Review: Nails Inc Gel Effect Polishes

Nails Inc Gel Effect Mercer Street, Mayfair Lane and Downtown

The Promise: "Gel polish provides a high shine, super glossy finish without the need for a UV lamp or soak off. Gel effect polish contains the same plumping technology as a salon Gel manicure to provide a flawless, high gloss manicure".

The Price: £14.00 / $14.00

The Stockist: lookfantastic.comSephora

Tested Colours: Mercer Street (blue), Mayfair Lane (dusky pale pink) and Downtown (pink)

The Application: These polishes go on like a dream! They are formulated with a very high level of solid pigments, so the colour glides on effortlessly and evenly without creating any nasty streaks. The polishes also come equipped with an extra wide brush, helping make application even easier - two strokes and you've covered an entire nail! Once the polish is applied, it dries incredibly quickly - much quicker than most standard nail polishes out there.
Interestingly, the bottles feature a colour matched, high gloss cap that reflects the gel effect finish of the polish. Perfect for knowing the exact colour you're going to get before you buy!

The Results: These polishes make good on their promise - they create an amazing gel effect. Whether or not a top coat is applied, they make nails look uber glossy and shiny. Also, when it comes to longevity, these gel effect manicures lasts a good six days before the polish begins to chip and lose it va va voom.

Now these gel effect polishes don't provide the same level of shine as a UV gel manicure but they come very close and, considering they cost half the price of a gel manicure, that is pretty impressive!

Nails Inc Gel Effect Polishes Review

The Pro: The Nails Inc Gel Effect polishes provide an AMAZING glossy finish.

The Con: I am not the biggest fan of the cap. It is not as comfortable to grip as the cylinder shaped caps that come with most nail polishes. However, this doesn't effect the way the polish applies.
