Gel Nails, Party on my Yacht, and Stamping!

Hey hey! So after months of trying to get my real nails healthy and taking really good care of them I decided to make the leap to gel nails. I have never had gel nails before and have always been all about keeping my real nails. The fact is though that I just cannot keep them looking the way I want to. I take vitamins, I moisturize, and I buy expensive treatments. I just have bad nails. I know several people with gel nails and they love them. I also got a lot of great tips and info from my girls in the nail community. Rebecca from Rebecca Likes Nails actually works in a salon putting gel nails on. She is really good at it and knows a lot! She gave me some great advice and I am very thankful for it. 
Anyways, I really love the way my nails came out. I took a picture of them right after having them done so you can see. I shaped them a bit more to my liking and painted them with my own polish, Party on my Yacht. I also had my very first successful stamping!!! I love it so much even though it is really simple. I suck at stamping so the fact that this turned out so nice is like a dream come true. 







The stamping plate I used is a ENAS plate that i purchased online recently here. It makes stamping SO easy! I am actually on the website now buying more! I also used their dark blue stamping polish as well. I love this brand!

  3. Your nails turned out great! I too have been plagued with crappy nails no matter what I do and my sister has the longest, most beautiful nails (she actually just filmed an infomercial for Red Carpet Manicure because of her nails!)!
    Those stamps look so cool!!

  4. I'm so tempted by gel nails. I've done my own acrylics for a while but they're not great if you're changing your polish most days.
