gel nail polish

hey everyone,

how long does your gel manicure last? i got a french mani and it's been a week and i've already had to cut off 5 nails because of chipping and breakage. the manicurist said my nails are strong, but when the gel peels off, so does my nail.

i do a lot of cashiering at a retail job, so i'm sure it's from handling money and bagging up purchases but the lady at the salon told me it would last 2 weeks even with my job. it was expensive and i'm not sure i want to do it again. i hear i have to pay another $15 just to get it removed.

any suggestions/comments?

As a cashier it wouldn't really work to well. If u weren't dealing with your hands so much then it would last. I got gel for the first time last week and 3 days later they were peeling off. I'm a bartender so I guess that's why. But it doesn't last long.

I use the Gellish at-home gel manicure system. I have only used it once, but my nails lasted without chipping for about 2 weeks, and about 4 weeks slightly chipped.

The only peeling was when I actively peeled the polish. It really didn't start to peel by itself.

I do! I got it from Sally Beauty Supply. I got the big one too, that you can fit your whole hand in. I believe it was about $60-70.
