The intense of the gel nail machine’s UV light is very high, in order to create a fast drying-up effect. It is very undesirable to expose your hand under inside the UV light machine.
  2. You need top buff the top of your original nails so that the gel nail can be attached to them better. This remove the natural protection layer to your nail. Not only causing your nail to be thinner and making them broken easily, your nails will prone to be infected easily by bacteria.
  3. The gel nail remover, Pure Acetone, is harmful to your fingers by drying them off.

OPI has been my favorite nail polish. Its website has a new function that you can choose your skin type and the nail polish. The programme will automatically show the end result so that you will know whether that color suits your skin tone.

It is very famous that OPI has a wide variety of colors compared with other brand. I particularly like its Matte Top Coat as it can make your nail polish in Matte. It is like creating a different color from your original nail polish. However, the latest OPI nail polish that I bought are not very long-lasting compared to before. Previously, the nail chipped after 10 days, but for the latest version that I bought, it chipped after 7-8 days which is quite disappointing. Although it became less long-lasting, it still last longer than other brands. Also, its brush and the holder are very nice to be used.

Degree of Long-lasting: Normally this nail polish last for around 7-8 days until it chips.

Advantage: Many color to choose among. Good brush and holder to ensure your nail is nicely coated. For pale colors, 1-2 layers will be enough. For dark colors, I only coat one layer and it gives satisfactory result. Its brush is wide and can cover your whole nail into 1 or 2 brushes. And the coat dries very fast.

Disadvantage: Less long-lasting compared to before but still better than other brands.
