When I first heard about gel nails, it sounded like a miracle! No chipping for up to 3 weeks? So when I got my nails done before Thanksgiving dinner, I decided to try them out. At the local salon, there were about 10 colors that I could choose from the gel nail selection, mostly reds, pinks, or beige's. I choose a fun bright magenta that looks good in day or night. So far I have had them for two weeks and there has been no chipping, not one little chip! I highly recommend it! The pedicure was an extra $15, but in the end, it is so worth it!
