Gel Nail Polish. My New Froniter.

I’m a little slow on the new uv gel nail polish.  Ok, a lot slow.  But I’m about to hit the road non-stop for a few weeks and thought that based on some reviews it might just do the trick to keep my nails looking hawt despite the wear and tear of travel.

If you haven’t heard or been suckered in at the salon, gel nail polish is a special type of lacquer that lasts without chipping until you go back to the salon to have it removed.  Regular nail polish remover won’t take it off.  It apparently costs a bit more than the average mani, around $30-$35, but again can be the equivalent of two manis back to back.  Or so I’ve been told.  But I’m skeptical.  Have any of you tried it?  Was it worth it? Was it REALLY annoying to have to go have it taken off?

And if you do recommend,what O.P.I. shade should I commit to for such a great length of time?  Should it be a light feminine look like Hawaiian Orchid or a more winter kick butt look like Louve Me Lourve Me Not?!  Help, I need your advice!!
