I did pretty much the same thing, buying a UV/LED light, a selection of gel polishes and files and cuticle tools. Gel is a multistep process, and I do it in bed too. I do it in bed because it’s easier to do my toes there. I have two small dogs, one neurotic and the other blissfully clumsy. She walks across my keyboard just to not go around me. I guess I’ve been lucky so far that she hasn’t landed right on top of me in the middle of doing my nails. I’ll have to find someplace else to reach my toes. Thanks for the warning.
