Gel Nails : A Try Out

Confession : I am a manicure virgin. Or, at least, I was, until this Saturday. My bestie and I decided to pamper ourselves and let our nails done professionally. Such a treat!

We both opted for gel nails (€ 40.00), in stead of just gel polish (€ 25.00) or plastic tips. I'm really interested to know how long gel nails last in stead of just a gel polish, and plastic tips just really aren't my thing. I prefer to still feel my own nails for a more 'natural' look.

The treatment itself was v relaxing. Color-wise, I went for a 'safe' option : a bright orange-y red, very similar to one of my favorite polishes, Essie's Canyon Coral. I'm sure I won't get tired of this color when it's on my nails the next four weeks.

Although my nails have an extra layer, they don't bother me or feel unnatural or foreign. All in all, I'm so pleased with the results and I'm very curious about how long they will stay.

Have you ever had gel nails? What are your experiences?
