You may have guessed by now as it is pretty clear to see, I am utterly addicted to all things beauty! I therefore wanted to make a new monthly blog post where I award those products that have been worth every penny. So, what has won my heart this month?
The winner is! …….
Nail Apothecary Gel Effect Top Coat!
The beauty aisles are full of gel effect top coats at the moment. It seems that every brand going has one for sale. Not of course that I am complaining – I absolutely love the effect of a high gloss shine!
Boots had a buy one get one half price offer recently so I decided to take advantage and try this brand out. I am so glad I did, I can honestly say that this top coat is amazing! I posted my manicure of the week yesterday You can catch up here, and this was the top coat I used.
This top coat is described as using special new nail polish acrylic materials to act as a plumping effect on the base of the nails. This means when applying a standard nail colour, the nail polish looks visibly lifted and creates a gel like look on the nail.
I did wait for my nail polish to dry before applying the top coat. It went on thickly but was not difficult to apply. It was fast drying, and when you have got used to using Seche Vite this is a must! The finished result is a high shine, long lasting manicure that lasts well over a week. And, perhaps most impressive I did not get any shrinkage of nail colour that I usually get when using a fast drying top coat.
I am so impressed with this product, and would recommend you try it out if you get the chance.
Nail Apothecary Gel Shine Top Coat is priced at £6.95 and is available from Boots.
