|Gel manicure using Gelish Soak-Off Gel Polish. Nail Art designed by Danielle Candido.|
While I chose colors and Danielle designed a work of art, I learned all about proper nail prep (no water), care and maintenance (keep your cuticles and nailplate fed) and best practices for removal (no peeling). I kept my manicure for a really long time (more than four weeks) and I was stunned to find that not only were my nails free from damage, they were stronger than they were before the gel manicure. Gelish is a vitamin-rich formula that encourages continuous Keratin absorption into the nailplate and that, along with the proper removal technique, makes all the difference.

I also received the Gelish NOURISH Cuticle Oil that I applied twice a day and it is officially one of my new favorite things. It’s a delicious blend of Grapeseed Oil, Kukui Nut Oil, Sesame and Vitamin E that not only gives your nails all the nutrients required, it smells really good. Sometimes I apply it just so I can get a whiff of it.Right on time for autumn, Gelish has introduced the Get Color-Fall collection that is full of bold, rich colors and wearable glitters. Here’s a sampling of some of my favorites from the collection. Don’t you love the names? To see the full collection visit the Gelish website and while you’re there, take advantage of all the educational information provided because after all, beauty shouldn’t hurt!
