Gelish Soak-Off Gel Polish at Nailaholics

Most of you are probably familiar with gel polish. In fact, nail salons these days offer various brands. But what are their differences? Which one is the best? To be honest, I’m also on the lookout of “the one”. I’ll be attending a wedding in the U.S. early next year and I’m kinda planning already on where will I have my nails, hair, and makeup done. Well, it’s more of the bride asking her entire entourage since she can get a package for everyone. Hehe! Since I’ll be flying in 3 days before her wedding, I thought why not just have my nails done here in Manila? We all know how expensive a manicure service is in the U.S.! So, that’s the reason why I’m trying out gel polish again! A few weeks ago, I was able to try Gelish Soak-Off Gel Polish at Nailaholics Nail Salon & Spa. Gelish Soak-Off Gel Polish is the preferred brand by most of Hollywood’s most esteemed nail technicians, including those who do the nails of Adele, Lady Gaga and Khloe Kardashian. The process of application is actually the same as the other gel polish brands. First, the nail technician applied a clear base. Then, she used 18G LED lamp to cure it. Next, she used a cleanser. Then, she applied the nail color and used the LED lamp in between coats. I...

TONYMOLY Tonynail Enamel Remover Review

I haven’t tried any Korean nail polish remover until recently, which is this TONYMOLY Tonynail Enamel Remover. How is it different from other polish removers available in drugstores? Here is my Tonynail Enamel Remover Review. TONYMOLY Tonynail Enamel Remover Product Information Quickly removes even the most stubborn nail color as it strengthens the nails. I love TONYMOLY Tonynail Enamel Remover because… it smells good!!! It smells acetone at first but it changes to a sweet floral scent after a few seconds! it does not dry out my cuticles, nails, and skin. of its packaging. It comes in a push-down-turn cap to make sure you close the bottle nice and tight. It also has small opening to prevent the liquid from evaporating fast. it can remove regular polish easily. a cotton pad with the right amount of Tonynail Enamel Remover can clean at least 3-4 nails – which makes it inexpensive! easily available in all Tonymoly boutiques. my nails do not get that “white film”, unlike other drying nail polish removers. it’s affordable at PHP 128 for 150ml! I wish TONYMOLY Tonynail Enamel Remover… is available in a smaller size. It’s only available in one size. Tips on TONYMOLY Tonynail Enamel Remover Dispense an appropriate amount on cotton pad. For glittered polish or polishes that are quite hard to remove, leave the soaked cotton pad on top of your nails...

Recently, I was introduced to the new Zoya Naked Manicure. I initially thought it’s just a collection of ordinary polish in nude shades. Well, apparently, it’s not. Read more about the Zoya Naked Manicure System after the jump. Zoya, the world’s leading cruelty-free nail polish brand, developed a nail rejuvenating system that promises to bring back the health and natural beauty of the nails – the Naked Manicure System. It works in two ways: First, it provides instant cosmetic correction – which means nails will look flawless (perfected free edges, neutralized discoloration, refined surface and leveled nail plate) instantly, and of course, with a natural finish.
