This Is How To DIY Your Manicure Like A Pro

If you’re the thrifty type who likes to do it yourself than have we go a weekend project for you!  This easy-peasy tutorial is the answer to all your #nailgoals.

The folks at Gelicious were kind enough to sacrifice one of their Gelicious Peel-Off Gel Nail Starter Kits to the OZSALE studio- so we tested it out for ourselves and this is what happened.



Yep, those are my stubby little fingers dancing around up there. Now, I am by no means a beauty professional but I actually found that the process pretty easy to follow. The pack comes with a nail lamp, nail colour, nail primer/topcoat, and some reasonable easy instructions, that when followed, make for a flawless salon finish.

The best part about Gelicious, was the fact that unlike your average Gel manicure, these ones simple peel off when your done with them. All you have to do is soak your fingers in a bowl of hot water for 2 or so minutes. I honestly didn’t think it was going to work, but it actually did.

The Verdict? If your the kind of girl who loves a good mani without the price tag, this is an absolute godsend! Each bottle of Gel lasts up to 40 manicures, equating roughly to $2.00 a mani (which is insanely good value considering the average manicure costs around $30.00).

All Gelicious Nail Gel Starter Kits come with the following:

  • 1 x Nail lamp
  • 1 x Base and Top Coat
  • 1 x nail file
  • Cuticle sticks
  • Alcohol Wipes
  • 1 x Gelicious nail colour

To get the salon finish, all you have to do is this:

  1. Plug in and turn on the nail lamp
  2. Prime your nails with Gelicious Base and Top Coat (included in the pack), then cure for 30 seconds under the lamp
  3. Apply the first coat of Gelicious colour, then cure for 30 seconds
  4. Apply a second coat of colour and cure for another 30 seconds
  5. Apply your top coat and cure for 30 seconds
  6. Now that your colour is cured wipe away the gel layer on top with your Alcohol wipes for a salon shine finish.
