I was introduced to Gelish about 6 months ago, I can’t remember how, but this stuff’s a life, time and money saver. I have the knack of chipping regular nail polish in a day and it drives me crazy. You spend R200 on a manicure and the next day it’s ruined, very frustrating. I’m a hands-on person and I’m on the computer a lot so I need something, well, indestructible. Enter Gelish by Nail Harmony.
The product sets within 30 seconds under a UV light, and soaks off in 15 minutes. My Gelish manicure lasts for about 3 weeks with no chipping or peeling, and when it starts to grow out I fill in the gaps with a regular polish in a similar or darker shade to extend it for another week. I’m not sure how or why, but my nails underneath are stronger than they’ve ever been. I’ve got those nails that bend and break and are generally pathetic. I asked Annie, my nail-technician at Sorbet Parktown North about this, and she said she’s had a lot of customers with similar results. It’s a win-win situation really, at least in my experience. A Gelish manicure at Sorbet costs from R185 upwards, depending on the fanciness of the treatment you’re after.
