Everyone seems to be trying gel manicures lately, and now you don’t even have to go to the salon to get the long-lasting look. Take a cue from Jennifer Hudson, who used the DIY Gel Manicure Kit for a set of shellacked fawn nails before taking the stage VH1 Divas Celebrate Soul show in New York this week. “Jennifer was really excited to try out the kit,” her manicurist Elle Gerstein tells InStyle.com exclusively. Gerstein used the Red Carpet Manicure “It’s Not a Taupe” LED Gel Polish with the Pro Kit, which comes with a professional-strength LED light to deliver salon-perfect results at home. “The manicure lasts about two weeks and dries immediately, so she didn’t have to worry about chipping her nails during the show.” Pick up the kit for $80 at redcarpetmanicure.com.

I am very eager to hear what the nailistas have to say about this. I would to have something I can do at home. I’ve recently started getting silk dust. It’s protective and lasting but a bit costly.
Ive been doing my gel nails at home for three months now. Its great ans saves a lot of money. I bought the above mentioned system and was not happy with it. I went to a beauty supply store and got a better one.
