I FINALLY Got a Gel Manicure!

I'm totally indecisive when it comes to nail polish. I even like to paint my nails every day, if possible. So, I've been avoiding getting a gel manicure because you basically have to commit to a color for two weeks. For me, that's a fairly large chunk 'o time.

But my friend was going to Princess Nails (in Concord, NH) to get acrylics put on, and I figured I'd tag along and maybe get a regular manicure myself. That simply didn't happen. The second I walked though the door, Emily (who is super nice) showed me oodles of colors and finishes that can be done in gel-form.  I had no idea there were so many options! I seriously looked through ll the different colors for about 20 minutes before deciding on the gorgeous OPI Cajun Shrimp hue. It's a gorgeous coral, with hints of pink, and has the tiniest bit of shimmer to it.

Since I've always doe my nails practically daily, I usually don't think anything of picking at my nails and peeling of the polish. So, I was a little worried that my picking would mess up the gel manicure and it wouldn't last for the two weeks that's the norm for most people. But no matter how hard I picked at my nails, or whatever chemicals I had near it, the color didn't chip, or get messed up in the least! The fact that it lasted so long on someone like me speaks volumes, not only of the polish itself, but also shows how amazing Princess Nails is!

I'm pretty much addicted to gel manicures at this point. If you haven't tried it, you need to! Price-wise, a regular gel manicure at Princess Nails is $25. Not bad for two weeks of gorgeous nails!
