If you love extensions, you will definitely fall for the magnificent gel nails. They are nail-friendly, pristine, and of course, a significant attraction. Today, you can quickly get these gel nails done at home. When it comes to doing the professionally done nails from the comforts of your home, you would think it will cost you heftier than going to a salon. However, all you need is a few essential things that will fit in your budget. Here’s what you will need and how much it will cost to get started:
#1 Cuticle Nipper
Your first step to gel nails is to prep your nails by cleaning the cuticles and giving it a smooth finish. You must push and trim your cuticles. For this, you need a cuticle nipper. A good nipper will cost you somewhere around £5-£10.
#2 Cuticle Hydrating Oil
Your cuticles need hydration after all the filing and trimming. Invest in a good cuticle oil that will come under the range of £7-£15. It is a significant investment that will caress your nails.
#3 Gel Polish
Good gel polish is essential to make your nails look flawless. You can buy these in the range of £5-£10. Depending upon your choices you can go for the expensive ones.
#4 LED Lamp
LED lamps are an unavoidable part of the entire process that gives an instant finish. These lamps come in different price ranges, but £12-£20 would suffice for home-based use.
You can complete your gel nails within a budget of £30, or you can buy a gel nail manicure kit that comprises all these items; it will cost you the same.
