ok so to get back to my sally's trip...
I wandered the nail aisle forever. Looking at everything. Debating on getting more poshe topcoat and serche vite top coat since i use those often. finally I saw this instant artificials made by salon sciences claims to make your nails as hard as acrylics. ok it's 7.99 not bad so i pick it up and keep looking. i was actually looking at getting a wrap kit to maybe try doing that myself... needless to say i decided against that. maybe one of these days i'll check into that but not today. I also wanted to get another file block since i had one and it was old so i tossed it. then I also saw this Rock top coat. i have toyed with getting this one before but always decided against it since I don't have a UV light (which i do want to get) and it says on the box it reaches maximum hardness in sunlight or with a uv light. I also picked up a package of nail bandages just in case i do get a split when i am out i can keep these in my purse.
So all in all I spent 25 bucks not bad i had hoped to spend less but I should know myself better lol I love sally beauty supply.
I have done my nails with the IA and they are hard. I checked MUA for reviews there were only 4 but all 100 percent and would buy again. I am just curious how long this will last without cracking or chipping... the reviews for that were not bad either... I will let you know.
I am gonna actually have my mom try this stuff for her nails. her nails have also sucked since taking her acrylics off like mine have.
eta a couple pics behind the cut
I found this picture on the web of a kit i did not see this kit it's a back to naturals kit with the instant artificials included http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_GL-TZ2nPIGM/SwSwvqN7JvI/AAAAAAAAAFQ/PNfCDlTSlzQ/s1600/Birds+and+Nails+Nov+065.JPG
