Saturday Staples: essie Gel Setter Top Coat

It always amazes me how one week, you could have nothing better to do but lay on the couch, eat cheetos, and binge watch Mad Men every day after work. The next, you’re running around like the world is about to end, wondering how you’re going to get everything accomplished. How it happens? I don’t even know. No children, nine to six job, and a relatively small commute.

Go figure

With all the running around and recent tightening of my budget, my monthly upkeep has become a little bit expensive. At twelve dollars a manicure (plus tip), I’ve had to reevaluate how often I can afford to get my nails done. I know, doing it at home would save me time, money, the works. But truth be told, I really don’t have the steadiest hands, yielding less than desireable results.

After a recommendation from a coworker, I think I’ve found the perfect solution. I have recently been extending my manicures by putting essie Gel Setter top coat on my nails twice each manicure. One right after I get home from having them done, and one about four days later. In truth,Β I’ve actually been pretty shocked by the results. The top coat doesn’t give you the same gel manicure you would receive in a salon, but it gives your nails the strength and durability you would expect. My nail polish has been lasting way longer than usual! In short, it’s amazing.
