I am a little obsessed with gel manicures at the moment. I can't get enough of them and as a result I have bought around seven new gel polishes. One of these was the Bluesky Gel Polish in Barbie, which is a bright magenta colour.
Bluesky gel polishes are basically like CND Shellac polishes only cheaper. I read some good and bad reviews on Bluesky gel polishes but I must say that I have had no problems with them at all and I think they work just as well as the CND Shellac polishes which are really expensive. I have been buying my gel polished for eBay sellers and have been really happy with their service.
I applied a UV base coat, then two coats of Barbie and finished it off with a UV top coat. I cured my nails for 2 minutes per coat under my UV lamp. I wiped away the sticky residue with a finishing solution from Sally's and I was good to go. Gel manicures typically last for up to 2 weeks without chipping or any noticable wear.
I love the glossy finish and intense colour that gel manicures give. I plan on doing a gel pedicure before I got away on holiday with some of the neon pink colours I picked up.
