I saw a 20 dollar UV/Led lamp at ulta and was wondering if I bought it would it be a good investment?

If you're good at it. I did a gel manicure on myself and hated it. It wasnt with a light though, it was some kit that had a setting gel or something. It was really messy.

Gel is great, super shiny, lasts forever, flexible yet strong. The only problem is you may never use your regular nail polishes again =P

It weakens the nail bed. Once u turn down the path it may be hard to come back

@Loren If I'm not mistaken, that's only if you buff too much...

I love getting gel manicures, but I have thin nails. So every time the gel comes off my nails break.

i didn't find that either my manicure or pedicure lasted longer than a regular one.
i also didn't find the shine to be exceptional.

I've been getting gel ever since it first came out (always get it done professionally) but I always wondered if its bad for your nails. Haven't really used regular polish since!

I specialise in gel manicures and I highly recommend them. They last up to 2 weeks, they don't damage the natural nail and you can pretty much forget about them once done, no waiting for them to dry nonsense. It's much better though for a professional to apply them though. You never get a perfect finish like someone else doing it on you.

Avoid the non UV sally Hansen ones at all cost, they are terrible.

I love gel manicures they last long and look nice,I have gotten addicted, but considering you are under the uv lamp for a long amount of time and you have to soak in acetone,especially if you are constantly getting gel manicures , I don't think it is that much of a good alternative to getting regular manicures.
