Gel Moment by Belvada for at home gel manicures like in the salon

Well hello there Gorgeous!
The gel manicure can make your summer vacation a lot easier! How? Because it can last supers shiny and chip free for up to two weeks.  Now that sure takes the worry out of packing polish and paying for a manicure before you leave town and having it only last a few days.

So, let me introduce you to Belvada brand Gel Moment. The polishes are $14.95 and all you need to make the gel polish last longer is a LED curing light.

I was sent a sample of 2 polishes: a Great Gatsby tone in Lavender Allure and a modern 2013 Pantone trend in Midnight Kiss plus a portable LED curing light.

Oh what fun! Enjoy this short video demonstrating how the system works.

Things to note:
1) I did not have a special gel nail cleanser, just used my nail polish remover.
2) I did not have a special gel nail clear top coat, I chose not to put any on.
3) I only put one coat of gel nail polish on and cured it, instead of the professional salon procedure of putting 2 coats on plus a top coat. Why? Because I do not keep acetone on hand which is required for safely removing the gel polish like the salons do. So, I put one coat on!  I'm going to see how it holds up to house remodeling and horse back riding! Update soon!

Here is the Belvada website for you to learn more about the brand.
