Now, there's no need to spend hours and big dollars in the salon for the latest gel polish manicures that dry quickly and last a long time. One mother-daughter duo is bringing gel polish to women everywhere with their new DIY kit.
Called “The Three Week Manicure,” Couture Gel Nail Polish’s home kit allows women to give themselves salon-quality gel nail polish manicures (and pedicures) for a fraction of the price and none of the inconvenience of going to a salon.
Gel nail polish is a light-sensitive lacquer that quickly dries to a shiny, indestructible finish under a UV lamp. It’s easy to apply, smooths out imperfections in the nails, and lasts for up to three weeks.
"With Couture Gel Nail Polish, nails never chip, flake or smudge, and it’s easy to apply the polish and take it off when it’s time for a color change," explains company co-founder Melissa Jenkins.
Company founders Laura and Melissa Jenkins are a business-savvy mother/daughter duo with a personal connection to their product: it was through their own travels to Europe that they initially discovered gel nail polish, then the Couture Gel Nail Polish company was born from their commitment to bring this product back to the U.S. and make it available to American women, who don’t always have the time or budget to visit nail salons.
As Melissa Jenkins tells in her portrayal of how Couture Gel Nail Polish came to be, “We slowly pulled together the pieces and parts that make up our amazing gel nail polish kit. We researched a chemist, we came up with all the polish colors - which are vibrant and gorgeous - and we put together this great kit.” The line launched with 28 bold colors and colors are updated for every season.
Customer Paulette Gamba says, “Couture Gel Nail Polish enables me to do it at home and within 15 minutes I have a beautiful, dry manicure that lasts for weeks.”
The Couture Gel Nail Polish kit retails for $129.00 (a $179.00 value) and comes with: three shades of gel nail polish, customer's choice; a top coat and a base coat; a salon-quality 36-watt UV Espree Salon Lamp; a step-by-step brochure; a bonus instructional DVD on application and removal tips and techniques; a zip-up nylon carrying case; and a free bonus gift of professional manicure tools.
One kit could yield up to 60 gel manicures, as opposed to paying $35.00 to $50.00 for one gel manicure at the salon.
The kit can be purchased on the Couture Gel Nail Polish website, with free shipping until further notice.
