Hi, I’m Kiersten and I’m a mama to a super darling and very wiggly little boy! We live in Utah County in a valley surrounded by beautiful mountains.
Nail Your Polish is all about DIY gel manicures that you can do in the comfort of your own home.
Let me start off by saying that I am NOT a licensed nail technician and never went to any kind of beauty school. I’m actually a software engineer and work full-time for a company that makes literacy and math games for kids.
I have always loved having polished nails though and I fell in love with gel polish because the right formulas can actually last longer than my attention span without chipping.
But when I was pregnant with my first child, I became very aware of the chemicals and ingredients that I was using on my body and I started looking for healthier and safer alternatives. I wasn’t about to take any chances with my baby’s health!
I actually didn’t do my nails for months because I had various concerns about some of the nail polish and the risk of infection from a salon. I also didn’t want to invest in a DIY gel nails kit unless I knew it would be safe, high quality AND not take forever to actually use.
And then I finally found GelMoment! It’s a non-toxic 5+ free gel nail polish that is totally pregnancy safe. It also met my quality requirement because it lasts about 2 weeks without chipping or peeling. And it’s crazy fast and east to use because there is no base coat or top coat. It’s just one step! (So I could save time AND money??…..SOLD!)
Since I knew I would want more than one nail polish color, I signed up as an independent distributor so I could get everything at a discount. And boy was that a good idea! Because I totally fell in love and now I own more GelMoment product than I’m willing to admit to my husband. But I got it all at a discount, soooo…. 😉
I WANT TO HELP MAMAS HAVE PRETTY NAILS
One thing that I have come to realize since my baby was born is that time is suddenly so precious and so extremely limited. Since I work full-time during the week, I have about 3 hours to spend with my son between when I get home and when I start his bedtime routine. And then after that? 1-2 loads of laundry, dishes, and washing my pump parts and his bottles.
I no longer have the time to go to a salon to get a manicure. The closest place I could go is about 15 minutes away from my home and the appointment would probably be a half hour minimum (assuming it started on time). So that’s at least a full hour right there to go and get my nails done. Ummmm, not happening anymore.
So the fact that I can now give myself a salon-quality manicure in about 10-15 minutes whenever the heck I happen to have an opportunity is pretty darn awesome. And I want other busy moms to be able to do the same thing!
And this is where the importance of gel polish comes in. You don’t have to wait for it to dry!! Once the gel cures, it won’t budge. So I will literally do my nails real quick and then immediately go fold some laundry. And I never have to worry for a second about ruining the manicure.
The tools are out there! I want other busy mamas to know how easy it is to still find the means to pamper yourself between all the diaper changes, games of peek-a-boo and feedings.
THE GOAL OF NAIL YOUR POLISH
My goal with this website is to share my knowledge about gel nails and show you how easy it is to pamper yourself with high-quality non-toxic products.
I mentioned above that I am not a nail tech or any sort of nail professional. I am just someone who loves doing gel nails at home.
So seriously, if I can do it, you can do it!
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
Utah’s GelMoment Independent Distributor
