Sometimes it's nice to treat myself and have a little pamper. Just lately I've been getting more and more into makeup and nails again and giving myself that bit of extra time when I get chance. My nails aren't great yet, but they can be hugely improved with some decent gel polish and it just makes me feel that little bit more glam and happy.
I was recently sent some of the gel wear collection from NAILED London. I had seen these around Instagram, so I was excited to try them out and see how they were to use and wear. The colours I received were perfect for this time of year as well as a clear base and top coat for prolonged wear and colour stay.
This is a three step system meaning you need to apply the base coat, colour, followed by the top coat which all together should ensure the look lasting longer and wearing better. The base coat lays the perfect foundation for the colour, it goes on thick and smooth leaving you with perfect nails all ready for a dose of colour. The ingredients used mean they bond to the colour layer to secure it to the nail, give it a lasting shine and protecting the nail, whilst being flexible and looking awesome. The colour was also lovely to apply and went on really smoothly. The Top Coat offers a wet look finish, using acrylic to preserve the look.
With all the steps combined, it makes for a quick easy and pretty manicure that I was pretty pleased with, though I am not a fan of my hands right now so I'll just be showing off these gorgeous bottles.
These polishes are of mid range price and are one of the best gels I have tried. I wore these for a good few days without chipping so I was pretty impressed, especially as a busy Mum. The colours on offer are lovely (well done Rosie Fortescue) and these would make a perfect little stocking filler. You can view the full range and buy here where you are sure to find your perfect match for this coming party season.
