I got soak-off gel polish manicure today. I'm thrilled, I'm definitely doing it again.

Zoya Hermina is a pale rose gold (to me at least) and it applies very well for a metallic and it's not too frosty or bright to wear for work

I'm LOVING the color! Does anyone have tips for applying yellow shades? Chanel Mimosa is out of my budget so I've tried OPI for Sephora and Sally Hansen. Both have needed at least three coats making it nearly impossible to apply. Plus the extra coats make for chipped nails by day 2

^ Have you tried applying an opaque white shade as a base coat, before you apply the yellow?

Thanks! I didn't really think of that. I think I have some white nail polish leftover from my DIY French manicure days. I'll let you guys know how it goes!

I'm not a huge fan of gel nails. The process is really damaging to your nails -- Worse than acrylics, IMO. But if you want to try them, I would stay away from OPI. I've heard that OPI's gel has more chemicals and is more damaging than Shellac and Gelish.

Ok so I tried a coat of white under the yellow and it still didn't work I think I'll have a manicurist give it a shot!
