Of course, you can find cheaper (as well as more expensive) salons, but you have to keep in mind that the more highly regarded the salon, the more courses and experience the staff has. This is a definite advantage of professional salons. However, this doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to give yourself a beautiful manicure on your own! As with other manual activities, it takes time and a lot of practice to get to perfection, but the results are definitely worth it… And positively impact your wallet.
For the most part, a hybrid manicure is a guarantee of long-lasting nails. There are people whose plate is not strong enough and in order to have long, done nails, they must use the gel method.

It is at this stage that the real fun begins. The possibilities of decorating your nails are really plenty, and their choice is really a matter of taste – without a doubt, everyone will find something for themselves
Do you like a little shine? A great way to add some shine to your entire nail art style is to opt for shiny nails. Of course, glitter polish can be the way to go, but zircons or glitter foils work just as well. The way to create such nails is really simple. You paint your nails in the color of your choice (remember to harden each layer in the lamp, if you use hybrid nail polish!), apply special nail glue, and then your decorative element. To harden the whole thing, you should cover it with a top coat – a special polish designed for the last layer of the manicure, which can be glossy, matte, or even with glitter!
Water stickers are becoming more and more popular. It’s a very simple way to spice up your manicure, which will work even for those who are just starting with hybrids. Before you apply the decoration, you first have to paint your nails with a selected polish. Then you just need to soak the sticker in water for a moment and after peeling off the paper from the foil using a probe or a wooden stick carefully place it on the nail plate. After drying, cover your nails with top coat and finally harden the whole thing in the UV lamp.

Just dip your previously painted nails in the prepared liquid, and then press scraps of paper to the wet tiles. After carefully removing the rest of the newspaper, paint your nails again, this time with a nail polish. This will allow you to enjoy them longer!
