Don’t be “gelish”
January 20, 2011

Don’t be “gelish” of our long lasting manicure. Think acrylic nails without the damage. Our super shiny gel polish hasn’t so much as chipped, smudged or budged since the application (granted that was only last night but we’re hopeful).

The process takes a bit longer, but the polish dries instantly and is supposed to last two weeks. After cleaning up our cuticles, the manicurist applied a series of bondants before actually painting on the polish with a paint brush. Then we had to zap our nails in that UV light machine for a while to dry it completely. Even though it’s a new technology, there’s quite an array of gelish colors to choose from, including french. The whole process took a little over an hour but when you’re done it reallly is dried completely! You can pick up keys, wallets, men: whatever you want.

Gelish is a bit more of an investment. At Wynn Nail Spa on Wilshire, we paid $35 for a gel application and manicure. You can get gelish without the manicure for $25, but it is not recommended. Our nail techs were precise and very knowledgeable; with a new technology like this, it’s essential to get someone who knows what they’re doing. We def recommend Wynn Nail Spa, for a clean and accurate nail enhancement experience in the LA area.

Let’s review: more time and more money for a shinier, longer lasting manicure. Are you in?
