I am a big fan of gel nail polish. It lasts 2 weeks, is always shiny and prevents my nails from breaking as easily. Truth is though, I really think its bad for our nails. Mine are destroyed underneath. They are really weak and brittle and I can't imagine sticking our hands in that LED light every 10 days is good for us. I guess I just feel like I am so conscious of the foods that I eat, the lotions I put on my body but never really thought about my polish before.
I have decided to give my nails a break from gel and switch to a better alternative. Butter London is one of few lines that is 5 free, meaning it is free of Formaldehyde, Toluene, Formaldehyde resin, Dibutyl Phthalate and Camphor. I got this great set and experimented with it yesterday. I love the way it goes on and how it looks to have a gel like finish. The real test will be how long it will last before it chips! I will definitely keep you guys posted and do a follow up.
