Nail polish has two moods. It’ll be cooperative and will last for upwards of a week, or it’ll want to ruin your life and chip within a day or two. I always feel like I’m wasting so much of my time painting my nails because I end up having to repaint them every two or three days! I’d had enough of that and sought after a way to make my nail polish last.
Browsing through the Internet and Pinterest one day, I stumbled across this product that everyone RAVES about. It’s an easy and inexpensive way to achieve long lasting nails at home. What is it, you may be asking?
- American Classics GELOUS Nail Gel Coat
- China Glaze in Red-y to Rave
- Zoya Naked Manicure top coat
This is it. This is the holy grail product. I’ll never return to a regular base coat again. The American Classics Gelous Nail Gel Coat creates a gel-like finish to your nails and makes them last exponentially longer than your regular base coat. Now, it’s not going to give you the same long-lasting power of gel nails, but it’s pretty darn good for an at-home system.
Step 1: Apply one thin-ish coat of the Gelous Nail Gel Coat. Let dry for 3-5 minutes
Step 2: Repeat step 1.
Step 3: Apply a thin coat of whatever nail polish color you choose. Let dry 5ish minutes or until a light touch won’t smudge the polish.
Step 4: Apply another coat of the Gelous Nail Gel Coat. Let dry 3-5 minutes.
Please excuse the phone in the picture. Otherwise you couldn’t read the writing on the bottle at all. But how cute is that phone case? The best part? Only $10!
Step 5: Apply another slightly thicker layer of the polish of your choice. Let dry almost completely
Step 6: Apply the top coat of your choice. Let dry.
This takes just as long if not maybe a few minutes than your regular base, color, and top coat routine. But, think of all of the time that you won’t have to repaint your nails. Sounds like a win-win situation to me!
Have you tried the Gelous Nail Gel Coat before? Or do you have another way to make your polish last longer?
