The Ramona nail polish, Freedom polymer topcoat, the oxygen smoothing base coat, and the Ta Da quick dry drops. Also pictured is "Gelous," which is a gel nail coat which creates a gel-like finish on your nails. I purchased that at Sally's Beauty Supply. I applied the oxygen base coat first, then one coat of Gelous, one coat of nail polish, one coat of Gelous, one coat of nail polish, then the Polymer topcoat. It's a lot of layers, but gives you a great gel-like manicure for a fraction of the price and lasts just as long! For extra gel-like protection, I put my nails under a 60 watt lightbulb for two minutes to really seal the top coat. Also, make sure you let each layer dry for 2-3 minutes in between coats. Ignore the wrinkled cuticle area...
seriously where is the cuticle area wrinkle cream?!
Now for the naptime game changer... the Julep Ta Da drops is my new favorite product. Seriously, who has time to paint their nails in the 17 minutes of baby less freedom?! Ok, my child is an awesome napper but still ain't nobody got time for that. Normally, after strategically planning when the best time to paint my nails is, they're smudged or chipped by the time I close the nail polish and grab the baby out of her crib. These drops are amazing...let your nails dry for one (!!) minute and apply one or two drops directly to your nails and you're done. Set for the day with smudge free, gel-like nails...simply amazing. It's the little things in life, right?
I'd definitely recommend these products again...let me know if you try them and your experience! On to begin the day with the munchkin! Enjoy!
