to work on January 2. Therefore, it lasted all of two full days. 😦 I will admit, I am really hard on my nails and have a tendency to bite and pick at my fingers. I think if someone who does not have these bad habits were to try the manicure it could last for probably about 5 days.

I think I am going to try the manicure again tonight and see how it lasts as we have a company meeting at the end of the week.

As I mentioned in my other manicure post, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Essie nail color. I am starting to like OPI too, but I have always been a huge fan of Essie. Each season I probably buy at least 1 new color that has come out. What are your favorite or go to nail colors? They don’t have to be Essie or OPI – I am always looking for other alternatives (less expensive would be amazing!).

Next time I drag out my collection I will share a couple of my favorites. 🙂
