So a few months ago I took affirmative action, and decided to detox from the gel! They’re now pretty healthy. I may decide to do the odd gel polish sometime in the future. If I have a special event, or I’m traveling somewhere for work. But I will never have gel nails continuously. It’ll be a once a year kind of deal. Lesson learned. And honestly, I love my natural nails back again. I’m keeping them short, and it feels great.”
