DIY Gel Nails

If you’re anything like me, painting your nails with normal varnish is a challenge! I am impatient in waiting for them to dry and so usually end up doing some household task too soon afterwards that results in them smudging. I also tend to apply too much varnish and they smudge no matter how long I let them dry for. Not forgetting trying to paint my right hand...oh dear!

I tried to use gel about 15 years ago and it was a disaster so I figured that's it, I can’t do this. 

However, the products out there nowadays are so much better so I thought I'd give it a go.

I was surprised at how easy it is, in fact easier than normal varnish! Not only this but it’s saving me so much money. For all of the equipment necessary (and colours) it’s cost me 3 visits to the salon!

I use products by Bluesky Cosmetics but there are loads out there so have a look online. This is the link to their start up kit

Check out their website, they have lots of amazing tutorials and more methods of painting your nails if you fancy getting more creative.

Here is my video showing just how easy it is!

This website signals a new chapter in my life and although I miss teaching dearly I am super excited to see what the future holds. I am incredibly lucky that I get to work alongside my partner Brian and that we get to share many incredible experiences together.

The aim of my blog is to share all of this with you, I hope my honest opinions might prove useful to you in some way, give food for thought or even a little bit of inspiration!

Most of all thank you for joining me!
