Beauty Test Drive: Gel nails versus the holiday long weekend

In celebration of the Canada Day long weekend, the editors at Yahoo Canada Style took some of the latest gel nail polishes for a test drive to see which could stand up to the road trips, house cleaning, lobster dinners, hot glue guns and patio drinks. The only rule: each polish had to be one that could be applied at home without the aid of a lamp.
