|Affordable Gel Manicures|
By Melissa Tosetti
I have several friends who swear by gel manicures. They love that their nails dry almost instantly under an LED lamp. They love how the manicure stays close to perfect for 2-3 weeks rather than 2-3 days. Still, the $40 average price per salon visit can be prohibitive.
For those of us who prefer to do our own nails... and those who want the gel look without the $40 price tag, there are now at-home versions which can pay for themselves in just two applications.
The Red Carpet Manicure Kit contains everything (except AA batteries for the LED Light) you need to get the gel manicure look in your own home:
The kit can be purchased at Ulta, Ulta.com and RedCarpetManicure.com for just $59.99.
If you regularly have your nails done at a salon you're likely spending $680 per year. Purchase the Red Carpet Manicure Kit for $59.99 to start doing them yourself and you'll save $620. I have a feeling there are a lot of things you would rather spend $620 on than your fingernails.
