Where are you located?  In NYC, Groupon has had a different gel deal almost everyday.  It’s so complicated that I don’t think I could DIY but if you have steady hands maybe.

I just got a no chip for $30 and it’s lasted me for three weeks so far without any signs of wear and tear.  @heather25: is right though…you can always find a deal for these!

@roxy821:  Eek, that is pricey.  Well stay on the deal sites and see if you can find one if no one can give you better info on DIY.

Ladies! I’ve posted on my blog about how to DIY a gel manicure–no UV lamp needed! It’s very simple; it’s not an exact gel manicure but it’s as close as you’ll get for a DIY.

You can find it here.

Good luck!

yes there is a kit you can do yourself! I bought mine at Wal-mart, it’s called BROADWAY Nails, Real Life brush-on gel nail kit. It comes with everything you need, I used it and it turned out great! It lasted for about a week and a half, maybe 2 weeks, I dont really remember, but thats because I saw a tiny crack after a while and I started picking at it and ruined them 😡 But the kit was around $10 and super easy to do! The instructions are simple and easy to understand, I highly recommend it! and its cheap enough to get so you can do a trial before decidind on it for your day 🙂

and here are my gel nails…:)
