In Love with a Nail Polish


Hi everyone 🙂

OMG it’s May already! This year is flying by!

May is one of my favourite months, I get all excited about the summer that is round the corner! For that reason, I refuse to get disheartened by the current chilly British weather by adding colour to my make up, nails and clothes-law of attraction and all that jazz…

So I was walking through Fenwick looking for summer-ish make up products when I saw them… The Nails Inc counter featuring their Gel Effect range.

Now let me tell you that I don’t have much patience when it comes to doing my nails which means a) they never look particularly great b) I really need products that dry up fast. I have tried quite a few and have eventually found a few nail polishes that suit my impatient nature but I still can’t fully trust that statements like ‘Gel Effect’ would have the same result on me as they have on Alexa Chung!

They had taster products though so I tried it on one of my nails and then walked away from their counter. A couple of minutes later I had a look at the painted nail and it was all dry and shiny like I had actually had gel manicure done ! I was so impressed that I went back and bought the Chiltern Street Shade as I was looking for a baby pink shade for ages and this looked like just what wanted.


I couldn’t wait to go back home and paint my nails to verify the impressive result it had on that single nail.

First of all I was a bit worried about removing the nail polish from that nail as I wasn’t sure that the gel effect meant it would be more difficult to remove it. I was very happy to see that it can be removed as easily as any other nail polish-no hassle!

I then applied two coats (even just one coat looks great) and da-da! Gel nails by me in my living room! They look professionally done and the colour looks shiny and flawless! Also it’s been 3 days since I painted them and they haven’t chipped at all although I haven’t been careful with them-doing the dishes and glamorous things like that.


I have to say that they are definitely worth their £15.00 and I already have my eyes on these amazing shades:

    I’m currently wearing Kensington High Street Gel Effect, 4 days and no chips! I always wear the Gel Effects when I go on holiday, they’re the only polishes that last the whole week away.
