For any girl like myself who has a ridiculous nail polish collection but likes the longevity of a gel polish, there is finally the perfect product.
You apply your regular polish and let this dry completely. Then you apply a coat of the polish to gel and cure this in your LED lamp for 30 seconds. Ta dah you have nails that last for 2 weeks in any colour that you want!
This only lasts around 2 weeks so not as long as a regular gel polish, however this is easier to remove, simply buff the top layer and then hold an acetone soaked cotton pad over the nail.
I start a new job this week so wanted fairly neutral nails but with some personality. Hence why I chose this combination. the colour is stunning yet still professional and the glitter is delicately subtle.
This colour was extremely difficult to get a true photo of!
This is a white with a slight sparkle! It is simply stunning!
The sparkles isn’t particularly noticeable on the nail but really makes the colour look bright and fresh!
A pretty colour with a beautiful formula!
First of all, yes I got a little over excited that my nails matches my phone charger so had to take a photo!
For me this is the most perfect summer colour. It is the perfect cross between a pink and a coral and would suit any skin tone!
And to make it even better it is from Nails Inc’s NailKale range which contains kale to nourish and strengthen the nail.
If you want a colour that you won’t want to take off all summer then this is the one!
This polish is advertised as ‘2 coats drying completely hard in 6.5 minutes’ so I was excited to try this product.
I chose this lovely nude pink colour.
First of all, the colour is much more yellow than I was expecting from a nice pink! It’s not a horrible colour but is definitely not as pretty as I was expecting.
And worst of all this polish does not dry hard in 6.5 minutes. if anything it took longer than my usual Nails Inc to dry!
The formula was not the best and was rather runny!
This really wasn’t the standard I was expecting from a £15 nail polish!
I am lucky that in my job I do not need to have ‘professional’ looking nails!
I used Nails Inc Clerkenwell Leather effect polish as the base and Nails Inc Kings Road Foil effect polish for the polka dots.
Polka dot nails is one of the easiest nail art designs yet looks professional!

I have watched her YouTube videos for a couple of years and am always inspired by her designs.

This took me only an hour from start to finish! A really easy nail design for the summer!
I have features this colour on my blog before and still love it every bit as much now!
This is priced at £20 but the quality is clear from both the bottle and the application.
This colour has a very ‘clean’ look and looks like a professional gel manicure! I used the Dior base and top coats with this to give the most perfect flawless finish.
The picture really can’t do this glossy polish justice!
Try one yourself and you won’t be disappointed!
I couldn’t decide between glitter or a solid colour so went for both!
The base colour is Essie take it outside and the glitter is No7 Disco Ball.
The Essie colour has shown up quite brown in the photo but it is a true grey in reality.
I finished off the manicure with Nails Inc Kensington Caviar Topcoat. This is my favourite topcoat that dries quickly and is incredibly glossy!
This has to be my favourite nail combination.
In all honesty I don’t rate this Deborah Lippman polish on its own as the formula is very thin, but over this dark red it is beautiful!
The perfect amount of sparkle for winter!
