Before we get into it, three important things.

  1. If you are weird about feet, this post is not for you.
  2. If you are cool with feet, good news, I shaved my toes for you and everything. 
  3. I’m living that fading out spray tan life, so pardon the orange splotches.

I am the worst person to take to a nail salon. 

I paint my nails never. In fact, I keep them super short and plain like a toddler. 

Toe nails, sure. But nothing on my hands. I am just too clumsy and I pick at everything and constantly put my hands in my mouth. 

But then my friend Kelly surprised me with a gel pedicure for my birthday, so I shaved to as far as my pants would roll up and went into it with mediocre expectations. 

Holy shit. 

It stayed, like, forever. 

I ran into furniture, dropped stuff on my feet, and never wore shoes; and there it was- perfect. 

In fact, the gel stayed unchipped and perfect until I finally had to remove it because of grow out. 

But here’s the thing, I cannot keep paying over $80 for a gel polish change in a salon, let alone find time to do it. 

Enter my amazing friend Krista, who was like, whoa you can do this, like, at your house, so take your pants off and live your life, girl!

Krista was my sherpa, leading me through all the products and steps to this introvert’s wet dream gel pedicure. 

That’s right, you can give yourself a super easy and amazing gel manicure and pedicure in your house.

Gel polish, foundation and top coats, a nail file, and a gel light lamp dryer. 

Invest in this stuff once, and you’re good to go for a while. 

Here’s what I use:

I have saved literally hundreds of dollars from this small investment, and it’s super easy.
