Well, I have now been doing my nails for a while and use various different brands and I am back with a review update!
Opi GelColor – I love this system however it can come though quite thick. This makes it harder to remove and damage to the nail more likely.
Orly GelFx – Similar to Opi, however goes on thinner and it is easier to remove.
CND Shellac – One of my favourites because it goes on a lot thinner and soaks off the easiest. However, it can be hard to handle. You need a bit of practise before you can get the look right and you need ALL THE STUFF in the world in order to make it right. I am still not using a CND lamp, but one day I might invest in one.
Ink Gel by Glam & Glitz – Possibly my favourite for the home nail enthusiast. Vast amount of colours and glitters, nice big bottles and a medium range price. Comes off easy and lasts well. Not easily available to the UK though, price inflated by shipping and customs.
Entity One – A bit meh, to be honest. OK but I found the colours to be lacking. Same size as the ink polish so I would go there instead.
On my review list is Bluesky one step gel which I have yet to try out, as well as a few other indie brands. A friend of mine is testing out Nail Harmony, so if she gives it a good review I will get myself a set.
