Gel nails are by far the best option when it comes to getting a manicure. Gel manicures are great for durability and resist loss of shine and chipping, unlike a regular paint job. Contingent on where you receive the service, a good one can last up to three weeks. However, as many are cutting back costs, in-salon gel manis can leave you and your bank account on bad terms. So why not  invest in an at-home gel nail kit to assist you in refreshing your claws to save money?

Getting that professional perma-shine effect without the expertise of a technician isn’t as daunting as it may seem. From gel topcoats, gel nail polish or an LED kit, you’re bound to have results that may be close to or better than what your nail tech can provide for a fraction of the cost. To assist you in your decision making, we’ve rounded up the best at-home gel kits to set you up like a pro. Keep reading on for more.
