Gel Nails

So, one thing I taught myself how to do during my blogging break is gel nails. Not just gel polish, but actually using builder gel and nail forms to extend my own nails. I have been trying for years to grow out my natural nails... I've tried taking biotin and applied various nail strengtheners, but no matter what I tried, my nails would break before getting to the length I wanted.

I found this YouTube tutorial and got the necessary items to try it myself. Much to my surprise, I was able to do this, and it wasn't even as tough as I thought it would be! I love having longer nails and having a lot more room for nail art! I like that I do them myself, and I am in control of everything. I can take my time and really make them look the way I want them to, and I don't damage my nail underneath!

Here are some manis I have done featuring my new nails!
