Spotlight: Gelish Soak-Off Gel Polish

I had the pleasure of getting a fab mani with a gel nail brand that is new to me called Gelish, the soak-off gel polish (a separate post will be up on my mani soon). With 130 gorgeous, long-lasting nail polish shades, and never-before seen packaging, you will never forget this extraordinary brand.

The gels come in an array of colors, apply like polish, with twist cap and applicator, but are cured in a LED lamp in 30 seconds or in two minutes in traditional UV lamps, just like gels. Gelish stays on nails for three weeks with no chipping or peeling, and soak completely off in only 15 minutes.

Stay tuned for my mani coming soon.
