A while ago I came across a very pretty purple nail polish at TK Maxx. It’s from the gel effect range, which I have never tried before, so I was very excited to find out what it was like, quality wise as well as finish wise. Today it’s time for the review. If you’re interested in finding out more about it, keep on reading!
The Nails Inc. Gel Effect polish comes in a pretty odd shaped packaging. Instead of being round or at least rounded it’s flat. The entire packaging is in the same colour as the polish, which I like because it makes it very easy to find the colour you’re looking for.
The only thing about the packaging which I thought would be less amazing is the fact that the lid is flat and wide too and therefore I expected it to be a little difficult to hold, but in fact it’s pretty easy to hold. It was really easy to hold and to work with.
The colour I bought, called Lexington Gardens, is a very pretty lilacy purple colour. It’s not super pastel, but it’s also not the brightest colour that I have ever seen. I really do like it. It’s a perfect colour to wear on a daily basis and it really adds that pop of colour to you overall look.
The texture of this gel effect nail polish is pretty much amazing. It’s super opaque, it covers up your entire nail within just one coat and it’s super easy to work with. It’s not too thick and lumpy, but it’s also not super watery either. I really like working with this polish.
The gel effect finish is probably my favourite part about this polish. I really love that look. It’s so pretty, shiny and just really good looking. I really like that gel effect polishes like this one are so trendy right now. I just really enjoy the shiny finish.
The only teeny tiny downside to this polish is that it didn’t stay in place too well on my nails. It actually only lasted 2 to 3 days, and after that it started chipping a bit. Not like extremely big chips, but just teeny tiny chips that just ruin the clean and polish nail look.
Overall I think this polish is really great. I think the colour is absolutely stunning, I love purple colours like this, and I think the finish is just gorgeous. It’s super shiny and voluminous looking, I absolutely love it. The only downside is that it didn’t stay in place on my nails for too long, but aside from that, this is a great polish!
The Nails Inc. Gel Effect Nail Polish in Lexington Gardens is available at lookfantastic for €19,45.
That was it for today. I hope you enjoyed reading today’s review and let me know which nail polish brand is your favourite at the moment!
