So a few months ago, I discovered a brand called Red Carpet Manicure at my local Ulta. I thought it was such a great idea! Who wouldn't love to have a gel manicure that you can do yourself at home? Well, I ended up getting the starter kit for Christmas, which came with a nice red. I went and picked up a couple of other colors, including this one! The Night is Young is a gorgeous gunmetal grey with tons of beautiful shimmer.
I think it's just beautiful.
The thing that I love about gel manicures is that they last for weeks without having to touch them up. Because of their flexible nature, they don't chip, flake or scratch like regular nail polish. Gel nails are extremely resilient. I can also swatch over these if I wanted. They don't come off with non-acetone nail polish remover, so if you swatch over them, just use non-acetone remover and they'll be good as new underneath! The only downside to gel nails is that they take time to apply. This mani took me about an hour and a half in total. I guess it's worth it if you think about how long they'll last me :)
If you guys would like a tutorial on how to do these gel nails, let me know in the comments!
Thanks for reading!
