#1. My number one game changer in the world of nails for 2011 is the Knockout Nails At Home Professional UV Hardening System. I've only been using it for a week or so, but I am really impressed. It's a little different than doing an at-home shellac polish. This system puts a clear coat on your nails that is similar to a shellac finish--except you can polish over the clear coat, time and time again. The color itself is changeable, while the clear base stays hard and strong. Here is a dummies' guide to how it works:
- Apply Cleaner.
- Apply Bonder.
- Apply Hardener.
- Use UV Light.
- Apply Knock Out Nails top coat.
- Use UV light.
Done. So far, it's made my nails amazing. I'll do a full review after I've been able to try it for a few more weeks. But so far, it's an inexpensive way to have amazing nails when you normally can't. If you miss your acrylics because your natural nails are weak, this may the answer (Superfriend Xina, I am thinking of you specifically!).
