Back then, I could never understand why people (including men) would spend money on nail polish and pedicure when they can easily apply it themselves.
I tried the manicure services in a few different outlets and if you ask me, I will not pay more than
RM 40 on basic mani/pedi. Totally not worth it because basic nail polish only last not more than 2 weeks.
Normal nail polish (Jessica in light purple)
But my theory is that Pedicure can last way longer since our feet don't do much work besides walking.

Anyway, I have been wanting to try Gelish for the longest time (standard price starts from RM 60 and above) Gelish does not chip, peel, is fast curing, and can last for up to 3 weeks or longer depending on your daily chores.
Gelish french manicure (now)
Normal french manicure (can't really tell the difference apart from the shininess/thickness but I assure you it is way more lasting. No matter what I do, wash, touch or bang I no longer have to worry about my nails hoho!)
P.S I've got butterfingers and clumsy so yea..
Gelish (pastel orange/pink)
Gelish takes up to maximum 4 minutes to dry under the UV light and there are two methods to remove the gel colour:
1) Using the nail file (a lot more harsh on your nails) or
2) Soak off method (takes about 15 min using the correct solution)
Check out MichellePhan's tutorial on how to apply gelish nails, I think this helps a lot if you want to give it a try on your own.
OPI is also launching its Gel Color, available in 30 shades!
