Nail Gel BARGAIN!! So happy! :) :)

I am in love with my new at-home gel nails kit I posted about here. It only came with four colours tho and I'm used to having hundreds of colours of regular polish, so I knew I had to up my collection! You can buy CND Shellac for around £15 each on eBay, which is tooo much for me. So I did some eBay searching and found UV Gel Builder sets. Essentially little tubs of nail gel, they're generic and so lots cheaper. I bought a set of mixed solid and glitter colours, they said there was about 8ml in each tub, compared with 14ml in my Gellure nail polish.
 
Here's what I got! :)
Top left are all the little tubs, and top right is the comparison size to regular nail polish. So it's about two thirds of the size, not bad!
Bottom is all my purple shades, the colour names seem a bit random at times but the colours are gorg!
 
These are my pinks, browns, blues and greens! :)
 
Whites/silvers, reds and then 'others' on the bottom.
 
And THE most amazing part - I got ALL of these (28 colours) for £16.99!! I got them from this listing. I am sooo happy with them. The colours are so pretty and there's lots of variety.
 
I also bought some cheap brushes to allow me to use them and also do nail art (£2.45 from this listing).
 
Aaaaand lastly, on my spree, I bought some nail art tape (£1.50 from this listing).
 
And here's my first nail art attempt (stubby nails sadface):
I used misty pink, a purple nail art strip and glitter silver. This should last for two-three weeks!
 
What do you think of my bargain? Have I tempted anyone to buy the at-home kits??
Let me know!

  1. You've definitely persuaded me! Do you use the gels as you would Shellac etc? X

    1. Exactly the same! I just use the wee nail brushes to apply it on my nails, and cure the exact same length of time as Shellac! Sooo many colours and such a bargain. :)

    1. So easy, check out my last post for instructions - you need a few things to start, like the lamp and a top and base coat, but once you've invested in that you can get tons of cheap colours like this and after 30 mins you've got a three week manicure! :)

  6. Hi Ya Lauren, I bought something very similar and I found that it cured on the top but underneath it was still liquid, maybe I am doing something wrong I don't know, But like you I thought what a bargain, better than paying out all that money for Shellac, but for me, for whatever reason it didn't work. So how long did yours stay on for in the end?? Do you have any advice for me? Thanks. Fiona xXx
