These Gel Manicure Kits Will Save You So Much Time and Money

Making sure your nails look great is one thing that truly never goes out of style. But consistently getting your nails done at a salon can get pretty pricey. Why pay the extra money when you could have salon-quality nails in the comfort of your own home (and at a much lower cost)? Invite your girls over for a spa night and treat yourselves to gel manicures that will last for weeks without chipping. These gel manicure kits will cut the cost of trips to the salon so significantly that you might never go back.

The Pro 45 Starter Kit by Red Carpet Manicure is the ultimate at-home nail kit—and 500 five-star reviews on Ulta alone agree.

Gelish Mini Soak Off Professional Gel Nail Polish Starter Kit

The Mini Soak Off Professional Gel Nail Polish Starter Kit by Gelish is not only a customer-loved starter kit, but it's also a serious value, coming with five cute colors (Gossip Girl, June Bride, Pink Smoothie, Dear Johnny, and Plum and Done). A one-time payment of $90 will save you hundreds compared to salon manis and pedis. One customer even says that they would never pay salon prices again after using this kit and also gives a helpful tip: Paint your thumb separately from your other four fingers since all five likely won't fit comfortably under the lamp. Doing so will also minimize smudging. ($90; amazon.com)
