Regular Polish with a Top Coat of Gel? Y-E-S & Here’s How!

Posted on: June 13, 2013

Sandy Toes by BP from Nordstrom, you can purchase the BP plish from Nordstrom, it’s on sale but to get the sale price cal 1-888-282-6060, you will get 2 bottles at $4 each this way.

I am going to add a top coat of gel to this manicure, tomorrow. You have make sure this plish is thoroughly dry. I have been doing dishes and washing windows today. I’m not confident that my nails are 100% dry.

Comeback tomorrow to see the instructions of what I did and the outcome.

💅 As always, thanks for stopping by!

**UPDATED**. (The Sally Hansen at home gel system was sent to me as a sample to review by a PR firm representing the company)
You can add a gel top coat to any polish, the key for success is to make sure your nails and polish are 100% dry. Even when using a quick dry top coat, it takes a full 24 hours for your nails to dry completely. So wait, at least 24 hours after painting your nails. This morning, before even washing my face or hands I applied a gel top coat to the BP Sandy Toes I’m wearing and plan on wearing until Friday afternoon. Step by step, here’s what I did:
1. Wipe each nail with an alcohol pad. You could use plain Isopropyl Alcohol on a cotton ball.
2. I applied a thin layer of gel top coat from Sally Hansen at home gel system on my thumbs, cured them under the light.
3. I wiped each thumb with an alcohol pad
4. I did Steps 1-3 on my nails.

I’ll let you know if there are any problems.

💅 As always, thanks for stopping by!

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
