Many girls at Jackson like their nails done all pretty and nice, but have to pay a lot of money to do so. This weekend I went to get my nails done with a friend and the end result was unpleasant. My friend, Amy, did her nails and toes and I did my nails which ended up costing $130! When we were out the door she said she didn’t like the color because its too light for her skin, but she didn’t have the heart to tell the lady to redo them. As you can see, it can be a waste of money and time. Recently I have figured out how to have great nails that don’t chip that’ll save you from wasting your money
First, you’ll have to buy a UV or LED nail lamp. This will dry your nails in under a minute instantly. These usually cost around $30-$150 or more depending on how big it is, what brand it is, and where you buy it. Then you need a shellac nail polish which probably cost around $8-$12. Lastly, you need the bottom base nail polish and the top nail polish specifically for shellac, which should cost the same as the nail polish.
All of this cost between $46-$174. This can save you money because you can do all of this in 10 minutes, you can also do it whenever you want over and over, and pick out the color you want, rather than doing it every 2 or 3 weeks and spending $100. I believe this is easier, faster, and worth looking into if you want to save your money.
