If you want to start to do gel manicures at home there are tons of gel kits out there! I started with the Sally Hansen Gel kit! The first link below is a how to with the Sally Hansen. With this kit it was okay maybe a week – 2 weeks wear. I use the  SH lap with gelish foundation (base coat) any color gel polish and top with the OPI top coat. I find this works the best. I takes awhile to master gel polish. 

The biggest piece of advice I can give you is make sure you don’t get the gel polish around the skin of your cuticle because it will lift the polish and make it super easy for it to peel away.

another tip you need to use 99% Isopropyl Alcohol not any less percentage because I’ve tried and it doesn’t ripe off the stick residue as well and will cause you to dent the manicure.
