We’re not going to tell you to cheat on your manicurist with this easy at-home gel kit. Let’s just say we’ll present you with the facts (just the facts, ma’am), and you can decide for yourself if a salon visit is truly called for. The kit is packed with everything you need to score a proquality gel look at home—right down to a perfectly sized piece of aluminum foil. Still wary of entering DIY land? Pop in the easy DVD tutorial, also included, for a complete walkthrough
How it Works
The kit includes one Color Gel, the neutral Sincerity, so consider it your gateway shade. Next, you’ll get four supporting actors: Just For Tips, Base Gel, Top Gel, and Rose Cuticle Oil. Also included is a bevy of tools: a nail file, nail buffer, two orangewood sticks for taming cuticles, a plastic polish remover stick, and a roll of stretch tape. On the liquid side of things, there’s the Lomasi Cleanser and the Lomasi Remover. Not to be forgotten, you’ll receive cotton wipes, aluminum foil, and the curing light. If that sounds like a lot to master, don’t worry—included is a step-by-step booklet and DVD tutorial (great for a hands-free setup
How to Use
We suggest thoroughly reading the booklet or watching the DVD prior to tackling the kit, but we promise the four-step process is much easier than assembling any single piece of furniture from IKEA. Start the process with Just for Tips, basically a primer for your nails. Proceed with the Base Gel, followed by the Color Gel (the kit comes with Sincerity, but you can use any of Lomasi’s colors). Top it all off with the aptly named Top Gel. And if you mess up—no biggie: The targeted Lomasi Remover has your back.
