NOTD: New Gel Nail Manicure

After my last NOTD post in which it was the first time I tried doing gel nails, I had to redo it because that first one was so poorly done. I'm happy that this 2nd attempt yielded a much better result.

I have a problem taking the traditional NOTD pictures so I ended up doing it this way for the best picture result.

Products used:

TruGel Mojito (a turquoise/teal green)
TruGel Crushed Diamond
Sensationail Silver Glitter

I used the primer and base/top coat from Sensationail. Two coats of Mojito was applied, which is a jelly-like finish. I applied a coat of Crushed Diamond and then Silver Glitter was applied on the tips.

I've already had this on for a few days and have done dishes as well as a host of other things. So far it seems to be holding up very well. I'm going to see how long this manicure lasts.
