We all know that gel nail polish lasts longer than most regular nail polishes, but a gel manicure can get pretty expensive time after time. To save money, a lot of us try the DIY route. I’ve actually tried a few different DIY gel polish kits from some of the most popular nail care brands out there but I wanted to share my opinion on the Haute Polish Gel Polish kit because it’s the only one that actually worked like a salon gel manicure; plus it’s safe for pregnant mommies.
First, watch the short demo video I put together so you can get an idea of how easy it is to do your own gel manicure with Haute Polish.
Seems easy right? That’s because it is. The Haute Polish Kit comes with just about everything you need to create a salon quality gel manicure. The kit costs $99 and comes with the LED light dryer, cleaning/finishing wipes, removing wipes, touch-up wands, three gel nail polishes and a buffer/file. The only things I would like to see included the kit are a base coat and a top coat.
Unlike some of the other gel polish kits out there, the Haute Polish gel polish actually lasted two weeks on my nails without chipping off. I just put a regular nail polish clear top coat to give it a bit of shine and protection and it worked well.
Here’s a comparison chart so you can see how great Haute Polish is:
A gel manicure in my area will cost about $25 to $30 each visit. That means the Haute Polish Kit would pay for iteself after about four uses. That’s why I was originally turned on to the Haute Polish system and why I decided to give it a try. I’m all about saving money.
