What kind of manicure is this?  Is it for artificial nails?  Or is it to make polish on natural nails last longer?

So that’s what it is!  One of the salons near my house is offering a “lasts 3 week manicure” and I wondered how a manicure could last for 3 weeks.  Now I know the secret!  lol!

That sounds really cool! I’ve never had a gel manicure (or… any manicure really lol) but I’d love to try it! I hate nail polish because it seems to chip off after like 2 hours of being on my laptop (and I work all day on my computer so that doesn’t work for me).

I’ve been getting a gel overlay for about 3 years and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!  I only get my nails done about once a month and they look great! I don’t get polish (I just get the gel overlay for the more natural look that protects my nails as they grow) and the shine lasts for well over 3 weeks!

@weddingdiva-in-training: I love getting the gel overlay over my natural nails too!

I can’t really wear artificial nails or tips for the “natural look”; my nailbeds are really slender, so they always have to cut and file the tips to fit my nailbeds and they still don’t even look natural!  Frown

Great for keeping natural nails long though!

Question – does it damage your natural nails in any way?
