MANICURE: UV & LED Gel Nail Polish

UV LED Gel nails are very convenient to do and easily affordable. Unlike the normal nail polishes avialable in the market these gel nail polish once cured under a UV lamp stay on your nails as long as 3 weeks. 

They are avialable in large variety of shades and effects like chrome, mettalic, pearl and matte and are low maintainance. You can even do it at home take 20 minutes tops!

If you are planning to go for for Acrylic nails then UV gel nailpolishes are the best choice. You can also shape your Acrylic nails in variety of shapes like Square, Soft Square, Round, Pointed, Slanted etc

I got my Acrylic nails shaped in a soft square at a local nail art parlour called "The Glam Root Studio" in South Delhi. They were very friendly and affordable as compared to the rest of the expensive nail art parlours near my home.

She had a huge variety of shades and various kinds of stones to apply on nails as well!! I went for the basic red shade as it would look really nice on my black dress and would also match my jewellery. Always go for the shade that compliments your outfit and complexion.

My shade is a orange - red by Gelish Gel Nailpolish 1022 

You can easily purchase this shade from Aliexpress or Amazon India.
