It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of gel manicures. I’m hard on my hands, and I love any opportunity to receive a manicure that will actually last longer than two days. So I’m excited to tell you about the new gel on the block—Orly Gel FX. This gel manicure system from Orly will debut this July, but I was able to get a sneak peek yesterday during a meeting in my office with the Orly team. Here’s the scoop: The new Gel FX Manicure System promises a two-week chip-free manicure, thanks to a process that involves a gel application, a curing of the manicure using LED light, and an easy removal that involves a nail wrap, not a soak in acetone. Plus, there are 32 colors available that match Orly’s current top sellers, so clients can get a gel mani and a regular pedi, or visa versa, if they so choose. The system will debut at COSMOPROF North America, which takes place July 31 to August 2 in Las Vegas. I can’t wait to try it! Visit www.orlybeauty.com for more information.
