Glitter Galore Round 2

So I went back to my beautiful girl Tara to redo my first "Glitter Galore" pedi. I wanted to watch to see if I could ever get the UV gel off myself and maybe invest in a UV lamp to do this on my own. No cando! She had to use her drill to get off the layers of UV and then redo the glitter. I'm absolutely in love with these pedis but they're going to get pricey if I have to keep going back to get them redone. I may just do it through mid-October and take a break for awhile.

I admit they're absolutely no maintenance and could last two months with some care, but again just another bill to the monthly list I probably don't need. Plus when it starts to get cold here it's not like anyone will be seeing my toes anyhoo!

  4. Thanks Stardust! It definitely fits my style! If you do have something similar let me know~

    Marie - It was $30 + tip. It took her about 45 minutes. I'm sure any salon with gel and UV can do it. She even bought some regular glitter at Hobby Lobby and it worked great!

    Thank you Tierney, she has some great colors to choose from =D

  5. Oh my...this looks gorgeous, but the idea of someone using a drill to take polish off my toenails is kind of alarming. :)

  9. Zara - It is a bit intimidating but I guess no different than a set of acrylics

  11. Thanks Kellie! It's super fun, but I've signed myself up for $36 a month so I might have to stop once the weather cools down and I'm not showing them off.
