Has anyone been experimenting with doing their own nails during Covid closures?
I’m desperately in need of a manicure.
I’m so desperate that I’m considering buying an in-home kit.
The nearest I can tell there are two types: Dip powder and UV light kits.
I’m leaning toward using dip powder.
You paint your nail like normal with a special polish then dip your finger into a little jar of acrylic powder which then bonds to your nail.
The other kind uses acrylic gels which you shape into a nail using a heinously toxic chemical then adhere the nail to your nail bed using UV light to cure it.
But, I’m not sure my nail shaping skills are honed to perfection.
Honestly, I just need something to strengthen my nails so that they can grow out.
No matter how many vitamins I take, I can still bend my nails ever so easily.
Genetics, that’s what it got me – brittle nails and hair that’s falling out.
Anyways, if you have two cents to share about these types of acrylic nails, please LMK via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment below.
