Good Morning Pouting Beauties!
So I just thought I’d share with you my new obsession, its nail polish that lasts for 2 weeks, no chips, no smudges, and it doesn’t ruin your nails. It keeps them in tip top shape, and unlike previous gels or acrylic which requires a lot of buffing when you wish to take it off, this takes about 5 minutes to “soak” and then just comes off all on its own.
I never really got into the gel/acrylic that everyone went crazy for, I had my nails done with it a few times but being that I have naturally strong nails, I found when I took it off my nails took ages to recover from the overlays and not to mention how “fat” and thick your nails got with all the coats of acrylic/gel on your fingers. I never needed tips, so I never really found any benefit from it, just that my makeup budget on months when I had my nails done, was minimal compared to months when I just wore my nail polish and did it myself.
Yesterday afternoon, I had my first “soak off” of this product at Dream Nails, which I had put on about 10 days ago, and it still looked perfect on my nails, apart from the fact that my nails had grown out. I was sporting a beautiful blue colour on my fingers and a french paint on my toes, I chose yesterday to just go french on my fingers and toes classic, stylish and goes with everything.
Dream Nails uses Nail System International version of this paint which is called “Polish Pro“, and Essie have brought out their own range of paint called “Gelish“. I haven’t used the Essie version as I have only been to the Dream Nails twice but I’m sure its just as awesome as the NSI Polish Pro.
Your fingers last about 14 days as the growth starts to show, but your toes last around 4 – 6 weeks.
So Pouters, have you tried this? I highly reccommend it if you haven’t.
