Frankly, I’m not wild about gel manicures. They tend to do a number on my weaker nails. But I do absolutely love the shiny finish and lasting power. This at-home gel effect collection from nails inc. provides all the glossiness without the UV lamp or complex removal process. You know what else I love about gel manicures? I love the plump, jelly-like finish. And nails inc. included a revolutionary technology in Gel Effect polish to get that same plump-y look we get in gel manicures.
The pigment makes for opaque coverage in two coats. The polish goes on smoothly. And I get a solid five days without chipping (that’s a quite a bit for me – I’m hard on my nails). Here I am wearing Porchester Square:
Layered on top is Kensington Caviar Gel Effect Plumping Top Coat that amps up the plumping factor even more. The top coat has that wet-look and great shine, not to mention extending the lifetime of my manicure. Finally a gel-like look without all the hassle (or price tag!). Gel Effects is available at Sephora.
