Since most of our states are under orders to stay in as much as possible it makes it a little hard for some ladies to get your nails done. As much as I love a good pampering, I’ve actually been doing my own nails on and off since I was in my twenties. From Acrylic nails, to Jamberry nail stickers, to no-chip and in most recent years doing the dipped nails. I want to change my nails so often that I’d spend way too much money a month going to the nail salons. So I figured out how to do my own nails and never really went back to the salon too much. Now don’t get wrong, I still will go get a no-chip every say often and a pedi every month or so because I dread having to do my own toes and now I can leave my husband with the baby and that’s my alone time! But I figured I’d share some of the things I use to do my at home manis.
I introduce you to Peppi Gel! My favorite at home manicure. I got my Mom hooked on it, of course because I would do her manicure every 2-3 weeks! I did a girlfriend’s of mine manicure every so often while she was pregnant too. I’ve reffered numerous friends of mine to order it. Probably one of my favorite products I use. They help my nails grow as you can see from the first picture, in less than a month how long my nails grew – and that’s cutting them down, they were still that long.
Essentially this product is a cleaner version of gels and acrylics. Straight from the Peppi site “Peppi Gel dip powder is proudly free of the 9 harshest chemicals found in beauty products, vegan (cruelty free), contains added vitamin E and calcium and of course USA made”. I love this product and the owners are awesome. I’ve been using Peppi for 2 years for a reason.
