It’s always best to keep your nails bare in between gel manicures, but if you can’t, try turning to gel top coats that promise to transform your regular polish into shiny, gel-looking nails.
You don’t have to deal with any of that acetone and scraping, too. These come off with regular nail polish remover – just paint it over, and you’re done!
