I have a not so good update on my at home gel manicure. It is already chipping. However, I am not quite ready to swear off this product all together.
The top picture shows the chips in my at home gel manicure. The second picture shows me crocheting.
Why? Because I think that is what brought on the chipping. Crocheting may not seem like it would do much damage, however, I have been working on a significant crocheting project the past week. When I am working on the squares I am frequently using my nails to pull and tighten the yarn. The chipping is exclusive the fingers I am using most to crochet.
So ultimately, I think this at home gel manicure has the potential to hold up for a week or more with normal wear and tear. I just think it’s not quite strong enough to stand up to direct abuse. For the $5 I spent on the kit I don’t mind.
If you go easy on your nails I think the at home gel manicure will hold up well for you!
Have a fantastic weekend!
