From students to someone with a profession that does not allow you to have your nails done – this is to you who seeks a nail design that is super natural, yet chic when seen up-close.
A clear gel mani is just a regular gel mani, but with clear gel UV polish. That’s all there is to it. You can get it done in a salon, or you can do it yourself at home with a UV light, a layer of clear UV base coat and one or two layers of clear UV topcoat. Doing this at home, yourself, is recommended because this method does require a little maintenance, which can mean a lot of trips to the salon. But if going to the salon is what you’re into, then by all means…
Why have boring nails when you can try clear gel nails that honestly require zero effort?
If you prefer polish, you can rest assured knowing that a clear base will help your manicure go the extra mile. And the possibilities are endless (and just as practical) with nail stickers, gel, dip powder and acrylics, too.
